Question about HP Photosmart C4150 All-In-One InkJet Printer
If this problem started after the replacement of an empty cartridge, there ar several possibilities:
1. the cartridge may be installed incorrectly: just a minor inclination can cause a false contact between the carriage and the cartridge.
2. in some cases the new cartridge has removable tape on it, that needs to be removed before installing the cartridge.
just remove the black cartridge, remove the tape if it's still there and re-install it according to the printer's user manual.
3. if this solution does not make a difference, the cartridge may be broken. normally you can take it back to your HP-dealer and exchange it for a new one.
4. if exchanging with a brand new one won't work, there might be a problem with the formatter board, which is painfully expensive to replace. this is a worst case scenario, but if it is like this, it's probably better to replace the whole mfp instead of having it repaired.
