My hp deskjet 6940 inkjet printer doesn't show me level of ink in cartridge


Print a diagnostic page If the steps above have not helped, print and evaluate a diagnostic page to see if the cartridges or the printer is causing the problem.
  1. Make sure the printer is on and loaded with unused, plain, white paper.
  2. Press and hold the Power button and then press the Cancel button. Release both buttons. The diagnostic page prints. Figure 1: Power and Cancel buttonsc00584735.gif 1 - Cancel button 2 - Power button
Step 4: Note which cartridges printed which areas of the diagnostic page You must identify which cartridge printed which part of the diagnostic page, so that if you find defects on the page, you will know which cartridge is the problem. However, you can install different combinations of print cartridges in your printer, and different cartridge combinations print different diagnostic page patterns. Your diagnostic page may not look exactly like the picture below, but the right and left cartridges will print in the same areas of the page no matter which cartridges are installed. Figure 2: Diagnostic page layout (the patterns in each area may look slightly different on your page)c00584715.gif 1 - Printed by the right cartridge 2 - Printed by the left cartridge NOTE: If you are printing in reserve mode (one cartridge is missing), the missing cartridge's area of the diagnostic page will be blank. Step 5: Check ink levels NOTE: If you have installed a refilled or remanufactured ink cartridge, or a cartridge that has been used in another product, the ink level indicator is inaccurate or unavailable. Look in the middle of the diagnostic page. The bars with "E" (for "empty") and "F" (for "full") at each end show the ink levels in the cartridges. As ink is used, the solid color changes to a faded color. Figure 3: Left (tri-color) cartridge almost full - right cartridge emptyc00235259.gif Figure 4: Both left and right cartridges almost fullc00235260.gif

HP deskjet 6940 has been installed. I see it in printers and it says ready but nothing will print to it. On the front of the printer there is a blinking orange arrow. What does that mean?


hello, have you tried pressing the orange button to see if machine will continue and pick up paper and print, also are there any other lights that come on, you might want to take paper out, and turn it around, and install back in. and try again. you might also want to change one ink cartridge at a time to see if that also might be the problem

HP Deskjet printer 6940 clearly prints only top half of a page. The lower half fades and some lines fade completely. Many thanks for your help!


This problem is mainly due to driver corruption
1. Reinstall the driver or scan for viruses and remove it.
2. Remove all temp files from the drive.
3. Try removing corruption in OS or reload OS.
4. Try connecting to another system and take print out.
5. Chipset on the printer may be having problem, get it serviced.

My HP 6940 will not print envelpes. They feed part way through and stop. Doesn't even begin to print. Other documents print fine.


sdc323, first you want to make sure you have the correct drivers. Check here http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Lookup?h_lang=en&h_cc=us&cc=us&h_page=hpcom&lang=en&h_client=S-A-R163-1&h_pagetype=s-002&h_query=HP+6940&submit.x=3&submit.y=10. Normally you will have to uninstall the old drivers completely ...then reinstall the correct or updated drivers. Also, sometimes it depends on what program you are using to print the envelope (MS Word or Avery Design Pro, etc). What type of computer Operating system (Win XP,Vista, or Mac OS X) are you using? And what program are you using to print it? For a quick try at making it work, when the printer stops part way through, try pressing the resume (or enter) button. On occasion that will finish the print job.
