Question about HP Deskjet F4100 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

I have an error message which reads "The following cartridges are not intended for use in this printer as it is currently configured. Rightmost Tri-color Ink Cartridge" It seems to be reading that the cartridge is not what it is supposed to be. The current cartridge is the one intended for the printer ( HPc6657a) or simply Tricolour 57 and was working fine up until today. I have tried clearing print jobs, reinstalling cartridges, cleaning cartridges, unplugging power and usb cables, holding the resume button There was also an earlier error message regarding the colour cartridge but now I can't what it was. The printer is a HP deskjet F4100

SOURCE: I have a HP Deskjet F380 All-in-One. Error light keeps flashing.

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

SOURCE: HP PSC 2355 incorrect print cartridges error message

not quiet a solution dugguly but i've just had the same problem in reverse, i moved to the us with same printer, ink ran dry, it won't take hp94. after 3 phone calls and 4 emails with hp i learned that all hp printers sold after 2004 are regionalised, therefore a us printer will NOT WORK with UK bough cartridges and vice-a-versa. the only way round this is to call the HP support and ask to be taken through the step by step guide to reseting the region of your printer to the UK regional setting OR and this is my option, get friends/family in the US to ship US cartridges to you in the UK. Too bad as Tesco do a good line in gneric cartridges - Good luck - mattw

I would replace the ink cartridge in question because each one has it's own circuit board and it appears you have a conflict in the printer.

Message reads "cartridge short press power key"


The error indicates that one or both of the cartridges has a short circuit. Please follow the steps below to identify and fix the problem:

1. Make sure the printer is on.

2. Open the printer cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-in-One is busy.

Note: If the carrier does not automatically move to the center, turn off the printer/unplug the printer from the power source and then slide the carrier to the center.

3. Remove both cartridges from the carrier.

4. Close the printer cover.

5. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first.

7. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.

8. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.

9. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new cartridge.
If problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Try taking the cartridge out and without touching the gold connector pins on the back, clean them with a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol. Do the same with the connector pins in the printer. Some times dirt, ink, etc. gets on the pins and does not make good contact. Thus, an error message and perhaps no printing.

The following error message appears on the color graphics display after you insert a cartridge: Remove and Check Print Cartridges . The printer will not print. The message does not specify which cartridge has caused the error. Solution This error message indicates that the printer cannot determine which cartridge is causing the error. Follow the steps below to solve the problem.
  1. Remove the color cartridge from the left stall (which has a blue latch) and refasten the latch. Leave the other cartridge in place.
  2. Close the printer, wait 10 to 15 seconds, then look at the LCD display.
    • If the LCD display reads Insert Color Cartridge in Left Stall , the color cartridge may be causing the problem. Follow the steps below:
      1. Clean the color cartridge contacts.
      2. Reinsert the color cartridge into the carriage and close the blue latch.
      3. Close the printer and wait 10 to 15 seconds.
      4. If the LCD display reads Remove and Check Print Cartridges , replace the color cartridge.
    OR
    • If the LCD display reads Remove and Check Print Cartridges , follow the steps below:
      1. Reinsert the color cartridge.
      2. Remove the black or photo cartridge, depending on which one is installed in the right stall. The right stall has the gray latch. Be sure to refasten the latch on the empty stall.
      3. Clean the black or photo cartridge contacts.
      4. Reinsert the black or photo cartridge.
      5. Close the printer and wait 10 to 15 seconds.
      6. If the LCD display reads Remove and Check Print Cartridges , replace the black or photo cartridge.

  1. Remove and then reinsert the cartridge indicated in the error message.
  2. If the error is still displayed, clean the contacts.
    1. If the error message is Error. Remove and Check Black or Photo Cartridge , the following steps may help:
    1. Remove both cartridges, lower the latches, and close the printer access door.
    2. Turn off the unit by pressing the On button on the front panel. Wait for the printer to completely shut down.
    3. Turn the printer back on by pressing the On button.
    4. When the message display reads Insert Print Cartridges , open the access door and replace the cartridges.
    1. If neither of the steps above fixed the problem, either the cartridge or the printer is faulty

    I had the same problem with a HP C5280.
    Solved by temporarily removing power to the memory chip which "remembers" cartridges and their expiration dates. There is an internal battery which needs to be removed or temporarily disconnected.

    On the C5280 raise the lid and remove the left hand panel (There are 2 screws which require a "star" screwdriver to remove") This reveals some electrical connections at the bottom rear of the printer. There is a small red and black pair of wires in a nylon connector. Gently pull on the connector to break the connection. Now power the printer up. Remove and replace the cartridges as necessary. The error message should go away. If not, try the procedure again, removing the other connections (one is for the tri colour cartridge, one for the black).

    Once you have recovered your printer, you can reconnect all the wires, replace the cover, and you are back in business.

    Up yours, HP!
