Question about HP DeskJet 3745 Printer

1 Answer

Printing My HP #3745 printer light started blinking nonstop. I did the test of removing one cartridge at a time and it seems both cartridges need replacing. I replaced a new black cartridge but do not have a colour one at present. Is there a way to print with only one cartridge?

The printer's black ink cartridge won't print without the Tri-color print cartridge


Most of the HP printers are designed to allow printing onlywhen all cartridges are installed and
have ink.
Install a new tri-color ink cartridge and printing will continue as usual.
My printer, which is HP, does the same thing as yours, until I replace the empty cartridge,
printing stops.

I have an HP DeskJet 3745 Printer installed in Windows 7 32-bit. It's properly installed, and it actually works -- the power light is on, and the containers of the cartridges move when printing. Only that,...


uninstall the printer, and go to HP.com, download the install program for your printer and OS, and follow install directions exactly, do not plug and play.

Hp printer 3745 is printing in green only.


Hi,
Uninstall your printer software and install it again and try to print again. It should work.. because your printer setting seems to be messed up. If it still does not work then it is recommended that you change your ink cartridge
Have a nice day!

Hp dj3745


it means either there are pending documents in the print que delete them,if no pending documents remaining in the printque.
then either of the print cartridge is faulty.remove the cartridges 1 by 1 and check and see whether its blinking .
if the blinking stops after removing black cartridge the blck is faulty, or if,the blinking stops after removing the colur cartridge the colour is faulty.
if still blinking then both the cartridges are faulty.

thanks.

The printer apear to be dead!


Buttons and lights on the printer Two buttons and three lights are located on the front of an HP Deskjet printer.
  • The lights tell when the printer is working or when it needs attention.
  • The buttons help control the printer.
Buttons and lights Purpose c00123886.jpg POWER button and light Push the POWER button to turn the printer off and on. When lit, the light shows that the printer is turned on. c00123889.jpg RESUME button and light The light blinks when there is a problem with paper. When the problem is corrected, press the button. c00123892.jpg Print cartridge light The light blinks when there is a problem with a print cartridge. When the problem is corrected and the top cover is closed, the light will stop blinking. Troubleshooting blinking printer lights Blinking lights Reason c00123895.jpg

All lights are off. The printer is off (asleep).

Press the POWER buttonc00123886.jpg to turn the printer on.

The printer should turn on automatically when a print job is sent to it. c00123898.jpg

The POWER (top) light is on. The printer is idle.

The printer is ready to print a document. c00123900.jpg

The POWER (top) light is blinking. The printer is busy printing.

Allow enough time to print. When a document has many fonts or graphics or uses complex color such as a color photo, it takes longer to begin printing. c00123902.jpg

The PRINT CARTRIDGE (bottom) light is blinking. Possible causes:

  • The front cover is open. Make sure the front cover is completely closed.
  • The print cartridge is missing. Make sure the print cartridge has been installed correctly.
  • The print cartridge is broken or incompatible. Lift the front cover, and wait for the print-cartridge cradle to slide out. Check the part numbers on the print cartridge:


Black: 51645A

Color: C1823D,

If the print cartridges are compatible and correctly installed, they may be defective. Try replacing the print cartridges.

If none of the above suggestions fix the problem, and, if the error message still occurs, it may be a hardware failure. Call the HP Customer Support Center.

Won't work, "Colour" indicator + "Check cartridge" indicators blinking all the time when the printer is on, although the colour cartridge is only half-full. And when I say "won't work", I mean it - won't...


I had the same problem and I accidentally found out that if you press the cancel/resume button + the color scan, the printer starts printing a test page I had never seen before (includes error codes and stuff?!?!) and color as well as black comes out perfect but it will go back again into color cartridge problems after printing. Could it be something with the printer software itself? Hell, I am kind of getting sick with HP products. They are overrated and cannot be serviced. Kinda disposable printer although it was being sold as medium range all in one printer.
