You would first have to to a clean and test run on the printer. If the printer came with cleaning pads clean the cartridge where the ink comes out. put the pad on a table and wipe across the cartridge

Trying to replace ink cartridges on my HP Officejet 6600 with replacement cartridges from LD Products. The printer keeps telling me it is defective. I've tried 3 different ones and none of them will

The printer is checking for a valid printer cartridge and apparently can't communicate with the LD products cartridges. I wouldn't recommend buying 3rd party ink at all actually, most just shortens the life of your printer and clogs things up. You should try eBay and find some HP cartridges for less in my opinion.

To keep the printer such a time time, dried ink cartridges, if it has ink, then put the cartridges into warm water and put them back after dry. otherwise you need to replace cartridges.
Refill is also an option.
Good Luck

That is the correct driver.

Make sure you have a good cable (with bidirectional support). Check that the ECP mode is enabled for the parallel port in the Device Manager. Click Start > Properties (Control Panel). Click on the Hardware and then the Device Manager. Open the Ports section and look for the parallel port option (LPT1). Double click on this and look at the Resources tab. If the printer is connected in ECP mode, you will see two entries for the I/O ranges. This may need to be enabled in the BIOS (often reached by hitting F1 or F2 when restarting the computer before the OS loads). If you adjust the BIOS setting for the port, you will need to return to the Device Manager and adjust the Port Settings to Enable Legacy Plug and Play.

If you use a USB to parallel adapter, make sure you got one that supports bi-directional communication.

I hope this helps.

Try doing running it through it's aligment process.

It is also possible that the contacts where the ink cartridges mate up with the printer are corroded. Try using an eraser to clean the corrosion off the mating surface in the printer.

This is an older printer and requires a bi-directional parallel cable to connect it.

If you do not have a cable. A computer store may still carry them. You might even find a computer repair place to give you one.

New computer with Windows Vista

I have my HP OfficeJet T45xi working with Vista Ultimate. I used a cable coverter to switch to USB. I must install the printer with the USB cord unattached. Install as T40xi whose driver comes with Vista. Set to USB port 1 or 2. Plug USB into USB port 1 or 2 (only ones of six USB ports that worked for me). When Windows discovers the printer do not let it install the printer and tell it to not try again.

Works for me. Hope it helps you!
