Hp940c print problem

Have had this printer for a few years, and it has been generally very reliable. However, this is the first time I can't fix a problem. The ink light is flashing red, but despite changing both the colour and black cartridges, I cannot get anything to print. Not even the test page. I'm at a loss to know what to try next. Can you help, please?

I have a hp940c printer that worked great in Vista premium, but using windows7 platform recognizes it but I can't print from it. I don't think there exists drivers for windows7 yet, but is there anything I...

I just looked on my windows 7 box and I see that windows has 2 built in driver versions listed for that printer. Try removing the HP software for it (if its installed) and remove the printer from "printers and devices". If the printer is hooked up with USB, unplug the USB connection from the computer and plug it back in. If its hooked up with a parallel cable, use the add a printer wizard from within the devices and printers window. I had an hp printer issue after I upgraded from vista to 7. removing the printer and having windows reinstall it fixed it for me.

Printer does not print at all

Did u remove the cellotape that covers the printhead of the new cartridge?
Other solution:
if using XP: use the HP toolbox to prepare the new catridges for firsttime printing.
If using Vista, go to start-controlpanel-printers and rightclick on hp940C icon, choose properties, select services and do a cleaning and prepare job.

Color, getting primarly blue in my printed photos

Try cleaning the nozzles of your printer. If it sat unused for awhile, some of the ink may have dried and clogged the nozzles.To clean your inkjet nozzles, open your printer's Properties screen and look for a tab labeled Maintenance, Services, or something similar. If you can't find it, look under Printer Preferences on the General tab. It may take a few times of cycling through the cleaning process to get them unclogged. Check the progress after each cycle by printing a test page.

Epson Photo Stylus 950 not functioning

when ever you want to refill ink make sure, that the ink you refill decompressed for about 30min before you fix it into the printer.
Another thing is that you uninstall the software of the printer and reinstall again, and check the power supply of the printer is working perfectly.

Maybe an obvious answer, but have you cleaned the print heads several times? You can also remove the cartridges, remove the entire print head and clean it with rubbing alcohol and a q-tip.
