Color cartridge doesn't work on HP Envy Photo 6220

HP Recommended
Envy photo 6220
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi.

I post my request here as I haven't find the forum comunity for my country (France).

I received yesterday my brand new printer, but I have a few problems with it...

 

First, when I'm in HP Smart it says that the paper level is low but in reality it's half full.

 

Second, after I inserted the both cartridges, I have an error message: "Remove and reinstall the indicate cartridge, making sure it's correctly installed"

The black cartridge is working but everytime I try to re-insert the color one it says the above message.

I've updated the printer  thru " Advanced settings" but nothing seems to be working.

 

Would-it work buying a new cartridge? Unless if it's a hardware problem and the sensor is not working...

 

If you have any tips or help that will be much appreciated.

 

Have a good day

Hi @mundee23,

 

I'd like to help!

 

Try the below suggestion for out of paper error-

 

Check the paper, and then reload it

Check the paper stack for defects such as wrinkled, torn, or bent pieces that might cause a pick-up issue.

  1. Remove any paper from the paper tray.

  2. Remove any severely bent, wrinkled, or torn paper found in the stack.

  3. Check for obstructions inside the paper tray. Make sure nothing blocks the paper from engaging with the rollers.

  4. Make sure the paper stack is even on all sides.

  5. Load the stack of paper into the paper tray.

    Examples of loading paper
  6. Close or push in the paper tray.

  7. Select the correct paper size on the printer control panel or in the printer software.
