SOURCE: printer error message
To eliminate a software problem, disconnect printer from pc and completely uninstall the printer driver and restart pc. Insert our printer driver cd and install the drivers, but do not connect printer until advised. When advised connect printer and ensure windows recognises it in the little pop up window in tool bar and says 'Your hardware is installed and ready to use' If the same message appears then the printer is faulty.

SOURCE: right cartridge incorrect
This solution (RESET the BRICK - solution 1 above) worked for me!
I had a brand new out of the box Lexmark X4580 and after one or two prints I was suddenly getting a "Left Cartridge Incorrect" error showing on the Printer Control Panel and the printer would now all me to print anything.
After about an hour of trying this and that (cartridges in, out and shalen all about!) ; no avail, I tried this and hey presto, it worked.
When I removed the "Brick" power supply I left it until the Green LED had faded right out though, I dont know if that was significant or not. Fingers crossed all is sorted now!

Many newer HP Printers internally keep track of your cartridges by a serial number embedded into the cartridge. When it's low, the printer remembers. This is entirely done within the printer itself, and not the printer software. Some printers EXPIRE the cartridges after 18 months according to the installation date even it is not empty.
Outrageous, but true.
A fix? Most HP printers will only keep 2 cartridges in memory, so if you have 2 extra cartridges, (even empty ones) you could cycle them through to reset the printers memory, and reset the ink level to full. Basically, even though you've refilled your cartridge, the printers has the cartridge's serial number stored in memory. This will reset it.
