There is another website with a whole discussion on this problem.

It has everything to do with the cartridges. I had just refilled a color at Walgreens, and it wouldn't work. I switched to an old (empty) one and it does work. Several people say that hard core cleaning will solve it.

Hi.
I think it must be the ink blow-by, you must clear the ink path through the printer head. Try to activate the cleaning of the head pins. Just go to the printer icon then right click and click the printing preferences then look for the head cleaning menu. then try to print test by doing a cold reset.

I have an hp deskjet 940c. I don't know if this is the same model as deskjet inkjet. Anyway what light is on or off on the front when a new ink cartridge(s) is needed?


For the HP 940c, there is only one light to indicate a possible low ink cartridge. The LED above the cartridge symbol (the only one without a button) will flash. (Note: this LED is the second from the left.) When you see the error code, open the printer's top cover. If the error is a low ink issue, the LED will stop blinking.

With the cover open, the cartridge carrier will move until the yellow arrow lines up with an icon on the printer itself. These five icons are in order from left to right (as you look at the cartridges) : tri-color ink cartridge problem, black ink cartridge problem, tri-color ink low, black ink low and cartridges OK. If both cartridges are low, replace the one indicated by the arrow. Then the cartridge carrier will move to indicate the other cartridge is low. (If only one has a problem, after you replace it, the carrier will move to the cartridge OK symbol.)

If HP offers the full-feature software for your OS, then install the software. Use the HP Deskjet Toolbox to get exactly which cartridge needs to be replaced without needing to be ready to replace both (or to monitor your ink level (approximate ink level)).

The manual for the Deskjet 940c is available as a PDF from HP: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DocumentIndex.jsp?contentType=SupportManual&lang=en&cc=us&docIndexId=64179&taskId=125&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=35985 .

I hope this helps.

the moving ink frame is probably pointing to a symbol such as replace color ink( three dots on ink cartridge picture). Replace color ink. You are probably printing your black and white documents with colored ink--always select black or greyscale.

Far left light blinks/ printer wont work


And the cartridges are the correct ones?
After changing it should ask if the cartridges are new or the old ones. If it does not, reinstall the printer.

Sorry to state the obvious, but you never know. Did the blue tape covering the head and contacts get removed from the cartridges?
