    My HP Photosmart C4280 is cheap but perfectly adequate. I haven't over-used or abused it.It has reasonably new ink in it and not the cheap stuff.   I did a few letters and 2 colour photos 2 days ago and before I could continue I got the message, "Print Cartridges missing or not detected."
    1)  I checked that the ink cartridges had not come loose.
    2) I checked the wires.
    3) I re installed the printer ..  .....  no joy.

Lexmark 352dn 31 missing or defective cart


The 31 error message means that the printer is detecting the toner cartridge is either faulty or not installed properly. You might need to replace your toner cartridge.

Missing color ink cartridge...have full black cartridge...Printer won't print.


Hello, this is to be expected . You will need to have all cartridges installed and with ink in, even if you only want to print in black, or the printer will detect an error and won't work.

I have installed colour cartridge 351XL and black 350 cartridge but my printer still says Print cartridges missing or not detected


Have you removed the shipping tape from the print cartridge? It covers the print head on the cartridge to protect them so they won't leak ink.

Printer won't print-says color cartridge is missing and it is there


Just a shot in the dark, was it a refilled ink cartridge. I know HP has a problem detecting the remanufactured cartridges from time to time. And too, if it is not refilled cartridge perhaps you just have a bad cartridge.
Oh, of course Julie remembered to pull the tape off of the bottom of the ink cartridge, correct?
Hope this did some good, please leave rating,
thank you kindly.

Keep getting message "Print cartridge(s) missing or not detected"


If these are new cartridges then you can try wiping the contacts and the pins with a dry paper towel then re install them. do not us tissue as some of them have lotion on them. If these are remanufactured cartridges return them for an exchange.
