My 7830 does not recognise my black ink cartridge as being inserted properly any more and I don't know why. I turned the printer on the other day and the message "Remove and reinstall the indicated (black) cartridge, making sure it is correctly installed." came up. I had not replaced the cartridge and had been happily printing from it the day before. Taking out and re-inserting the cartridge multiple times, along with restarting and resetting the printer all have not cured the fault. I do not have a spare black cartridge to try, and am reluctant to buy another one on the chance that it does not solve the problem. I have cleaned up the (still half full) cartridge and electrical connections on the printer, all to no avail.
Unfortunately, the printer is now out of warranty so a self-fix is neccessary, unless it is knackered and I need to buy a new printer. I'll be mightily annoyed if that is the case, as it is only a couple of years old and has been great up until this point.
Has anyone else had this problem and managed to cure it?
