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

I am out of colored ink. I have plenty of black and would like to print a black only page. my alarm light is on and it will not print, just says out of colored ink.


It's not going to work until you replace the empty cartridge. I haven't heard of any printers, colour printers, that will print if ANY of its cartridges are empty or missing.

Have you removed the shipping tape from the print cartridge? It covers the print head on the cartridge to protect them so they won't leak ink.

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.

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.

Printer won't print-says color cartridge is missing and it is there


Just a shot in the dark, was it a refilled ink cartridge. I know HP has a problem detecting the remanufactured cartridges from time to time. And too, if it is not refilled cartridge perhaps you just have a bad cartridge.
Oh, of course Julie remembered to pull the tape off of the bottom of the ink cartridge, correct?
Hope this did some good, please leave rating,
thank you kindly.
