Question about HP DeskJet 842c InkJet Printer
I have a blinking ink light even though I replaced the ink cartridge. First I tried Office Depot brand and then HP.
No response at all... I have disconnected power and usb connections multiple times.
My guess is that this is an issue regarding the contacts for the cartridge, if so what next?
The ink light flashes when the top cover is open...check the switch that tells the printer when the cover is closed.

Make sure both carts are ok usally there is black and colour, sometimes i've seen the spring where cartridge goes break loose, not ecomical to repair, cheaper to replace, modern world, 5 - 10 years ago we would fix but now labour is too high and replacement are too cheap. you could try a little metho and clean contacts on cart and machine
