If 350 & 351 are the original cartridge, you can ask to the cartridge seller for a guarantee. There is a chip inside the cartridge, sometimes the printer firmware failed to detect the chips. Or you can try to find, by Googling "C4272 Resetter Software" to download it.

Black Cartrige Missing


Did you use a brandname ink cartridge - or is it a knock-off brand? If it is a brand name - then the cartridge is most likely defective. If it is a knock-off brand - some printers do not recognize the electronic in the cartridge and therefore don't see it as one being installed.

HP Photosmart displays a message saying "Printer Cartridge(s) missing or not detected" though I've just put a new cartridge into the machine. How do I fix this so I can print again?


Remove the cartridge.
Make sure that you removed a piece of clear plastic tape that covers the ink-jets. It's placed there to prevent the ink from drying-out while the cartridge has been sitting on the shelf at the computer store.
Re-insert the cartridge, and be sure that it "clicks" into place.

Possibly dirty contacts. Try wiping the copper contacts on the print cartridge or, more likely, the printer where the cartridge makes contact.

Print cartridges missing or not detected


Are they new cartridges?

If so, have you removed the clear plastic protection strips from the cartridge heads?

The cartridge cavity in the printer may need cleaning.... perhaps a colorful "spit wad" is lodged in the cavity.

If the printer will allow, run a "clean nozzle" utility from the printer or computer.

Hope this helps!

I buy until now 5 hp351 colorcartridge, after few days is "dead"


Sounds like the problem is that you are refilling the cartridges. Each HP cartridge has a special chip on it that will only read the original ink supply properly. Try a brand new cartridge that has never been refilled and see if that makes a difference.

No black ink print. Prints in light blue


Cartriges have a shelf life. It's printing in blue either because it has dried up or is out. Different cartriges have different timelines but if you haven't been using the printer often, it could have dried up or is simply out of ink. I would suggest first to try cleaning the head of the cartrige where the ink comes out with alcohol and a Q-tip and then if that doesn't work, buying a new black cartrige.
