Deskject 3070a; Cartridge error



I recently replaced the cartridges on my Deskjet 3070A, and have since been experiencing the following:

device status: ink supply failure; supplies: cartridge is incompatible. 

I noticed that the printer recognises the magenta, cyan and black cartridges, until I install the yellow one. Then all four become incompatible! I am using genuine cartridges. 


I have tried the hard reset and uninstalling and reinstalling the cartridges. 


Any other suggestions would be much appreciated!


Thank you.

Welcome to the forums mnciamSmiley Happy


I saw your post about the incompatible cartridge error you are seeing after you had installed new cartridges. I would like to suggest the guide below for your troubleshooting to start with!


'Incompatible Ink Cartridge' or 'Indicated Ink Cartridge Must Be Replaced' Message Displays on the C...



If the troubleshooting does not help resolve your issue, I would then suggest calling HP's Technical Support to see about further options for you. If you are calling within North America, the number is 1-800-474-6836 and for all other regions: click here.
