HP 6940 won't print black-new cartridge installed-prints color but no black


In all likelihood your print head has become clogged at the black ink outlet. Be aware that printheads can BURN OUT if you keep trying to print and there's insufficient ink reaching the printhead. The ink flow is relied upon to prevent overheating of the tiny resistors at the printhead. Best bet is to remove the cartridges from the printhead and then remove the printhead and try to clean it in warm water. You will find many youtube videos on suggestions for cleaning the printheads on HP printers. Do a google search for your model. If all else fails you can order replacement printheads for the part that has failed. They are not cheap so price compare. Oftentimes they will cost nearly as much as a new printer!

MY HP DESKJET 6940 PRINTING PREFENCES DOES NOT SHOW SERVICE THIS DEVICE TAB. I HAVE GONE TO THE HP WEBSITE AND REINSTALLED BUT IT STILL ISN'T SHOWING.


The single red ink drop is blinking and printer is not printing.
Do I have to replace both cartridges, earlier, only replaced the b/w.
Did not notice print getting dim before this happened.

HP deskjet 6940 has been installed. I see it in printers and it says ready but nothing will print to it. On the front of the printer there is a blinking orange arrow. What does that mean?


hello, have you tried pressing the orange button to see if machine will continue and pick up paper and print, also are there any other lights that come on, you might want to take paper out, and turn it around, and install back in. and try again. you might also want to change one ink cartridge at a time to see if that also might be the problem

The tear drop light on the right is blinking on and off. the toner cartridge is new.


Same thing on mine started today. Did they install a timer to do that for today? Sounds fishy

Which lights for ink mean what? I know the triple is color, but there are 2 single lights and only one spot for black. It is full but the first light stays lit and it won't print.


The left lamp is for color cartridge, the right is for black.If one of them blinking mean the ink cartridge missing or printer not recognize it.

Cant print. the tear like button is blinking


I have a 6940 color printer and I am assuming the 'tear' buttons are the same. If so, it is an out of toner indicator.

HP Deskjet 6940 not printing after replacing ink cartridge


My HP Deskjet 6940 is not printing. The color (left) low ink light is dark and the black (right) low ink light is flashing. I replaced the black ink cartridge with a new one but the low ink light continues to flash. No tears/rips in the circuit strip and all the copper leads appear to be connected
