The only solution I found is to replace the cartridge - I did it and it works fine now. B4 this, I cleaned the cartridge connectors according to HP instructions, but the error message kept coming back, but once in a while, I could print!?! It's possible, since these cartridges need super-special care when handling, that either dust somehow disrupted recognition of cartridge or maybe during the initial install of the cartridge I accidently touched somewhere I shouldn't have!...

Color Cartridge


When this error appears in your printer check if ink are smeared on the holder where the contact panel is with the cartridge. To fix this issue use the Kleenex(perfume ) added with few drops of water to dampen it and clean off those contact on the holder. You should let the unit sit 24 hours for best results. Before printing anything run aligned thecartridgesa couple times then run clean cartridges a couple of times. Print the test page to look for the condition.

Thank you !!

My printer error says: Color cartridge inserted is not intended for use in this printer

That printer is intended to use the HP 95 and HP 97 cartridge. If anything other than these are inserted then it will not operate. Check to be sure your color is one of these two. If it is then you should take that cartridge back to where you bought it and get it exchanged or contact HP.
