Hi. Try cleaning the contacts where the cartridges go inside the printer. Remove ink cartridges. If that doesn't help, try resetting printer.

My HP c4580 states that the cartridge is missing or undetected.So I reinstalled the cartridges and it says the samething,WHAT DO I DO?


It's a new cartridge you fitted?
If not, it's probably because it genuinely is empty.

If new:
Remove all the cartridges. Switch off the printer.
Switch the printer off and reinstall the cartridges.
Switch the printer on.
Switch the printer off.

If you continue to receive the same error message it's because the cartridge isn't fitted/seated correctly, or that cartridge has a problem.

My HP Photosmart C4580 keeps telling me that the ink cartridge is missing. I have used only HP 74/75 ink cartridges since I've had it. I cannot even scan to my computer.


Most times this seems to be a problem with the electrical connections to the cartridge. A q tip moistened with water or denatured alcohol can be used to CAREFULLY clean the contacts on the cartridge and the carriage , being especially careful not to hook or damage the contacts in the carriage. See the link below.

New ink cartridge in printer saying empty


Assuming you have a refilled or remanufactured cartridge there this is actually pretty normal. These cartridges have no means of checking for new ink in the cartridge so will continue to warn of empty. They will not however stop you from printing as a result.

If however you purchased the cartridge as a brand new cartridge, you may have been miss-sold the cartridge. In which case I would advise speaking to whoever it was purchased from.

Colour cartridge missing but I only want to print


No you cannot. Each one of your cartridges is smart chipped. When this cartridge registers as empty it acts as an on/off switch thus turning the printer off.'

You need to replace the empty cartridge in order to print.

Go printer settings and check option to print only black.

Printer wont print


Well, I'm sorry but the printer folks all hold us up on the ink cartridge rip off! Nothing you can do but buy the cartridge and pay the price. But you may be able to refill it, I've had some luck in this department but it's far better to just buy one. The machine won't continue to print with just the black cartridge...it uses some color ink to print a black and white copy. I really don't understand why someone can't build a sturdy printer with refillable ink that will operate for pennies and be make of metal so it won't break....! You might look around at some of the stores will sell you a new printer with ink for about the price of the cartridge.

I can't get the ink to fit into the slots.


If you have purchased the printer with the ink cartridge then insert the ink cartridges with the GOLD(contacts) facing towards the printer. If you are replacing the ink cartridges, then you must make sure that cartridge numbers are the same as the empty ones.


GOOD LUCK
