Hp deskjet 920c

I had what I thought was a paper jam. I removed the paper, and it was not torn. Now the printer is blinking (the orange middle light) and won't print anything. I took it apart, nothing there. I rebooted, stil nothing, I can't make it print. Can you help me?

Ive replaced the ink cartridge in my printer and the orange light is still flashing. Ive taken it out and put it back in several times and nothing! HP DeskJet 920C


Check the rear access door, as well as if the top cover is being securely closed, make sure there are no paper jams and that the carriage is not 'stuck'...Press the RESUME button and see that the paper feeds, the carriage should move.

As a Tech, I also open the top cover, unplug the power cord, wait a minute (YES, 60 seconds) and Plug it back in. If the PRINT CARTRIDGE LIGHT continues to blink, open the cover on top again, making the cradle move and then stop.. Locate the yellow arrow and do as it indicates (It will point to a drawing of a cartridge that represents a symptom-perform the task associated with the symptom) other than that, remove and replace it it, making sure it firmly seats. As a last resort, return the cartridge and see if a New one fixes the problem. If these steps are unsuccessful, HP servicing is probably needed.

Hope this helps, Good Luck!

HP DeskJet 812C Hardware Problem! with Printer cartridge carriage. Printer Cartridge retracted into right side of case will not come out. There is No paper jam in machine to prevent it from doing so. ...

Disconnect the "data" cable (parallel or USB).
Disconnect the "power" cable.
Reconnect the "power" cable.
Turn the printer on.
Lift the printer's lid -- the print-carriage should slide the printer-heads to the "middle" position.

If all else fails, take the printer to a qualified technician, for more trouble-shooting.

Middle light blinking message says paper

Look for any small rips of paper caught in a sensor back there. There are little "fingers" that the paper runs over and its all timed. if one of those sensors are jammed with something or sticky, error messages.

Hp deskjet 5652 not printing, orange light flashing continuously

1. Check to insure the cover is shut down completely.

2. If the "Ink Drop" Icon is blinking you are either out of ink, or there is a problem with the cartridge carrier. So open the cover - the carriage should move to the middle, if not it is bound up somewhere. Check the guides and around the carriage area for gummy labels etc..

3. If the carriage moves to the middle, release the ink cartridges and replace.

4. If the "Arrow" Icon is blinking, this could be a result of a paper feed error. Remove the paper from the tray, open the cover and insure no jams are in the rollers. Shuffle the paper lightly and place back in tray. Check to make sure the tray is pushed completely forward and then press the "Arrow" Icon button until a sheet is fed into the printer.

* * Note: When you are replacing the Ink cartridges and before you remove the tape from the bottom heads, give them a shake to lossen up the ink before installing.

Hope this helps..

God Bless.......
