Re: hp printer

THis is probably a problem with your driver.  Look through your installed printers on your computer.  See if the HP 6940 says fax somewhere on it.  If so, make sure it's not set as your default.  Set the other one as your default.

HP Deskjet 6940. Carriage is stuck in park position. Won't move either automatically or manually. Is there some way of "unsticking " it??? Appears to be mechanicaly retarded

Sometimes you can reach under the printhead with a pencil or screwdriver tip and push back the cleaning assembly. That allows you to clean the cleaning assembly so it might not get stuck again. You need to find something solid to push on, directly under the print cartridges. You will hear the motor turning as you push gently.

Try double-clicking on the printer in the Printers and Faxes folder and clear any pending jobs. Turn off and disconnect the power cable from the printer for a few minutes to clear its buffer. Keep the paper removed from the tray during this process and only re-insert it after the printer has stopped attempting to print. When the spooler and buffer are cleared normal printing should resume.

HP Deskjet 6940 not printing after replacing ink cartridge

My HP Deskjet 6940 is not printing. The color (left) low ink light is dark and the black (right) low ink light is flashing. I replaced the black ink cartridge with a new one but the low ink light continues to flash. No tears/rips in the circuit strip and all the copper leads appear to be connected
