You have to take off the clear strip of plastic over the copper area, or the printer will not detect it. There should be a green pull-tab on the cartridge.

The yellow light blinks and it won't print

I also started having problems with my HP 870Cse when I began using refilled cartridges and had ink leakage (cartridge contacts corrupted). Check for this problem. If so, remove cartridges and gently clean the spillage. Then try using HP brand cartridges and see if this doesn't remedy the problem.

HP Deskjet 842C

make sure both carts are ok usally there is black and colour, sometimes i've seen the spring where cartridge goes break loose, not ecomical to repair, cheaper to replace, modern world, 5 - 10 years ago we would fix but now labour is too high and replacement are too cheap. you could try a little metho and clean contacts on cart and machine

HP Deskjet 1220C cartridge recognition problem

This happens when the connections on the cartridge get old. Especially when you refill or buy non HP Cartridges, try buying brand new hp cartridges and you might be able to get a couple refill out of them before this happens again.
