I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

To resolve the message Printhead Replacement Incomplete Restart It, complete the following steps:

Enter the Ink menu, and choose Replace Printheads.
This will move the carriage out into the open area under the main window.
Power Off by using the cutoff switch on the back of the printer (or just unplug the power cord).
Open the main window and open the carriage clamp, then remove all eight printheads. Also remove the paper so it may be freshly loaded later in this process. Also remove the network or computer connection (to isolate the printer).
Now is a good time - strongly suggested - to clean the carriage contacts and printhead contacts using the Users Cleaning Kit (that comes with the printer). Instructions are included in the kit.
Also at this point, it is a good idea to use that same kit (and its instructions) to clean the Encoder Strip, otherwise, the carriage may not accurately position over the Drop Detector.
With the carriage and printheads' contacts now all clean, keep the printheads out of the printer for now and close the carriage clamp. By hand, pulling the carriage belt, move the carriage over to the right side of the printer until it bumps against the carriage stop; close the main window, and power the printer on. When it is finished starting up, when prompted, press the OK button, and proceed to install the printheads.
We may encounter a message regarding the printheads. For example, a printhead may be reported as FAULTY or have a REPLACE message; if so, replace it with a new one.
After all the printheads are installed, the printer must test them all, and then align them by printing and scanning a pattern. This testing and alignment must not be interrupted. After it is complete, the printer will prompt Ready.
To prove the printer, HP suggests using the printer's internal prints, with the printer set to BEST print mode.

If these steps are done and the message Printhead Replacement Incomplete Restart It remains or returns later, contact HP representative or call HP Technical Support.

Last of all, service may be required (including new Ink Cartridges) to replace the SRK Tubes.
