Officejet Not Reading Cartridge

Officejet 5740
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I just changed my black ink cartridge when the warning came on, but since I installed the new cartridge (HP black XL), I keep getting a notification popping up saying that there's a problem with the cartridge and to reinstall it. I've tried doing that several times, cleaning the head, turning the machine off and on, unplugging it and restarting it, and it still says that. I've tried reinserting the old cartridge and it works fine except for being out of ink. Is there a problem with the cartridge itself, and if so, what do I do? Do I take it back to the store, or return it to HP?

Welcome to the HP Forums 🙂 I would like to take a moment and thank you for using this forum, it is a great place to find answers. 

 

If all the steps have been performed from this document: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-officejet-5740-e-all-in-one-printer-series/6617253/model/661..., it would definitely be a cartridge issue.

 

For the next course of action, I have sent you a private message, for more details that cannot be shared in a public post.

Returned the cartridge and exchanged it for a new one at the store and the new one is working fine. Thanks!

I’m having the same issue listed above. It must be a cartridge issue but I bought the normal HP version. I need to know where to return or how to get a refund because I have important work to complete that needs printed ASAP.

Kj1993,

 I returned mine to Walmart with the receipt and just exchanged it.
