So, I have in my hands my 2nd replacement and all installed. 
The first set of CIS for my HP 7500a the yellow was all over the place. 
This replacement set had tons of AIr in the line and  the yellow had Black on the top of the sponge when I went to prime it!  Gosh!!!  It's been ever so FRUSTRATING! Nothing should be this Hard!!!!!
Now, I primed ALL the stinkin' colors and the YELLOW will NOT prime!!  the syringe just springs back up and the air still is in the line. 
Then, I tried to print again and it said the carts are missing or damaged!!
Seriously?  This is getting ridiculous!

I had to UNCLOGG the yellow...so now that works. 
I'm still getting the 'THe MESSAGE "The following ink cartridges appear to be missing or damaged" is still there!! "
I've placed the old carts in the printer and turned it off and unplugged it for a couple of hours, took out the old carts and replaced the CIS INK carts and still NO GO!

you might have to do that a couple times.
clean the CISS chips with rubbing alcohol, install em.  if it doesnt work, do the whole reinstall the old cartridges, turn off and unplug the printer for 3 to 5 minutes at the least, then install the CISS again. 
sometimes it takes like 3 times. It can be a b*tch sometimes, but when it does work you'll be super happy lol.
Hope that helped you.
