Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

The power button keeps flashing on hp deskjet F4180. I've done just about everything to get this to work. It is almost like the ink cartridge holder isn't working properly. When I open the door to put in the ink the cartridge doesn't move to the center.

     The flashing power button means that it is attempting  to print. Have you tried cancelng all print jobs. Your owners manual for your combo printer says that if the cartarge does not go to the middle , thrn off the printer and then turn it back on again. have you done aboth of the above?

Also another thing to try is to unplug the printer because sometimes printers hold jobs even if you clear them from the computer so unplugging it is sorta like doing a hard reboot on the computer.
When you plug it in the ink cartidge should move.

If ink dried out it's done. Recycle it and get new cartridge. If cartridge is more than 50 dollars don't buy it. Go to Walmart and you can by a brand new cannon printer with ink cartridge for $49.00

My hP deskjet F4288 shows ERROR symbol


I would remove the refill. HP voids the warranty if the cartridge leaks. I have seen refills leak and destroy the printer. Replace with a brand new cartridge. If that is not the solution you want. You can remove the cartridge and clean it with rubbing alchohol and a paper towel or a q-tip, just make sure there is no fuzz left when your done. Also if you have the HP software installed on your computer, there is usually a cleaning program built into the software.

Your printer might be having hardware problems. You can try removing and reinserting the printer cable. It might be loose due to the constant movement it does during printing. Also, inspect your cartridge. It is possible you have not removed the plastic covering the nozzle.

New Ink cartridges registering as empty ...


Is it an HP printer? We had the same problem at work with print cartridges purchased at Staples. They have a major quality control problem. Your new print cartridge may be empty or dried out (died on the shelf). It's my problem at work, as I have over 80 HP deskjets, and Purchasing still insists on buying the Staples cartridges rather than the HP.

Sometimes if you shake a print cartridge really hard it may correct the problem. However, I would buy or borrow a black HP print cartridge and try it out in your printer. Works almost every time on the job. Good luck.
