Question about HP OfficeJet 7310 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I replaced my black ink cartridge. It told me to remove it and check it several times, then finally I somehow managed to get it to work. A couple of days later, it spontaneously started giving me the same error message again, and I can't get it to work this time. I really really need to be able to print ASAP and I don't want to have to change everything to dark blue. This is an HP Inkjet All-in-One 7310.
I had this problem and thanks to this and other forums discovered the root cause was a small plastic retention tab on the carriage that holds the spring. Fortunately, my flex cable was not damaged so I fixed this with $5 of quikplastic.
Attacheda are pics of what I did but in a nutshell, I formed the quikplastic through hole where the plastic tab used to be, around the spring and sandwiched the carriage on both sides. After it cured, I had a piece of plastic/expoxy which could hold the spring in place while still allowing print cartridge to be installed.
It's been 5 days as of this post and printer has been working fine (fingers crossed that it stays that way).
This $5 fix + 15 mins of times sure beats buying a new all in one.
Hope this helps someone in same boat as me.

Probably the metal spring inside the printer chute is out of place - I had to adjust onto the plastic ridges inside - see HP website solution at:
