Won't Print, Says "Shutting Down" and on/off switch blinking

The Printer was printing fine last night. Then I received a message to change the Black Ink Cartridge, which I did. I printed at least 15 or 20
more pages and then it just stopped. It seemed like it was not getting
the message from the computer to the Printer.

Then the on/off switch started blinking. If I push it or hold it in nothing happens. In the blue screen it has the hp logo and at the bottom it says - "Shutting Down", however nothing happens. It seems to have locked up.

My suggestion: Don't buy HP. I have the same region coding problem. All I want to do is buy HP ink, put it in my HP printer and print stuff. Too hard. I've wasted 30 pounds on ink and another 30 pounds on "support" phone calls to HP. Hopeless. I will never buy HP again. Waste of time and money.

SOURCE: Changed ink cartrigde and printer no longer printing.

microsoft logo is in colour and so its printing while everything else on test page is black so its not printing. the problem is common.you need to do automatic deep cleaning for the ink flow to start once you install new cartridges.go to printer maintanance option and click the option deep cleaning .it will pull out the ink in printer head and it will start working.sometimes also requires cleaning twice. thanks and do not forget to accept the solution.

Hi Allan

BROTHER DCP-165C BLACK INK NOZZLE BLOCKAGE CLEANING

If your printer is under warranty then take it to a Brother Service Center for Print Head Maintenance.

If not and you are technically minded and/or adventurous, then you could try to clear the likely cause of this fault (potential blocked micro-nozzles on the print head) yourself.

Remove all the cartridges, wrap them in clingwrap/clingfilm and then place them (upside down) on an old newspaper to minimize accidental leakage > remove the print head (a small square, gold, patterned contact plate sitting at the back of the cartridge compartment) > immerse the print head in a solvent for 24 hours (sometimes longer). Below is a webpage showing you how to create, handle, store, use your own solvent recipe to and safely and responsibly dispose of used solvent:

http://www.ehow.com/how_6614390_homemade-solvent-clean-print-head.html

Remove and blow dry the print head until completely dry > reinstall print head > reinstall cartridges > repeat head cleaning and test print procedures again.

For the future, either with this or any other printer, please remember these tiny micro-nozzles can very easily become blocked with dried ink. You can protect against this by always using good quality ink, printing regularly to keep ink flowing through the system (including the odd unnecessary test print, if necessary), replacing empty cartridges without delay, not allowing drying air to dry ink residue in the micro-nozzles by never leaving a cartridge space empty for more than the few seconds it takes to change a cartridge, always fully prepare, unpack, unclip and unpeel the new cartridge before removing the empty one, try to avoid being distracted while changing cartridges (so easy to forget and leave a cartridge space empty and the cartridge bay open).

Please don't hesitate to ask for more help if you need it.

I hope this helps.

Blinking green light


Try disconnecting the computer from the printer and shutting it down by removing the power cord and then also shut down the computer for a minute or so and then reboot it and check in "Printers" and see if it has anything waiting to be printed and if so clear out the queue. Flashing green light indicates that the printer is receiving data from the computer and/or printing so you shut it all down and cold reboot to clear out the computer confusion in both the computer and the printer.

MX700 printer does not print in black


you have a clogged jet and ink has dried inside i reckon... the only other thing it could be is the message from the logic board (its motherboard) inside printer isnt getting to the print head or print head itself has malfunctioned - i would suggest to fix but it would probably be cheaper to buy a new one but dont give up.... sometimes they do work if you print pages even tho there is no flow and the heat may dislodge blockage if there is one... But heres a video that may help...

Quicken 2008 won't print anything in reports in black


You need to replace the Black cartridge, as it appears the colour one is fine. Look in the printer options on your PC for a display of ink levels, and you'll probably find the black down to zero. If you've used generic cartridges, not genuine HP, you may find the printer can't actually read the ink levels.

When I turn my printer on it says that the type of print head is incorrect and to install a new one. I have never changed my print head and was working fine last week. I took the ink cartridges out and...


Hello.
Sometimes this is caused by the chip on the black cartridge. I know it sounds unusual but this chip is called the "master" and it identifies the series of cartridges and head to a table built into the printer. if a error is detected it can cause the message you are receiving.
If you have already removed the head, checked the contacts and replaced the cartridges, then try this link below. it may help re-set the printer. http://www.fixya.com/support/r9017204-resetting_ink_waste_absorber_error I hope this helps

Canon ip90 4 blinks error


4 blinks is a purge unit error, that's the device that the printhead parks on on the right. Could be just a paper scrap inside, or the gears are worn out. The replacement includes the entire print engine and costs more than a new printer to replace.

Center of page is not printing black


I changed out our black photoconductor unit #165 and it solved the problem. Even though the error message did not say that the photoconductor needed changed out, it had been eight months since the last replacement. I hope this helps!

HP 5650 deskjet printer


Did you or one of your users have a paper jam recently and force the jam out of the printer? Because we've had a few 5650's do this after a jam. About 66% of the time this fixed it...

  • Removing the ink, unplugging the printer, moving the print head to the half way point, and starting the printer. If it resets at that point and lets you put the ink in, your usually gold. If it just stops and blinks again your not.

That said, I'm actually taking one apart that wasn't fixable this way right now. I think the problem may be something related to not recognizing if the cover is up/down, but still can't see why it happens or how that it is effected by the jam.
