I have had this printer (HP Photosmart C4380) for 2 and a half years now and the current cartridges in the printer have been there for around 2 months and been printing fine; in fact I printed yesterday with no problem at all!!!!
I have the correct HP recommended cartridges installed in the printer - 350 & 351.
However, today I switched on the printer and the following message is displayed on the printer screen "Incompatible print cartridge(s)"
I have removed the cartridges and then put them back in, but the same error keeps coming up. I have turned it on and off but the error still appears.
Any suggestions on why this error has suddenly appeared and how I can fix it?!
Thanks ever so much!
