Get a message to remove and check color cartridge. What am I supposed to control?

HP Photosmart 2575.

Can't see anything useful in the documentation for the printer.

Is this just a cartridge duff?


Hello Richard

Still having this problem? Looks like it might be the cartridge or dirty contacts. The following article explains how to fix the mistakes of the print cartridge. The print cartridge errors

If the problem persists after going through the article, I suggest to try a new cartridge to isolate the problem. If the HP ink cartridge is still within its warranty you can contact the support to replace/Exchange it. Cartridges have their own guarantee.

  • error 'remove and check color cartridge '.

    I have a HP all in one 7400 printer / / scanner/copier/fax. All of a sudden I get an error 'remove and check color cartridge. I made several times and cleaned all of the excess ink that I see. The printer/turn off has no effect. Disconnection/reconnection of power also no effect. Any suggestions on other solutions?

    I had the same problem with my HP Officejet 7410 so cleaned the contacts of carriage and ink cartridge by directions on this link:

    After my first attempt to cleaning these contacts, I reinserted the cartridge and tried to print again, but I got the same error message.  Then I removed the cartridges (color & black) of their slots and after transport, I discovered the lower part of the cart was covered with ink, pointing a flashlight so... using more than a dozen cotton pads, I cleaned the bottom of the cart at best.  In addition, thinking that maybe the ink cartridge no was not manufactured exactly the right size and shape, when I inserted the cartridges in their slots I slightly pressed them to make sure the contacts could touch.

    I was happy to see that now the error message is gone and my printer print again... Oh well, at least for now.

  • Suddenly, my 4215 all in one HP printer error message reads "remove and check right cartridge".

    My all-in-one 4215 printer suddenly flashes an error message on the screen saying "remove and check right cartridge"... For what I'm checking, it is unclear. I deleted and reinstalled the cartridge and it seems OK to me... It is not empty, and the last thing that he printed was fine... Help!

    I am betting that the printer or the ink cartridge contacts are dirty. This happens over time. The document below will guide you through cleaning the contacts. Let me know what happens.


  • Officejet 7410 - Remove and check color cartridge error message

    THiiS comes well when printing. Removed, checked and put back, and it was no help. Replacement cartridge and the message remained. Cannot print even in B & W with color removed cartridge. Can not scan or fax then this error message is displayed and I can't delete it.

    Use Office Depot cartridges rebuilt for more than a year without any problems before.

    Updated - I sent an e-mail to HP support. They responded and gave me the order to use to print a Tap 10 report. Had to go to FedEx Kinko's to have scanned and put on a memory stick ($0.99). And sent to HP as an attachment. Two hours later, they responded stating that the cartridge was bad. Strange that took place with 2 cartridges Office Depot, but in any case I took the cartridge back to Office Depot and they exchangec (more than $8.00) for genuine HP. Plugged inside and problem solved. Congratulations to Office Depot and HP support.

  • Remove and check color on Officejet 7310 cartridge

    I need all possible solutions for a new error message - remove and check color cartridge.  I work on a Mac OS 10.6.8 and aired recently in a lot of printer problems.  My HP Officejet 7310 was low on black ink, so I replaced the cartridge and it aligned properly without any problem. Later, when I tried to print labels, it gave me an error message and flashing exclamation point "remove and check color cartridge.  The color cartridge is not new and has not been replaced recently. It is half full. I did remove the cartridge and saw nothing wrong, so I re-inserted it. Once again, the same message. Then I tried to clean the copper contacts, as I've done it before. Still no change. I did a search for solutions and tried the following supposedly a HP technical support:

    Solution 1:

    Follow the steps below to power cycle your all-in-one:

    1. check that the device is on. Unplug the all-in-one power
    and unplug the USB/Ethernet cable.
    2. wait 30 seconds.
    3. connect the power supply only.
    4. Repeat steps 1-3 two times more.
    5. on the third time after plugging the unit running, reconnect the cable to the
    All-in-one to your computer.
    6. check the feature;

    Solution 2:

    Remove the cartridges from the printer and follow the steps below:

    1. clean the copper contacts of the cartridge with a slightly moistened cloth or a cotton swab
    with water distilled, filtered, or bottled. The tap water may contain contaminants that can
    damage to the ink cartridges.
    2. clean the contacts in the print carriage, inside the printer. Transport print contacts are made of copper and are found in transport, so that they line up with the contacts of the cartridge when the cartridge is installed.

    Solution 3:

    Reset the all-in-one to the default settings by using these instructions:
    1. disconnect the power cable from printer when the printer is on.
    2 press and hold # and 6 while plugging in the power cord.

    Continue holding until it displays the message Reset full Semi the front panel of the all-in-one device.

    NONE of them worked.  I am connected by USB as ever, our WiFi seems to remain stable.  Can offer you solutions to the problem?

    Kudo!  Kudo!  of course, the voltage is too low or the amps available short-term (short-term reserve amps.)  with 2 good carbatteries, I could establish free error initialize, all in this one works very well. Make sure the power supply is adequate, thank you and congratulations to all of you!

    I finally removed the theoffendin cartridge and replaced by a new HP cartridge and, now, my printer works great - no error message and printing is perfect.  The 'bad' cartridge was a remanufactured, which has worked well up to this point, but I will in the future hold with HP.  Hope this will help you.

    I have a HP Photosmart C4150 all-in-one printer.  The ink cartridges are newish.  When I try to print a web page or a page in MS Word, the message remove and check print cartridges appears.  I removed both cartridges and re - install, but without success.  I have a MacBook Pro.

    How long were these cartridges in the printer? You can try to clean the contacts by following the steps below.

    The print cartridge cannot have a full electrical contact with the printer. Can help to remove, and then reinstall the cartridge. To remove and inspect the cartridge, follow these steps:

    NOTE: HP does not guarantee the quality of remanufactured or refilled cartridges.

    1. Make sure that the printer is turned on. If it is not lit, press the power button.

    2. Open the printer cover, and then wait the carriage is idle and silent.

    3. Press gently on top of the cartridge to release it.
