Hi
You not say what make of printer you got so not can gave you much help, because there is a reset code for different printers, the flashing lights you may be getting it because your, waste ink pads need changing and after this you need the reset codes for it but some times just the reset code will do the trick for it to print again.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

My HP D1560 Deskjet Printer keeps blinking and computer says Cartridge Problems but I have refilled my ink cartridges like I have in the past---what do I do ? It won't let me print ? Ahhh Help


First of all understand what is cartridge the you can solve your problem your self in future if related same: The cartridge contains two parts 1. ink tank, 2. Pen(electronic nozzles controlled by mother board).. Ink tank contains ink & main source to pen to write,.. if ink is over you wont get any image.Ink is there but pen is not writing then no use..both conbination has work to gether to create image..As you said ink is there, but pen is not working due to ecetronic nozzles are faulty & this information with mother board, that's why its indicating that replace the cartrdige..And we can't repair it because of micro technology.
See fig: 1. Container, 2.Nozzles. 3. Electronic contacts to control nozzles..

Printer wont print, computer communication error that wont send information to the printer, but the scanner will scan to the computer. Power light on the printer blinks 2 times, pause, blinks once, pause,...


“All lights blinking” is indicative of serious ink cartridge issue. Usually when this happens the printer fails to goes through the motions of the printing process, kind of stands still. If it an All-in-One it still scans though. This could be as a result of eithe of these of scenarios.
i. Ink cartridge has developed incompatibility. Solution is to try an older/another cartridge (doesn’t matter if ink is finished. You must replace cartridge one at a time). If lights stop blinking it confirms that your cartridge has become incompatible or developed incompatibility. Also if your printer is the type that can work with only one cartridge, remove one after the other (closing back the lid/cover) to determine which in the set (black or color) has become incompatible. At the instance the incompatible one is removed and you close the lid, the blinking will stop (for printers that can print with one ink cartridge only). Just replace the incompatible one and start printing again. In most cases the issue is always with one cartridge. But if both are affected, you have to replace both. Because of this problem, always keep used cartridges somewhere safe; they come in handy for this type of troubleshooting.
The electronic panel on the cartridge that makes contact with the cartridge carrier inside the printer is dirty and needs cleaning. Solution is try to clean with a piece of folded tissue paper soaked in a bit of methylated spirit. Also clean the area in the cartridge carrier/holder that makes contact with the cartridge’s electronic panel. Allow to dry well and return the cartridges, close the cover. The blinking should stop if the electronic panel is the issue.

I cannot print despite new ink


Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

PF-2 Won't detecd cd


First try re-installing the PF-2 print drivers. If that doesn't work, then try a different ink cartridge. If you have printed more than 5000 discs in the printer, it just may need a good cleaning as the sensors would be full of dried ink.

open the top cover and allow the print cradle to move to one of the icons this indicates what the problem might be

it either shows that the cartridge is not inserted properly or the incorrect cartridge
or may be low on ink.

remove the cartridge and reinsert

if all else fails replace with new cartridges

Ink cartridge light keeps blinking


you need to print only in black if that is all the ink you have, and also you need to remove the color cartridge as it still registers in the printer as able to be used, although it is empty or near so. Did you remove the tape over the print head fron the new ink cartridge? Do a print head alignment, or use the toolbox icon to tell the printer that you just replaced the cartridge. Some HP models chip the ink cartridges so even a refill wont register as a full tank and the printer wont print. chip needs to be reset (difficult) or just replaced with a new cartridge.

Replaced ink cartridges and check ink cartridges still blinks


If your software is installed correctly when your printer, connected via USB?, the printer icon in the system tray can be clicked and bring up the printer utility. From there or at the printer control panel you can instruct it to align and or clean the print heads.

Disc Feeding Problem


I am assuming you are using a PF-2 printer. If you are using a standard HP78 ink cartridge instead of the Microboards cartridge, the unit will only print approx 5 discs before it stops. The microboards cartridges have a security tag under the barcode label that is scanned by a magnetic reader on the left hand part of the unit. If you are careful, you can use a razor blade and remove the label from a microboards cartridge and tape it on the front of a HP ink and save yourself about $25 an ink cartridge...
