hi steve... the solution to your problem is a costly one. the printer keeps in memory 2 cartidges for colour and 2 for black, when a third is placed in the printer the first one is deleted out of memory same for the colouredand same for the black... therefore you need 3 cartridges each to do the trick.
eg. if you want to use colour cartridge #2 then 1st place colour nuber 1 or 3, then turn it on let it reads, then open door and place in colour number 3 or 1 let it read, then take out and place in coulur number 2 and it will see it as new

clean the cartridge rails and move the cartridge by hand if possible the full length of the rail, turn off, then on to reset. Hope that fixes it for ya

After inserting new cartridges in the photosmart C3180 and closing the door it makes loud clicking sound coming from the cartridge area and won't print.
