What do the three lights on the top right of the 920c HP printer indicate?


The first light (from left to right) is the Print Cartridge Status.

This will flash if one or more of the ink cartridges are low or the cartridge incorrectly inserted. Also flashes if the wrong type of cartridge inserted.
If the ink is low the light will stop flashing when you open the top cover of the printer.

The second light is the Resume Light.
This will flsh when anaction isequired such s loading paper or clearing a paper jam.

The third light is the Power light.
This will flash green when the printer is printing.

Hope this helps you. Thanks for using FixYa.

The bottom light on the right front of the machine is flashing red. Could you tell me what that means.


It means there is a problem with one (or both) of your ink jet cartridges. They may be low or out of ink or not installed properly.

Refer to this page: HP 800 Series lights.

Toner light keeps blinking

The inkjet uses ink, not toner. When the light is blinking it indicates something is wrong with one of the cartridges, such as can't find it, not installed, out of ink, improperly installed, printer has died. First thing to try is to disconnect the power (not just power off) for 5 - 10 minutes and reconnect. If that does not resolve it, inspect the cartridges and reinstall them. If you have another printer that uses the same cartridges, try the cartridge in it. if not, get another set of cartridges and install them. If none of these steps resolve the problem, chances are that the printer is the problem and is probably not worth spending additional time on it.

Printer problems

Scrap it. I suspect your 810C has the same problem as mine - it's buggered. I have done everything to address the blinking cartridge light but nothing works. I've come to the conclusion that it's a mechanical/electrical problem and that my 810C, which has worked pretty well, bar the odd tantrum, for many years now, has come to the end of its life. Very possibly its demise has been hastened by the use of remanufactured cartridges, a practice I will continue as long as the real McCoys are such a rip-off.
