Welcome to the HP support community.

 

Clean the ink cartridge and printhead electrical contacts

Remove any debris or buildup from the contacts on the cartridges and in the carriage.

  1. Open the door or lid to the cartridge access area. Wait until the carriage stops moving before continuing.

  2. Remove the cartridge indicated in the error message from the carriage.

  3. Wipe the copper-colored contact on the cartridge with a lint-free cloth.

  4. Place the cartridge to the side with the contact facing upwards.

  5. Wipe the contact inside the printhead with a lint-free cloth.

  6. Reinsert the cartridge into its color-coded slot, and then press down on it until it snaps into place.

  7. Repeat these steps for any other cartridges indicated in the error message.

  8. Close the door or lid to the cartridge access area.
