I am setting up hp Photosmart 7510 and I put the print cartridges in  that came in the box with the printer,  and it says "Printhead Missing." What do I do to remedy the problem?

@ KHS34- I will need a little more information in order to help out. There are a few different printers mentioned in this thread. Could you please confirm the printer that you own so that I know which one is the correct one to assist on? How are the computer and the printer connected? Is the printer plugged directly into a wall outlet? Thanks.

Here is a link that addresses the error message that you are getting on the product. If this does not fix the issue. One is looking at product replacement as the printhead is not a replaceable part. If you are still in warranty, HP may replace the printer at no cost to you. I'll link the information to get in touch with them below. The link will take you to a form to fill out. Once you fill it out and it is processed, it will give you the printers warranty information, a case number, and the phone number to call.

I hope that this helps.

Have attempted the procedure many times, see nothing to reset. Printer is in warranty, will go to the send to HP option.

Re: my printer says 'printhead missing"

Finally had chance to complete the form and make the call.   After going thru all the information provided on the form, I was transferred to another, expert section - something like that.  Volume of call was very poor, brief exchange - than got disconnected.   I assumed he would run through the procedure, open latch, unplug, etc.

 

May not be worth the effort, if could find the recept I would return to Sams Club.

 

Thnaks for the help.
