The printer was working perfectly until I replaced the MCY cartridges (Genuine HP) Black was not replaced (Genuine HP). Upon closing the lid I mmediately got a "Problem with printhead" message. Error code OxC19a002. Scanning is normal.
I have tried removing the cartridges and cleaning the contacts in the printhead but no improvement.

Did you connect the computer directly to the wall outlet and bypass power strips, besides doing a hard reset on the printer?
Did you try making copies directly from the printer without any intervention from the computer?
For a start please perform these steps. Before that let me keep you posted that the printer may have a faulty printhead or the printer hardware could be faulty.
