Flashing Red Lights

I replaced the magenta, yellow, and cyan cartridges and now all I get is two flashing red lights. What do I need to do to get this thing to print? Thanks. Lee

    Red lights are flashing and the paper is not rolling into printer

  • azjz Nov 28, 2008

    My printer was printing very faint but there was no indication that the inks were out. I cleaned the ink nozzles -- and then the printer started flashing alternate red lights. And won't stop.

Only prints in green and blue

You are more than likely out of magenta (red) ink. That printer uses a tri-color cartridge, and it has cyan (blue) magenta (red) and yellow ink. Green is blue + yellow-therefore you do have those two colors; since it will not print anything red or black you will need to replace both cartridges.

Hi there. The reason for your problem is that the colour cartridge contains cyan, magenta and yellow ink, plus a black cartridge of course. All the other myriad colours are produced by mixing these four basic colours. So, if you print red, it requires ink from both the magenta and yellow cartridges. Thus if your red produces a yellow print, it means your magenta is not printing. This can be due to a number of reasons, mainly an empty or faulty magenta cartridge or blocked magenta print nozzles.

If you wish me to help you with sorting out the lack of magenta, please post a new comment to this effect.

Printing Yellow instead of Red

The colours in the 3 colour cartridges are cyan, magenta and yellow. If you want to print "red", this requires a mixture of magenta and yellow. Thus if only yellow is printed when you should be printing red, it means the magenta is not printing i.e. faulty/empty magenta cartridge or faulty/blocked magenta nozzles.

Please post a new comment if you wish for further help with this problem.

Flashing Lights

From the User Guide:

Black, Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow Supplies Status lights
These lights indicate when a print cartridge is low (the light is on), or empty or missing (the
light blinks). The lights also indicate when a non-HP print cartridge is installed (the light
blinks and the Attention light is on).

If you don't have a User Guide click on the link below and save it for future reference.
