Well, it does have an internal battery, but not on the left hand side. I've just stripped the whole unit down, removed the flatbed scanner, taken the sides and back off and got to the main circut board on the right hand side. it has an in built battery component which is basicaly 2 small watch batteries placed on top of each other and wired into the board. I have disconnect this component and put it all back together. After all that, its not made any difference and i'm still getting the same error.. time to sick it in the bin and buy a new one i think....

Re: Right cartridge error
Flex ribbon cable at the rear of the housing that the cartidge fits into is probably punctured. It happens a lot with this model. Remove the offending cartridge and look at the electronic ribbon in the rear where it contacts with the cartridge contacts. There is a spring tension wire in the housing that holds the cartridge snug that breaks loose and punctures the flex ribbon rendering the printer useless as there are no part available to repair this HP defect. It is a well known defect / poor design flaw in this machine.

It means you have a faulty or incorrect cartridge installed on the right side position. It could also mean the contacts are dirty or misaligned. Remove the cartridge, clean with rubbing alcohol and reinstall.
This is not a unknown error particularly if you are using cartridges other than the HP brand. Other people will tell you it is fine to use off brand cartridges or refilled cartridges. For myself, I have never had luck doing that - on the other hand, I have never been disappointed using the more expensive cartridges recommended by the manufacturer across several brands including Epson, Canon, Compaq and HP.
Try cleaning the contacts and ink jets. You may have to replace the cartridge. If that is the case, I would return the faulty cartridge and get a store credit.
Just a few thoughts for you to consider. Thank you for using FixYa.com today.
The "clear tape" that you are playing with is called the "encoder strip." A barcode is etched on it that tells the printer carriage where it is. If you clean this carefully (google encoder strip for best methods) you may be able to get rid of 502 error for a while.
I would try a brand new HP black ink cartridge. Those ink cartridges are not made to be refilled according to HP. If you were to call HP and tell them you had a refilled cartridge they would stop the service call right there and tell you to try a genuine HP cartridge.
Hi , if you are getting the error msg 12203 , pperform the following steps, remove both the cartridges from the printer and unplug the power adapter ( black box) from the back panel of the printer, clean the cartridges using a damp cloth .
initially put only the black cartridge and then turn on the system , it will give you the error msg right cartridge missing, you can ignore it and try copying a document .
remove the black cartridge and put the color one in, and then try printing.
during the printing with any of the cartridge inside the printer if it gives out the error msg 1203 then that cartridge has to be replaced...
