Assuming that you have the correct print drivers and the color is set correctly on your software. Then the issue is often caused by the ink drying and clogging the injectors. Open the lid and remove the ink cartridges, then unplug the printer. Then get a swab or Q tip and using bottled water (do not use tap water). Moisten the swab and wipe the areas on the printer where the ink cartridge contacts the printer. You should see ink on the swab. After you let it completely dry then place the cartridge back in and turn the printer back on. Try to print again. If it is still not printing with the correct colors then you could have a problem with the injector circuitry. At that point it is cheaper to buy a new printer. You can get refurbished ink jet Dell printers at Dell.com under outlet for usually $30-$40 and a one year warranty.

If you want to keep that 3820 going, you need to learn how to maintenance the gears under the service station every 6 months or so.
This is FYI and I wish I had known how to prevent this before it happened to me 3 times since 2002. Now I can prevent it, almmost no one can fix it.
Ink buildup in the internal service station causes the small poorly designed pusher cogs on two drive gears to snap off and the printer is instantly converted to junk.
HP was giving new printers out for this problem till Jan 06 or so as they realized it was a poor design.
I fixed one with parts from an electronically damaged unit, but usually the blinking lights and "won't print no matter what" problem are sheared gears. Parts are not available. Some people made metal gears (the only answer) on a very short run basis in Europe several years ago because people LOVE this printer.
Once you know the problem, it's simple to keep it from happening with some maintenance, but once they shear, it's over.
There was some kind of paper-clip fix that was solving the problem even with sheared gears, but I was never able to understand exactly how it was done. Needed a pic or two.
Otherwise a great printer, huge cartridges last a long time, great quality on photos too.
I have to keep mine running to have a happy wife.

HP doesn't have the drivers available for windows 7 cause its only in Beta and they won't have it until windows 7 becomes official and available in stores. The only chance would be if you go into the control panel and then add printers. See if in there it has your make and model of your printer. If it doesn't then try a printer that is similar and it might install it. If you still can't get it to install then you'll have to wait for HP to come out with a driver for windows 7.

hi,the reason why it most probaly comes with that error is that the driver is not meant for windows 7,so go on line check hp site, printer drivers and download.

If you are using a 32
bit version of Windows 7 you can add a driver using the following: go
to the Devices and Printers folder, Add a printer, Local printer,
LPT1: (or which ever parallel port the printer is connected to),
select the Deskjet 720c driver. You may need to click on the Windows
Update button if the driver does not show up initially in the list.
If you are using a 64 bit version of Windows 7 there is not a solution at this point, the supplied drivers have an issue.
