"The yellow 'Alarm' light will not go off after changing cartridges.


Try removing and reinserting the cart. Or try a new cart. It sounds like it's not recognizing that a new cart has been inserted. It could be a faulty/sticky switch where the cart is detected.

I have an HP 820Cse printer. It has fresh catridges, & for some reason it wont print. I tried to print something from Wordpad, & the wheels began to take the paper in, but immediately stopped. ...


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
The yellow Resume blinking light refers to one of these issues;
  • The top cover of the printer is open or the printer is not responding.
  • The printer detects a faulty, incompatible, or improperly installed print cartridge.
  • The print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect a print cartridge.
I guess yours will be third case, do check for the first two at your own. For the third one, follow the instructions;
Note: Please Do Not wipe the nozzle end of the cartridge or touch the silver-colored nozzle plate on the bottom of the cartridge.
Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.
  • Open the top cover of the printer.
  • Remove the print cartridges.
  • Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.
  • Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.
  • Insert the cartridges back into the printer.
  • Close the top cover.
  • Try printing again.
If you are having issues, do tell me.

Teardrop light is flashing yellow. Green clock at left is lighted. Control panel says everything is ready but it won't print. There is no paoper jam.


Hi there,

This light that is showing the Print Cartridge Status. Here is what you can do:

If the light is on and not flashing: Check to see if a print cartridge is low on ink. If a print cartridge is low on ink, consider replacing the print cartridge. If neither print cartridge is low on ink, press the Resume button. If the Print Cartridge Status light remains on, turn off, then turn on the printer.

If the light is on and flashing: Verify that the correct print cartridges are installed.

Follow these steps:
1. Open the printer's top cover, remove the black or photo print cartridge, then close the cover.
2. Do one of the following:
  • If the light is flashing: Open the top cover, replace the print cartridge you removed, then remove the tri-color print cartridge. Go to step 3.
  • If the light is off: There is a problem with the print cartridge you removed. Go to step 3.
3. Manually clean the print cartridge.
After cleaning the print cartridge, reinsert it into the printer. If the print cartridge status light continues to flash, replace the print cartridge.if the light is on and not flashing. Check to see if a print cartridge is low on ink. If a print cartridge is low on ink, consider replacing the print cartridge.

Photosmart C5280. Instructions on photo cartridge 348 say remove both black and colour cartridges, then install photo cartridge in right hand cartridge holder. Printer screen then tells me to install...


Your printer uses the following cartridges:

HP 74 - Black ink
HP 75 - Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow ink
HP 99 - Photo Black, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta

You need Photo Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta to print photos. To accomplish this you install the HP 99 photo cartridge where your HP 74 black cartridge usually goes and you keep the HP 75 color cartridge where it's at. I don't know why your printer told you to remove both cartridges, then reinstall the HP 75 color cartridge.

Installed a lexmark z12 printer but not the power light but the light next to it keeps flashing and it wont print


  1. Turn the power OFF.
  2. Open the front cover.
  3. Turn the power back ON. The print cartridge carrier should move to the install position located in the middle of the printer.
  4. If it does not, close and reopen the cover:
  5. Remove the color print cartridge.
  6. Close the cover.
  7. If there is no error indicated by flashing lights, the color cartridge has short-circuited.
  8. However, if you continue to get an error, repeat steps 1-3, and then go to step 9.
  9. Remove the black print cartridge and reinsert the color cartridge.
  10. If there is no error indicated by flashing lights, the black cartridge has short-circuited.
  11. If you continue to receive an error in both cartridge scenarios, both print cartridges have short-circuited.

HP DESKJET 1180C


HP Deskjet 1180c and1220c Professional Series Printer and HP Deskjet 9300 and 1280 Printer - Troubleshooting a Blinking Print Cartridge Light Introduction The Print Cartridge light continues to blink with both cartridges properly installed and the Access Cover (also known as the top cover or lid) closed. Instructions The blinking Print Cartridge light may be caused by a faulty cartridge, the plastic case of the printer being dislodged or slightly out of position (which prevents the Access Cover from seating properly), the Access Cover sensor (also known as the top cover sensor or lid sensor), or by the actuator on the Access Cover. Follow the steps below to resolve the issue.
  1. With the printer turned on, open the Access Cover. The carriage will move out of the capping station and stop at one of the cartridge status icons located inside the printer under the Access Cover. The yellow arrow on top of the carriage will point to one of the cartridge status icons to indicate a good, empty, or faulty cartridge. See Figure 1 below.
    1. If the carriage stops in the cartridge’s OK position, indicated by the happy face in Figure 1, continue with Step 2.
    2. If a problem is indicated with one of the cartridges, remove the cartridge and verify that the cartridge part number is correct. The black cartridge part number is 51645A and the color cartridge part number is C6578A or C6578D.
    3. If the cartridge part number is correct, clean the electrical contacts on the cartridge with a soft, lint-free cloth. Do not touch or wipe the nozzle plate.
    4. If a faulty cartridge is still indicated after verifying the cartridge part number and cleaning the contacts on the cartridge, replace the cartridge.
    5. After replacing the cartridge, turn off and then turn on the printer to clear the cartridge error from the printer's memory. If the cartridge error cannot be cleared, the printer will require repair. If the carriage stops in the cartridge’s OK position, indicated by the happy-face in Figure 1, continue with Step 2. NOTE: The printer checks the status of both print cartridges before printing. Both the black and color cartridge must be functional and installed in the printer in order to print.
    Figure 1: Cartridge status icons c00001225.jpg Icon/Drawing Problem identified by the symbol Solution c00001226.jpg The color cartridge is missing, improperly installed, defective, or the wrong print cartridge is installed. 1. If there is no color cartridge in the cartridge cradle, insert a color cartridge.

    2. If there is a color cartridge in the cradle, remove the color cartridge and firmly reinsert it.

    3. Check to make sure the color cartridge is appropriate for the printer.

    4. If the problem persists, replace the color cartridge. c00001227.jpg The black cartridge is missing, improperly installed, the wrong print cartridge, or is defective. 1. If there is no black cartridge in the cartridge cradle, insert a black cartridge.

    2. If there is a black cartridge in the cradle, remove the black cartridge and firmly reinsert it.

    3. Check to make sure the black cartridge is appropriate for the printer.

    4. If the problem persists, replace the black cartridge. c00001228.jpg The color print cartridge is running low on ink. Replace the color print cartridge with a new color print cartridge. c00001229.jpg The black print cartridge is running low on ink. Replace the black print cartridge with a new black print cartridge. c00001230.jpg None. The print cartridges are working correctly. None. The print cartridges are working correctly.
  2. Close the Access Cover and wait for the printer to initialize. If the Print Cartridge light is still blinking, remove the Access Cover by following the steps below:
    1. Open the Access Cover and hold it open.
    2. Dislodge the Access Cover from the hinges with a sharp blow to the hinge area of the Access Cover and then remove the Access Cover.
  3. Install the Access Cover by following the steps below:
    1. Align the hinges on the Access Cover with the hinge pins on the printer.
    2. Push down firmly on the Access Cover until the hinges snap into position.
  4. Close the top cover and wait for the printer to initialize. If the Print Cartridge light is still blinking, the printer case may be dislodged or slightly out of position. To restore the printer case to the proper position, squeeze the printer by applying pressure to the front and back pressure points shown in Figure 2. Figure 2: Pressure points c00006497.jpg Firmly squeeze the pressure points on the printer case as shown in Figure 3. If the Print Cartridge light continues to blink, continue with step 5. Figure 3: Squeezing the pressure points c00006498.jpg
  5. If the Print Cartridge light is still blinking, push down firmly on the center of the Access Cover (the extra pressure may engage the sensor). If the Print Cartridge light quits blinking, remove the pressure from the Access Cover to see if the Print Cartridge light starts blinking again. Re-apply the pressure to the center of the Access Cover to see if the Print Cartridge light stops blinking again.
    1. If the Print Cartridge light quits blinking with pressure applied, the Access Cover is faulty and should be replaced.
    2. If the Print Cartridge light continues to blink even with pressure applied, the Access Cover sensor may be faulty and the printer will require repair.
