Ink cartridge empty but it's not

I have just replaced my HP Photosmart D7360 with new cartridges and the printer says the yellow one is empty but it's brand new. I bought a new one and replaced it just in case and keeps on saying is empty!!! All of them are Vivera HP originals

Re: Ink cartridge empty but it's not

Ugh...same problem here, but with the Magenta cartridge.  Using Genuine HP cartridges and replaced it once already thinking it was a defective cartridge, but that did not help.  I've attempted to clean the contacts as instructed by HP and still have the problem

Re: Ink cartridge empty but it's not

I also have the very same issue with a D7360 and the yellow ink. It was printing normal when it ran out of yellow.  Two new HP replacements both say they are empty. Cannot print in color now. Printer is 13 months old. Any advise?

Re: Ink cartridge empty but it's not

I have a Photosmart C5280 just installed & it too shows both my colour & black cartridges as empty. Any ideas why?

Re: Ink cartridge empty but it's not

I have the same problem but it happened when I put a 02XL cartridge in. HP email support suggested that the 02XL wasn't compatible with my Photosmart D7360. Obviously, it is because when I put the 02XL pink cartridge in it worked fine.

 

Now they say I need to send it in for repair. I can probably replace it with a Lexmark for less than the cost of the repairs. Good job, HP.

Re: Ink cartridge empty but it's not

I still don't have an answer for this issue. I attempted to call HP support but they won't talk without a fee (5 weeks out of warranty). I also tried a couple of "Chat" sessions but waited over an hour each time with the message "a technician will be with you shortly". A local Office Supply store had the D7260 clearance priced about $80. This was my answer to all the unused ink I had in stock. I guess HP got my money anyway.

 

Do HP Tech's monitor this site?

Re: Ink cartridge empty but it's not

Same here-  I'm running into this problem for the second time in less than 3 weeks on my HP C5150. . Brand new cartridge installed, and it is fine for a day - then 2 days later, after NO color printing - it suddenly shows as completely empty.

 

Last month when I had the same problem, customer support suggested the following, which seemed to work.

(typos were theirs - I just copied and pasted):


Please try the following step's
Power your C5150 on and remove all 6 cartridges and close the cartridge access door
With your C5150 powered on unplug the power cord directly from the back
Press and hold the OK button and the HELP button down together while you plug the power cord back in
Keep the button's held down until the display screen goes blank then release the button's and power your C5150 back on
When you are prompted on the display screen to install the cartridges install all 6 cartridges and close the cartridge access door
Are you still getting the same message ?


This should resolve the issue. If you need further assistance, please reply to this message and we will be happy to assist you further.

Re: Ink cartridge empty but it's not

I have the same or similar problem with my C5180. It's worked more or less fine since I purchased it last year (except for it's frustrating inability to open the software using a wireless connection but that's another story!) In the last two weeks I have replaced the black cartridge and gotten error messages on the computer screen (not the printer itself) saying that the black cartridge was empty and needed to be replaced. After talking extensively with support they finally told me that I needed to uninstall and reinstall my printer software & drivers. I did this and problem fixed. However, since then I had to replace my magenta cartridge... went to print a photo tonight and guess what... same error message only now it wants me to replace the magenta cartridge or print in black only. I will try the steps below... tomorrow when I have a little more patience... but I've about had it with this printer and it's not quite a year old. My next printer will not be an HP.

Re: Ink cartridge empty but it's not

I have the same problem with yellow cartridges on my 5180. I tried the reset procedure suggested. It gave me a message about not powering down correctly, and now it tells me all 6 cartridges are empty, so now I can't even print in black and white!
