First make sure there is no blue tape over the print head (the coppery brown strip is the electronics - don't pull this part off). If this wasn't the problem then the electronics on your cartridge are not functioning properly. There is no way to fix the electronics and you should get your money back from Walgreens. I own a Cartridge World store and we always make sure the electronics are functioning before we sell a cartridge. The HP 78s are very sensitive and sometimes do not work even after all our efforts. Yet with our 100% satisfaction guarantee our customers get working replacements for free.

I put new print cartridges in my 960c printer. They are hp 78 for color and 45 for black and white. my orange ink light will not stop blinking. It is not printing


I have an HP DeskJet 1220C that has been working fine for two years now. All of a sudden it can only print in pink and black. It is driving me crazy. I have tried the following without any success:

1. Replaced the cartridges twice
2. Aligned and cleaned the cartridge from the
computer
3. Soaked the cartridge head in hot water,
and made sure that all three colors will bleed
out of the head
4. Cleaned the cartridge contacts with an eraser
5. Cleaned the cartridge contacts on the printer
with a brush

Is there a cure, or is it time for a new printer?

Check if you replaced it with the correct ink cartridge or return to supplier for a replacement.(Also ask your supplier to test it)

Orange blinking light at cartridge icon


The Amber light is designated as the "Ink Error" light. With regards to a 960C Hewlett Packard or almost any inkjet printer, the Amber light is indicating that one of the Ink Cartridges (Tri-Color/Black) is empty, defective, unrecognizable, or just simply needs to be changed. The procedure is; lift up the front cover, look at the Black Ink Cartridge, and examine the Ink Level Window on the Cartridge, located at the center of the Cartridge. If the square window appears to be a solid Green then that means the cartridge is completely full. If it is Half Green/Half Black then it is indicating that the cartridge is half way full, and if the square window is completely Black, then the cartridge is completely empty. Also, remove and examine the Tri-Color Cartridge. If the Tri-Color Cartridge feels very light or if the Tri Colors on the bottom of the Cartridge appear to be discolored i.e. All Magenta, All Cyan, or All Yellow, then the Cartridge should immediately be changed. After replacing the Black or Tri-Color Cartridge, your printers Green Power Light will flash and allow you to continue your print job

You can also try:
Clean the cartridge and carriage contacts with a cotton swab moistened with water. If you have refilled the cartridges don't assume that they will still work. If cleaning doesn't help you may have a failed cartridge even if it is not refilled.
If you are getting a grinding noise, clean the carriage rod with alcohol and lubricate it with a few drops of Tri-Flow, available in 2 oz. squeeze bottles at cycle shops.

Rhinotek color cartridge not recognized in my HP printer. what can I do?


Non-HP cartridges often give troubles in HP printers. Probably the best thing you could do is just use HP cartridges.

Unable to print with new ink carts


Usually, that message means that your cartridge is dead. Try removing it, clean the electric contacts on it and the ones on the cartridge carrier. Put it back in. If that doesn't help, you will need to buy a new color cartridge.
If you do not have a replacement cartridge, you can still print in, what HP calls "ink backup mode". Simply remove the problem cartridge, and print with the remaining one, in this case, the black one.
  • If you remove the tri-color cartridge, printouts will be in grayscale.

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.
