The message is "Ink cartridge(s) missing or damaged," not "printhead,"
but "cartridge."  It's a bogus message.  The ink cartridge is neither
missing nor damaged.  This message simply indicates that the cartridge
has reached its expiration date.

It's got nothing to do with a missing or damaged cartridge.  HP was
too lazy to put an error message saying "Time's up!  Replace your
cartridge!" into the AIO's firmware, and they were too stupid to make
it a warning message rather than a hard error that locks up the entire

This is not something new.  HP and other printer mfrs. have been doing
it in their printers for several years.  The Internet is full of
stories of outrage and suggested workarounds, and even news of a
lawsuit against HP for the practice.

HP's web page http://www.hp.com/pageyield/articles/us/en/InkExpiration.html
gives the official explanation for this behavior, and says that the
error message can be overridden for the 88 cartridge used in the
L7500, L7600 and L7700 series.  That web page also lies:  it says that
instructions on how to override can be found on the printer, in the
user manual, or in the expiration message that appears on the computer
screen.  The alleged instructions are nowhere to be found.  That's why
I'm posting my query here.

How to override the ink expiration date, HP OfficeJet L7500/7600/7700 series?
I want to eliminate the "ink cartridge missing or damaged" error from my HP all-in-one. I'm exploring three options, and option two is overriding the expiration date. - According to the official HP information at http://www.hp.com/pageyield/articles/us/en/InkExpiration.html , the HP88 cartridge is "Able to continue after override." - According to the footnote on that official webpage, override instructions are either "on the printer, in the user manual, or in the ink cartridge expiration message on the computer screen." Three swings and a miss...

Where is the CMOS battery on an HP OfficeJet L7500/7600/7700 series?
(This is #1 in a series of 3 posts. This posting may sound like a FAQ, but the information I've dug up so far doesn't apply to this printer family.) I want to eliminate the "ink cartridge missing or damaged" error from my HP all-in-one. I'm exploring three options, and option one is removing or isolating the CMOS battery in the printer. Unfortunately, the only diagram I could find on the web is for a different model of AIO. Can someone tell me (or point me to a website that shows) the location of the CMOS battery in an OfficeJet L7500/7600/7700 series A...

Secret keyboard combinations on an HP OfficeJet L7500/7600/7700 series?
I want to eliminate the "ink cartridge missing or damaged" error from my HP all-in-one. I'm exploring three options, and option three is to use a magic key combination on the printer's own keyboard. Google has a cached page at http://cnet.nytimes.com/multifunction-devices/hp-photosmart-3310-all/4852-3181_7-31413613.html?ord=creationDate+desc that mentions a magic key combination on a Photosmart printer that resets the printer and resolves a bogus printer error.

HP Printer Ink Expiration & Warranty Date Secret Decoder Ring
As far as I can tell from googling like crazy, here are the six HP printer ink relevant dates. Note that most people throw away the ink cartridge upon the first (false) expiration date. Only those who read the google record know that first end-of-service date can be overcome, giving the user an additional year or two of useful service. I post this by way of peer review so that the experts can correct where I make any mistake. 1. Manufacture date = date printed on ink cartridge minus 30 months 2. Installation date = hand written on ink cartridge when first installed 3. Install-by date = manuf...

HP Officejet 7310xi printer & OS 9.2.2

It's is installed on my Cube all right (384M ram, OS 9.2.2) but if you select the HP Inkjet V6.6.2 driver, you get an error message saying that it couldn't be loaded into memory, and to increase the application minimum memory allocation.

Galerie Pear Paper on HP OfficeJet 4200 series & HP ink
Hi there, I've been using this paper with this printer for a few months now without problem. I have a colour calibrated system. However, I tried printing a black and white image for the first time yesterday and unfortunately in natural daylight there is a significant green colour cast to the image. The image uses an RGB colour space where half of the print contains a colour image, the other half the b&w image. The b&w image really is grey-scale. I print using the 'hp premium plus photo paper, matte' setting. I was unable to choose 'black print cartridg...
