Are you using new HP cartridges or refills? Only HP cartridges have the proper chip in them for the printer to recognize.

Otherwise the contacts on the printer that communicate with the cartridge chip may be broken, bent, or out of place. Take a look at your cartridge, you will see a bunch of metal contacts. The ones on the side are electrical, the two that are near each other, they should be on the top of the toner or the one you are looking for. Look inside the printer for the matching contacts, they should be spring loaded, make sure they look ok, if not get the printer repaired. If they look fine and you suspect that they are making contact with your toner then maybe the electronics of the printer are faulty, have the printer repaired.

Do you have an old cartridge to try to see if the printer sees it, how about a new cartridge, maybe the chip in your current cartridge is bad.

When trying to print a document I keep getting an error message stating, "Cartridge Error consult user guide


It seems simple enough, but this is one of the most effective ways of fixing printer cartridge error. Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached.

To reattach the cartridge check the following steps :

turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head.

Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report.

Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

My printer is printing blank pages. The test print prints all the colors though. But when I print a document all I get is a blank page. I just installed a new color cartridge.
