Why my HP printer does not detect cartridges?

It would be a good idea if you clean the contacts of your cartridge  box receiver. Just turn the printer on, and open the cover as you did when replaced the cartridge. Remove the cartridge and clean the box where it is  fitted in with a dry cloth.
Reinstall the cartridge and try to print.
If the problem still there, I suggest you uninstall the HP driver software and remove it from your PC. Unplug the printer from your PC, restart the computer and when in Windows again, plug your printer and power it on. Windows will detect a new device. If you have windows 7 or 8, they should already have the drivers installed, let Windows look for the driver and when ready you will print again with no issues. Why this? HP driver software has a kind of control in it that detects refilled or other branded cartridges that presents some issues in a while

Hope this helps
