Hi, Why is the printer saying "Print cartridge missing or not detected'? They are in the printer and haven't been tampered with at all. Why is it saying this and how can we fix it??? Thanks


I had the same problem with two cartridges (black). Contacted HP and they suggested to clean the contact and something else which wasn't possibly by C4280. Got a mail how to print a paper and sent this to HP. Got a new cartridge. 3 month later the same problem! Made a print with the defect cartridge and sent it again to HP. Waiting already a week for a answer! With the new cartridge of HP the printer is ok

HP Photosmart displays a message saying "Printer Cartridge(s) missing or not detected" though I've just put a new cartridge into the machine. How do I fix this so I can print again?


Remove the cartridge.
Make sure that you removed a piece of clear plastic tape that covers the ink-jets. It's placed there to prevent the ink from drying-out while the cartridge has been sitting on the shelf at the computer store.
Re-insert the cartridge, and be sure that it "clicks" into place.

Uninstall the program from your computer. Plug in your printer first replace with new cartridge making sure to remover the film on the cartridge Then plug in patch cord to computer, program should reinstall if need be you may have to have your disk that comes with the printer. Hope this works, Printers are going for very cheap I would suggest buying a new one if this does not work.

HPPhotosmart C4250 mgs "Printer Cartridge missing or not detected


There may be debris that is blocking the communication between the cartridge and the printer, especially if you are using a remanufactured cartridge. Remove the cartridge and unplug the printer from the power supply. Take a little bit of rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab and wipe off the contacts on the cartridge as well as the contacts inside of the printer. Allow both to dry for a few minutes before plugging the printer back in and re-installing the cartridge. This should clear up any miscommunication between the two.

HP PHOTOSMART C4280 PRINTER WONT READ INK CARTRIDGE.


The cartridge is not seated properly and/or the contacts are dirty. Use a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol and gently clean both the copper contacts on the cartridge and inside the cartridge socket. Allow several minutes to dry and then try again.
