Question about HP DeskJet 1220c/ps InkJet Printer

1 Answer

When I power up my HP 1220C printer, the power light goes on, it makes some noises and turns the drive rollers. Nothing else - the cartridges stay over to the far right. Then the feed rollers stop and the same weird noises, then silence and both the power and resume lights flash continuously. At this point nothing works - no diagnostics, nothing. Please help! (When I lift the lid, the cartridges don't move.) Thanks.

    The problem was a "stuck carriage", which I fixed by forcefully "unsticking" it. All's now well. Thanks.

Hp deskjet 882c printer carriage is stuck


Hi first of all you need to make sure that everything is in good shape on the carriage and the cartridge holder,

also check if you have any broken plastic pieces in the printer.

you mentioned the reset a well
was it a partial or a semi full reset

another thing which we can try is
1>take out both the cartridges
2> unplug the power cable while the printer is on
3>press the power button for 30 sec to remove the static
3>replug the power
now let the printer lights blink prompting you to put the cartridges
4>put the black cartridge first
some Hp printers work on single cartridges as well.
5>see if you hear the same grinding noise again
6>try cleaning the rollers with a little damp lint free cloth
7>try putting the color cartridge
make sure that the cartridges snap inside properly.
8>see if the problem persists

sorry I got it, usually you may try:
1) check all paper road no paper inside include the area betweem input tray and cartridge unit the area wetween cartridge and fuser unit and output tray.
2) check 4 sensor input sensor near the input tray roller, marging sensor between input roller and cartridge unit, cartridge sensor at oneside of cartridge unit body, fuser sensor near fuser roller. usually need to clean or adjustment the position.
3) check input roller and cartridge unit and fuser unit at running condition when the power on.
anyone nothing running show error light blink, also show the hardware trouble if all sensors are normal.

Not working


This maybe down to a faulty cartridge replace cartridges and then retry. You can try the following to obtain a test sheet.

  • Turn on printer
  • Hold power button down (While printer is on)
  • Press the paper feed button once
  • Release both buttons
This will printout a test sheet but I really do think that it is a faulty cartridge problem.

Hope I could help
Thanks J

HP 1220c problem


Did you try both cartridges? Sometimes a fried circuit on the color cartridge will cause a out of ink on the black even when the black is new. Double check that you are using the correct cartridge for the printer. and look at the copper/gold contacts in the printer where the cartridge goes. look for dried ink or tears. Clean with a Q-tip dipped in water. CAREFULLY. If it's torn.... enjoy your trip to walmart.

HP Deskjet 1220C cartridge recognition problem


This happens when the connections on the cartridge get old. Especially when you refill or buy non HP Cartridges, try buying brand new hp cartridges and you might be able to get a couple refill out of them before this happens again.
