Check chip connnector at ink tank and at head carriage. It's may be dirty. Check status monitor? what ink tank not recognized. Press ink light (1-4 times) depends on number ink tank not recognized, press 1 time again, carriage will move co replacement position, unplug and plu again all ink tank, press ink light 1 more.

Door ajar light keeps coming on when door is closed tightly


The problem is a dirty switch. use a can of wd-40 or equivalent and spray the door latch heavily. Next hold up on the door handle and work the latching mechanism back and forth really fast. Next repeat the process 2 or 3 times. It only takes a few minutes and your door latch sensor will be working like new again.

Everytime I change the cyan cartridge I get a message that cartridge is missing or damaged. In the past I've tried everything from the solution center and manual and problem has gone away even though I...


Make sure that the cartridges sit in the correct slots. Match the shape and color of the icon on the cartridge with the slot that has the same shape and color icon.

Press down on any cartridges that you find sticking up. They should snap down into place.

If a cartridge does not snap into place, you might need to readjust the cartridge tab.

Remove the catridge and gently bend the tab away from the cartridge. Be careful not to bend the tab too much

Reinstall the cartridge into its appropriate slot until it snaps into place and seats firmly in the slot.

Check if the issue was resolved

If not, make sure that the carriage latch is closed. The latch is located athe right side of the inks. Its the color blue latch beside the black cartridge.

If its still giving the same error message. Try cleaning the electrical contacts of the cartridges.

IF this did not resolve your issue, process a repair for the printer.

Removing and Installing Print Cartridges


this steps might help you

Step 1: Open the printer WARNING: If the HP Deskjet printer is turned off when the print-cartridge access door is lifted to access the print cartridges, the printer will not release the cartridges for changing. Damage may occur to the HP Deskjet printer if the print cartridges are not docked safely on the right side when you try to remove them. Push the scraper bar gently with your finger if it is blocking the cartridges, then press the Power button.
  1. Turn on the printer. Press the Power button if it is not lit.
  2. Open the printer cover, then wait until the print cartridge cradle moves to the right side of the printer and is idle and silent.
Step 2 - Remove old cartridges
  1. Press down lightly on top of the cartridge latch.
  2. Pull out the bottom of the latch to unhook it.
  3. Slide the cartridge out.
Step three: Use a cartridge protector If you are temporarily removing a working cartridge (for instance, removing a Black cartridge in order to install a Photo cartridge), put it in a cartridge protector. Cartridge protectors come with Photo cartridges.

Step 4 - Make sure the new cartridges are compatible Which cartridges you use depends on your country or region. To check the cartridge compatibility for your product, click this link, HP SureSupply . If your language or country does not display next to the globe icon (c01906983.gif ) select your language and location.Step 5 - Install the new cartridges If you are installing a new print cartridge, remove the protective tape.
CAUTION: Do not attempt to remove the copper strip.
Hold the print cartridge so the nozzles are down and the contacts face toward the printer, then slide the cartridge into the carriage.
Cartridges marked with a triangle go into the left carriage slot.
Cartridges marked with a square or pentagon go into the right carriage slot.
Push down on the print cartridge latch until it snaps closed.

  1. Close the printer cover.
Print cartridge maintenance After removing the print cartridges from the printer, it is necessary to follow basic care and maintenance guidelines to keep them from drying out. The following guidelines will help maintain HP inkjet print cartridges and ensure consistent print quality.

Do not reattach the plastic tape that covered the ink nozzles since this can damage the nozzles.

Store the print cartridge(s) in a print cartridge protector or airtight plastic container. If the cartridge is stored in an airtight plastic container, make sure the nozzles face down and are not in contact with the container. Do not use plastic bags: this may damage the print crtridges.

Placing a moist paper towel in the airtight container may help to keep the cartridges from drying out.

A print cartridge protector is provided with the photo print cartridge.
To insert the cartridge into this protector, slide the cartridge at a slight angle into the protector and snap it securely in place.

To remove the cartridge, press down and back on the top of the protector to release the cartridge. Slide the cartridge out of the protector.

Do not drop the print cartridge since it could be damaged.

After installing new ink cartrages the two red lights keep flashing and I can't check the cartrages to see if they are seated properly


Do you have a message on your screen ??? Try printing a document or opening the print manager and see the error message - that looks like a maintenance error when your pads need to be serviced after a set number of prints.

Press the button to set the carriage in ink change position - while your carriage is in the ink change position UNPLUG YOUR PRINTER.

ONce printer unplugged from electrical wall socket - remove all carts, and then place them back one by one making sure you use the right color for the right slot - make sure they snap in securely, close the latch.

Now plug in your printer and wait for the initialization process and see if this works....

If you still get the blinking lights, you will need to locate the error message - your printer pad counter has reached its maximum and it needs to be serviced and reset.

There are reset software out there, but you need to change the pads or divert the tube to a tank outside your printer.

IDS failure, call HP message comes up


Hope this helps you. This error is caused by either a correct or incorrect detection of air in the manifold. The steps below will clear the error condition, which should solve the problem if it is caused by an incorrect detection of air. If there really is air in the manifold, however, this procedure will not solve the problem and the printer will have to be serviced. Step 1 - Remove all printheads CAUTION: Do not touch the printhead tower. Do not remove the printhead handle. Keep printheads out of the reach of children. Figure 1: HP 14 printhead c00042423.jpg 1 - Handle 2 - Tower
  1. Make sure the unit is plugged in and the power is turned on.
  2. Open the print carriage access door by lifting the handle until the door locks in place. The print carriage moves to the center.
  3. Wait two or three seconds, then unplug the power cord.
  4. Open the printhead latch. See the illustration below. Figure 2: Open the printhead latch c00042424.jpg
  5. Remove each problem printhead by lifting the printhead handle and pulling up. See the illustration below. Figure 3: Remove the printhead c00042425.jpg
Step 2 - Reset the internal error state NOTE: This step must be performed before the printheads are re-installed.
  1. Close the printhead chute.
  2. Close the access door.
  3. Plug the power cord back in.
  4. Turn on the power. The front panel should read No Printhead. Will damage Product. Insert [color name] [icon] printhead now . NOTE: The carriage may make a grinding noise when you turn the power on. This noise is normal.
  5. Open the print carriage access door by lifting the handle until the door locks in place. The print carriage moves to the center.
  6. Wait two or three seconds, then unplug the power cord.
  7. Open the printhead latch.
Before re-inserting the printheads, make sure all the electrical contacts have had at least five minutes to dry. Step 3 - Insert the printheads
  1. Place each printhead in its slot in the printhead carriage. The colored shape on the top of the printhead should match the colored shape on the proper slot on the printhead carriage.
  2. Press down firmly and evenly on both the front and back of the printhead, as shown in the illustration below. Proper seating is essential to making good electrical contact.
Figure 4: Seat the printhead c00042431.jpg Step 4 - Close and check the printer
  1. Close the printhead carriage latch and make sure the loops catch the hooks. See the illustration below. Figure 5: Loops catch hooks c00042432.jpg
  2. Snap the latch into place.
  3. Plug in the power cord.
  4. Close the print carriage access door.
  5. Turn on the power.
  6. If the error clears, a message to align the printheads may appear on the HP Officejet D and HP Officejet 7100. Press Enter to align. If the error persists contact HP. Printhead replacement will not resolve this problem - the printer will have to be serviced.
