How do I put in a ink cartidge in my hpdeskjet 940C?


Turn on the printer and lift the top cover. Wait for the print cartridges to move to the center of the printer. Tilt the cartridges forward and carefully lift them out of the printer.

Then install the new cartridges, putting the bootom of the cartridge in first. then raise until it clicks.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Hpdeskjet problem


A light blinking under the cancel button usually indicates a problem with the color cartridge.
Go to this page for instructions on resolving that issue - about halfway down the page is a picture of your printer control panel with both the left and right light blinking. The section explains that it's to help if "One or both print cartridge status lights are on and blinking."

How do you check the ink levels of the cartridges on a hp deskjet 940c


Hi,
If the ink level is low in a print cartridge, the Print Cartridge Status light stops flashing when the printer’s top cover is opened. When you open the panel the ink cartridges slide to the center , as far as checking the ink level find and right click on the printer icon, click properties, and find ink cartridges and ink levels.
Thanks
Shereena.

My hpdeskjet 940c wont accept a 4X6 photo paper It tries but the paper doesn't slide through


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.

Rhinotek color cartridge not recognized in my HP printer. what can I do?


Non-HP cartridges often give troubles in HP printers. Probably the best thing you could do is just use HP cartridges.

First make sure that there is ink in the color cartridge. Take a damp cotton pad and put the cartridge on it for a few secs. This will bleed the colors out . See that you get all the colors. Then

Go to Control Panel> Printers and Faxes> right click on your printer's icon, go down to properties. There under advance, you can do a head cleaning. Under color management, set it to automatic.
Let me know the results.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Print cartridge


This may sound simple, but did you remember to remove the tape covering from the ink cartridge before installing it? If so, run a self-test and let me know the results:

1. Turn the printer ON.
2. Press and hold the POWER button.
3. Press the RESUME button FOUR times.
4. Release the POWER button.

You should get a nicely printed self-test. If it fails, there may be other troubleshooting methods we can employ.
I hope this helps!
