Re: inkjet cartridges

Hello Anneller,


I have seen your messages, I would like to provide some suggestions on the issue. Since, I am technical Support on troubleshooting the Printers and Notebooks.


Please try below solutions:


Solution 1:



1. Disconnect the Printer from Computer and then Power OFF Printer.

2. Click Start, select Run in Computer. And type as services.msc at Run Window and then click ok. This will open a new window.

3. In the new window, please locate to the file called as " Print Spooler", and then right click on it and select option " Restart". Once if you are done, please close the Serivces Window.

4. Then restart the Computer once.

5. Then Connect the Printer to the Computer and then Power ON Printer.


I hope this should resolve the issue. If the issue still persists then go ahead next solution 2



Solution 2:



In this you need to Clean the ink cartridges manually once. Please refer to the Printer Manufacturer Manual instructions to clean the ink cartridges. Once if you are done wiith Cleaning of inkcarridges, It is recommended to redo the Solution 1.



If the issue still persists, then please try to uninstall and reinstall Printer Software once.  This should resolve the issue.



However, if the issue still exists then it is confirms that this is an issue with fault ink cartridges.


Anneller, my name is Vikram Kumar Thumu from India-Hyderabad. You can mail me at for any queries related to the Printer issue and also any notebook issue. I'll be glad to help you.

My printer lights ( all three) are blinking with error message of "cartridge problem" I have tried to replace the cartridge with no success and cleaning the cartridge but no luck. Please help.

In this case you will need two new cartridges to identify the problem.
Take one new color cartridge and one black. Now, remove both the old cartridges and install the new ones and restart the printer.
Most probably your issue should be resolved.
Please ensure that you are using the following cartridges only.
Print cartridge information Part name Part description Product number Print cartridge Black HP No. 15 (equivalent to HP C6615 series) Print cartridge Tri-color HP No. 78 (equivalent to C6578 series)

Keeps saying install c


When the printer says "install C" it is referring to the Cyan (blue) ink cartridge. If this is not a new cartridge, you might have to replace it. If this is a new cartridge, try following these steps.

1. Unplug the power cable.
2. Remove all 4 ink cartridges.
3. Close the ink cover
4. Plug the power back in.
5. Wait for the machine to warm up and tell you that the ink is empty.
6. Reinsert all 4 ink cartridges.

If you keep getting the same message you should try another cartridge. You can put the yellow cartridge in the blue spot to see if you get the same message. If you get the same message then the machine is broken. If you get a new message then the cyan cartridge needs to be changed.

4110 officejet series all-in-one error message saying i installed incorrect ink cartridge? what do i do? it is the correct one

Supported HP Inkjet cartridge part numbers The HP Officejet 4100 all-in-one series products use the ink cartridges listed in the table below. HP Inkjet cartridges HP 56 black cartridge (19 ml) HP 57 tri-color cartridge (17 ml) HP 28 tri-color cartridge (8 ml) Replacing the ink cartridgesThe power must be turned ON to the all-in-one or the print carriage will not move to the right.
  1. Locate and open the print cartridge access door on the right side of the all-in-one. The print cartridge carriage will move to the right for access. Figure 1: Opening the HP Officejet 4100 seriesc00121089.jpg
  2. Press down gently on the top of the old ink cartridge to release it from the print carriage. Figure 2: Removing an ink cartridgec00121090.jpg
  3. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and remove the protective tape from the cartridge as shown in Figure 3. Do not touch the gold-colored contacts. Figure 3: Removing the cartridge tapec00121091.jpg
  4. Holding the ink cartridge with the printed label up, slide the cartridges one at a time into the print carriage and press them into position as shown in Figure 4. If the cartridge does not snap easily into position, it is not aligned correctly. Remove the cartridge and reposition it. Do not try to force the cartridge into position. The black ink cartridge (HP #56) goes on the right side and the color cartridge (HP #57 or HP #28) goes on the left side. Close the ink cartridge access door when the ink cartridge has been installed. Figure 4: Installing the ink cartridgesc00121092.jpg
  5. A message will appear on the front panel requesting that the ink cartridges be aligned. Follow the steps below to align the ink cartridges:
    1. Press Enter on the all-in-one front panel to start the ink cartridge alignment process.
    2. After the Alignment page prints, place the page into the ADF upside down and with the printed side down as is shown in Figure 5.
    3. Press Enter. The all-in-one will scan the alignment page and finish aligning the cartridges.
    Figure 5: Aligning the ink cartridgesc00121093.jpg
Correcting error messages that appear after changing a cartridgeAfter inserting the cartridge, the Check Print Cartridge light flashes or one of the following messages appears on the computer monitor:
  • Check the black (or color) cartridge
  • Replace the black (or color) cartridge
  • The wrong black (or color) cartridge is installed
These messages indicate that the ink cartridge is not making good electrical contact, is bad, or is the wrong cartridge. Complete the following steps to diagnose and correct the condition:
  1. Open the front of the unit to access the print cartridges (as shown in Figure 1).
  2. Remove the ink cartridge and inspect it.
  3. Verify that it is the correct part number and if it is, reinsert it.
  4. Close the lid to see if the problem is corrected.
  5. If the message is still displayed after a few seconds, remove the ink cartridge again.
  6. Unplug the power cord from the back of the unit.
  7. Clean the electrical contacts on the ink cartridge with a soft clean cloth slightly dampened (not wet) with clean water. (See Figure 6) Each contact is very small and shaped like a rounded square. Figure 6: Cleaning the cartridge contactsc00121094.jpg
  8. Allow the ink cartridge to dry for a few minutes before reinserting the cartridge(s) and turning on the printer.
  9. If the problem remains, replace the ink cartridge.
  10. If the problem still exists after trying all of the steps above, the unit may need to be serviced. Contact HP for further troubleshooting or to arrange to have the unit serviced.
Make sure what ur using isn't a refilled cartridge and if it is check the expiration date, if nothing is wrong then you need to get urself a new printer or an upgrade so call up hp at 1800-474-6836 and get help of them,they'll guide you to a new /upgrade printer.
it's not a nice way of saying it but someone has to give you the bad news

Check print cartridge blinking cartridges refilled today and installed laptop not recognising printer as result

    • If the message on the computer does not identify a particular cartridge (it says only Print cartridge error ), follow the steps below to determine which cartridge is causing the problem.
      1. Open the cartridge access door.
      2. Remove either cartridge (not both).
      3. Close the cartridge access door.
        • If the computer message is Print Cartridge Error , then the print cartridge that is still in the printer is the problem cartridge.
        • If the computer message is NOT Print Cartridge Error (instead, it says that the cartridge you have removed is ...Either missing, not detected, or incorrectly installed), then the cartridge you have removed is the problem cartridge.

  • If the problem still occurs, the electrical contact between the cartridges and the printer might be bad. Removing and reseating the cartridges might help. Also, you can clean the electric contacts on the cartridges with a dry cloth.
Hope that will help solve your problem!

Error message HP Officejet 7310 "remove and check cartridge on right. Removed cartridge, checked it (nothing), installed it back - still same message. Installed new original HP cartridge - still same...

Can you find a friend with a similar HP printer, i.e., one that accepts the same model-number of ink-cartridge? If the cartridge gives the same error-message in the other printer, it's time to responsibly recycle your "dead" cartridge, and give the brand-new cartridge to your friend, for his/her usage.

Accept anyway. This is a problem with vista - it wants to assign it's own driver and doesn't like outside software such as Lexmark's.
