Hp officejet j6480 cartridge error problems

This type of fatal cartridge error (i.e. "refer to documentation" / "incompatible cartridges", etc.) typically indicates the internal micro-electronics of the HP #74/75 cartridge are damaged. The cartridge's electrical wire runs at rear and lower side of the ink cartridge, are very delicate and are somewhat susceptible to ink attack over time, which can lead to premature failures. However, our test group has also seen these failures with brand new cartridges. In addition, the older the cartridge the higher the chance of an internal electrical failure. I suggest you first run a 'Tap 41' diagnostic test to check cartridges electrical health (this is a forced test); you may also bypass the error (temporarily) on most models which use HP 74/75 cartridges. Refer to Inkjet411 youtube videos below on how to access respective printer's service menu and correct:

I just want to install the needed empty ink cartridges on my hpc5180. It said I needed to install a couple cartridges, but now I can't figure out which ones. I looked in the control panel under printers,...

Press the OK and Help buttons at the same time. An extended self test page will print out. On that page will be ink levels.

I am an HP employee. I do not represent HP on this website.

No info on ink levels - either on the machine, or on the PC involved - hP photosmart C4200 all-in-one

You will not be able to see the Ink level on the printer Screen..

Remove the Cartridges, Clean the Contact Points
Install the Cartridges back. the error should go off.

If the Issue still persist, Disconnect the power Cord from back of printer, Press and hold the OK and CANCEL button and connect the cord back.

Check if Solution Center Shows Ink Level

If this does not show the ink level, you probably need to uninstall and reinstall the software as there is no 2 way communication with the printer and PC

Incompatible print cartridge

Take out the print cartridge. Clean the points on the cartridge with cotton swab and try using it again.
