Question about HP PhotoSmart 1115 InkJet Printer
I get the message "color cartridge not properly installed" even though the cartridge is new and correctly positioned. Any ideas?
Sometimes the contact pins on the rear part of the cartridge carrier don't make good contact. I used a VERY fine silicon carbide sandpaper (1,500 grit) and GENTLY rubbed it over the little contact pins and also the large vertical contact bar. Blow out any residual dust if necessary, then reinstall cartridge. I find this helps much of the time. Good contact between the pins and the copper contact-strip on the cartridge are vital. From JERRY.
