Question about HP 5850 COLOR INJET PRINTER C8975A ($50 MAIL-IN 7/15~ 9/15/04 must also buy a qualifying wire...

1 Answer

My HP 5850 isn't printing

Good day.  The yellow teardrop-shaped icon flashes. When I press it, the flashing switches to the down arrow.  Meanwhile, the printer icon on my dock is nervous, jumping up and down like a hungry dog. Without a manual, I haven't been able to right what seems to be a simple problem. Thanks in advance.

The teardrop shape is meant to signify ink, generally it means you are out of ink.

Teardrop shaped light flashing on hp 5650


Hello Sgaetjens,

The tear drop shape LED is called the print catridge LED indicator. If you do see this light flashing it means that there is an issue with one or both of the cartridges. This issue can occur for the following reasons:
  • One or both cartridges might be incompatible with the product.
  • One or both cartridges might be improperly inserted.
  • The borderless printing settings require adjustments.
For the first,two I suggest that you verify that it is indeed HP original cartridge and not just replacement ones that you can purchase anywhere. Remove and reseat the ink cartridges carefully. With regards to borderless printing, go to Control Panel and then Printers and open up your HP Printer and then check the properties and defaults. Normally it is under Printing Shortcuts where you could find Borderless Printing.

How to find ink levels in hp932c printer


Print Cartridge Status The Print Cartridge Status Light flashes when one or both of your print cartridges are low on ink, improperly installed, or malfunctioning. It will also flash if you are trying to use the wrong print cartridge type. If the problem is low ink, the light will stop flashing when you open the top cover. For any other print cartridge-related problem, the Print Cartridge Status Light will continue to flash. To check the status of your print cartridges, open the printer's top cover. The yellow arrow on the print cartridge cradle aligns with one of five Print Cartridge Status icons.

My printer isn't printing, the teardrop button is flashing on and off and the down arrow button is flashing on and off. Does this just mean I am out of ink?


yes, you don't have ink. you can refill your cartridge by your own or you can go to an expert. take care that the colour number of your cartridge to be the same with the ink you buy.

Printer stopped printing; amber teardrop is flashing; no paper jam; cartridges should not be empty. Shouldn't there be a notice of low ink before it just stops printing? Or, the printed pages be faint? All...


The top access door on the printer might be open, or there might be something wrong with the print cartridge.
  1. Check to make sure that the top access door is firmly closed.
  2. If the light continues to blink, open the top access door. When the top access door opens, the print carriage moves so the yellow arrow on top of the print carriage points to a drawing of a cartridge inside the cover. Each drawing describes a symptom.

How do i get my flash to turn back on


Hi! To turn On the flash you just need to press the flash button on the top of the camera., Flash button is like a down arrow or lightning icon., make sure that the flash symbol is set to A -icon or eye- icon or may be a down arrow symbol., if you see on your LCD a circle icon with a down arrow it means your flash is off., Gudluck!
