Solved!

"Remove and reinstall the indicated ink cartridge... [colour]"

HP ENVY 4524

For the last week I have been unable to print anything with my HP ENVY 4524 displaying the error "Remove and reinstall the indicated ink cartridge, making sure it is correctly installed".

 

I've read through the very long HP support page on the issue and tried everything it has said, but I am still getting the error.

 

I am subscribed to HP Instant Ink, so I only ever use genuine HP ink cartridges in the printer.

 

I cannot find a way of directly contacting someone at HP, so I would be very grateful if an HP representative could reply to this thread so that I can get a replacement colour cartridge for the printer.

 

Many thanks,

 

Chris Thorn

@christhorn


Welcome to HP Forums. This is a great place to get support, find answers and tips.

 

I understand that you are unable to print with your Instant Ink Cartridges and the printer is prompting you to reinstall the cartridges.

 

I appreciate all your efforts and expertise in troubleshooting this issue.

 

I will send you a Private Message, please reply back with your Instant Ink Account Number or Email Address and I'll look into it.

 

Please check your private message icon in 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

 

Meantime, please remove the cartridges, clean the electrical contacts with a Lint-Free cloth and reinstall the Firmly.

 

Then perform a Printer Reset

 

(1) Turn the printer on, if it is not already on.
(2) Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you continue.
(3) With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
(4) Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
(5) Wait at least 60 seconds.
(6) Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
 NOTE: HP recommends connecting the printer power cord directly to the wall outlet.
(7) Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
(8) 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

 

Also update the Firmware from this Link: https://hp.care/2uTqjLN

 

Keep me posted.

 

Thank you 🙂

Hello,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

I've sent you a PM with the requested details.

 

I tried the "Printer Reset" steps you outlined, but it made no difference.

 

I've checked, and the printer firmware is up to date.

 

Many thanks,

 

Chris

@Bigjack100

Welcome to the HP Forums,

We'll be with you until it's all sorted & beyond!

 

I'm glad the steps suggested by the other tech worked for you,

Although I'm afraid the original poster is the only one who can mark the post as the solution,

You, however, can give him a kudos (Thumbs up), to let him know it worked for you.

 

I hope that answers your query,

If it doesn't or you need further support, simply write back to us anytime and we'll be glad to help.

Have a great day ahead.
