Normal 0 Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

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

Check the End of warranty date on both the cartridges.
Deskjet 882c printer does not support reserve mode printing.
Means, even if only cartridge is defective or expired the printer will not print with other cartridge which is fine.

Both the cartridges should in inwarranty and fine.
Shake the cartridges well
With the color and black cartridges touch a clean, slightly damp cloth (squeeze out excess water),
to the printer nozzle area on the print cartridge, to see if you can make the ink flow freely.

Be careful not to touch the nozzle area (with holes on it) on the cartridges.
Wipe the copper-colored electrical contacts with a clean distilled water or clean tap water and then with a dry lint-free cotton cloth
Also using a new swab, clean the electrical contacts inside the printer, in the carriage.

Install both the cartirdges in the printer, disconnect the printer from the computer and try to print a self test and diagnostic page

Running a sample page
Turn the printer on.
Press and hold the RESUME button until the printer starts printing.
Release the RESUME button.

Running a diagnostic test
Turn the printer on.
Press and hold the POWER button.
Press the RESUME button four times.
Release the POWER button.
