    Hate to tell you Guru, but paper fragments in the gear chain is not the answer. Have just finished stripping the whole printer down and cleaning the inside-waste ink tanks and all to no avail-both the computer and the printer are indicating a problem with both cartridges. Maybe an electical problem? I t has crossed my mind that the printer has reached it's max printed sheet life and needs to be reset to zero- any info?

Look carefully to make sure there is no paper jammed inside. Sometimes there can be a small piece of paper that tore-off in the gears causing a paper jam.

Hp 1315v all-in-one printer will not recognize cartridge. Does anyone know how to bypass the coding that tells it to not recognize the cartridge?


This page addresses what to do if you get different blinking lights on the printer. Match up the blinking light on this page with the light on your computer. Then click the plus sign to expand the page and view the solutions. The solutions for blinking cartridge light are not easily pasted here and I can't bookmark to that solution.

Blinking Lights

One thing to keep in mind with ink cartridge problems is that the cartridge has a warranty as well. You might consider checking back with HP using the warranty on your cartridge.

Printer will not communicate with computer. tried unplugging it also unplugged computer and tried restarting. Green light blinking and alternating betwee 1,C,E. Amber light blinking at bottom left


The error indicates a communication failure between one of the cartridges and the printer. Try to check which cartridge is causing the error by inserting one cartridge at a time. Replace the cartridge(s) causing the error. If error continues, you can also contact Lexmark technical support to further investigate the problem. Thanks.

Blinking teardrop light blinking


Blinking drop light on HP6122 signifies an ink cartridge is out of ink. There are two cartridges -- color (larger of two) and black (smaller of two). Blinking drop light only indicates either, but not which. HP6122 service software and print driver are available from HP website http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=83027&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us. HP6122 service software has a printer maintenance utility which includes ink cartridge monitor. Use the maitenance service utility to determine which (or both) cartridge is out of ink. With cartridge replacement, printer should automatically print test page, then reset and be ready for printing from your computer. To clear printed documents from print que, open the HP6122 print que via control panel > printers > double-click on HP6122 driver to show que > select document tab > select cancel.

Attention Light Is Rapidly Blinking Orange


sorry I got it, usually you may try:
1) check all paper road no paper inside include the area betweem input tray and cartridge unit the area wetween cartridge and fuser unit and output tray.
2) check 4 sensor input sensor near the input tray roller, marging sensor between input roller and cartridge unit, cartridge sensor at oneside of cartridge unit body, fuser sensor near fuser roller. usually need to clean or adjustment the position.
3) check input roller and cartridge unit and fuser unit at running condition when the power on.
anyone nothing running show error light blink, also show the hardware trouble if all sensors are normal.

Cartridges have small electrical contacts. It sounds as though either the cartridge is faulty or it may have got stuck in the wrong place.

Firstly turn off the printer.

If you are using it with a computer via a usb connector, disconnect the lead from the printer.

Disconnect the power lead from the printer.

Lift the lid to gain access to the cartridges.

Ensure they move freely along the track from right to left.

Remove the cartridges and re-insert them one at a time.

Close the lid, reconnect the power lead and USB connector.

Switch the printer back on.

If you are using it with a PC, your computer should automatically detect it after a few seconds. If it doesn't then restart your PC.

If this does not clear the problem, try new cartridges. If it still does not work, the printer may have a control fault.

Hope it works, good luck!
