Hi, This printer takes the "02" cartridges. If the cartridge is not being detected is because the "chip" in the cartridge is defective. Also because this printer takes 6 cartridge, make sure when you are changing the cartridge you are meant to change. For example lets say that blue and light blue are both low. Then light blue actually runs out and needs replacing. Make sure you do replace teh light blue instead of teh blue.
A way to validate this would be in the default screen of your printer the display show the amount of ink remaining on each colour. If you are replacing the one with no "bars" and with the warning symbol and after insertion the printer doesn't recognize the supply (ie shows the message of "HP original supply installed" and go through a "maintenance routine", the your supply is defective :(

SOURCE: HP C6280 with new ink cartridges shows cartridges empty

First make sure you are placing the right
color cartridge into the right slot.
Most Printers are touchy about the
installation of ink cartridges. If the
instructions say to press the cartridge
into the slot until you hear a loud click,
that's what they mean. If at first you
don't succeed, remove the cartridge and
reinsert it into the slot again and press
on it hard till it clicks.
Then your printer should work properly.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

I have the HP photosmart C6280 printer.. 2007 edition and it has all different color ink cartridges, the yellow ink is almost out so it will not let me print anything. I am just trying to print off a word...


It seems simple enough, but this is one of the most effective ways of fixing printer cartridge error. Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached.
To reattach the cartridge check the following steps :
turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head.
Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report.
Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.
