    Thanks for the post!

    Absolutely nothing is flashing. The regular on/off light is on as usual. There is a long pause and then i get the message that it is out of paper. It is in good condition and has suddenly started doing this...

Hi, the HP printers tell you what's wrong by using the lights on the front. Depending on which lights are on/flashing/off will give a different fix.
If you can let me know the sequence of lights (i.e. resume light blinking plus cartridge light on etc).

    OK then, it seems that the printer doesn't think there is a problem (other than being out of paper).

    The 1st thing to do is a reset of the printer, you do this by pulling the power cord out of the back of the printer, leave it 30 seconds or so then put it back in.

    Once you have done this remove all the paper that is in the tray & check that none of it is damaged (it can sometimes get ripped or curled when trying to feed). Put back in about 15 sheets of clean undamaged paper & slide the paper guide against the edge of the paper - but not too tight.

    Go into the properties of the printer & check the paper size is correct for the paper you are using (I think this is on the Paper/Quality tab.

    Try printing something again.

    If this still fails then the only other thing to do is clean the paper feed rollers with a cotton bud & water, there are usually 2 sets that will need to be cleaned.

    Good luck!

Indicator light reflects no paper, but after paper inserted the light continues to flash and the printer won't work

if you inserted the paper in your printer and you still having the error so this is not a paper error,

check is your cartridge carriage moving or not when you turn on the printer,
if the cartridge carriage not moving so this is might be the error of cartridges or cartridge carriage is not working,
try to remove your printer cartridge and clean it and if the error keep coming you need to take your printer to any local repair center. because its not a user service part.

Thank you for using Fixya

HP Deskjet 940c keeps saying it's out of paper, won't print

I have the same problem. In the error message box is a Cancel button.
If I don't click the Cancel then the print goes through just fine and I click Cancel when the print is finished.

Good for you for being on the internet and posting the question! The yellow light usually means, paper, ink or a jam. If it's got paper and ink, check for jams and even power cycle it and see if that helps. And try printing, it may just be reporting low ink. Good luck!
