To rectify this error with your printer, first of all, you need to snap the cartridge in and out a few times. If this doesn't work, you need to remove the printer cartridge from the printer and then clean off the foil contacts. You need to be careful while doing this and do not wipe the nozzles from where the ink comes out. Insert the cartridge and switch on the printer. Now your problem might be fixed. If this does not work, it is better to inform the manufacturer or contact online technical support experts.

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 c6180 states cartridges missing or damaged


OK now this might seem bizarre, but did you go ahead and click the "Black Only" print option?

I have a C6180. Just installed all new cartridges. Tried to print and got the message that Cyan is empty. Tried all sorts of things. Then out of frustration clicked the Black Onl option. Document came out printed in color! Double checked with a picture that has lots of cyan colors. It all printed too! Go figure.

I have a two year old printer not recognizing the cartridge. The print keeps saying "INSTALL BLACK CARTRIDGE". I bought a brand new cartridge and it is not recognizing it. What should I do


You arn't clear whether this message appeared with the old toner cartridge or just with the new cartridge.
If this message just appeared with the new cartridge and not the old one, take it back and get a replacement cartridge.
If the message also appeared with the old cartridge, the printer has a problem with the drum ground connector on the high voltage power supply.

It seems that the cartridge is not recognized by the printer. There are two possibilities: the cartridge is faulty or the carriage unit is faulty. Carriage unit is cartridge housing where you used to install the cartridge inside printer.
Please try this first,clean contact area of the cartridge and carriage unit with dry clothe. Sometimes,bad contact cause such problem.

Replaced HP LaserJet 2840 catridges and now [?][?][?][?] ! error


The OEM cartridges have a chip on them. If the aftermarket supplies do not have the right chip, missing a chip, etc., the machine will not recognize. Placing the old cartridge back in without any toner can give off the same message.

Try rebooting the printer without a cartridge in. Then install the cartridge, either one, and see if that helps. If not, wait for the OEM to arrive.

MP140 do not recognize cartrige


Ensure that you are using original cartridges.

Clean the cartridge sensor inside the printer ink carriage with isopropyl alcohol and cotton. From description it looks like a faulty cartridge contact.

The cartridge sensor is the metal plaque that connects to the cartridge chip, is located inside the printer carriage.
