8610 Printerhead error

HP 8610 all in one

I replaced the ink cartridges in y 8610, using the cartridges supplied by HP Instant Ink, and now I'm persistently received the error message:

"The printhead appears to be missing, not detected, or incorrectly installed."


I continue to receive this error even after going thru the various troubleshooting approaches outlined on the HP Support page: reinstalling the cartridges, resetting the printhead, etc.


The printer was working fine up until this, although it was very low on ink.


Now what?

8610 Printerhead error

Hi @Charles_Purvis


Welcome to the HP Support Community. 


Let's try these steps - HP Printers - Printhead Errors

If the issue still persists, I'd suggest you Contact HP in your region regarding the service options for your printer.


Have a great day!
