Question about HP DeskJet 930c InkJet Printer

Orange flashing light on printer

When trying to print any document, a message comes up "unable to print". A yellow light is flashing constantly (which is above the cartridge sign). I have checked the estimated ink quantity in the HP settings file and there is 100% colour and 20% black. I have also checked for jams and there are none. I have also reinstalled the printer but the light still flashes and does not allow me to print anything. Is the black ink too low?

No the ink is not to low you could try removing the ink cartridges and using a soft cloth wipe clean the little gold contacts on the cartridge and also the printer. Is the ink cartridge a original one if not even though the HP software states that there is 20% in there the likely thing is that the cartridge is empty replace and this should be OK.


I hope the first suggestion works for you as will not cost any money.

Thanks J

My orange light next to the yellow dot blinking and the printer will not print


When the orange light is solid it means the cartridge is low and you can still print. But when the orange light is flashing it means the cartridge is empty and the printer stops printing. To continue printing you will need to replace the yellow toner cartridge. The part numbers are Q3972 regular yield or Q3962A high yield.

The light first flashed orange causing printer to pause printing. After restarting the machine and printer several times, it is constantly flashing green. printer did not initiALISE.


The light flashing orange or green could mean a couple of things. First could mean that the paper size that you are using is not the same that you have configured on the printer or the paper size that you have selected on your software is not the same as the one configured in the printer. Also it could be a message of the toner low. You can try resetting he printer to factory defaults. Turn Printer off and open the front cover. Then Press and hold the Button with the Triangle and the Cancel Button the one with the X and turn the printer back on. You will have to keep the buttons pressed until the exclamation light comes up solid then release the two buttons and close the cover. That should reset the printer to factory Defaults.

Both green and orange lights blinking. Printer


Try deleting all ready to print documents, restarting the printer and then re-booting the computer. Somebody in there is confused.

If that doesn't work, check your documentation on how to print a test page, if it will print then the problem is which the application otherwise re-install the printer.

Flashing resume light also can mean:

1. cartridge is missing or an incorrect print cartridge is installed
2. cartridge is out of ink
3. dirty cartridge contacts
4. paper jammed

Check are cartridges firmly snapped into place and not empty. Use water to wash copper on cartridges if contacts are dirty.
