We recently purchased the HP Photosmart 7520 printer. We had a printer that stopped working however had unused nearly fully printer cartridges. When we purchased the HP Photosmart 7520 printer from HP we were told by the representative that we would be able to use those cartridges in our new printer, however now we are trying to use those and we are getting the error message "HP Protected Cartridge Installed". We are sitting here with over $100.00 in ink cartridges that we aren't able to use. What do we do now?

Sounds like the cartridges were locked to the first printer. Try calling HP Support to see what they can suggest....
- Printer Prints a Blank Page or Does Not Print Black or Color Ink for the HP Officejet 6500 All-in-One Printer Series
- What Is HP Instant Ink?
- HP Printers - Which Cartridges Work with My HP Printer?
- Replacing the Printhead for HP Officejet 6500 and 6500A All-in-One Printer Series
- Limited Warranty for HP Ink Cartridges and Customer-Replaceable Printheads for HP Inkjet Supplies
