    Clean the cartridge and carriage electrical contacts with a cotton swab and alcohol. Could be that there is a tiny bit of dust in either place that is making the printer act up.

My printer will only print when both cartridges are installed, regardless of what I am printing.

New ink...red blinking light will not go off


That is a carriage stall error.

It is typically caused by a dirty or disconnected encoder strip.

It can also be caused by the service station.

Power on your 5150 with the cover open and describe what it does, listen to it too.

HP Deskjet 5740 printer both orange lights are blinking and wont print


  • I replaced both carts with HP brand, no joy.
  • I cleaned the cart/printer connections, no joy.
An interesting aside is that if one or the other cart is removed, the appropriate LED goes out and the other blinks. At least some of the sensing circuitry sees the cart.

Anyone have a schematic of the cart/printer electronics?

HP Deskjet 5940 reversed ink cartridges


It is best for you to take time to a Hp Center. You will damage the cart if you try to take them out. Hp service center has special tools which they use to take the cart out. If you are really good to them they will even do it free for you. It will not take more than 10 mins for the job.

Thanks

HP Deskjet 950C - trouble loading ink cartridges


1st thing would be to remove the cartridge & check for any damage to the copper contacts as these are what tell the printer that a new cart has been installed. Next make sure you removed the tape covering the nozzles (I've done this before & boy do you feel silly).

If this all looks OK then pull the power out while the cart is still not fitted (this will fully reset the printer).

Once it comes back up, try fitting the cart again also checking that the contacts in the cartridge holder are not damaged/dirty.

This should sort the problem

Cheers
