Question about HP Deskjet 3845 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HP Deskjet 3845

My printer is not quite 2 yrs old and has been working fine until I replaced the color cartridge. Now it prints for about 10 seconds, pauses, prints another 10 seconds, pauses, keeps doing this until the page is finished. I have no idea why it is doing this now. Any help will be appreciated. I went through all the troubleshooting steps but none of them solved the problem.

Sounds like the color cartridge is overheating. Could be defective, ESPECIALLY if it not an original Hp BRAND NEW cartridge. Change out the color cartridge and see what happens. Each tiny little nozzle has its own heating element. Electronics monitor the temperature. Will stop the printing until the temperature comes back to an acceptable range. Ed

HP Deskjet 3845 printing in blue yellow and green but no red. Print cartridges are new.


Check your cartridges. HP cannot guarantee the quality of remanufactured or refilled cartridges. Also make sure that the expiry date of the color ink is not reached. You should find it written on the cartridge itself.

Tip

The green light is blinking constantly and the printer won't print


When the green lamp constantly blinking this mean one or both print head are defective.Here we can find which cartridge is defective.Open cover put out color cartridge then close cover.If blinking stops replace color cartridge.If blinking continues put out black cartridge and put in color.If blinking stops replace black cartridge, if not stop replace both cartridges.
This printer can work with only one cartridge.If you don't use color printing just remove the color cartridge.

HP Deskjet 5550 quit printing red color. Installed new color cartridge HP57. Quit printing red again after 5 pages. Is it a printer problem or cartridge problem?


Have you check your color cartridge if they are properly installed.

Make sure your are not using a refill cartridge.

Replace your tri-color cartridge with original an HP tri-color cartridge.

Try uninstalling both printers and their software and then reinstall them, the 3845 first. See if you get the same results before installing the 2610.
