Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.

Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage.
Now Remove the ink cartridges from the printer head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now
If that does not work then follow the next step.

Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

Blinking green light


Try disconnecting the computer from the printer and shutting it down by removing the power cord and then also shut down the computer for a minute or so and then reboot it and check in "Printers" and see if it has anything waiting to be printed and if so clear out the queue. Flashing green light indicates that the printer is receiving data from the computer and/or printing so you shut it all down and cold reboot to clear out the computer confusion in both the computer and the printer.

Go to "Printers and Faxes" or "Devices and Printers" and try printing a test page by right clicking on the icon and choosing printer properties. This will better define if the problem is something wrong with the printer or connection OR if it is a software issue.

If there is something wrong with the printer, you should get a error message describing the error.

Does the printer have a blinking orange light after you give the print command? Then there is an error in the printer. If you have documents in the print queue, delete them. Remove the printer cable. Shut the printer down, shut the computer down. Reconnect the cable and turn everything on again.
If there is still a problem there might be something wrong with your printer.

If you don't have a blinking light after the print command on the printer, then try changing the printer cable. If not working, try another USB port. If still not working, reinstall the printer.

Losing half of top line when printing


Label definition in printer driver may need adjustment. Try calibrating printer, printer on solid green light, hold down feed key & release after light blinks 4 times, (blinks once, twice, three times then 4 times) Download the Zebra setup utility and use it to configure printer.

The printer won't print anything and the on/off light blinks


you can unplug it for a long period of time and plug it back in and try it. Also, try using a can of compressed air to blow out any debris. Also, check HP's site under you model to make sure you can replace one cartridge without replacing the other.
Otherwise you may have a mechanical issue the would require professional repair, I think that model is about 6 years old and you would probably be better of buying new.
