HP Photosmart 7520 All in one Error report

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
After installing a brand new HP 564 black ink cartrigde, every attempt to print something since installing it, I keep getting a Printer failure report on the printer screen : There is a problem with the printer or ink system. Turn printer off, then on. If problem persist, contact HP. Then the report on my compuetr under HP Photosmart 7520  series (Network) reads: (next to red circle w/white x )   Missing or Failed Printhead
                                           Cyan/Magenta/Yellow/Black/PhotoBlack
                                   The printethead appears to be missing, not detected, incorrectly installed, or incompatible
I tried turning it off and on several times. Took cartridge out and put it back in. Searched cartridge well to see if there was anything blocking it. tried troubleshooting it through the Printer itself and from the HP help. tried contacting them but the number given is for a free Carribean cruise..So not very professional. Like I said , after installing a brand new HP 564 black ink cartridge, this started. i didn't get a chance to print anything.  Can I get help with this please?

Hello Dumbazz77,
Welcome to the HP Forums.
I see that you are having an issue with the printer giving the error " The print-head appears to be missing, not detected, incorrectly installed, or incompatible".
I do have a few suggestions that we can try in the attempt to troubleshoot this issue.
First off, please make sure that you have the printer power cable connected directly to a wall outlet and not a power bar/strip. Here is a document that uses a LaserJet printer as an example but it is meant for HP products in general. Please click on the following link that explains the Issues when Connected to an Uninterruptible Power Supply/Power Strip/Surge Protector.
I have also located a document that deals with 'Problem with Printhead,' 'Printer Failure,' 'Ink System Failure,' or a '0x...' or a 'C2...' Error M...".
If the troubleshooting does not help resolve your issue, I would then suggest calling HP's Technical Support to see about further options for you. If you are calling within North America, the number is 1-800-474-6836 and for all other regions, click here: click here.
Thanks for your time.
