You have to try a few troubleshooting basics:--------
Power off printer, check and ensure cartridge if properly seated and locked (you may hear a click sound after correctly placing the cartridge or there may be some sort of locking device) when all of above is done, power on printer. assuming light is not blinking anymore, print a test page for printer to realign itself.

If above does not work, go to http://www.hp.com and go to support site. find troubleshooting tips for your printer and look for similar symptoms and possible solution. hp support group will probably ask you if you did a little troubleshooting anyway.

If after doing the above the printer still fails then go ahead and make the phone call (hopefully a toll free phone call, lol)

Good luck Sir.

Ink indicator keeps on blinking even with new ink cartridge.


The blinking ink light means that the printer does not recognize one of the ink cartridges. Power the printer off, pull out the power cord, wait for awhile, replug and turn the printer on. If the light no longer blinks, ok. If not, try installing another cartridge pair if you have them available - even if they are old used ones. If the ink light continues to blink with different cartridges or if you don't have any different cartridges, old or new, you have a dilemma. Do you want a new printer or do you want to continue to chase this problem. To chase this problem, get new cartridges and install them (half the price of a new printer). If that works your set, but if not you need to have your printer serviced which is doubtful that it is worthwhile doing so.

My HP DeskJet 712c InkJet Printer's "ink light" won't stop blinking!! I have tried changing ink cardridges, checking for paper jams, unplugging and replugging cords and re-starting computer. None...


Hello.

Give this a try:

1. Power off your printer
2. Remove and reinsert the cartridges. You should hear a "click" when properly seated.
3. Power on printer.
4. If light is out, print a test page for realignment.

Note: Be certain that the tab is removed from the cartridges and you are using "genuine" HP cartridges.

Hope this helps.

Far left light blinks/ printer wont work


And the cartridges are the correct ones?
After changing it should ask if the cartridges are new or the old ones. If it does not, reinstall the printer.

I just put new cartridges in my printer, won'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.

Inserted new cartridges..orange light still on


Try re-seating the ink cartridges. A lot of times, the electrical contacts on HP's ink cartridges do not make a solid connection.

The yellow light blinks and it won't print


I also started having problems with my HP 870Cse when I began using refilled cartridges and had ink leakage (cartridge contacts corrupted). Check for this problem. If so, remove cartridges and gently clean the spillage. Then try using HP brand cartridges and see if this doesn't remedy the problem.

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!

Hp deskjet 9800


i had the same problem -- this is what finally worked for me. turn the printer off, wait several seconds, then turn it back on. when i first turn it on, the ink lights and the resume lights blink a few times. as soon as that stops, before the ink cradle or any other parts move, lift the lid. the black piece in front of the ink cartridges will drop down so that the cartridges can be changed.

Changed all ink cartridges and now will not print, just flashing red light


It sounds like the connections on the cartridges have some ink on them.
Remove the cartridges, and take a lint free cloth, slightly dampened with alcohol. Look for all the contacts and gently clean them. You may have to do that more than once to break down and remove all the contaminents from the contacts.
Then look through the memory on the printer for a procedure called Memory Clear, and perform that. That will remove any corruption in the printer memory/software. You will have to set the printer back up once you perform a memory clear.
Make sure you clean the print head area with the printer unplugged, not just turned off. Make sure all the power is removed.
