Remove the cartridge and put it in again.
If it has a reset button, push that.
If you have "refilled" your cartridge the answers will be different. Did you?

My 2710 All In One keeps giving an error message that the printer cartridges are...

Is your cartridge clogged,,,

Then in the maintenance settings in PRINTERS AND FAXES,, do a deep ink cleaning,,

If that fails then blot the cartridge on a piece of tissue damped with alcohol.. or let the cartridge sit in some rubbing alcohol for a cpl or minutes and then blot it..

As a last resort if the above fails,,, WARNING NOT A CONVENTIONAL METHOD

try boiling the cartridge for a few minutes,, MAKE SURE THE WATER IS BOILING BEFORE U PUT THE CARTRIDGE in.. so to to remove most of the air from the water to prevent corrosion

Hi Judy

First thought normally pretty good indicator is ...I wonder if it is the black cartridge causing the error appearing on colour

and my second

Are both cartridges OEM? , ones that are not tend to say "for use in lexmark" but genuinne brandname expensive cartridges(carts) will show the Logo, some look alikes fool some and cause many issues with inkjets hence why it is the first thing us tecos check and the most common reason for problems in inkjets.. please ensure both are gen Original equipment manufactured(OEM) and also ensure you did take the tape off the contacts on the cartridge before you stuck it in, alright so...

Asumin we have 2 OEM carts and the error you are seeing is the ! and the colour balls only lit up on the printer and the other one with colour and a black light is off, then we can only have 2 issues, its the carts or the contacts, I take it that you changed the colour cart twice with OEM ones, so we can rule that out, so we have black cartridge or the contacts.

So I think we need to clean the gold contacts on both carts with a slightly damp lint free somethin and the corresponding contacts in the printer that they connect to when you insert them..

If that fails then I try a OEM black and if that fails or even before I would bother, I'd buy her a new one. I saw Epson selling remade whole inkjets with ink last week for 19 ozzy bucks, makes me wonder why we even bother fixing them as makers sell them for little just so you use their kinda ink so if it aint simple with inkjets they are write offs as expense to repair ismt ecomical, many brands dont even make parts for their range anymore if it brakes under warranty the just replace.

Most times problems like yours is caused by the carts not the printer, I get highly suss of any inkjet fault until I know new real supplies installed as it 99 % chance if any non gen inks are fitted it ends up being them darn things causin the issue.

I have seen dirty contacts, I have seen customer thinking they have real carts when in fact they dont, I have seen new OEM carts being old stock and the contacts are failing even thought they are new, they tend to get black spots on the gold contacts I think from enviroment or time. I have seen black faulty carts appearing as colour error lights, I have seen people reading the error wrong too, gezz I go to calls because they arnt plugin the darn thing in, but if your getting error lights we can rule that out;)

Sorry for the delay Judy, I been out the middle of nowhere fixing stuff and just got back, let me know if you need. Cheers

Hp PSC 950 gives me a message to remove and check black cartridge

Did you remove the tape from the contacts of the new black cartridge? If so once the new one is in, unplug the printer from power and power it back on, it should do a full check after a power on off.
