When you plug your printer into the computer, what does the computer say?

Count how many flashes you are getting. Look in your owners manual to see what it says for that number of flashes.

Prints test copy every time I switch it on.


All right so you are getting print test copy every time you turn on or switch on your printer. You can follow the following steps to fix this issue:-

1.. Turn off the printer and wait 10 seconds. Turn it on again

2. Let the printer print the test page.

3. After the test page is printed, disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer to your computer. DO NOT turn off the printer while disconnecting the USB cable.

4. Place the test page on the scanner glass and press the SCAN button on the printer. The ON light will flash as the page is being scanned.

5. Remove the test page when the ON light is steady.

6. Finally, turn off the printer and wait another 10 seconds. Then turn it on again. No more printing test pages! Yay!

(You may now reconnect the printer to your computer via the USB cable.)

let me know if it fix this issue and helpful to you.

HP 6940 print head jammed.resume light flashing


Welcome to FixYa!

Usually print head/carriage jam is caused by paper jams or previously cleared out paper jams that left a small torn paper inside the printer.

Turn off the printer by pressing and releasing the power button.
After the printer turns off, press the power button to turn the printer on again.
The printer might go through a warm-up period of up to 2 minutes. Lights might flash and the print carriage might move. Wait until this warm-up period is complete. Then try to print a self-test page. If it is able to print, the issue is resolved. (See instructions at the end of this article on how to print a self-test page.)

If the printer does not turn off, clear any paper jam. Press the resume button on the printer front panel. If the paper jam does not clear, continue with this procedure.

Leave the printer turned on, disconnect the power cable from the printer, and then disconnect the USB cable from the back of the printer.

Push the two latch handles on the rear access door of the printer toward each other, and then remove the door. Please refer to the image below.

Remove any paper that is inside the printer by pulling the paper out from the back of the printer.
If the paper jam cannot be removed from the back of the printer, raise the printer cover, remove the paper jam from the front of the printer, and then lower the cover.
Remove the paper carefully. It is possible to damage the printer when removing paper from the front of the printer.

Reconnect only the power cable. If the printer does not automatically turn on, turn it on by pressing the power button.

Again, the printer might go through a warm-up period of up to 2 minutes. Lights might flash and the print carriage might move. Wait until this warm-up period is complete. Then try to print a self-test page. If it is able to print, the issue is resolve. (See instructions at the end of this article on how to print a self-test page.)

If the Power light is blinking and the print carriage is still in a stalled position, continue with this procedure.

With the printer turned on, open the printer cover. The print carriage might move into the access area automatically. Allow it to move to that position.
If the print carriage does not move automatically into the access area, turn off the printer by pressing the power button.

Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer.

Looking in through either the ink cartridge access door or the output paper tray, make sure that no obstructions under or around the print carriage are blocking it from moving.

Make sure that the print carriage can move freely across the width of the printer by gently pushing the print carriage to the left and then to the right. Clear any obstructions.

Remove and reinstall the print cartridges. Make sure that it is properly installed back.
Close the printer cover and connect back the power cord.
Print a self-test page. If it is able to print, the issue is resolve. (See instructions at the end of this article on how to print a self-test page.)

To print a self-test page, make sure the printer is turned on. The USB cable of the printer to the computer must be disconnected to make sure that we are isolating the printer problem.

Press and hold the Print and Cancel button at the same time. Make sure that the printer is loaded with paper. The self-test page will like the image below.

Printer not working


Hello Kathi1603,
Please try these few things to see if they will get your printer running again. First off, check to make sure your USB cable is properly connected at both the computer end and printer end. If that's OK..then power cycle the printer.. try to print a test page by going to the control panel from your start button and then select Printers and Faxes.. using the right mouse button for your printer, selcet Properties then pick 'print a test page' see if that works.. If that fails, then transfer the USB can;e to another USB port on your computer and retry all the previous things.. When all else fails, restart your computer and see if you can print a test page to your printer.. Hope this helps get you going..

Won't print - just flashes it's lights at me!


I tried what phrek said (" Pressing the flashing buttons simultaneously, evokes the printer to spit out an internal diagnostic page ..."), but after the diagnostic page printed out the printer worked fine again.

Thanks for the help, and hopefully things work out for the rest of you as well.

The Paper light keeps flashing when theres paper in the printer


A few things could be happening here.

1. Clear the print queue, and if there are jobs that won't delete, reboot the computer.
2. Now clear the jobs on the printer (cancel job button) until the status light turns green.
3. Put a piece of paper in the manual feed tray on the front.
4. Print a test page.
If the test page prints to the paper in the manual feed tray, then it is set as the default tray. Go into the printer settings and change it to "auto" or tray 1. If the test page prints to tray 1, but the original document you tried to print (when it got stuck) still won't print, cancel the job. Now, again, put paper in the manual feed tray. Try to print the document again and if it pulls from there, go into page setup of your document and change the setting from "manual" to "auto" or tray 1. Clear the job again (if it's stuck) and you should be able to print again. Hope this helps. This is one of the most common solutions - it happens a lot, especially with documents that are emailed from other people and once they get stuck in the queue, nothing will print (except the test pages directly from the printer, like you describe).

In starting 1 page print


Hi,

I believe that after changing the ink cartridge you havent completed the alignment process.This Alignment test page will print everytime you turn the printer ON.To Complete the alignment follow my steps.

1.After turning the printer ON, wait untill the printer prints the Alignment test page.

2.Then place the alignment test paper on the scanner, facing down in a correct position.

3.Then press the Scan button(color) and wait untill the printer ON light stops flashing.

4.After the light stops flashing, take the paper out and the alignment process is completed.

Turn OFF and turn On the printer, it will not print the Test page again.try it and please let me know.Would really appreciate your rating for my solution.

Thanks
Riz.

have you refilled these? If so you must disable the status moniter for it to work. If they aren't refilled they are probably about to run low
