I got used HP Deskjet Advantage 3525 printer. When I turned it on, it messaged ink error that cartridge appears to be missing. I bought new genuine HP cartridges - all 4 of them and replaced them.
The printer is still showing error of missing black cartridge (it shows symbol of black cartridge) and I cannot do anything. I tried to install printer driver on my notebook (Windows 10), but as I try to set up a new printer in HP smart app it tells me it couldn't find my printer.
I tried with HP support assistant and it suggested to update my printer firmware. I chose update via Web page (since the printer is not connected to internet and my computer doesn't even know I have printer). The HP printer update program shows my computer, but as I say to update it, there is some error in I get 'update failed'.
As I know printer is not under warranty any more and was not connected to computer for at least two years. That's why I got it - the owner didn't need it any more. 🙂
I feel totally hopeless, so I would appreciate any help. Thank you.
Since the device is out of warranty, and we've concluded that this is a hardware malfunction, I may have a few pointers/suggestions to help you out, however, since these suggestions are limited to you and your printer alone, I'd like to send out a private message with those details.
