With HP printers, you need to use genuine HP cartridges. Is it an Hp or replacement cartridge?

Sometimes a film of ink on the electrical contacts on the ink cartridge or in the printer where they seat can give you that error. Use Q-tip with rubbing alcohol to carefully clean all contacts of ink residue and see if that helps (I had a reoccurring problem like that one with an older printer until I eventually replaced it).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
