Regarding the Photosmart 7500 printer issue (i.e. HP 564 cartridge errors, or similar) which is preventing printing to your printer....let's run thru a full checklist to ensure you cover all variables which could be causing the issue:

CAUTION: the use of compatible/clone cartridges (i.e. sold thru the internet from China) are known to be problematic and may cause printer errors and permanent PRINTHEAD damage since many have incompatible ink formulations (see Buyers Laboratory, BLI, Printer Test Report dated Jan 2014). Original/genuine ink cartridges is only suggested!

1) For refilled or remanufactured ink cartridges which do not have a new chip installed, if you received an "Unauthorized ink", "non-HP ink", "counterfeit ink" or similar message, you can simply ignore/dismiss these messages by pressing 'OK' once for each cartridge, so that the printer resumes its normal operation. If you do not have the full printer driver version installed it is possible that you may not be able to see the cartridge error bypass option - you may need to install the complete printer driver version for your computer's operating system. Receiving these kinds of ongoing alert messages is COMPLETELY NORMAL when using refilled ink cartridges. Refer to NOTE 2 below for more information. Refilling the ink cartridges does not include reprogramming of the ink cartridges, so this will not be a factor: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1407

2) Remove ink cartridge and inspect cartridge's smart chip surface (i.e. gold contacts) - check for scratches or ink residue. See pictures of cartridge chips at following link for reference (see 'Abnormal Cartridge Errors'): http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1925
- Replace cartridge if suspected damaged.

3) Perform Tap 41 PRINTHEAD Health Diagnostics Test (menu access varies by printer model, refer to HP printer diagnostics document, page 45, to view normal display messages, http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1813 )

1. Turn ON the printer.
2. Press and Hold the "Print Photos" & "Red Eye Removal" buttons.
3. Release both buttons - screen should display "Enter Special Key Combo"
4. Press and release in sequence the "Red Eye Removal", "Print Photos", and then "Red Eye Removal"
5. Scroll through the menu by pressing the right arrow button until the display says 'Special Reports'.
6. Select Ok, then press the arrow button until the 'print-mech button tap' menu is displayed.
7. Select Ok (Code = 0 will be displayed); click and hold Right Arrow until 'code = 41' is displayed.
8. Select Ok. The test page prints. If not, repeat steps 2-7 and enter 'code = 43', select Ok.
9. Check the 4th line at the top of the printed report; an electrically good/stable PRINTHEAD 'Pen Status' will state "Pen Status: Pen OK".........if any other message is displayed then the PRINTHEAD may have failed and may need to be replaced (as available). It is suggested to perform the 'Printer Reset' procedure below to rule out printer firmware related problem.
a. If Step 2. does not allow service menu access, then press the 'Return' and 'Home' keys simultaneously so the Engineering Menu is displayed [or depress the 'Return' button four (4) times]
b. Select Service Menu. Use arrow keys to advance to the Special Reports Menu. Select OK. Perform steps 6-9.

NOTE: The Tap 10 extended self-test print may also be initiated via 'code = 10' (use to verify ink nozzle/jetting performance for each color).

* Failure of the PRINTHEAD has nothing to do with refilled ink cartridges; the PRINTHEAD assembly is a separate electronic unit in which the cartridges plug into and feed ink into. Refer to NOTE below.

4.a.) It is possible that your ink cartridge may have been manufactured before Sept 2010 and is now incompatible with the newer line of HP Photosmart and Deskjet printer models. If this is the case then you will need to obtain a new ink cartridge manufactured after September 2010 (all cartridges at retail should now be >July 2012). Inspect cartridge bottom for 'date stamp' - see picture at the following link: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1925

4.b.) Replace ink cartridge with a new HP original ink cartridge to completely rule out the ink cartridge as the cause of failure.

5) To rule out printer/cartridge connectivity (assembly interface/connection) issues please ensure you have followed all steps on the Inkjet411 support page - this includes PRINTHEAD removal and thorough cleaning of the electrical surfaces on the PRINTHEAD and on the CARRIAGE ASSEMBLY: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1451

a. Remove all 4/5 ink cartridges, then remove the internal PRINTHEAD and thoroughly clean rear electrical contacts and carriage electrical contacts. Inspect ink foam ports to see if they are 'wet with ink'...this will confirm whether ink is being pulled into the PRINTHEAD or not. If the ink foam ports are completely dry (no significant amount of ink present when blotted with a paper towel, etc.), then the PRINTHEAD is likely considered too dry to support proper ink flow and subsequent printing operations. Refer to PRINTHEAD removal process at HP.com (link down below) or at the following Inkjet411 link to provide general guidance: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1451

6) If after thorough electrical contact cleaning the problem persists, you may need to replace the PRINTHEAD ASSEMBLY (i.e. get from HP or Amazon), however, as a last ditch effort, you might want to perform a hot water flush on the PRINTHEAD: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2412

a. Remove all ink cartridges from the printer.
b. Remove the printhead - in most cases you will need to pull up on the lever at right side of carriage assembly to unlock the printhead. Lift printhead straight up to remove.
c. Over a sink, run warm tap water directly into the 4 (or 5) ink ports for approximately 2 minutes - this will effectively saturate the foam ports and blow ink out/thru the nozzle plate bottom.
d. Using a lint-free towel, remove water from rear/bottom electrical contacts. Ensure printhead electrical contacts and exposed surfaces are fully dry.
e. Install the printhead into the printer. You may observe a "Replace Printhead message" so you will need to cycle printer power by turning printer off and then on to clear the error.
f. Install ink cartridges and retest printer. You should observe a New PRINTHEAD alert message followed by an approx. 4-minute preparation countdown prompt.
g. If permissible, activate the 'Clean Printhead'. This can be done from the printer's control panel or software printer driver (for example, by selecting 'Tools' - 'Clean Printhead', or similar).
h. If you have reached this point of the troubleshooting and all the previous troubleshooting steps did not work, then the printhead is likely damaged or at end of life* and may need to be replaced.

NOTE: On some HP printer models it may be difficult to remove the PRINTHEAD assembly, consult your User's Guide for specific instructions.

7) If this does not remedy the problem, then you may have a defective PRINTHEAD in the printer (worst case scenario), unrelated to the refilled cartridges.

8) On the other hand, if you observe missing colors or poor image quality then air may have been accidentally ingested into the ink lines between the cartridge(s) and PRINTHEAD. To recover from this problem, you will have to run the "Clean Printhead" procedure 1-2 times to recover the ink system, or perform a hot water flush of the PRINTHEAD assembly (takes about 10 minutes). Watch the video on our support page which describes some of the common issues you may encounter. This type of problem is common and completely recoverable.

SOURCE: How do I install ink cartridge for hp photosmart C4280

To replace the print cartridges
1. Make sure the HP All-in-One is on.
CAUTION: If the HP All-in-One is off when you open the print cartridge door to
access the print cartridges, the HP All-in-One will not release the cartridges for
changing. You might damage the HP All-in-One if the print cartridges are not
docked safely when you try to remove them.

2. Make sure you have letter or A4 unused plain white paper loaded in the input tray.

3. Open the print cartridge door.
The print carriage moves to the far right side of the HP All-in-One.

4. Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then lightly press down on a print
cartridge to release it.
If you are replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the
slot on the left.
If you are replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from
the slot on the right.
1 Print cartridge slot for the tri-color print cartridge
2 Print cartridge slot for the black and photo print cartridges
5. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot.
6. If you are removing the black print cartridge in order to install the photo print cartridge,store the black print cartridge in the print cartridge protector or an airtight plastic container.

7. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch only
the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.
1 Copper-colored contacts
2 Plastic tape with pink pull tab (must be removed before installing)
3 Ink nozzles under tape

CAUTION: Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or ink nozzles. Touching
these parts can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections.

8. Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Then gently push the upper
part of the print cartridge forward until it clicks into the socket.
If you are installing the tri-color print cartridge, slide it into the left slot.
If you are installing a black or photo print cartridge, slide it into the right slot.
Work with print cartridges 69
Maintain the HP All-in-One

9. Close the print cartridge door.
If you installed a new print cartridge, the HP All-in-One prints a print cartridge
alignment page.
10. When prompted, ensure plain white paper is loaded in the input tray, then press the

button next to OK.
NOTE: If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align the print
cartridges, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper into the input
tray, and then try the alignment again.

11. Place the page print side down on the scanner glass and then press the button next
to OK to scan the page.

SOURCE: My refilled ink cartridge still displays empty and will not print

The ink cartridge is most likely chipped & you would not be able to reset the ink level. Purchase an original or a good compatible cartridge. Refiling newer cartridges is not a good idea.

SOURCE: HP Photosmart C6180 Ink System Failure Message

just follow this steps may help you out otherwise you need to change it.
Check to see if the installed cartridge is the correct one for the printer. . If the cartridge is the proper part number, remove the ink cartridge and make sure all the packaging tape has been removed from the copper circuitry strip on the backside of the cartridge. Reinsert the cartridge and try printing again.
If the error continues, remove the cartridge again and clean the copper circuitry strip on the backside of the cartridge, and the contacts inside the printer, by following the instructions below:
1. Use a clean, dry, soft, lint-free cloth. Locate the copper-colored circuitry strip on the back of the cartridge.
2. Wipe the copper-colored strip with the dry cloth. Use an upward motion, from the nozzle end to the top of the cartridge. Do not wipe the nozzle end of the cartridge or touch the nozzle plate. Wipe the contacts only once.
3. To clean the printer contacts, carefully look for fibers or contamination on the electrical contacts inside the carriage assembly, but do not wipe the printer contacts with any object. The contacts in the printer can be damaged if too much pressure is applied during a wiping process. Try to remove any visible attached debris within the carriage assembly by gently pulling the debris off with your fingers. If the carriage contacts show noticeable damage, contact the HP Customer Care Center listed in the printer's User's Guide.
Reinsert the cartridge and try printing again. If the error continues,then you can go for repair or buy a new one .but i advise you to dont go for repairing bcoz it is 3 year old .

Have a nice day and do not forget to rate please...!

Your power connection inside sounds like it broke away from its solder joint. If you can solder you can fix this by opening up and reflowing the connection with a soldering iron.

Hp Photosmart 6510 Black ink will not print


It is a known defect among many PhotoSmart printers, including the 6510. The black ink was programmed to fail at between 50 to 60 black print cartridges. One HP whistleblower said a bug in this programmed failure causes the black ink to suddenly stop printing after 5 to 6 black ink changes instead. When you call in, they offer to sell you a new printer! The service guy I spoke with was extremely nervous. I refused to buy a new printer, given I had put less than a ream of paper through mine. I was on hold for about 10 minutes, then told there was no supervisor, but given an email address to write to. Three weeks later, still no response. Yes, a class action lawsuit needs to happen, not just for the printer malfunction, but for the hours I soent trying to fix it, and new cartridges I bought, thinking I had bad ones.
