Question about Computers & Internet

I have a HP Desktop 5940 printer. Nearly full ink cartridge, yet it isn't printing. It just printed about 7 pages off perfectly, but then when I tried to print more of my coursework off, which is due in tomorrow, it came up with a flashing light on the printer. The flashing light symnol looks like a water droplet. Please can you help. I am in urgent need of assistance. Thanks a lot Jack

Try opening up the printer and pulling the cartridges out and putting them back in. Make EXTRA sure that they are in properly and try again.

If that doesn't work, try and see if your printer has an option to clean the print heads.

My HP C4780 PRINTER WILL PRINT A TEST PAGE BUT NOTHING ELSE. How do I get it to print?


Check the settings in Windows Print Manager.

Make sure that the paper quality matches what is in the printer. If set to glossy, minimal ink is deposited on the page. Also, check the print quality - draft quality provides a minimal amount of ink as well.

My hp 5940 only prints half of each letter on the page


The only serviceable part of this printer is the ink cartridges which includes the print heads. The error is cause by a clogged or defective ink cartridge head. You can retract the cartridges and clean the head with a soft tissue, an 70% alcohol can be of help to loosen the inks. Reinstall the cartridges and test. If error is still there, replace cartridges with new one.
Good luck.

Ink low indication on HP Deskjet F4288


hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? Friend the problem is the ink level dropped 3/4 after printing 7 pages and low exclamation mark in red. Friend it is the real deal since you are using a free ink cartrdge with your printer that ink is only a sample one and the content of that cartridge is not full thats why it dropped to empty in just a few pages of printing. It just appear full in the ink level monitoring since the printer auto detects new cartridge on the tank. It is just so You need to buy a new ink cartridge the one with the full content.and i'm sure it will last a long time since it is already full. thats all friend good luck hope i helped you.

I need step by step instructions as far as how to change cartridges in hp deskjet 5440 printer


[This is from HP.com]

Introduction This document explains the basics of installing or replacing the print cartridges. It is for a 5940 which is the same printer design, yours may look a bit different but I copied this from HP at the section for your printer so follow the instructions and you should be okay.
Insert the print cartridges
NOTE: The printer shown below is the HP Deskjet 5940 series printer. Your printer might look slightly different.
  1. Turn the printer on. The cartridge cradle will not move if the power is not on.
  2. Open the printer cover. Figure 1: Open the cover c00393707.gif
  3. Wait until the print cartridge cradle moves to the right side of the printer and is idle and quiet.
  4. If you are replacing a print cartridge, press down on the print cartridge to be replaced, and then slide it out of the print cartridge cradle. If you are installing print cartridges for the first time, go to the next step.
  5. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and carefully remove the plastic tape. Hold the print cartridge so that the copper strips are on the bottom and facing toward the printer. Figure 2: Remove tape c00393708.gif 1 - Protective tape CAUTION: Do not touch the print cartridge ink nozzles or copper contacts. Touching these parts will result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections. Do not remove the copper strips. They are required electrical contacts.
  6. Slide the print cartridge at a slight upward angle into the cradle until the cartridge snaps into place. Figure 3: Install the print cartridge c00393709.gif
  7. Repeat steps 3-4 for the remaining print cartridge.
  8. Close the printer cover. The printer automatically prints a calibration page.
