The cartrdges contacts are well, the ink it is clogged in the printheads, take out the cartridges, put them in a wet towelwith windows cleaner liquid, just the head height, let rest 12 hours, clean and dry the heads and try to print, sometimes need a second time on liquid. good luck

Same problem here: i replaced the cartridges carriage with another one 100% operational and it does exactly the same thing as if i never made any replacement. I'm starting to think it's the controlling card, and if it is so, i'll throw the printer in the trash.

When i turn on the printer, it starts normally, it detects both ink cartridges, it makes the inicial setup and remains in idle condition so i can print on it.

But when i send a test page, it makes as if it is actually printing, but no ink comes out of the cartridges, and the same cartridges works perfectly fine on another printer.

I have an hp deskjet 940c. the colored ink is out but there is plenty of black ink however the ink light is flashing and it wont print. do I need to replace the colored ink in order to print something or...


You will need to replace the empty color cartridge to get the flashing to stop.

However you should still be able to print in BW. Check that the applications you are running are set to
BW and not color in the configuration menu. That should permit you to print in BW only.

Hp deskjet 1220c It only prints in red. I thought it was that the black cartridge was empty so I changed it. But the problem persists Any ideas?


If the printer has not been used for awhile, ink may have dried on the heads. Try cleaning the heads a few times. Then see if you can print solid blocks of each color. If they show up but have lines in them the heads will need to be cleaned again until they show solid.

Printing with double lines and blurry on left side of the page


Print cartridge
When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.
Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.
1. Open the top cover of the printer.
2. Remove the print cartridges.
3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth. Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.
5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.
6. Close the top cover.
7. Try printing again.
If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .

Color printing


Hi I take it that you have removed the blue tape that is over the cartridge when you install it? If you have are they original or refills if refills change for an original.

If you have done the above then remove the ink cartridge and with soft cloth wipe clean the gold contacts on the cartridge and also on the carriage.

When you have done the above try printing again if still not printing then check the following.
  • Goto Start Printers and Faxes
  • Right hand click on the printer Icon
  • Select "Printing Preferences"
  • Make sure that you are set to color
  • Close window the Right hand click on Icon again
  • Select Properties
  • Click on Print test page
  • This should not print in color if color was selected in printing preferences.
I do hope this works for you
Thanks J

HP 1220c problem


Did you try both cartridges? Sometimes a fried circuit on the color cartridge will cause a out of ink on the black even when the black is new. Double check that you are using the correct cartridge for the printer. and look at the copper/gold contacts in the printer where the cartridge goes. look for dried ink or tears. Clean with a Q-tip dipped in water. CAREFULLY. If it's torn.... enjoy your trip to walmart.
