Question about Apple HP DeskJet 3820 InkJet Printer
Have tried everything but do not get a printed page, new cartridges, paper is proper size, prints blank pages one after another without stopping. Help
This printer is 13 years old. I am a fan of keeping things around, and those cartridges for $3 arent bad, but its not the best on the environment, and considering printers of this decade print faster, have better resolution and are capable of archival prints.
It's really worth it.
Hope this helps.

Hi I think that you will need to clean the gold dots on the printer carriage or if not done so remove the blue tape from the cartridge or if you are trying to use refills install some originals as this may help.
Hope this helps'

'power button blinking without taking a paper to copy' usually means paper jam or no ink error.
First ensure you have no paper jam and you just replaced both ink cartridges.
If the printer still does not print, or does not print colors or black ink, then the ink must have dried up on printer head/nozzles.
You can try using clean nozzles option from hp printer software several times, and see if this fixes the problem. If it does not you will need to physically clean printer heads inside with solvent and cotton. To do this you need to disassemble part of the printer.
Having same work done in a service centre should cost around 50 euros.
HP DeskJet 3820 InkJet is not an expensive printer, if you cannot fix it with a clean head / nozzles from software you may also consider buying a new one for slightly more than the price of a cartridge change.

I've tried everything before for months... unplugging, new cartridges, servicing, etc. I've always avoided jarring an electronic item, but hitting the front fixed it! A couple of open-palmed smacks above the paper drawer, and it printed this very page. Apparently, sometimes the cover over the laser sticks shut after replacing the print cartridge, or removing a paper jam. Sounds crazy, but smack it!

SOURCE: I have an HP 840c
I have the same printer and I've suffered this problem before,
I solved mine by replacing the ink cartridge
I used to clean the head using a smooth piece of cloth and hot water " real hot water"
that used to solve the proplem periodically and when I replaced the couple of cartridges the problem was solved totally.
If this did not work for you then try to replce the cartridge capint it selfe
if this did not work for you then try to replace the main board 'the mother board"
if this did not work for you then try to replace the whole printer.
if this did not work for you then try to replace the computer itself
if this did not work for you then try to replace the place you live in
if this did not work for you then try to replace the planet.
and good luck.

According to your problem you can't print properly with your printer.
First check your printer cartridge is not blank. If any cartridge is blank then it may happens.
clear the cartridge head.
Cartridge may need alignment. Go to the printer preferences and select the Ink cartridge alignment.
You can reinstall the driver also.
Use dry and proper size of paper which is supported by the printer.
