Cannot find the steps to resolve this problem. I know the cartridge is not damaged because it works in my HP 8600 printer. Can someone point me to the progressive steps to get this printer working again? Message: "One or more cartridges appears to be damaged - Remove and replace with new cartridge (which I did but still get the same message - plus existing cartridge works in my 8600 printer).
Thank you - Michael

I have gone through your Post and would like to help
I suggest you perform a printer reset and also ensure the printer firmware is up to date
- Turn on the printer.
- Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you continue.
- Disconnect the USB cable from the rear of the printer. If your printer has a network or wireless connection, leave it connected.
- Remove the ink cartridges from the printer.
- With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer and from the wall outlet or power strip.
- Wait at least 60 seconds.
- Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
NOTE: HP recommends connecting the printer power cord directly to a wall outlet.
- Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
- Turn on the printer, if it does not automatically turn on.
- The printer might go through a warm-up period. The printer lights might flash, and the carriage might move.
- Wait until the warm-up period finishes and your printer is idle and silent before you proceed.
- Reinsert the ink cartridges, and then close the ink cartridge access door.
- If you receive a prompt to print a calibration page, do so.

Sir - I followed the steps closely but still received the same message again. However during the process I noticed something that may be important. The message is always about the yellow cartridge. So I notice that when I take the yellow cartridge in and out that it does not click in the same way as the others and I have to pull it out - it does not spring out. I have looked to see if I can clear the clicking (locking) mechanism but so far can't see how to do that. Using a flashlight, the slot for the yellow cartridge looks the same as the other slots. Although I can't see why, it seems that the lock-in mechanism is not working properly. I am pretty handy at fixing mechanical things so if you think I should take the printing elements out - I am game. It this point I don't think I have anything to lose. Thank you again for your help I appreciate it very much.

Yes, I had done this multiple times in the beginning, rotating from my 8600 to try to isolate the problem. And I tried again without success. All yellow cartridges have the same problem. I just don't think they lock into to the socket. I suspect something is wrong with the socket. Hopefully I can repair this if I can figure out what to look for. Regards, Michaeltbf

Since all the cartridges are having the same issue, then its a problem with the socket on the printer. Unfortunately those parts are not customer replaceable parts

Thank you Mr. Toad I sincerely appreciate your help. But, with all due respect, I think this is incorrect. Here is why:
When the 8600 series came out I decided to standardize on it, buying two 8600s (one a premium) and one 8610. Now I am afraid I made a mistake by doing this. At the same time, I also purchased a NEW replacement Print Head and ink cartridge replacement kit ( - Box labeled CR322A) for the future.
The problem we have been discussing has been on my 8610. I have just installed the new Print Head in that machine and now get the message that M,C and K "One or more cartridges appear to be damaged (interesting all but the Y I got on the previous Print Head). Remove them and replace them with new cartridges." All cartridges in this new Print Head assembly work fine in my two other 8600s.
I have run though the start up steps you shared with me earlier in this thread - but still get the same message.
It seems to me that the problem is not with the socket on the old Print Head - this would be just too coincidental that I get the same indication about the new Print Head (except for all of the other colors except yellow).
I am eager to fix this problem and since I showed my confidence in HP and standardized on these printers I am also eager to show that my decision was a good one.
