Ink indicator keeps on blinking even with new ink cartridge.

The blinking ink light means that the printer does not recognize one of the ink cartridges. Power the printer off, pull out the power cord, wait for awhile, replug and turn the printer on. If the light no longer blinks, ok. If not, try installing another cartridge pair if you have them available - even if they are old used ones. If the ink light continues to blink with different cartridges or if you don't have any different cartridges, old or new, you have a dilemma. Do you want a new printer or do you want to continue to chase this problem. To chase this problem, get new cartridges and install them (half the price of a new printer). If that works your set, but if not you need to have your printer serviced which is doubtful that it is worthwhile doing so.

Read the onscreen error message explaining the problem and follow its solution. If no error message appears, go to the Maintenance section in the Printer Assistant and click any of the four main buttons. This will prompt the software to check the status of the printer and the error message should then appear. The following table lists possible causes and what to do to correct the problem.

    Inserted new light still on

    Try re-seating the ink cartridges. A lot of times, the electrical contacts on HP's ink cartridges do not make a solid connection.
