Question about HP DeskJet 5150 InkJet Printer
I have followed all instructions from manual about correcting flashing arrow alert: No paper jam, reconnecting printer without going thru surge protector, etc., etc.
Printer worked fine til I replaced the color cartridge (hp 57). Since then printer has not worked and arrow won't stop flashing yellow.
Printer about 4 years old and this is my first problem. Help?

Same problem with me.
I openede the whole box ( 4 screws ) in the corners. Then I presed the tiny belt on the left side to its socket, cleaned the contacts of the cartridges (56,57) with water and made them dry.
Then I reched the position of the small door which is ment to be opened once you wnat to replace the cartridge.
After this the printer works again.

Well....I solved the problem......bought a new Canon printer!!
I tried everything...unplugging, cleaning everything that was mentioned above. I was onto HP online support several time, but they were absolutely no help at all...they basically told me that the cartridge must be damaged or ink dried up and to buy a new cartridge to see if the error persisted.....I don't think so!!!
I will never by HP again after having issues with the last two I have had. I love my new Canon printer it is EVERYTHING that HP wasnt.
