Question about HP DeskJet 3740 C9026A Printer

1 Answer

Printer My printer printed yesterday and today it won't print. The front green on/off light (doesn't flash) it is ok, but the printer doesn't respond to print. It has done this before and I have gotten it to print. Would the print quene have anything to do with it not printing? It has two print quenes on it and I can't get them to go away. I don't think anything is really wrong with it. I had a paper jam and I took the back door off and took it out, and I have pulled the two cords on the back of the printer and waited about 10 seconds before plugging them back into the computer. What now????? JanieJ

Re: Printer

Unplug the cable from the computer to the printer, make sure you got all of the jam out. Unplug the power from the wall wait a few seconds and plug back in. (with usb cable still unplugged)Then try deleting all documents from the que. If the machine is in the ready mode, (green light on) plug usb cable in and try again. Let me know if this solves you problem. If not we can try a few other things.

Blinking/flashing lights(orange & green) & won;t pring. Have rebooted computer and unpluged printer. still won't print.

that is because ur head of ur printing cartridge is damaged.

remove ur cartridges black as well as color
n install only black cartridge n check d blinking of lights on ur printer if it doesn't blinks it's mean ur black cartridge is OK but ur blinking of light on ur printer is same it's mean ur head of black cartridge is damaged
after this process remove the black one cartridge and install the color one cartridge n check d blinking of lights on ur printer if it doesn't blinks it's mean ur color cartridge is OK but ur blinking of light on ur printer is same it's mean ur head of color cartridge is damaged
now take a dry cotton cloth n gently clean ur cartridges head install both cartridges on ur printer n check ur blinking light on ur printer that will work only if u r too lucky other wise u have to purchase a one cartridge.

Hi I am not getting any Red from my printer

It's possible magenta ink to be finished, or the print head is dirty and it has dry ink on it. You must clean it with hot water. You must use the printer from time to time to avoid to dry the ink cartridge or print head.

Flashing yellow light. paper does not load.

It's trying to say that the page you are trying to print is too complex.If you press the button to cintinue it may print out part of the page. Check the printer driver for print resolution settings. Change it to 300dpi and try again. Or, you could always add some extra memory to the printer. If you decide to add extra memeory, don't forget to tell the print driver it has more memory

Up until today, my i950 was printing perfectly. Today, after it flashes green, I get 7 flashing yellow lights. I noticed one ink cartridge was loose. Putting it back into place did not fix the problem,...

It indicate that your print head may defective probably cause by electrical connection. OK u may try this, unplug the print head and clean the print head electrical contact part and also the printer itself contact part with dry paper and install it back. Make sure the contact part is fix into the holder completely. Hope this help.
