Question about HP DeskJet 932c InkJet Printer

1 Answer

The ink icon light is blinking

I changed the color cartridge yesterday and the test page printed just fine. Since then, the red light above the ink icon won't stop blinking. I have run through a gamut of "solutions" and cannot get the ink icon to stop blinking.

  1. Reset your printer if you are having communication problems with the computer. To do so, press the "Power" button to turn off the printer. Wait a few seconds and then power it back on.
  2. Power off the printer again if you are still running into problems and disconnect the power cable from the AC power. Wait a few seconds and reconnect the power cable. Power on the printer. This simple procedure resets the printer back to the default factory settings. Move to the next step if the reset does not work.
  3. Disconnect the USB cable from the printer. Insert the printer software installation CD into the CD-ROM drive on your computer and wait for it to automatically launch. Click the Windows "Start" button if it does not launch and click "My Computer. Right-click the CD-ROM drive with the disk and click "Autoplay to run the CD.
  4. Select "Setup" on the CD and select "Remove HP DeskJet 932c. The printer software and drivers are removed from your computer.
  5. Reconnect the USB cable to the printer. The installation disc automatically recognizes it and begins reinstalling the software and drivers.
  6. Print a test sheet to verify that the printer is now working. You can print a test sheet using a word processing application (e.g. Microsoft Word) or using the Internet.

I have and hpdeskjet 960c printer. The amber light over the symbol for the ink cartridges is blinking. I replaced both the black and color cartridges. The light is still blinking and the printer won't...


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

HP 932 RED LIGHT STAYS ON


The light you describe is the ink light.
When that light is blinking, try this.

Turn on the printer. Open the front cover and look at the carrier for the ink cartridges. There is a white arrow right above the latch for the color cartridge.
Once the carrier stops moving, the white arrow should be pointing to a symbol which represents the problem (the reason the light is blinking.) Examples are low ink black, low ink color, sick black ( replace ) , sick color ( replace ).

IF you have just replaced your black cartridge, you might need to replace your color cartridge too.
This printer will not work without both ink cartridges installed and full.
You cant print with a full black and an empty color cartridge unfortunately, even if you only want to print black.

Hope this helps!

Printer will not print black ink


Hi please try these steps:::

Right-click the printer icon, and then select 'Properties'.
2. Click the 'Maintenance' tab, and then click 'Deep Cleaning'.

3. Select 'All Colors', 'Black' or 'Color' for the print head to be cleaned.

4. Read the message displayed, and then click 'OK'. The power lamp blinks and print head deep cleaning starts. (Do not perform any other operations until print head deep cleaning is complete. Print head deep cleaning takes about 1 minute.)

IF ABOVE STEPS DOESN'T WORK TRY THESE STEPS BELOW

Check ink tank vent hole The ink tank requires air to flow through it so ink can move from the reservoir to the print heads.

  1. Confirm there is no orange tape across the top of the ink tank

  2. If the orange tape is as shown in Figure (1), it is properly removed.

    *BCI-3's shown in this example.

  3. If the orange tape is as shown in Figure (2), remove the remaining tape to the level shown in Figure (1).

  4. Make sure each ink tank is snapped into the printer.

    IF THESE STEPS DIDNOT WORK THEN YOUR PRINTER NEEDS REPAIR(You might need to change the printer head.)

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.

Color printing


Hi I take it that you have removed the blue tape that is over the cartridge when you install it? If you have are they original or refills if refills change for an original.

If you have done the above then remove the ink cartridge and with soft cloth wipe clean the gold contacts on the cartridge and also on the carriage.

When you have done the above try printing again if still not printing then check the following.
  • Goto Start Printers and Faxes
  • Right hand click on the printer Icon
  • Select "Printing Preferences"
  • Make sure that you are set to color
  • Close window the Right hand click on Icon again
  • Select Properties
  • Click on Print test page
  • This should not print in color if color was selected in printing preferences.
I do hope this works for you
Thanks J

It will not print.


Hi Greenhorn, Your info is slightly conflicting - I think. As I remember the C60 has just 2 LED's: 1 - Green for Power 2 - Red for Error The third button - Cartridge exchange - has no LED Now it is a while since I looked at a C60 and my brain leaks like a sieve, but that's the way I remember it and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. The error codes I remember are: Printer status - Indicators - Priority Power - Error Power ON condition On - Ink sequence Blink - Ink Cartridge change mode Blink - Data processing Blink - Paper Out *1 - On Paper jam condition *1 - On Ink end (Black) *1 - On -> Blink Ink level low (Black) - Blink-> Blink Ink end (Color) *1 - On -> Blink2 Ink level low (Color) - Blink-> Blink2 Ink end (Black and Color) - On -> On No Ink Cartridge (Black or Color) *1 - On Maintenance request (Ink Overflow Countererror) *1 Alt Blink Alt Blink Fatal error *1 Off On Special setting Blink2 Blink2
