Hp 1250 fax - check cartridge

We got this check cartridge error message. It says to check manual for troubleshooting. The only problem is that we cannot find our manual. I have turned it off and then back on and still kept getting the same message. I tried a new ink cartridge and still kept getting the same message. I don't know if this is relavant or not but probably for the last couple of months whenever we change an ink cartridge and the test page prints out, when you put it back through it doesn't work. We've just been cancelling that message, which probably wasn't the smartest thing to do. I wonder if these two problems are related.

    I have the same message on my fax machine, and I've read the manual cover to cover and there is nothing that matches for trouble shooting...I think it's life is over.

We are getting "Cartridge Error - see manual for troubleshooting", on our HP1250 display.

Is this a new HP cartridge, used HP or a store brand? While most refurbished cartridges work, I have had some issues with aftermarket for Dell.

Did this happen spontaniously after it had been used successfully or was it just installed?

More details are very helpful.
