SOURCE: Error message "cover door is open or printer cartridge is missing"

Try to find the latch in the cover that presses a switch to indicate it is closed it is usually a small stick projection at the sides of the cover. Replace the cartridge it should fit snuggly then try it again.

SOURCE: top cover open error when printing

I had the same problem and fixed it by sticking the end of a pen (the writing part) in the hole on the right side when you open the top cover.

In other words if you open the top cover and look on the top cover you will see a tab that goes into a hole(the hole is next to the picture of the print cartridges). There is a hole with switch/tab(I don't know the proper terminology) on it that is activated when you close the top cover. If you stick the end of a pen in that hole it should activate something and the print cartridges will start to make noise and move around. You can then close the cover and it should close all the way.

You can then try to print a test page.

Good Luck

Look in through either the cartridge access door or the output paper tray to make sure that the cartridges are secure in the carriage and not loose. Also, make sure that there are no obstructions under or around the carriage to block it from moving. 4.

1. Press the Power button ( ) to turn off the product. 2. Open the front of the product to access the carriage. The carriage moves to the center of the product.
3. Unlatch the two print cartridge latches, and then raise the latches. 4. Remove the print cartridges.
Step two: Reinsert the print cartridges
1. One at a time, hold a print cartridge with the printed label up, and then slide the print cartridge into its slot. Repeat this step for the other print cartridge.
# NOTE: Insert the black print cartridge into the slot with the gray latch, and insert the color cartridge into the slot with the blue latch. # Grasp the end of the latch on the cartridge slot with your thumb, and then pull the end of the latch toward you. While holding the latch, press down on the top of the latch until it stops, and then release the end of the latch so that it catches under the tabs. CAUTION: To avoid damaging the product, do not force the latches into place.

3. Close the product cover. A message displays on the control panel to align the print cartridges. 4. Press the Enter button to begin the cartridge alignment. Two pages print. Follow the instructions printed on the second page to complete the alignment. 5. Try the print job again.
* If these steps resolved the issue , you do not need to continue troubleshooting. * If the issue persists , continue to the next solution.

Reset an hp 722c printer


To reset your printer, unplug from wall and computer. Wait 1 minute. Done. That won't fix your problem. If it prints fine off word processor, the printer is fine. Need some setup for labels.

You need to get yourself a wireless print server to connect to your printer. This will allow your printer to connect to the wireless network and print over wifi.

Here's one I found on Amazon I think will do what you need:

Try doing a self test by holding the paper feed button until the green light flashes. If it prints a test page then you should try a different printer cable. You can also clean the contact points on the cartridge (looks like gold dots) by using nail polish remover or surgical spirits.

I have just replaced the color ink cartdrige in my HP Deskjet 722c printer and I tried to print a color picture in bond paper and it was a total mess


A new ink needs a little cleaning before using. Just dab lightly on a damp paper towel and look for a inch log stripe of each color on the towel. If all colors are not there it won't print very well and you should return the cartridge. Some have reported no yellow in their new cartridges.

Banner printing on HP DeskJet 722c InkJet Printer


The problem with your printer is probably if you are using Windows XP it will not print banners from there. I downloaded drivers too and found if I went to a printer with Windows 98 and put in my software program the banner will print out. Hope this works for you. I had to find it thru trial and error.

HP 722C has quit printing black in color draft


WORKAROUND: Select EconoFast or Draft as the print quality setting in the printer properties. This will prevent the color cartridge from being used. - Or - Try another color cartridge. The color cartridge is used to print grayscale images in Normal or Best print modes, so if one color has run out, the printout will have the wrong tint. With a full color cartridge, the colors can be properly combined to create a composite black. CAUSE: When printing with Normal or Best as the print quality setting, the HP Deskjet 710C or 720C or 722C series printer will use the color ink to improve print quality output, even when printing a grayscale image.
