Question about HP DeskJet 6122 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Won't print; ink light blinking;

What I've tried: I have taken out both ink cartridges, wiped them, replaced them, and snapped them into place, and the light keeps blinking. I've turned off the printer several times and also it and the computer overnight.

The printer system is convinced there's a problem with one or both cartridges but even replacing them doesn't work.

My computer reports both have plenty of ink.

Why my printer say yellow cartridge missing,i replaced all of them


First thing I would do is to remove the yellow and put it back in, making sure it snaps in place properly. If that doesn't fix it you might be having a problem with the electrical connections on the print-head. Print-heads do act up sometimes. If it were mine, I would remove the ink cartridges and then remove the print-head and clean the electrical connections off on the print-head and the corresponding connections on the printer, using a alcohol wipe or something similar. Reinstall the print-head and ink and try it again. If that does not work you may need to replace your print-head. They are about 30-40 bucks online.

How to remove & clean the Print Head


1.Turn on the printer. Open the cover to expose the printer carriage. Wait for 3 seconds and unplug the printer from the electrical outlet. The print cartridge will stay in place by unplugging the power.

2.Remove the ink cartridge from the carriage by lifting up on the tab holding each cartridge in place. Remove the ink cartridge by pulling it out and up.

3.Use a lint-free cloth to gently wipe the copper contacts on the bottom of the ink cartridges. If the residue is stubborn and won't wipe off, use a cotton swab dipped in bottled water to remove the residue by rubbing gently. Do not wipe the nozzle on the ink cartridge; wipe only the flat contacts. Lay the cleaned ink cartridge on it side on newspaper. Do not stand it upright with the copper contacts touching the newspaper or the ink will drain out.

4.Use the lint-free cloth to wipe the contact points in the print carriage. If the residue won't come off, use a cotton swab wet with bottled water to remove the residue. Wait 5 minutes after you have cleaned the printer contacts before replacing the ink cartridge.

5.Place the ink cartridges back in the printer cartridge. Snap down the top to secure the cartridges. Plug the power cord in the wall outlet. Close the cover. The printer is ready to use after running through the initialization.

Won't Print Color Ink


INK PROBLEM
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Keeps asking for me to replace black ink cartridge even after replacing twice


Please remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Please snap the cartridges back into the cartridge carrier and please try to print a printer self test.
Good Luck!!!!

I cannot get my printer to print in black. I have restarted, checked the power cables, replaced the ink catridge and still it won't work. It happened suddenly from one print job to the next


1. Get a damp paper towel.
2. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.
3. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean.
4. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
5. Snap the cartridges back into the printer.

Good Luck!!!!!

I put in new ink cartridges and now there is an E and 2 red blinking lights


Which lights are blinking red? What is the rate of the flashes? I'll assume that one of the blinking lights is the power light (just means error).

If the either of the ink cartridge lights is blinking rapidly, the cartridge may not be seated correctly. Try reseating the cartridges and then press OK to clear the error. If it is a less rapid flash it could be that the print head isn't reading the cartridge ink level correctly. Please note: refilled or non-Epson cartridges may not be read correctly due to information stored in a chip on the cartridge or in the printer.

In this case the problem may be in the print head and Epson doesn't recommend cleaning this yourself. You can replace it. (On other inkjets, pop out the cartridges, remove the print head and wipe with soft, lint-free cloths or q-tips dampened with bottled or distilled water (wring out excess water). On each section, you wipe away from the nozzles. Then wipe off the inside of the print head carriage (contacts) as well. Dry everything with a dry cloth and reassemble the printer.)

If the Check paper light is blinking check for a paper jam or the printer looking for a different paper size.

I hope this helps.

I just replaced black ink cartridge and snapped all cartridges back in place and recharged the printer now it wont recognize the black ink cartridge even though it was just replaced


Try wiping the copper contacts on the new cartridge with a dustfree cloth dampened with some alcohol. Dry thoroughly before reinstalling.

Replaced new color cartridge and now printer will not print color


Try these steps if this fails then get the cart exchanged as Lexmark cart comes with 6 months warranty in it :


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Nothing will print; blinking amber light


Are you out of ink? when you open the lid to the printer while it is turned on look at were your ink cartridge stops and that will tell you if you are out of colour or black ink. Which light is blinking the one on top of the paper symbol or the one on top of the ink symbol. It may be that your cartridge either black or white just need to be taken out and put back in I found that if I wiped the bottom of the ink cartridge where sometimes you get build up that it would work again or give it a shake but make sure you cover up the bottom were the ink comes out before you shake it. Hope this helps!
