Setup Envy Photo 7855 Without Setup Cartridges

@ALRASH,

 

Allow me to welcome to HP Support Forums! It is a great platform to get help from the community, get suggestions and find what has worked for others!


Going through your post, I understand that you are having issues with your Office jet 8620 printer. Do not worry, I’m here to help 


First off, the SETUP ink cartridges are used only to set up a new HP printer for the first series of your print jobs. They are specially designed to initialize a printer and calibrate ink levels.


Installing normal ink cartridges during the initial printer setup causes a printer error prompting you to install SETUP ink cartridges. The printer cannot be set up without associated SETUP ink cartridges installed.

 

Hence, if this is a first-time printer setup and if you have received the setup cartridges with the printer, please use them to setup the printer.


You can keep the regular cartridges in an air-tight container and can use once the printer is setup using the setup cartridges.

 

For more assistance, please follow the steps suggested in the support document for - HP Ink Cartridges - 'Use SETUP Cartridges' Error

 

just in case, if you want to bypass the setup cartridges and want to use the regular ink cartridges, I believe we can bypass the setup by performing a reset.

 

I am sending you a private message with the steps to reset the printer. Please check the mailbox icon at the top-right corner of this screen.

 

Please check your Private message icon on the upper right corner of your HP Forums profile,

Next, to your profile Name, you should see a little blue envelope, please click on it.

 

Please reply back on the public post as this Private message box is not monitored.

I hope this helps resolve this issue completely,

@ALRASH

I'm the Riddle_Decipher & I'm writing on behalf of my colleague @Jeet_singh, as the tech is out for the day, that said, I have reviewed your concern and the entire conversation, did some research and here's what I recommend:

 

I see that we've reached the end of the line, as you've already performed the reset and you've been referred to contact HP on the private message sent by the last tech,

And I recommend you do just that to resolve this issue, as it seems to be a hardware malfunction.

 

If you are unable to contact us using the instructions provided, please let us know so that we can work on the same.

 

Let me know how that pans out,

have a great day Ahead!

@Priya9427581,

 

Thank you for posting your query on HP Support Community,

 

In order to bypass the setup cartridges and want to use the regular ink cartridges, I believe we can bypass the setup by performing a reset.

 

I am going to send you a private message with the instructions on how to perform an advanced reset. Now these steps are specific to your printer only. 

 

Please check the mailbox icon at the top-right corner of this screen.

There is a way to bypass this warning, but it did not work for me. I ended up returning the printer because it was defective. There are various troubleshooting protocols, but you really need to work with HP Support directly. They ask that users not share the specific sequence of buttons to push to get the printer to ignore this error. I spent about 90 minutes on the phone with HP trying to get the bypass to work, but no luck. Sorry.

I am having this same issue with 7855.  Can you please send override instructions?  I have seen the hidden support menu option to override on other models. However, the 7855 does not have this option to bypass the setup cartridge situation using Trade OBEE in the systems config menu. 

Thanks!
