for this you can unplug color cartridge and use printer if your query remains then use a empty color ink cartridge.

After my printer hp desktop 3940 prints it changes the status from ready to no toner and will not print again



I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

My HP printer's light blinks, but it doesn't print.


two things to consider.
1. If the blinking is fast (like more than two blinks per second) then the printer is damaged. Either the main controller board is fried or the carriage/ink controller is damaged.
2. if the blinking is slow ( 1 blink per second) this means that either of your cartridges is busted. remove the black cartridge then close the top cover. If the blinking stops, then the black ink is the culprit. If not, replace the black then remove the other cartridge. THis means that one of your cartridge needs to be replaced.

Printer cartridge container doesn't stop in the middle


It appears that the injection may have been lethal, it was still using the ink that it carries in its tubes then it mixed with the injection and is now blocked \ faulty. To repair it you could try getting a new set of HP inks.
