Printhead

HP Recommended
Officejet Pro 8610

I tried the steps and it’s saying my printhead is still missing, not detected, or incorrectly installed. Do I need to buy a new printhead?

I have done this multiple times even fully removing the printhead and I still receive the error message.  checked on line the price of a new printhead and for that amount of money, it is better to buy a new printer with a warranty.
