HP Photosmart C4480: INCOMPATIBLE PHOHOTOSMART C4480 HP Print CARTRIDGE

My printer takes 350 and 351 ink cartridges I buy from Tesco.  Suddenly, I get the message "Incompatible print cartridge".  A week ago, I changed the cartridges, and they have been printing fine but now this message. No idea what to do next as he completely stopped him.  Any ideas?

  • Message or incompatible cartridges on HP Photosmart C4480 all-in-One Printer

    I changed my color ink cartridge (a 75XL) on Monday, 16/04/12, and everything printed fine Monday.  I turned off my HP Pavilion laptop and printer on Monday night.  Tuesday, 04/17/12, I started working on my laptop and when I tried to print the small printer screen says "not compatible ink cartridges and my laptop screen said" the next cartridge has a problem: black ink cartridge '.»  I had kept the black in (a 74XL) cartridge because he still has a lot of black ink in it.  I removed the color and black cartridges, made sure that the point of contact with the printer is clean, so that both cartridges have ink in them and they are placed in the correct locations (black on the right) and the cartridge color left.  I don't know why I get these messages and why the printer does not print when he did print Monday after changing the color cartridge.  The two ink cartridges are XL, but they are not identical. The black ink cartridge is more horizontally (fate of the stick to the door of printer cartridge) further than the color ink cartridge.  The two are the same vertically / height.  Both cartridges are the type "XL".  I tried to download and use the diagnostic tool and it has led to tell on the screen of my laptop there is no problem with the printer.  Can an HP agent contact me and help solve this mystery.  It's very frustrating because I only use HP products (including two ink cartridges); and if I had to buy new cartridges, how do I know that this problem is happening?  Help please!  My email is [removed personal information] Thank you.

  • Not compatible HP Photosmart C4480 printer ink cartridge

    HI - first time here - I have a HP Photosmart C4480 printer and have recently installed a new black ink cartridge - genuine HP 350XL - bought in Tesco and already used a few times.  I printed a page today, and when I went to another printing, the printer says that the cartridge was incompatible.  I had not touched the printer between the prints. I tried out both cartridges and resettlement but still get the same message.  Also tried to turn again printer.

    I could understand if there was a problem with the cartridge and it was rejected as soon as I installed, but does not understand why this happens between the printing of pages.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thank you

  • Incompatible cartridge (HP Photosmart C4480)

    I don't have the luxury of wasting my time here, I'm supposed to write an article for an academic journal, but let's do it anyway. because I'm pretty annoyed for this give actually the few minutes that I let myself before another staff meeting.

    A week ago, my printer (HP Photosmart C4480, almost a year now) began to give me the message that my cartridge is incompatible. The cartridge has been about a month or two old that I think, and I printed with her until he was about ¾ of his initial resistance. I followed all the steps troubleshooting gave me; reset, cleaning, I even had my old cartridge rest to see if this one has worked and that he could solve the problem (it worked, one that came with the printer, but it does not solve the problem). Apart from the replacement of the cartridge or get a new printer, it is not a way to solve this problem.

    But get a new cartridge doesn't just prolong the problem without actually solving. Now, it has become more obvious to me that there is a general problem of HP printer with error message "incompatible cartridge". This forum alone shows many examples unresolved for anyone who cares to look for them for a few seconds. The result is that people simply buy or request for new cartridges, and then, either immediately or after a certain while, the error recurs.

    It was an a little more vital product, like say a car, it must be recalled. If you take a look at the Amazon comments, they have been regularly in downhill, becoming more and more negative, the way a few months ago. I don't know if it's a software thing you guys has changed, or if your hardware or cartridges are doomed to failure. Maybe you send a bad batch of cartridges, but that would not explain why recurring popular printers fail with the same message.

    I am currently waiting for a response to a request for assistance. As I shine since other posts about this problem, you can not give a) an explanation of this debacle, b) a solution that does not involve the purchase of new cartridges to replace a cartridge that was perfectly fine before mounting them in your cartridge deathtraps. If there is anything that can be done does not mean to ignore the problem, spending more money on more product failure, but actually goes one way to solve the problem, I have he would hear gladly.

    OK laddie and gentlemen listen hear is how to fix this error message "incompatible cartridge" boring.
    Step 1: turn off your printer
    Step2:turn on your printer

  • Can not re - install Photosmart C4480 and get the error "printer is offline and error 41"

    Hello. I had some corrupted files Windows and don't update. As I put everything I like, I think I can't reinstall my HP Photosmart C4480 printer.

    My system:

    Sony Vaio, 64-bit

    Windows 8

    What I see:

    When I physically connect the printer via USB, the computer does not recognize that something has been connected. A flash drive inserted into the same port is recognized, so I don't think it's a problem of port.

    I tried a different printer cable with the same results, so don't think it's the cable

    Tried to install via the Setup program, but it does not recognize the printer.

    Tried to install manually several times. It usually looks like it installs, but impossible to print the test at the end of the installation page

    I got several error messages include:

    That not being able to communicate in both directions. I checked this setting and it is turned on

    Error 41

    Printer is offline (the printer is connected and turned on)

    After manual installation, the printer will appear in devices and printers and the print dialog box (after it hit Ctrl-P). In the dialog box, Photosmart is selected, but when I hit nothing print response happens - no printer and no printer icon appears in the taskbar

    I would greatly appreciate the help and advice to solve this. Thank you!

    Hi Renee,.

    This question might be incorrect or incompatible printer drivers installed on the computer. The State of a printer offline may be due not to the power of the printer. You must also ensure that network share can be disabled.

    For more information, see the link:

  • HP photosmart C4480: HP photosmart C4480 does not print colors

    I had other questions on this matter. Changed to the new color cartridge. The printer will print a new alignment page that has the color on it, but all the images or type I try to print in color out just black and white. I don't have an option of black and white levels in my print window. Also do not have a function of options as someone did in a similar question. Impossible to find anywhere in the preferences system, in the window print function buttons printer to specify the color and black and white.

    Never had this problem before using Windows or Mac computers. Printed of this same laptop several times over the years, no problem. This just started happening out of nowhere starts at the beginning of this summer. Same notebook printed in color in the office. No indication I need new drivers, tried to reinstall the printer just to be safe.

    Any ideas? !!

  • HP Photosmart C4480 - blurry text when printing *.pdf

    Hi,

    I seem to be a common problem but can't seem to find a common solution. I have a printer [HP Photosmart C4480] who works well for ages. Now, however, seems to have problems printing pdf. As I said (or rather typed), This seems to be a common problem. In other sources on the internet, it is described as dark printed text or text that looks blurry (for example, here). It seems also the text is printed in a shade bluish the color of the font of the text itself is black. Just for the record:

    -J' restarted my computer. 3 times;

    -J' have 2 new hp original cartridge in the printer. The printer is aligned cleaned and everything;

    -L' printer is OK with other files (meaning not being not not *.pdf);

    -This isn't the files. They are ok. It's several files from several reliable sources (for example, my University) that all print sharp printers not HP. I would include a sample attachment, but I can't... O well. I'll add a link. You are here. (* Edit: link has been removed after the problem has been resolved).

    -The problem with the same printer on 5 consecutive laptops running Windows XP upwards and up to what Windows 8. All have the latest version of Adobe.

    -Adjustment of the color to print in black and white (only black and white) does not deny the problem.

    * Edit:-connected via USB.

    * Edit:-portable Test computer running Microsoft Windows 7 x 64 Home Premium (Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium
    Version 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601).

    * Edit 2:-tried another cable USB (thanks for the suggestion Rich1!). Unfortunately, no results .

    * Edit 3:-problem solved partially. Software incompatibility between HP and Adobe. See the workaround. Only works for gray-scale printing.

    * Edit 4: Rich1 helped me to identify the problem. Seems that when printing the PDF files, the printer does not seem to use black ink and in turn simulates black by combining the primary colors (which gives all the quality of the results, where the blur). This problem also exists in Acrobat with Foxit substitution (for example).

    With sincere friendships.

    I think I've solved the problem, even though it may persist in color prints.

    HP, this seems to be a widespread between the printing software and Acrobat Reader problem. I suggest that you find a more permanent solution. First mention of the problem lies in 2008 and it is widespread, but you seem to be ignorant.

    As to the question.

    This question seems to raise its ugly head after an update to Acrobat Reader. Several sources confirm this. As is the case, software HP seems to be an incompatibility with Acrobat Reader. It sucks because it is the most popular format for sharing on the internet of documents.

    As for the solution.

    1. do not use any web application to print. Save the file. Open it in Adobe Acrobat Reader;

    2. open the print menu [file > print];

    3. click [Advanced] at the top right of the screen.

    4. under color management, check that box to the left of something to the effect of "let the printer choose colors". (I have an English version of the software Acrobat Reader installed, bear with me. Press [OK];

    5. to return to the main print window, go to the menu of [Properties] in the top right of the screen. It should be next to the menu advanced;

    6. in the Properties menu, select the [color] tab. Once there, select an item to the effect of "print in grayscale". Directly under this option must be a menu drop-down. In this menu, select "use only black ink. Press [OK];

    7 print the file. As long as you print in black and white, the focus should be good.

    Hope this helps someone else! If you like my solution, give this guy there Rich1 some kudo is such that at least he had the kindness to answer and help me solve this problem.

    Thank you!
