If using refilled HP 950, 950XL, HP 951 or HP 951XL ink cartridges you observe an "Unauthorized ink", "non-genuine ink cartridge may affect warranty", "counterfeit ink" or similar message, you can simply ignore/dismiss these messages by pressing 'OK' once for each cartridge, so that the printer resumes its normal operation.

Printer flashes error "replace color cartridge"


Try unplugging the machine and removing all the ink cartridges.
Now plug the power back in. Wait a minute or two and then reinsert the ink cartridges.

If you get the same message, the machine's ink sensors are probably finished.

Color LaserJet 3800 series - Error message reads

You have a problem with the slot that the yellow cartridge slides into.
Pull out all the cartridges and reseat them. Power cycle the printer. If the 10.92.03 is still there, then something is broken inside. Pull the cartridges and look inside on the right side. Compare that area for the yellow toner to the other colors. Look for a steel wire that is out of place at the yellow position on the inside right frame. The part is a cartridge lock. If it's broken, you will need a tech to replace all the locks at the same time.

Even if it's not a broken yellow cartridge lock, something else is physically broke and you will still need a tech.

Due to the age of the printer, i'm guessing that you don't have a warranty.
