Remove the new black cartridge and then insert it once again. push down a little more firmly this time. If it still doesn't know you inserted the new ink unplug the printer wait two minutes and plug it in again.

Color Cartridge light is blinking.Cartridge is about one week old.Black one is working fine.


You need to say which printer. If it's just blinking on the printer you can ignore it. Did you recently print some photos or something that would have drained one of the colours down quickly? Many of us refill our cartridges, but the manufacturers don't recognize that so the printer keeps flashing the "ink low" message because it counts pages rather than actually measuring the amount of ink in the cartridge.

My canon mp160 printer has the color light blinking (I checked to make sure it has ink and the cartridge is in correctly) and won't print color. Thanks for any help.


Usually the cartridge is out of ink in which case get it refilled or it may be electrically failed in which case you will need to buy another cartridge.

If putting a refilled cartridge in the machine you will normally get some kind of error code, to clear this, press and hold the resume button (Black with red circle with an arrow head pointing towards you) for about 10 seconds then release it and usually you can print. The orange light will however stay illuminated or flashing.

I can't print.


“All lights blinking and printer not responding” is indicative of serious ink cartridge issue. Usually when this happens the printer fails to goes through the motions of the printing process, kind of stands still with indicator lights just blinking away. This could be as a result of either of these scenarios.
i. Ink cartridge has developed incompatibility or is incompatible
The Solution is to try an older/another cartridge (doesn’t matter if ink is finished. You must replace cartridge one at a time). If lights stop blinking it confirms that your cartridge has become incompatible or developed incompatibility. Also if your printer is the type that can work with only one cartridge, remove one after the other (closing back the lid/cover) to determine which in the set (black or color) has become incompatible. At the instance the incompatible one is removed and you close the lid, the blinking will stop (for printers that can print with one ink cartridge only). Just replace the incompatible one and start printing again. In most cases the issue is always with one cartridge. But if both are affected, you have to replace both. Because of this type of problem, always keep used cartridges somewhere safe; they come in handy for this type of troubleshooting.
ii. The Cartridge electronic panel is dirty
The electronic panel on the cartridge that makes contact with the cartridge carrier inside the printer is dirty and needs cleaning. This electronic panel is front part of the cartridge with copper “dots”.
The Solution is to try to clean this panel with a piece of folded tissue paper soaked in a bit of methylated spirit. Also try to clean the area in the cartridge carrier/holder that makes contact with the cartridge’s electronic panel (Usually this is more difficult). If you cannot reach it with your fingers, use a stick or something with tissue wrapped around it. Allow to dry well and return the cartridges, close the cover. The blinking should stop if the electronic panel is the issue. Once the blinking stops the printer will print.

C3150 print cartridge


  • Remove the cartridges.
  • Turn off the printer.
  • If the cartridges are leaking, put the print head on some tissue, so it can extract the excess ink. With a dry cloth, clean your scanner. Look inside the printer. If there is ink in there too, clean it. Use a lot of tissue or toilet paper. Might put some gloves on too.
  • When you make sure that the cartridges are not leaking anymore, gently wipe the electric contacts on them, and clean the ones on the cartridge carrier.
  • Turn the printer on.
  • Try printing.
  • If the cartridge light keeps flashing:
  1. If a computer message indicates a specific cartridge, that is the problem cartridge.
  2. If there is no computer message, look at the Start Copy lights - if the Black Start Copy light is blinking, the cartridge on the right is the problem cartridge.
  3. If the Color Start Copy light is blinking, the cartridge on the left is the problem cartridge.
If you find out which cartridge is the problem, you will need to replace it.
Unfortunately, the ink that has leaked inside, might have damaged your printer.

HP 932 RED LIGHT STAYS ON


The light you describe is the ink light.
When that light is blinking, try this.

Turn on the printer. Open the front cover and look at the carrier for the ink cartridges. There is a white arrow right above the latch for the color cartridge.
Once the carrier stops moving, the white arrow should be pointing to a symbol which represents the problem (the reason the light is blinking.) Examples are low ink black, low ink color, sick black ( replace ) , sick color ( replace ).

IF you have just replaced your black cartridge, you might need to replace your color cartridge too.
This printer will not work without both ink cartridges installed and full.
You cant print with a full black and an empty color cartridge unfortunately, even if you only want to print black.

Hope this helps!

Ink cartridge light keeps blinking


you need to print only in black if that is all the ink you have, and also you need to remove the color cartridge as it still registers in the printer as able to be used, although it is empty or near so. Did you remove the tape over the print head fron the new ink cartridge? Do a print head alignment, or use the toolbox icon to tell the printer that you just replaced the cartridge. Some HP models chip the ink cartridges so even a refill wont register as a full tank and the printer wont print. chip needs to be reset (difficult) or just replaced with a new cartridge.

HP DESKJET 1180C


HP Deskjet 1180c and1220c Professional Series Printer and HP Deskjet 9300 and 1280 Printer - Troubleshooting a Blinking Print Cartridge Light Introduction The Print Cartridge light continues to blink with both cartridges properly installed and the Access Cover (also known as the top cover or lid) closed. Instructions The blinking Print Cartridge light may be caused by a faulty cartridge, the plastic case of the printer being dislodged or slightly out of position (which prevents the Access Cover from seating properly), the Access Cover sensor (also known as the top cover sensor or lid sensor), or by the actuator on the Access Cover. Follow the steps below to resolve the issue.
  1. With the printer turned on, open the Access Cover. The carriage will move out of the capping station and stop at one of the cartridge status icons located inside the printer under the Access Cover. The yellow arrow on top of the carriage will point to one of the cartridge status icons to indicate a good, empty, or faulty cartridge. See Figure 1 below.
    1. If the carriage stops in the cartridge’s OK position, indicated by the happy face in Figure 1, continue with Step 2.
    2. If a problem is indicated with one of the cartridges, remove the cartridge and verify that the cartridge part number is correct. The black cartridge part number is 51645A and the color cartridge part number is C6578A or C6578D.
    3. If the cartridge part number is correct, clean the electrical contacts on the cartridge with a soft, lint-free cloth. Do not touch or wipe the nozzle plate.
    4. If a faulty cartridge is still indicated after verifying the cartridge part number and cleaning the contacts on the cartridge, replace the cartridge.
    5. After replacing the cartridge, turn off and then turn on the printer to clear the cartridge error from the printer's memory. If the cartridge error cannot be cleared, the printer will require repair. If the carriage stops in the cartridge’s OK position, indicated by the happy-face in Figure 1, continue with Step 2. NOTE: The printer checks the status of both print cartridges before printing. Both the black and color cartridge must be functional and installed in the printer in order to print.
    Figure 1: Cartridge status icons c00001225.jpg Icon/Drawing Problem identified by the symbol Solution c00001226.jpg The color cartridge is missing, improperly installed, defective, or the wrong print cartridge is installed. 1. If there is no color cartridge in the cartridge cradle, insert a color cartridge.

    2. If there is a color cartridge in the cradle, remove the color cartridge and firmly reinsert it.

    3. Check to make sure the color cartridge is appropriate for the printer.

    4. If the problem persists, replace the color cartridge. c00001227.jpg The black cartridge is missing, improperly installed, the wrong print cartridge, or is defective. 1. If there is no black cartridge in the cartridge cradle, insert a black cartridge.

    2. If there is a black cartridge in the cradle, remove the black cartridge and firmly reinsert it.

    3. Check to make sure the black cartridge is appropriate for the printer.

    4. If the problem persists, replace the black cartridge. c00001228.jpg The color print cartridge is running low on ink. Replace the color print cartridge with a new color print cartridge. c00001229.jpg The black print cartridge is running low on ink. Replace the black print cartridge with a new black print cartridge. c00001230.jpg None. The print cartridges are working correctly. None. The print cartridges are working correctly.
  2. Close the Access Cover and wait for the printer to initialize. If the Print Cartridge light is still blinking, remove the Access Cover by following the steps below:
    1. Open the Access Cover and hold it open.
    2. Dislodge the Access Cover from the hinges with a sharp blow to the hinge area of the Access Cover and then remove the Access Cover.
  3. Install the Access Cover by following the steps below:
    1. Align the hinges on the Access Cover with the hinge pins on the printer.
    2. Push down firmly on the Access Cover until the hinges snap into position.
  4. Close the top cover and wait for the printer to initialize. If the Print Cartridge light is still blinking, the printer case may be dislodged or slightly out of position. To restore the printer case to the proper position, squeeze the printer by applying pressure to the front and back pressure points shown in Figure 2. Figure 2: Pressure points c00006497.jpg Firmly squeeze the pressure points on the printer case as shown in Figure 3. If the Print Cartridge light continues to blink, continue with step 5. Figure 3: Squeezing the pressure points c00006498.jpg
  5. If the Print Cartridge light is still blinking, push down firmly on the center of the Access Cover (the extra pressure may engage the sensor). If the Print Cartridge light quits blinking, remove the pressure from the Access Cover to see if the Print Cartridge light starts blinking again. Re-apply the pressure to the center of the Access Cover to see if the Print Cartridge light stops blinking again.
    1. If the Print Cartridge light quits blinking with pressure applied, the Access Cover is faulty and should be replaced.
    2. If the Print Cartridge light continues to blink even with pressure applied, the Access Cover sensor may be faulty and the printer will require repair.

HP Deskjet 1220C cartridge recognition problem


This happens when the connections on the cartridge get old. Especially when you refill or buy non HP Cartridges, try buying brand new hp cartridges and you might be able to get a couple refill out of them before this happens again.
