Re: how do you reset printer c410

I also have a C410 and I have tried the plugging in and out to no avail. My printer seems to be in stuck mode. All I get is "Ink Cartridge Problem. the following Ink Cartridges appear to be missing or damaged. They are ALL brand new. I just purchased them at Target. Any ideas that you might have, I'd certainly appreciate.

Hi Randyyoungsr,


I understand that your printer is getting an error message.  I would take a look at the document below.

Let me know how it goes.

Ink Cartridge Error Message

[ Edited ]

I have a Photosmart C410 All in One.  I just installed brand new HP ink cartridges.  The printer continually displays the message that all of the cartridges are missing or damaged.  I have tried all of the procedures outlined here with no success.  I have also power cycled the printer to reset it.


Can someone help me with this?

Re: Ink Cartridge Error Message

Hey Juraf50,


If you have performed all the steps in the document, cleaned contacts of the cartridges and matching contacts in the printhead of the printer, replaced the cartridges, replaced the printhead of the C410a, and the problem is still continuing then it is an issue with the electronics of the ink system in the printer itself.


The next step will be product replacement.  Do you know if this printer is in warranty?
