I had the same problem with a HP C5280.
Solved by temporarily removing power to the memory chip which "remembers" cartridges and their expiration dates. There is an internal battery which needs to be removed or temporarily disconnected.

On the C5280 raise the lid and remove the left hand panel (There are 2 screws which require a "star" screwdriver to remove") This reveals some electrical connections at the bottom rear of the printer. There is a small red and black pair of wires in a nylon connector. Gently pull on the connector to break the connection. Now power the printer up. Remove and replace the cartridges as necessary. The error message should go away. If not, try the procedure again, removing the other connections (one is for the tri colour cartridge, one for the black).

Once you have recovered your printer, you can reconnect all the wires, replace the cover, and you are back in business.

Up yours, HP!

Error message the following ink cartridge is not intended for use


I would replace the ink cartridge in question because each one has it's own circuit board and it appears you have a conflict in the printer.

I have a 1610 series printer/scanner and my black cartridge needed replacing. I have bought 2 cartridges--I from HP and 1 from Currys (a replacement for the 338 cartridge) but both give me a error message...


Hi Hp 49 is available in the UK I just looked it up on www.amazon.co.uk from about £10.00 for the small ink one and about 20 for the bigger ink capacity.
I repair printers for a living and I have not heard that the 49 was out (that said I the first person to be told) Hope this helps Ian

HP PSC 2355 incorrect print cartridges error message


not quiet a solution dugguly but i've just had the same problem in reverse, i moved to the us with same printer, ink ran dry, it won't take hp94. after 3 phone calls and 4 emails with hp i learned that all hp printers sold after 2004 are regionalised, therefore a us printer will NOT WORK with UK bough cartridges and vice-a-versa. the only way round this is to call the HP support and ask to be taken through the step by step guide to reseting the region of your printer to the UK regional setting OR and this is my option, get friends/family in the US to ship US cartridges to you in the UK. Too bad as Tesco do a good line in gneric cartridges - Good luck - mattw

Use of 852 and 855 cartridge in hp 6210 officejet printer


This quite often happens with CLONE cartridges and happens very infrequent with original cartridges.

The cause is the ink level chip used in clones is quite often a very cheap chinese copy and very prone to failure or misalignment

Either way take them back and get them changed is my advice

Trying to put back in the color ink cartridge for 6210


The printers are bad about damaging the ribbon cable inside the print cartridge when you replace the ink cartridge. There is a small wire spring that gets pushed through the cable rendering the printer useless. Poor design by HP. How do I know? I did it to mine. It's cheaper to buy a new one then to have it repaired.

Melted plastic under black ink cartridge


10 months well then it is under warranty still. HP replace machines under warranty, no easy fix, never known of melting.
