    I have an HP Deskjet which can print with a color cartridge perfectly,
    but will not detect a new black ink cartridge and print with it. I
    tried cleaning the connectors with a q-tip. Does anyone have any
    ideas on what has gone wrong and how to fix it?

  2. I ran into the issue of a reman cartridge not working - maybe the same
    issue. Try shimming under the cartridge with layers of paper to raise it
    just a bit. My hypothesis was that the cartridge probably worked when it
    left the reman place. And they probably usually work. So therefore it
    should work in mine. The only thing left was that the pins weren't hitting
    properly and shimming did the trick.
