Re: wont print

Hi, yes I have had problems with these HP printers B4 and it was in fact the INK... strange as it may seem, Ya gota have them "Full" as it were. I have "Fooled" it sometimes by removing the cartridge(s) and powering on & of re-inserting them. But eventually always ended up paying thru the nose for the cartridges. I saved a bit by using refilled ones, but I now use printers that have cheap single color ones, eg: Canon i550

HP 920c does not print color. I have replaced inks - color & black. When I switch mode to B&W only, all images and text prints. When i switch back to color, only the B&W stuff prints

Try reseating the color cartridge and cofirming that the blue/green tape was completely removed from the back and bottom of the cartridge. Run a head cleaning and if that doesnt correct it then you may have a bad ink cartridge. It is possible that the printer is bad but I find that unlikely.

My printer has an almost full black cartridge but will not print.

Check the ink lines, the printer head might be clogged, If thats not fixing anything then check your printer settings on the computer and remove the color option. Changing it to black and white can somtimes just be from color, not just black.

HP deskjet 920C replaced both ink cartridges and now it prints in

When we see high page volume in these printers, the cleaning ink resorvor needs to be cleaned. It may be even to teh point of stopping the head cleaning carriage from functioning.

It sounds like it is not priming and wiping the head of the cartridges correctly.

You can also try setting the head of the cartridge on a damp warm (water wet) paper towel. If there is ink coming out onto the paper towel you know it is the printer not the cartridge. If you are not seeing any color then I would change the cartridges again.

My printer could not print

Try installing the color cartridge. Some printers won't work if one of the cartridges is empty or defective.

The light you describe is the ink light.
When that light is blinking, try this.

Turn on the printer. Open the front cover and look at the carrier for the ink cartridges. There is a white arrow right above the latch for the color cartridge.
Once the carrier stops moving, the white arrow should be pointing to a symbol which represents the problem (the reason the light is blinking.) Examples are low ink black, low ink color, sick black ( replace ) , sick color ( replace ).

IF you have just replaced your black cartridge, you might need to replace your color cartridge too.
This printer will not work without both ink cartridges installed and full.
You cant print with a full black and an empty color cartridge unfortunately, even if you only want to print black.

Hope this helps!
