    I have a printer HP DJ 5940 and i have a problem with my connection. in status the printer says ready but when i try to printtest page says test page faild to print and i can't print. Any idea Manolis

    Please follow exactly and IN ORDER.

    1. Turn off the printer and wait 10 seconds. Turn it on again

    2. Let the printer print the test page.

    3. After the test page is printed, disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer to your computer. DO NOT turn off the printer while disconnecting the USB cable.

    4. Place the test page on the scanner glass and press the SCAN button on the printer. The ON light will flash as the page is being scanned.

    5. Remove the test page when the ON light is steady.

    6. Finally, turn off the printer and wait another 10 seconds. Then turn it on again. No more printing test pages! Yay!

    The red light with the arrow pointing down keep flashing and it won't print. It the print the first page just fine. What does it mean when the red light is flashing?

    Its either a paper jam error or your printer is out of paper,open your printers back cover and check properly to see where the paper jam is located.

    HP 5940: Can't clean print nozzles- the services facility is not installed but downloading drivers from net doesn't fix this. What next?

    You can download the entire contents of your original installation CD from HP's site, look for it.
    Also, try removing the cartridges and set the print head in household ammonia for 15-20 minutes, then blot on absorbent paper towels (don't scrub, it may pick up fibers) until you see that the printing surface of the cartridge is bleeding well.

    Nor printing

    Go to which is the HP online manual for this printer. Open it and go to page 92. Follow the recommended troubleshooting steps carefully.
    Note: It is likely that the cartridge you installed is "dry". Or (and this one is no fun) the cartridge you purchased is not compatible with the 5940. Does the left-side panel of the wrapper carton have a listing of "5940" under the paragraph HP Deskjet ?

    Also, if you purchased a store-refilled or store-recycled cartridge, it may not work. I had this happen once with a refill. Sorry, but you'll have to dispose of the recycled cartridge and purchase the reall HP deal.

    You are spilling blue toner. Try to vacuum out the excess blue toner from the machine. Be careful not to scratch the transfer belt.
