Try cleaning off the contacts on the ink carriage with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. The part that connects to the copper contacts on the printhead. You can't harm them by cleaning this way. And the alcohol evaporates pretty quick. Canon ink is 65% alcohol and this dissolves and cleans off ink residue on any part of the printer. Sometimes these contacts get dirty over time and won't read print heads installed any more. This fixes about half the printers like this I have problems with.

If cleaning doesn't help, and a new print head won't work, then the only fix is to replace the ink tank carriage assembly.

SOURCE: My HP Laserjet 2840 all in one beeps when printing

unfortunately, your printer uses all of the carts even for just black prints.

press the check mark key and scroll down to diagnostics.

select disable cartridge check

But then you won't know when you're out of a certain color.

SOURCE: BJC55 Printer not printing

There are some possibilities due to the above phenomena. Let's discuss about it:
1) If the POWER light is flashing green, then your printer is now warming up or performing maintenance procedure (replacing cartridge/tank) or cleaning print head, just wait a few seconds till the light stop flash. Also if the last page of a print job not done, this POWER light flashing green.
2) If the CHARGE/ERROR light is flashing orange with beep 3 times, it mean your cartridge need to be install (especially the 1st time turn on printer) or cartridge being replaced, just install the cartridge and press RESUME to continue.
3) If both POWER light is flashing green and CHARGE/ERROR light is flashing orange with beep 3 times, then your printer may facing a very serious error and maybe need a replacement.

Hope these help.

Hp photosmart c4680


The HP C4680 is a powerful all-in-one printer that combines an easy interface and connection process with powerful printing capability.
With a small time investment and minimal effort, even the least tech-savvy home user among us can have their HP C4680 up and running in no time, and take full advantage of all of its printing power.

Connect the AC adapter from the AC terminal on the upper right-hand side of the back panel of the printer to an electrical outlet or surge protector.
Power on the printer using the power button on the front panel of the printer and specify language and country preferences using the prompt on the main display of the printer.

Remove the pink tape from the print heads on the provided ink cartridges.
The tape should come off easily with gentle pressure.

Install the cartridges by opening the main door on the front of the printer and placing the cartridges into the cartridge cradles.
The HP logo should be facing up. Push the cartridge into the cradle until it clicks into place.

Attach the USB cable from the printer's USB port to a USB port on your computer and power on the printer.
Install the setup CD that came with the printer into your computer's CD-ROM drive and follow the steps for installing the printer software on your computer.
Your HP C4680 is now set up and ready to use.

I have an HP C4680..After a paperjam I am unable to print black and white. Copy comes out a very light green, almost unreadalbe...any suggenstions


Sometimes the Paperjam can cause the print heads to mis-align. Pull out the cartridges, turn the printer off. wait 2 mins or so, turn the printer back on, replace the cartridges and try again. Also ink can build up on the print heads, causing print quality issues. See this link to clear it up. http://www.fixya.com/support/r3986425-unblock_print_heads
