Some HP printers do this after a non original cartridge used The printer should still be able to operate even with the light flashing. If this does not work you may require to replace the print head.

My HP Photosmart C7280 does not recognise refilled cartridge.


Yes that is because when you get a cartridge refilled then what may have happened is when you gave a print command some of the ink may have splattered onto the ink spraying sensors(usually happens with refilled cartridges on any printer).Its because of the heat generated with which the ink nozzles cannot handle as the ink that is sprayed from refilled cartridges is a little more than regular original ink cartridges.Dip a cotton swab in water wipe the copper contacts on the cartridge.Then wipe around the place where the cartridges sit and also wipe the carriage rod which is inside the printer (metal rod)along which ur spraying mechanism(carriage) moves. If this does not resolve your issue call in to hp at 1800-474-6836 and you can purchase original cartridges that are just for 11 dollars each.........or you can purchase a combination pack which will be cheaper

Alarm flashes ink emptyhas ink! color was printing only yellow/green now prints only red/pink!


any chance it has dried out? run the test / head cleaning / did you reset the cartridge when you replaced it? generally if one or two colors work - the problem is the ink cartridge or the head for the colors not working. Did you remove the "tape" on the new cartridge?

Ink and printer


You'll need to either put it back in or replace it.
You need to have both color and black cartridges in for your printer to work.
Never throw away cartridges, save money and refill them or you can take them to most any computer store for recycling.

Failing to install ink cartridges


The cartridges have small electronic chips on them that notify the printer if the same cartridge is refilled and used again. To get around this check you will need to have atleast two empty cartridges so that you can refill and cycle them there by fooling the printer's check. Let me knoe if you need any more info regarding this.

Refilled my Dell Ink Cartridge


It's never going to recognize a product that is not original even if it's refilled in the Dell cartridge. That's happened to me--you get used to it. Dell just wants you to get it from THEM and not from any where else. I have a 922 All-in-One....It's been good for the past 3 years.

HP Deskjet 1220C cartridge recognition problem


This happens when the connections on the cartridge get old. Especially when you refill or buy non HP Cartridges, try buying brand new hp cartridges and you might be able to get a couple refill out of them before this happens again.
