I have a HP Photosmart C4200 series printer. I want to use an alternative supplier colour cartridge, but it won't print! I feel it should. How do I make the printer print with this cartridge?

Contact the dealer for the alternate cartridge, you probably have a defective cartridge that should be replaced under warranty. The third party cartridges are generally remanufactured, cartridges that have been used once (or more) before, then refilled. The quality varies widely. See here for a study of third party cartridge quality.

Would like driver for hp photosmart c4200 printer


I think C4200 is your printer series rather than model number. You can however download drivers for all the printers in this series (C4205, C4270, C4272, C4280) from here:

Just search for C4200 and it will bring them all up.

Enter the model of your C4200-series printer into the search box here. You can either order the cartridge from there or simply jot down the number and look for it at a local shop.

1. Make sure that you removed the tape covering the metal contacts on the print cartridges.

2. Clean those contacts with a cotton swab and distilled, filtered or bottled water. Tap water may damage. Do not touch with curious fingers. Allow to dry.

3. Reinsert, Reset printer.

  1. Check that the reservoir under the cartridges is not full.(This is a V shaped bucket sitting under where the print head parks.)
  2. Clean the plastic the two cartridges sit in with alcohol and a cotton swab. Especially where the copper makes contact.
  3. Clean the ink from the copper portion of the cartridges themselves or replace the cartriges with new ones...
