Setup Cartridge Missing

Officejet 6600
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

A long time ago, my in-laws bought this printer and didn't actually use it. Now they want to use it. However, the problem is one of the setup cartridges has been nibbled on by a dog and isn't usable. I tried to just replace the cartridge with a new one, but the printer setup system is telling me I need to use the setup cartridge that came with the printer.

Can I override this message in any way and finish the setup process?

 

- The black, yellow, and cyan are still the setup cartridges.

Setup Cartridge Missing

Hi, 

My HP Photosmart B110a had setup issue when I changed one of the ink cartridge to a new one, it required reboot and when I turned it on it said missing print head. Tried refering to the online manual to clean and re-seat the print head. I have read on forums that the printhead was the problem. I bought a new one from third party but now it requires a setup cartridge. My original setup cartridge was used up and already missing.

 

Is there a way to manually bypass this setup step? I have few sets of new unused ink cartridge and just want to use this printer and scanner again as I feel comfortable using this model.

 

Thanks a lot.

Thank you for joining HP Forums. 

This is a great place to get support, find answers to your technical queries.

 

I understand that the printer has an error "Setup Cartridge Missing", need not worry I'll be glad to assist you with this.

 

Using third-party ink cartridges might damage the printhead or may reduce the lifespan of the printer.

 

However, I have sent you a private message, for more details that cannot be shared in a public post.

Can you please check your inbox on the forums page for the private message for the steps that could fix the issue..

 

Eagerly waiting for your reply!

Cheers!

Setup Cartridge Missing

I have this issue too with my Envy 5030 - it is on its 2nd set of cartridges and is asking for a setup cartridge for the first time ever. Have upgraded the firmware.

 

I see that the resolution to this seems to be in private messages only, if you are not willing to share the resolution publicly, can I please have the resolution sent privately also?

Thanks
