"Print Cartridge missing or Not Detected"

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!! Please!!
I see many people are having the same problem as I am. When I turn the printer on, the little screen on the printer says "Print cartridge missing or not detected". Both cartridges are inserted correctly. And are full. I have been through all the suggested remedies; cleaning the copper-coloured contacts; re-inserting the cartridges; taking the power cable off, and re-connecting the printer after 20 seconds. Still the same problem persists. If I buy a new cartridge to finally test the printer, then the previous cartridge is lost, since I am aware that the printer recognises by a code wach cartridge, and therefore the 350XL cartridge I have now, will need to be thrown away. So I am looking for a solution, before I have to throw away this cartridge.

Kindly check the number of your cartridge and see if that cartridge is the one match to the cartridge required in your printer. What's the last thing u do before the error pop up?

I have installed colour cartridge 351XL and black 350 cartridge but my printer still says Print cartridges missing or not detected


Have you removed the shipping tape from the print cartridge? It covers the print head on the cartridge to protect them so they won't leak ink.

There may be debris that is blocking the communication between the cartridge and the printer, especially if you are using a remanufactured cartridge. Remove the cartridge and unplug the printer from the power supply. Take a little bit of rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab and wipe off the contacts on the cartridge as well as the contacts inside of the printer. Allow both to dry for a few minutes before plugging the printer back in and re-installing the cartridge. This should clear up any miscommunication between the two.

I am message is print cartridge not detected printer not working


moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngHello.
Lift the cover from your right while being in front of the printer. Leave it powered on.
You are going to see the cartridges coming in the middle. Here you can remove your cartridges by pressing on top & pulling it at the same time. To replace, just reverse the steps.
I hope that this helps you.

You may have a defective cartridge. I'd take them back to where you bought them for an exchange.

Are they new cartridges?

If so, have you removed the clear plastic protection strips from the cartridge heads?

Brand new Print cartriges not being detected...


If 350 & 351 are the original cartridge, you can ask to the cartridge seller for a guarantee. There is a chip inside the cartridge, sometimes the printer firmware failed to detect the chips. Or you can try to find, by Googling "C4272 Resetter Software" to download it.

Keep getting message "Print cartridge(s) missing or not detected"


If these are new cartridges then you can try wiping the contacts and the pins with a dry paper towel then re install them. do not us tissue as some of them have lotion on them. If these are remanufactured cartridges return them for an exchange.
