Don't use refill cartridges, because it will damage your printer someday. and will cost your parts as brand new. so better use the original ink.

SOURCE: Remove and check color cartridge
the problem is the little poorly designed metal thing that is holding up the ink cartridge get's stuck between the cartridge and the printed circuit and it brakes the circuit.must have been some **** drawering on a napkin that came up with that one.wasted a nice unit for that two cent piece of metal.

i don't know who checks these messages, but I have the exact same problem, also with my mom's printer. it is no longer under warranty so HP wants to charge me thirty dollars for them to tell me how to fix it over the phone. no thanks.

There is a small spring that holds the ink cartridge in the ink holder. You will see it stick out from the right hand side of the ink holder where the ink cartridge slides in. If that spring isn't being held to the ink holder by two plastic tabs, (I.E. the plastic tabs are broken) the printer will never recognize the cartridge. If the printer is still under warranty I would contact HP or an authorized repair center for HP. Both the black and color ink holder has this spring. I know of no way to repair this kind of breakage.
