Question about HP DeskJet 1120cse InkJet Printer

7 Answers

No printing The cartridge light blinks and the printer won't print. I've tried removing and reinserting the cartridges and it doesn't make a difference, even letting the levers push the cartridges into place instead of pushing them down by hand. I'm looking for ideas of what specifically to check for an clean and an reluctant to buy new cartridges to test with because I can't use them in another printer if this one isn't going to work.

There can be a few causes for the ink light to blink. 1 - the cover isn't well shut. open and close it, and check for any obstructions. 2 - you're out of ink. let's assume you have this option covered, but if you want to check, look for the yellow indicator arrow on the cartridge. 3 - the carts don't sit right, or have a bad connection due to dried ink on the contacts. Take a damp cloth and gently wipe the contacts on the printer side till you get most of the ink off. Next, take the carts, and submerge them in hot water(1-2 mm high) so that only the contacts are in the water. Let the water dissolve the ink for a few minutes, take the carts out, give the contact area a few more wipes, wipe them dry, and try inserting them into the printer again. If you want to check with new parts, but rightly don't want to waste the money, try borrowing. Hope this helped

Please see web page: www.glassmoyer.net/HP2000C. Regardless if carts have ink or not, they can be expired and therefore rejected by printer default software - (not printer drivers). This is internal printer software, the printer's OS for lack of better words. Suggest you try a set of auto-reset chip cartridges, shown on web page above. Email me if interested from link on page. I repair 2000C's and offer fully refurbished ones as page will show.

I just figured out my issue. It had to do with DEP − Data Execution
Prevention. I had remembered that I was fooling around with this a couple
weeks ago and had changed it to "Turn on DEP for all programs and services
except those I select" in which I had Windows Explorer checked. I just got
done selecting the original which states "Turn on DEP for essential Windows
programs and services only", rebooted, and now I can print again to my hp
7350 printer.
The DEP can be found under control panel−>system−>Advanced Tab−>Performance
Settings−>Data Execution Prevention Tab
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: the check print cartridge light won't stop

If you are sure that the cartridge you are installing is the correct cartridge for the printer, then there must be something wrong with the cartridge, if you still have the old one, install it and see whether the same problem persists or not. If the problem persists, then clean the contacts (dotted golden contacts) and on the cartridge using a soft brush/cotton dipped in alcohol/acetone/spirit. After they're dried, reinstalled it. But if there's no similar problem with the old cartridge, then the new cartridge might be a defective cartridge. You better get another replacement.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

New color cartridge won't print


Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues with your model:

  1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
  2. Go to Programs.
  3. Go to Lexmark 2600 Series folder.
  4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print cartridge nozzles.

After printing the test page, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

The blinking light could indicate either a paper jam, communication problem between one of your cartridges and the printer or a short in one of your cartridges. Please follow the steps below to identify and fix the problem:
  1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Make sure there are no foreign objects or debris in the feeder.
  2. Open the printer cover and remove both the cartridges.
  3. While the cover is open, ensure there are no paper jams and the cartridge carrier is free from obstructions.
  4. Close the printer cover.
  5. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it.
  6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first.
  7. Close the printer cover and check the light status.
  8. If light on printer is normal, open the printer cover and reinsert the other cartridge. Check the light status.
  9. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the light to flash with a new cartridge. You can also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.
  10. Load some paper. Try to print again.

If problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

HP DESKJET 1180C


HP Deskjet 1180c and1220c Professional Series Printer and HP Deskjet 9300 and 1280 Printer - Troubleshooting a Blinking Print Cartridge Light Introduction The Print Cartridge light continues to blink with both cartridges properly installed and the Access Cover (also known as the top cover or lid) closed. Instructions The blinking Print Cartridge light may be caused by a faulty cartridge, the plastic case of the printer being dislodged or slightly out of position (which prevents the Access Cover from seating properly), the Access Cover sensor (also known as the top cover sensor or lid sensor), or by the actuator on the Access Cover. Follow the steps below to resolve the issue.
  1. With the printer turned on, open the Access Cover. The carriage will move out of the capping station and stop at one of the cartridge status icons located inside the printer under the Access Cover. The yellow arrow on top of the carriage will point to one of the cartridge status icons to indicate a good, empty, or faulty cartridge. See Figure 1 below.
    1. If the carriage stops in the cartridge’s OK position, indicated by the happy face in Figure 1, continue with Step 2.
    2. If a problem is indicated with one of the cartridges, remove the cartridge and verify that the cartridge part number is correct. The black cartridge part number is 51645A and the color cartridge part number is C6578A or C6578D.
    3. If the cartridge part number is correct, clean the electrical contacts on the cartridge with a soft, lint-free cloth. Do not touch or wipe the nozzle plate.
    4. If a faulty cartridge is still indicated after verifying the cartridge part number and cleaning the contacts on the cartridge, replace the cartridge.
    5. After replacing the cartridge, turn off and then turn on the printer to clear the cartridge error from the printer's memory. If the cartridge error cannot be cleared, the printer will require repair. If the carriage stops in the cartridge’s OK position, indicated by the happy-face in Figure 1, continue with Step 2. NOTE: The printer checks the status of both print cartridges before printing. Both the black and color cartridge must be functional and installed in the printer in order to print.

    1. Open the Access Cover and hold it open.
    2. Dislodge the Access Cover from the hinges with a sharp blow to the hinge area of the Access Cover and then remove the Access Cover.
  3. Install the Access Cover by following the steps below:
    1. Align the hinges on the Access Cover with the hinge pins on the printer.
    2. Push down firmly on the Access Cover until the hinges snap into position.
  4. Close the top cover and wait for the printer to initialize. If the Print Cartridge light is still blinking, the printer case may be dislodged or slightly out of position. To restore the printer case to the proper position, squeeze the printer by applying pressure to the front and back pressure points shown in Figure 2. Figure 2: Pressure points c00006497.jpg Firmly squeeze the pressure points on the printer case as shown in Figure 3. If the Print Cartridge light continues to blink, continue with step 5.

  5. If the Print Cartridge light is still blinking, push down firmly on the center of the Access Cover (the extra pressure may engage the sensor).

    1. If the Print Cartridge light quits blinking with pressure applied, the Access Cover is faulty and should be replaced.
    2. If the Print Cartridge light continues to blink even with pressure applied, the Access Cover sensor may be faulty and the printer will require repair.
