Question about HP DeskJet 1220c InkJet Printer
In most cases unseating and reseating the cartridge in the unit to dislodge residue from the cartridge contacts can resolve the problem. If this does not immediately resolve the problem, continue the reseating process up to five times. Follow the instructions below. Unseating and reseating the cartridge Turn the unit on and open the lid or top cover. Remove the cartridges. Re-insert the cartridges. Close the unit's lid or top cover. Cycle the power to the device by turning the printer off for a few seconds. Turn the printer back on. Print a test page. If this does not solve the problem, proceed to the next section. Wiping the cartridge contacts Turn the unit on and open the lid or top cover. Remove the cartridges. Using a clean, dry lint-free cloth (a coffee filter works well), wipe the cartridge contacts, from the top to the bottom (see Figure 2). The contact area of the cartridge should be rubbed briskly to remove the waxy lubricant material from the gold contacts. The contacts inside the printer may also require cleaning.

If the problem persists, perform a hard reset as described in the next section.
