Cartridge error on Photosmart C4385

My printer keeps saying "Print cartridge missing or not detected. " Cartridges are there, fairly new and I was printing with this printer a week ago.  What can I do?

Hi - Try following the steps in this document - for solution 3, though I would also add that you'll want to clean not only the cartridge contacts, but also the contacts in the printer carriage.


Hope that helps.
