SOURCE: my printer doesn't work

Your printer's manual is here: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00392271.pdf Look under Troubleshooting/Power Light is flashing. It's in pdf format, so I can't copy the relevant info, but it sounds like a simple problem.

Like the post above, take both cartridges out of the printer and close the lid. The printer should start to activate the printer arm. Then once the printer is done moving replace the cartridges and close the lid. Press print!

If manual feed mode is not wanted, change the setting from the printer properties. See the User Guide for information about changing printer properties. OR Take one of the following actions:
  • The page being printed might be too complex for the printer memory capacity. To continue printing, press and release the GO button. The printer might print a partial page, or the quality might be lower than normal.
  • Lower the resolution. See the User Guide for information about understanding print quality settings and changing print quality settings.
  • Add more memory. See the User Guide for information about installing DIMMs (HP LaserJet 1300 series only).

  4. Check for any media jams and clear them. (See the user guide for information about clearing jams.
  5. Check that the left side panel is completely closed. If the left side panel is completely closed, open the left side panel and push the door sensor. Occassionally, if the left side panel appears closed, the sensor will still remain in the open position, generating this error. Pushing the sensor will shut the door tight, returning the printer to the normal mode.

If I am not printing continuously, the printer does not print the first 5-6 printing jobs. When print job sent to the printer I get a blank page (printing job can be more than one page). After the blank...


Hi there,
It seems that " Print on both sides (Manually)" is selected in printing options., when you want to print any document Go to file Print > select printer and click properties and disable the Manual printing option in device settings.
You should be able to get printing without errors,
if the option is not checked then check for the default paper tray,
save the settings and reboot your laptop/desktop and restart printer as well so that settings should work properly and any given command gets clear from memory, If these all settings are ok, Uninstall the printer driver and download the latest version drivers from HP website and install see links below

Paper feed not working. green button and orange


I assume you mean that the power and resume lights are blinking. This signals a carriage stall. Open the top cover, if the cartridge cradle moves to the right, it isn't stuck and may be a one-time issue. If it is stuck, unplug the power to the printer. Open the access door and observe the carriage position. Clean any lint or paper pieces out. Remove any obstructions. Move the cradle and continue checking for lint, paper and obstructions until the entire area is cleaned out. If the print carriage started out on the left side, return it to that position to make sure the cartridges are back in the capping station. Look inside the printer along the cartridge cradle path for obstructions and remove any. Remove the rear access door and check for paper pieces, remove any obstructions.

Plug in and turn on the printer and see if the carriage returns to the left and reseats itself in the capping station. Close up the printer.

If this doesn't work, the printer may need service.

I hope this helps.

Solution :

  2. If the problem persists, replace the cartridge. If the print-cartridge light is still blinking but the Attention light is not on, turn the printer off and then back on again.
  3. If the problem continues, contact HP Customer Care for technical support at http://www.hp.com/support/clj2500 or http://www.hp.com/support/clj1500 . Or see the flyer that came in the printer box for additional contact information.

Printing problem HP Deskjet 930C


I'm only guessing here but try cleaning the contact points of the cartridge using tissue but not touching the nozzles. Then clean also the contact points on the printer. If that doesn't work then I would bring it to HP for a check up. Hope this helps.
