    Thanks for your speedy response. I've found a small rubber component loose in the cartridge carrier; when I removed it the cartridge fitted easily and now works.

Without knowing more about the type of printer I am going to guess that the contacts are probably dirty they should on a color printer if this is what you have, be on the back of the ink cartridge on a piece of copper foil little bumps in the foil that match up with something similar on the print head carriage use a ink eraser to gently clean off the contacts all of this without power being on of course.you can also use just a tiny bit of isopropyl alcohol on a lint free cloth an wipe the contacts of any dirt if this doesn't do the trick you may have a defective cartridge unless the print head carriage may be physically damaged that would be a bit costly and working day to day with printers this is a pretty common problem.

Try the contacts I am pretty sure this is the answer.

Good Luck

I have a lexmark x1240 and just installed a new cartridge. I keep getting an error message that says " print cartridge missing" install print cartridge even though both cartridges are in the printer.


If you insert the old cartridge, does it recognize it? If it does, then it's a problem with the new cartridge. Try to check if you already have taken out the protective tapes out of the cartridge.

If it still doesn't recognize the old cartridge, then it's a problem with the printer.

Hp office jet 5610 wont print colors correctly


Some printer software that detect ink levels won't recognize a cartridge that's been refilled. They treat the cartridge as empty although you've filled them with ink. You can try removing the HP software that pertains to the printing functions only (not the scanner abilities). You can also do a Power reset. Remove the printer cartridges, turn off the power, remove both the Power cord and USB cord (if applicable) for 10 minutes. After reconnecting the USB and power cords, install the cartridges as you normally would. The printer should treat them as new.

The red triangle light with the "!" in it keeps flashing. I've just printed some things off but now it's not printing. Need it to print obviously..


ATTENTION light(triangle): Indicates that the print-cartridge door is open, print cartridge is missing, and other errors.

If ATTENTION and READY light is blinking:

Printer initialization
The printer is initializing.
No action is necessary.

Cleaning mode
A cleaning page is printing.
Wait until the cleaning page has finished and the printer is in the Ready state.
This could take up to two minutes.

If ATTENTION and READY light is on:

Fatal error
Turn off the printer, and then unplug the printer power cord for 30 minutes.
Plug the printer power cord into the power outlet, and then turn the printer on.
If the error persists, replace the printer.

If ATTENTION light is blinking and READY light is off:

  1. Attention: door open, no print cartridge, or media jam
The printer is in an error state that requires operator intervention.
Check the following:
? The print cartridge door must be completely closed.
? The print cartridge is correctly installed.
? There is no media jam.

2. Out of memoryThe printer is out of memory.
The page you are printing might be too complex for the printer's memory capacity.
Try lowering the resolution.

Printer display says "Print cartirdge(s)


when you replaced them did you go into the menu located on the printer and tell the printer that you were changing the cartridges out? If not the printer thinks that you still have not replaced them. To do this all you have to do is go into the menu select the option that says change my cartridges (or something like that) and remove the new ones and put them right back in the printer should then recognize the cartridges.
