Hp deskjet 940c printer

My hp deskjet 940c tells me that I have an issue with 300x300 dots per inch. I have tried to change this but cannot get it to change. When it prints it looks like it is running out of ink, but I have new ink carriage.

We have an HP 940C Deskjet connected by LPT to a Lenovo XP. The 940C Deskjet Control Panel's Printer Status reads "Status Unknown". The printer functions, but we need to use the Control...


Hello, I was using a 940C till quite recently and had no probs; however I was using USB to connect. Perhaps your LPT cable isn't fully wired and so bi-directional comms don't work, ie status info isn't received from the printer, tho' am only speculating. Anyway, could you use USB to connect or try a different LPT cable, maybe a known good or more modern one...worth thinking about anyway! Good luck, Nicam49 p.s. don't forget to vote :-)

Hi! I have a huge problem with my hp deskjet 940c. It won't print colors - only pink! I have bought two new print cartridges, but it's still no good. The black one is okay. Can you help me?


The issue here is that Most HP printers after a certain amount of years of use have that issue, mine was with the black cartridge so i bought a new one from best buy for about 30 bucks not bad for a decent all in one printer

the moving ink frame is probably pointing to a symbol such as replace color ink( three dots on ink cartridge picture). Replace color ink. You are probably printing your black and white documents with colored ink--always select black or greyscale.

Copy count - how can I find it on my HP Deskjet 940c?


If holding the resume button or ink button doesn't printout a status report, you need to look on your computer with the printer hooked up, in the maint. tab for that printer in the control panel. You just have to look around, sometimes in printer preferences or advanced maint.

Third light from the right keeps blinking printer wont print Hp 940c


I had the same problem and the following worked for me: I used a cotton swab with alcohol to clean contact points (copper colored dots) on the back of the ink cartridges themselves. I also gently cleaned the brass-colored pins in the cartridge slots. Hope this solves your problem.

Printer will not work


Not sure if you can do this, but I have used my 940c HP Inkjet successfully since it was new several years ago. I have found that anytime I have had any problems at all, I just unistall it and reinstall using the CD's that came with it. It has always solved any problems, in general. Specific problems can be taken care of by reading the Toolbox that is installed with the CD also. Good luck.
