Error "cartridge in slot on left is not intended for use in this printer"

HP Recommended
Photosmart C5580
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I received the error "cartridge in slot on left is not intended for use in this printer."  I have the original HP cartridge in, it was working one day, then stopped then next.  I followed all the instructions from other post such as power cycling and cleaning, it did not work.  Please advise how to fix?

@KMW56

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community.

 

If you insert any other ink instead, do you still get the error message?

 

Try a firmware update: https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/ish_1776648-1643972-16

 

Let me know if this helps.

Try inserting the previous ink again and check if the same error comes up.

 

Also, try connecting the Printer to a different wall outlet directly.
