Question about HP PhotoSmart C4480 All-in-One Printer InkJet

Open Question

C4400 printer will not work

Message on the screen says "Print Cartridge(s) missing or not detected." I went to google and followed the solutions provided by HP. The cartridges are HP products (one color and one black and white) and have been working fine until a few days ago.
Any ideas???

SOURCE: The printer doesn't recognize the new original HP color cartridge

There is a small spring that holds the ink cartridge in the ink holder. You will see it stick out from the right hand side of the ink holder where the ink cartridge slides in. If that spring isn't being held to the ink holder by two plastic tabs, (I.E. the plastic tabs are broken) the printer will never recognize the cartridge. If the printer is still under warranty I would contact HP or an authorized repair center for HP. Both the black and color ink holder has this spring. I know of no way to repair this kind of breakage.

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.

    • If the message on the computer does not identify a particular cartridge (it says only Print cartridge error ), follow the steps below to determine which cartridge is causing the problem.
      1. Open the cartridge access door.
      2. Remove either cartridge (not both).
      3. Close the cartridge access door.
        • If the computer message is Print Cartridge Error , then the print cartridge that is still in the printer is the problem cartridge.
        • If the computer message is NOT Print Cartridge Error (instead, it says that the cartridge you have removed is ...Either missing, not detected, or incorrectly installed), then the cartridge you have removed is the problem cartridge.

  • If the problem still occurs, the electrical contact between the cartridges and the printer might be bad. Removing and reseating the cartridges might help. Also, you can clean the electric contacts on the cartridges with a dry cloth.
Hope that will help solve your problem!

Brand new Print cartriges not being detected...


If 350 & 351 are the original cartridge, you can ask to the cartridge seller for a guarantee. There is a chip inside the cartridge, sometimes the printer firmware failed to detect the chips. Or you can try to find, by Googling "C4272 Resetter Software" to download it.
