I have purchased original Color cartridge for this printer, it worked for a while, but recently has been giving me the error and asking to reinstall the cartridge. 

 

Tried everything mentioned in the forum, but not able to get this resolved.

 

Please help.

Welcome to HP support community.

 

Did you try cleaning the electrical contacts, if not follow the below steps:

  1. Turn the printer on.

  2. Open the door to access the ink cartridges.

  3. Wait until the carriage stops moving before you continue.

  4. Remove the ink cartridge indicated in the error message from its slot, holding it by its side.

       CAUTION: 

    Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or the ink nozzles. Touching these parts can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections.

  5. Remove any protective tape that still might be on the contacts.

       CAUTION: 

    Do not touch or try to remove the copper electrical strip.

    Remove the plastic tape and do not touch the contacts or ink nozzles

  6. Lightly dampen a lint-free cloth with distilled water, and then clean only the copper-colored contacts on the ink cartridge.

  8. Wait 10 minutes for the contacts to dry.

  9. Reinsert the ink cartridge.

    • Insert the black ink cartridge into the right slot.

    • Insert the tri-color ink cartridge into the left slot.

  10. Repeat these steps for the other ink cartridge, if necessary.

  11. Close the ink cartridge access door.

  12. If the error persists, repeat the previous steps to clean the ink cartridge and carriage contacts a second time.

  13. Check for the error message.
