Question about HP Envy 4500 Inkjet Multifunction Printer - Color - Plain Paper P

HP envy 4500 is saying cartridges are incompatible? I just got it today.

I've tried to restart the printer. Take the cartridges out and put them back in. None of that is working though.

The Incompatible Cartridge Message comes about because of several things.

  1. You are using Compatible Cartridges and the chips are reading as Empty - Replace the Cartridges
  2. The Chips on the cartidges are incorrectly fitted to the cartridges (Not contacting the Chip Reader in the printer). - Return them to where you bought them from for replacement.
  3. The Cartridges you have are full but Electrically faulty - Return them to the place you bought them from for replacement.

SOURCE: HP photosmart C4480 printer cartridge incompatible error

Well....I solved the problem......bought a new Canon printer!!

I tried everything...unplugging, cleaning everything that was mentioned above. I was onto HP online support several time, but they were absolutely no help at all...they basically told me that the cartridge must be damaged or ink dried up and to buy a new cartridge to see if the error persisted.....I don't think so!!!
I will never by HP again after having issues with the last two I have had. I love my new Canon printer it is EVERYTHING that HP wasnt.

SOURCE: incompatible print cartridge - tri color

Here's two possible solutions...you can replace the cartridge as some times they can be prone to electric/electronic problem which renders them useless. You may be able to return the defect cartridge.

Option two is to reset the printer by following these steps:
1)Make sure your cartridges are installed.
2)Unplug the power to the printer and wait about 20 seconds
3)Press and hold the # and 3 keys (while unplugged)
4)Plug the power back in (you should see a reset message on the machine)
5)Release the # and 3 keys and follow the prompts

SOURCE: Hp Designjet 500 not recognising ink cartridges.

I've had that problem with unfinished cartridges showing up as empty. I imagine that it could be a bad cartridge as well but I hear and feel the ink when I shake the cartridge. Therefore the ink is there. I also have a problem with some inks. I find the HP inks work perfectly whereas other manufacturers' inks work on and off. I need a solution as well. Right now I have full cartridges that are not picked up by the Designjet sensor. Any idea?

Printer says black cartridge is incompatible for this computer. I bought 2 more 61 black cartridges & have the same message. This Envy 4500 uses 61 & that is all that has ever been in it.


Try to see if you have the proper cartridge inserted on the right slots. Might as well check if you bought the right one.
Serials matter make sure to grab those and present them to the store you're trying to purchase to.
