HP Deskjet 940c keeps saying it's out of paper, won't print

My HP Deskjet 940c has started showing an error message that says it's out of paper and it's not. I've shuffled it and added to it but there's paper. It doesn't print anymore because of this. Sometimes when I turn it on in the morning, it automatically will print what I wanted from the day before. Can anyone help me. I liked the printer alot til this happened. Thanks

    I also have the same problem! Not sure what is wrong or how to fix it.

    I decided to take my printer to work to have my friend look at it. When we plugged it in there it worked fine. I brought it home and there is no more problem. Maybe it just the old, "unplug and replug" that did it. It's worth a try. It worked for me so far. Thanks for the posting and the help. Great site.

I have the same problem. In the error message box is a Cancel button.
If I don't click the Cancel then the print goes through just fine and I click Cancel when the print is finished.

Caution lite flashing over cartridge of hp deskjet 940c. error message says that there is not color ink cartridge in printer. There is and the interface says the tank is full. It won't print...


Even though the interface says the cartridge is full, if the printer detects it being empty, odds are you will have to replace the color cartridge, even though you are only printing black.
You can try taking the cartridge out and cleaning the contacts with a pencil eraser and reseat the color cartridge. If no change, replace the cartridge.

My HP deskjet 2050 all-in-one printer only shoots out blank paper and won't print. It used to say there was no paper in it, which there was. It scans & prints just fine - just won't print...


Any error messages on the printer digital screen or the desktop? I take it the "The ink is fine" means that there is ink in the cartridges!

Try a test print via the Control Panel> Printers and Faxes> properties > Print test page.

It doesn't print. The message doesn't seem to go


open the printer lid and check that the cartridges start moving towards the left side and they will stop in one of the "sad faces" then replace the bad cartridge corresponding to that "FACE"

Print a test page only in black. If little to no black shows, you need a black. If your color cartridge seems full, only get a new HP black ink cartridge.

Paper keeps feeding thru w/o printing. Prints a couple of lines jumbled (not what's on screen), throws it out and takes more paper.


Try uninstall the printer drivers and download then install the latest version. This blank paper printing with random "symbols" are caused by incompatible drivers.
