Remove one cartridge and close the access door. If the cartridge light goes off, the bad cartridge has been removed. If the light continues to blink, remove the other cartridge and reinstall the first one. If the light goes off, the cartridge in the printer is the good one.

Teardrop shaped light flashing on hp 5650


Hello Sgaetjens,

The tear drop shape LED is called the print catridge LED indicator. If you do see this light flashing it means that there is an issue with one or both of the cartridges. This issue can occur for the following reasons:
  • One or both cartridges might be incompatible with the product.
  • One or both cartridges might be improperly inserted.
  • The borderless printing settings require adjustments.
For the first,two I suggest that you verify that it is indeed HP original cartridge and not just replacement ones that you can purchase anywhere. Remove and reseat the ink cartridges carefully. With regards to borderless printing, go to Control Panel and then Printers and open up your HP Printer and then check the properties and defaults. Normally it is under Printing Shortcuts where you could find Borderless Printing.

Top light blinking, will not print


I believe that the top light is the low printer cartridge signal. Did you replace the cartridge or just take it out and reinstall it? Did you use a new HP cartridge or refilled cartridge?

Try a new ink cartridge from HP and double check that you have the correct cartridge for your printer. If that doesn't solve the problem, contact HP.

Ink from my deskjet 5650 smears off my glossy postcards.


Hello there jbaerpynes.

You must use HP branded glossy paper in this particular printer as recommended by the manufacturer. Because HP ink is much finer than most other inkjet printers, the ink sometimes does not set in properly on generic papers, especially glossy ones, and can smear right off.

Try new paper and get back to me. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to comment on my post. If I helped you, please give me a positive rating.

Thanks.

Out of paper light flashes even after paper is loaded


Flashing resume light also can mean:

1. cartridge is missing or an incorrect print cartridge is installed
2. cartridge is out of ink
3. dirty cartridge contacts
4. paper jammed

Check are cartridges firmly snapped into place and not empty. Use water to wash copper on cartridges if contacts are dirty.

Hp 845c orange light keeps flashing


When the orange light is flashing, either paper jam or ink problem is happening.Try unloaging & reloading the stack of paper in the main tray. Remove & reinsert ink cartridges in the printer. You may also clean the contacts of the cartridge and inside the product.
