Hi ,
This product clearly needs a servicing as far as my experience goes . Still we shall go ahead and try to reach the solution or else this definitely needs servicing. I shall explain why -
1. check cartridge on right : if you have replaced the black cartridge and have been using the original cartridges then its an issue with the print heads. The black print head needs to be replaced by the local service centre . There is a blockage in the nozzles of the print cartridge that passes out the ink.
2. slam to the right : if i am not wrong this is the carriage you are referring to. Do the following steps (though i presume you might have done it if you have reset the printer)-
a. pull out the power cable
b. open the cartridge door and hold the carriage with your hand and move it manually 4-5 times left to right with as much speed as possible....there should be no obstruction on the way it moves.....if there is a pin / peice of paper / any obstruction - remove it if you can. The carriage could also slam if the pin of its movement has gone loose and it keeps on slamming uncontrolably. This seriously needs a servicing from the local service centre.

My c4180 printer says Ink cartridge problem. Remove and check colour cartridge. Cant get message to go away. I use original Hp ink cartridges


If the color cartridge contacts are clean and there is stil ink in the cartridge.
What you could try is to remove both ink cartridges.
Close cover and turn off printer and unplug the printer.
Wait at least 15 minutes for the printer to reset to clear memory.
Plug the printer back in and turn on and install the ink cartridges.
If you cartridge is not empty and has not expired.
You may call HP and ask for a free replacement.

Error message says "Remove and check cartridge on right" Its a new cartridge I've been using for a few weeks and it has been working fine. I have removed cartridge several times and even cleaned contacts....


The electronics on the cartridge have gone bad. Sometimes cartridges short. Take the cartridge back to where you bought it (they should give you credit for any remaining ink) and buy a new cartridge.

My hp C4180 screen keeps displaying :"remove and check cartridge on right". When I do and place back into the slot it repeats the message.


check the pins as they may be dirty. the pins are the ones of the carraige of the printer. remove the heads and wipe it clean with a kleenex. use distilled drinking water if you need to, not alcohol or any other water. if it still persist check with another cartridge, the cartridge may need replacement.

Incorrect Cartridge Print cartridge in right stall not supported?


I changed the cartridge and it now works. I resent this though because it had been merrily printing before it decided it would stop and I have had to waste a three quarters full cartridge! I just hope the new one does not go the same way

Printer Cartridges won't align C4180 printer


Printer keeps trying to perform an alignment after installing a new black ink cartridge fix:

1. Unplug USB
2. Turn printer off
3. Wait 10 seconds
4. Remove paper from paper tray so printer has no paper to print on
5. Turn printer on
6. Printer messages to insert paper in paper tray
7. Press and hold “Setup” and “ Cancel” buttons and press “OK”
8. Should be good until next black ink cartridge change.

Repeated error message


Very Simple, Probably...

Just remove the cartridge and see if the metal spring clip has broken away from the right wall. If it has, inspect the gold colored circuit board at the back of the cartridge bay...there is probably a hole or dent where the clip slammed into it.

If you have these symptoms, go to HP, and go to the chat support window, describe your problem, and they will send you a replacement printer.

It's exactly what I did.
