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.

This means that there is issue with the Ink Cartridges.
Please remove and re-insert the cartridges.
Check the expiration date on them. Also make sure that you are using genuine HP Cartridges, not refilled or Remanufactured.
If the issue still persists, please replace the ink cartridges.

I can't get my HP DeskJet F300 series back online.I ve done everything, I ve even stopped the print spooler and started it again but the same problem still exists.And another problem that the ink cartidge...


First, the cartridges. This printer uses a 21 for Black and a 22 Tri-Color. The 58 is a Photo cartridge that replaces the 22, not the 21. Make sure that the cartridges are properly placed in the printer. The next step is the easier one. Might sound like some work, but it is the best way to correct conflicts with HP branded printers. First, uninstall the printer from the PC completely. Use the uninstall function. When that is done, re-install the printer onto the PC and test it. This should solve your problems, as long as there is not physical issues with the printer itself.

HP Deskjet F4180 Color changes and lines in photo printing


HP always recommend that ink cartridge should be replace by original ink.

As this kind of scenario will occur if the ink will just be replace by a refill ink.

I have a HP Deskjet F4180 AIO. It is printing


If you just replaced the ink cartridges, make sure you've removed the plastic tabs that cover where the ink shoots out. If they are old cartridges, make sure that the nozles haven't dried up. Remove the cartridges and dab a cloth (one you don't mind staining) where the ink shoots out, if all the colours show up, it's clear. If you notice very little colour, or none at all, try dampening the cloth and wiping down the cartridges to promote inkflow through the nozles. Hope this helps.
