Try turning the printer off and on again. If the error persists, remove both cartridges and wipe the copper contacts (on back of cartridge) with methylated spirit on piece of cloth or tissue. If you don't have metho, just use water. If you find any ink on the contacts, check & wipe the corresponding contacts inside the printer as well. You'll need a cotton tip or something like that to reach in there.
Often just removing and replacing the cartridge(s) few times is enough to correct the problem.

Hope this helps

"Ink cartridges not recognised" it


Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can
also be poor ink cartridge contacts

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.
