HP envy 4500 is saying cartridges are incompatible? I just got it today.

The Incompatible Cartridge Message comes about because of several things.
  1. You are using Compatible Cartridges and the chips are reading as Empty - Replace the Cartridges
  2. The Chips on the cartidges are incorrectly fitted to the cartridges (Not contacting the Chip Reader in the printer). - Return them to where you bought them from for replacement.
  3. The Cartridges you have are full but Electrically faulty - Return them to the place you bought them from for replacement.

The fact is when you compare the cost to get a new printer to replacing your printhead and cartridges you find you may want to go for a new printer instead. The difference usually is not be worth it.

Previously working cartridge now incompatible

I have a very similar printer. It is very fussy with cartridges. Take it out and clean it with a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol. Electrical contacts and make sure the ink dabs onto a napkin. Dont buy another HP :(
