I just bought an HP Envy 6230 and tried to set it up. It seems to recognise the black setup cartridge, but whenever the colour setup cartridge is present, it says "remove and re-insert the indicated cartridge, making sure it is correctly installed". I have tried fiddling with having one in and one out, once it actually printed a test page when only the colour setup cartridge was present, but I can't get it to setup following the suggested steps and I am now really infuriated - the printer wasn't particularly cheap, the cartridges really aren't, and I would just like the thing I spent money on to actually work.
Wait until the carriage stops moving before you continue.
Remove the cartridge indicated in the error message from its slot, holding it by its side.
Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or the ink nozzles. Touching these parts can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections.
Remove any protective tape that still might be on the contacts.
Do not touch or try to remove the copper electrical strip.
Lightly dampen a lint-free cloth with distilled water, and then clean only the copper-colored contacts on the cartridge.
Lightly dampen a lint-free cloth with distilled water, and then clean the electrical contacts in the carriage, located inside the printer.
Wait 10 minutes for the contacts to dry.
Reinsert the cartridge.
Insert the black cartridge into the right slot.
Insert the tri-color cartridge into the left slot.
Repeat these steps for the other cartridge, if necessary.
Close the cartridge access door.
If the error persists, repeat the previous steps to clean the cartridge and carriage contacts a second time.
Check for the error message.
