When I turn on my HP Deskjet 810c printer, the piece carrying the ink cartridges seems to be stuck in the "home" position. The motor tries to move it, but can't. I can't move it manually, either. Any suggestions?

HP 810C. Lower of three lights winking. Ink cartridges installed. Driver confirmed as O.K. Attempts at printing form queue - now deleted. Will not print. Will not clean or do any maintenance function....


The blinking ink light means that the printer does not recognize one of the ink cartridges. Power the printer off, pull out the power cord, wait for awhile, replug and turn the printer on. If the light no longer blinks, ok. If not, try installing another cartridge pair if you have them available - even if they are old used ones. If the ink light continues to blink with different cartridges or if you don't have any different cartridges, old or new, you have a dilemma. Do you want a new printer or do you want to continue to chase this problem. To chase this problem, get new cartridges and install them (half the price of a new printer). If that works your set, but if not you need to have your printer serviced which is doubtful that it is worthwhile doing so.

Acts like it is printing but does not apply ink has new cartridge and goes though the motions of printing but does not seem to be getting the ink spit signal to the cartridge.


I would try another cartridge especially if it is a refilled one. I don't think there is one "ink spit" signal, rather several so one would not stop it. In any case, probably not the printer but the cartridge that is failing. The refilled cartridges somehow bypass the ink available signal from the cartridge and the printer thinks everything is ok, sending firing signals to an empty cartridge. That's why I try another or try this one in another printer, if possible. If it is something wrong in the printer, a new printer is cheaper than the repair would be.

Toner light keeps blinking


The inkjet uses ink, not toner. When the light is blinking it indicates something is wrong with one of the cartridges, such as can't find it, not installed, out of ink, improperly installed, printer has died. First thing to try is to disconnect the power (not just power off) for 5 - 10 minutes and reconnect. If that does not resolve it, inspect the cartridges and reinstall them. If you have another printer that uses the same cartridges, try the cartridge in it. if not, get another set of cartridges and install them. If none of these steps resolve the problem, chances are that the printer is the problem and is probably not worth spending additional time on it.

Magenta in tricolor not flowing


unplug printer cables, replug in
take cartridges out, put back in making sure sure nothing is obstructing the ink dispensary on the cartridges and that they're clean
look in the printer where the cartridges go, making sure nothing is blocking the ink
check the rollers to make sure no paper is caught inside the printer
turn on printer and try this
hope this works and good luck

Ink cartridge


Is the ink cartridge now unstuck? Are the cartridge ports free of any dried ink, etc. are new cartridges in place? Try turning your printer off for several minutes and then turning it back on. Let us know if this does not work.

Scrap it. I suspect your 810C has the same problem as mine - it's buggered. I have done everything to address the blinking cartridge light but nothing works. I've come to the conclusion that it's a mechanical/electrical problem and that my 810C, which has worked pretty well, bar the odd tantrum, for many years now, has come to the end of its life. Very possibly its demise has been hastened by the use of remanufactured cartridges, a practice I will continue as long as the real McCoys are such a rip-off.
