Check the End of warranty date on both the cartridges.
Deskjet 882c printer does not support reserve mode printing.
Means, even if only cartridge is defective or expired the printer will not print with other cartridge which is fine.

Both the cartridges should in inwarranty and fine.
Shake the cartridges well
With the color and black cartridges touch a clean, slightly damp cloth (squeeze out excess water),
to the printer nozzle area on the print cartridge, to see if you can make the ink flow freely.

Be careful not to touch the nozzle area (with holes on it) on the cartridges.
Wipe the copper-colored electrical contacts with a clean distilled water or clean tap water and then with a dry lint-free cotton cloth
Also using a new swab, clean the electrical contacts inside the printer, in the carriage.

Install both the cartirdges in the printer, disconnect the printer from the computer and try to print a self test and diagnostic page

Running a sample page
Turn the printer on.
Press and hold the RESUME button until the printer starts printing.
Release the RESUME button.

Running a diagnostic test
Turn the printer on.
Press and hold the POWER button.
Press the RESUME button four times.
Release the POWER button.

My printer do not print why

Hello there,

Has this printer been working fine previously with your computer? If the printer is new, you should install the correct driver compatible for your computer's OS.

Make sure the printer is properly connected to the computer and that it gives you a steady green led light. If you think the print jobs are being queued, then you can Shutdown your printer along with the computer and unplug the printer's cable. Wait for like 5 minutes before restarting them. This should clear the memory and you can initiate another print job.

Should you need further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using FixYa. Merry Christmas.

Keep getting 10.00.03 supplies error, have tried turning the machine off and on several times.

10.00.03 - The printer cannot read or write to the yellow print cartridge memory tag.


Turn the printer off and then back on again.

If error returns, remove all print cartridges and turn off the printer.

Cold reset the printer:

Turn on the printer.

Watch the control panel.

When the memory starts counting, press and hold the green (Select) button.

Continue holding the green check button until the Ready, Data, and Attention lights flash once, and then stay on steady.

Release the check button when the Ready, Data, and Attention light are on steady.

The control panel will display SELECT LANGUAGE.

Press (Down Arrow) button once. The control panel will display COLD RESET.

Press (Select). The printer will perform a cold reset and then continue its power-on sequence.

Wait for the printer prompt to install each print cartridge.
This should return the machine to operating condition. If you still get the error, replace the yellow print cartridge.

Firmware corrupted? Only prints some random computer text

The printer is in line mode. Do the following to take it out of line mode:
Turn printer power off.
Hold the feed button while turning printer power on.
When the light starts flashing, release the feed button.
When the light starts flashing again, press and hold the feed button.
When the light turns steady amber, release the feed button.
When the light turns steady green, the mode is changed.
Verify the mode by printing and inspecting a status report.

This requires good timing and may take several tries. You'll know it worked if no labels are reeled out after you're done.
