First try to clean the gold contact points inside the printer, where the cartridge identification chip comes into the contact with the printer. this is located inside the cartrige slots. If that doesnt work check that the correct colours are being inserted into the correct slots. If you are using un-original cartridges or cartridges that have been refilled they may be incompatible or have been damaged through refilling, you must purchase original lexmark cartridges.

Printer works but won't print.


How new are your ink cartridges? You could be either getting low on ink OR your ink cartridge's print head may be clogged up with ink. When this happens, none of the ink is able to come out, so you won't see any text on the page when you send a print job to it.

I hope this helps! :)

I've gotten three new black ink cartridges from different sources and none of them are registering in the printer which is making me wonder if this is a problem with the printer. I've cleaned the ink...


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink or toner cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridges that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks or toner causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead or photo conductors.
If you are using factory new ink or toner cartridges, then please call the manufacturer’s Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

I have a HP Deskjet F4180 AIO. It is printing


If you just replaced the ink cartridges, make sure you've removed the plastic tabs that cover where the ink shoots out. If they are old cartridges, make sure that the nozles haven't dried up. Remove the cartridges and dab a cloth (one you don't mind staining) where the ink shoots out, if all the colours show up, it's clear. If you notice very little colour, or none at all, try dampening the cloth and wiping down the cartridges to promote inkflow through the nozles. Hope this helps.

Acts like its printing but no ink on paper


Using HP Director, you should be able to check estimated ink levels by selecting Settings -> Print Settings -> Printer Toolbox and then clicking on the Estimated Ink Levels tab.

If the ink levels appear to be sufficient, on the printer control panel press Setup, 1, 4. This will generate a self-test report. If there is streaking of any of the 4 bars at the bottom of the page, the affected cartridge may need to be cleaned. If any of the bars are missing, the cartridge needs to be replaced.

To clean the cartridges, press Setup, 5, 1. This will print a page of patterns.

Orange flashing light on printer


No the ink is not to low you could try removing the ink cartridges and using a soft cloth wipe clean the little gold contacts on the cartridge and also the printer. Is the ink cartridge a original one if not even though the HP software states that there is 20% in there the likely thing is that the cartridge is empty replace and this should be OK.


I hope the first suggestion works for you as will not cost any money.

Thanks J
