Photosmart HP 5510 - ink cartridge error message

I replaced all four cartridges (used HP replacements) but for some reason any Cyan shows a problem.  I contacted the seller of the ink and returned the cartridge for a new thought, I had a faulty cartridge, today a new arrival and on install the same message appears.  I tried everything I can think of this problem. The really weird thing is that if you replace the complete new cartridge with the old, virtually empty, the message disappears, where the reason why I thought that the problem was a faulty cartridge.  I can't have two defective cartridges so what to do now?

Help, please


HP support were baffled, they sent me a new cartridge, but still no joy so that we had to buy a new printer.
Thanks anyway

  • PhotoSmart C4385 says color cartridge error message is not compatible, but it worked before

    My PhotoSmart C4385 gives me incorrect error messages.  The most recent one is the "color cartridge is incompatible", but it worked before.

    Hello NancyofMarylandand welcome to the Forums of HP, I hope you enjoy your experience!

    I see that you have problems with ink.  I would like to help.

    I suggest to remove the cartridges and perform a power reset.  Unplug the power cord from the printer and the power outlet, then wait 60 seconds. After 60 seconds, plug back in the printer. Make sure that you connect the printer directly to a wall outlet. Make sure to bypass any surge protector or power bar.

    "I also recommend the continuation of the procedure described in this paper on a ' cartridge Incompatible ' or 'print cartridge is missing, improperly installed, or not intended for your device' Message appears on the computer.

    Good luck and please let me know the results of your troubleshooting operations. Thanks for posting on the HP Forums!

  • Align the PSC 750 printer ink cartridge error message.

    I just replaced only the black cartridge in my printer PSC 750.  (Will replace the color cartridge later as my money allows.) The printer is connected to my laptop, MacBookPro, under OS X, version 10.6 operating system.  After replacing the cartridge, I ran a self-evaluation report.  It seemed to run correctly.  No color cartridge only test model because there is no ink in the cartridge.  Then I ran the process to align the print cartridge which gives an error on the printer.  It displays "error: Align page not detected" when I clearly placed the page alignment on the scanner glass.  Tried this process several times and each time I get this error message.

    Could it happen because I have not yet replaced the color cartridge?  If not, then what?

    Alignment requires the black and cyan (or was it yellow on this model?) part of the color cartridge to print for correct alignment.  If you have an old copy of the alignment page you can use it, although the alignment would be suboptimal.

    Soak the printhead of the cartridge 78 in 1 "hot water for ten minutes and then gently the printhead from drying and put it back in the printer may allow enough ink complete the alignment page.

    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.

  • without the Photosmart 5510 ink cartridges Control Panel cannot be accessed

    I have a Photosmart 5510 which has no ink cartridge. My intention is to use it to scan only, and I would like to be able to set up wireless. When I turn on the printer, the control panel displays this: "problem of ink cartridges.  One or more cartridges appear to be missing or damaged. Install or replace the affected cartridges. »

    The wireless button or the ePrint button cause anything to appear on the control panel and there is no other options, such as cancel or continue.

    Is there a way to go beyond this message of ink cartridges without installing cartridges?


    In general, I'm afraid the answer is no, as a multifunction device, it requires the ink required to operate the device but there are of the workarounds you can try.

    That there is a problem with one or more of the ink cartridges should be sorted first, the control panel will not answer while the device is in an error state.

    You try to use the computer temporarily plugging in a USB port on the printer.

    If the printer is recognized by the PC in such a State, let it finish its configuration and open the software HP Photosmart 5510.

    Open the utilities tab and click on Setup & software printer, then click on convert USB to wireless and follow the steps on your PC.

    If this success then run a scan of your PC use.

    If it is not detected, which is likely to be affected by the error status of the device, such you will solve the problem first.

    You can follow these steps to solve a problem of cartridge if necessary:
