    That's what I thought at first also. Turned out the network connection just needed to be reseeded. Thank you for the quick response.

Hi ljanda, this light usually means that your ink cartridge is running low on ink and should be replaced soon. If you need assistance on how to replace the cartridges please come back.

HP deskjet 6940 has been installed. I see it in printers and it says ready but nothing will print to it. On the front of the printer there is a blinking orange arrow. What does that mean?


hello, have you tried pressing the orange button to see if machine will continue and pick up paper and print, also are there any other lights that come on, you might want to take paper out, and turn it around, and install back in. and try again. you might also want to change one ink cartridge at a time to see if that also might be the problem

Hp 6940 printer has flashing resume and power light, no paper jam and carriage seems to move ok....


Check the Encoder Strip (metallic) that runs the length of the printer in the back of the carriage. If it is loose the carriage will not line up correctly in the printer and cause the lights to flash. On the inside right of the printer behind where the carriage sets when you change the ink look to see if the metallic encoder strip has come off the hook. If so simply reattach it to the little metal hook and the printer should start working again.

Hp deskjet d1560 printer light flashing


After your printer has completed its initial startup you should have a solid green light. If the light indicator is blinking or orange often this is an indication of a printer error. For example, this could indicate a paper jam, issue with the ink or toner cartridge, or other serious error.
Because there is no standard to what a blinking light or orange light means if you're getting either of these we suggest referring to the printer documentation for troubleshooting steps or methods of determining what the status indicator is reporting.

HP 6940 Deskjet Low Ink


It is not uncommon for a refilled HP ink cartridge to register as empty. If it was otherwise filled properly, it should yield the correct number of pages, but you may not be able to get the warning light to go out.

You can try tapping the cartridge on a hard surface. This only works sometimes. Be careful not to splash any ink.

I hope this helps.

Flashing lights


completely go throught all the area's that are possible for paper to get jammed in. Also make sure the print head is in the correct location when it is not printing. The lights indicate a critical jam or malfunction. After checking everything unplug the printer for 30 sec and plug it back in. also make sure that all doors and paper trays are properly closed or inserted. I hope this helps. Good luck

Out of paper light flashes even after paper is loaded


Flashing resume light also can mean:

1. cartridge is missing or an incorrect print cartridge is installed
2. cartridge is out of ink
3. dirty cartridge contacts
4. paper jammed

Check are cartridges firmly snapped into place and not empty. Use water to wash copper on cartridges if contacts are dirty.

HP Deskjet 6940 not printing after replacing ink cartridge


My HP Deskjet 6940 is not printing. The color (left) low ink light is dark and the black (right) low ink light is flashing. I replaced the black ink cartridge with a new one but the low ink light continues to flash. No tears/rips in the circuit strip and all the copper leads appear to be connected
