HELP PLEASE


Remove one cartridge and close the access door. If the cartridge light goes off, the bad cartridge has been removed. If the light continues to blink, remove the other cartridge and reinstall the first one. If the light goes off, the cartridge in the printer is the good one.

Thank you for your reply. However, I solved the problem by changing a faulty Inkjet cartridge.

The printer will not work. The green bottom


The Print Cartridge Status light flashes when one or both of the print cartridges is improperly installed or malfunctioning.

1. Open the printer's top cover.
2. Remove and re insert both the black and colour print cartridges and try printing again.

If the problem persists then you need to replace either the black or the colour print cartridge.
