Cartridge Failure I have an HP Photosmart 475 portable inkjet printer (not connected to a PC) which will not accept a new colour cartridge. Each time I correctly insert the right cartridge it declares "Cartridge Failed" Any ideas

    It IS a rebuilt cartridge and I HAVE removed the tape. Maybe HP (as do Sony) build into their electronics chip a recogniser for only their own cartridges?

Are you removing the tape from the cartridge?

is it a rebuilt cartridge?

Hp c4150 printer won't recognize my refilled black 98 cartridge. first time it has been refilled. how do i reset the printer to accept the refilled cartridge?

Dear jiraphe102,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

Unfortunately, you have the particular brand of cartridge that cannot be refilled. The smart chip on the original cartridge has expired; and will not reset.
You can purchase refurbished Ink online (meaning they have rebuilt the entire cartridge) at the link below.

Refurbished Ink

Or buy new cartridges.

Have a great day!

Just put a new ink cartridge in it. My pictures are printing very dark.

sounds like the yellow is not flowing. if it is a OEM Cartridge take it back, if not try the following link to get it going.
If it is not a HP brand cartridge the colour may be questionable depending on the new brand.
Hope this helps Regards GM.

HP 7410 printer displays error ''remove and check colour cartridge

I think that spring must have gotten loose that holds the cartridge in place, right hand side, put it back where it belongs, might want to compare with the other, black cartridge side.  Good Luck!

Hp photosmart 335 - cartridge failure

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Printer carraige of hp photosmart 475 has jammed at the far end

unplug the device and try to move the carriage with your hand ,but do not force to move it .if it does not moves just again plug in the wire and on the printer.and the carriage will move when the carriage comes out.just check out the cartridges that r they properly installed.
