DeskJet 895Cxi Printer ran out of black ink before my summerholliday. Back on job monday I replaced a new inkbox, HP 45 Black. The colour ink was changed just before my holliday. Still the orange light for ink is blinking rapidly and the printer will not start working. I have carefully cleand the yellow spots with a wet towel, but with no success. What more can I do? Kirsten

Follow each of these steps until the problem is resolved:

Remove and then reinsert the print cartridge(s) into the printer.

Clean the print cartridges automatically using the Clean Cartridges option in the Printer Assistant.

Manually clean the print cartridges and print cartridge cradles:

Open the printer cover and wait until the carriage moves to the center.

Press the Power button to turn off the printer.

Disconnect power cord from the back of the printer.

Remove the print cartridges and place them on a piece of paper with the nozzle plate facing up.

Lightly moisten a cotton swab with distilled water.

Clean the face and edges of the print cartridges with the swab. Do not touch the print cartridge ink nozzles or copper contacts.

Wipe the underside of the print cartridge cradle walls using a clean, moistened swab.

Reinsert the print cartridges.

Close the printer cover.

Connect the power cord to the back of the printer.
Press the Power button to turn on the printer.

Calibrate the print cartridges.

If the light is still flashing, replace the print cartridges.

Why does the the left hand orange button flash ?


Here's what worked for me,
Obviously check and make sure you deficiently haven't ran out of ink.

Turn the printer off Remove the colour cartridge
dab the cartridge point with a slightly damp tissue, if ink comes out then turn printer back on without the colour cartridge and try and print some thing in black and white.
turn printer off again and insert the colour cartridge
This strangely will get rid of the blinking light.
If there was no ink reissue on the tissue when dabbed, you'll need to get a new cartridge.

If problems persist I'd recommend getting the printer properly cleaned.
Hope this helps.

YOU SHOULD USE HP 21 BLACK INK CARTRIDGE FOR BLACK PRINTING.IF YOU USE 22 COLOUR CARTRIDGE YOU WILL GET ONLY GREAY PRINTING ONLY.I AM RIGHT?IF YOU USE COLOUR CARTRIDGES MAY YOU WILL GET MONEY LOSE. BECOS IT WILL FINISH EARLY.BLACK INK COST IS LESSTHAN COLOUR INK CARTRIDGES. SO YOU SHOULD BUY BLACK CARTRIDGE FOR REAL BLACK PRINTING.

It ran out of ink, when I replaced the ink cartridge it will not print any more.


It is possible that your new ink cartridge is bad, but it is more likely that your jets on your printer are clogged - and that is preventing the ink from hitting the paper.

You can purchase an ink jet cleaning kit from your local office supply store and try that.

Also, if there is an available ink head replacement kit for your printer, it might be beneficial to go ahead and change that out now too.

Hope this helps!

I thought I was out of black ink, so I replaced the #45 black ink cartridge in my DeskJet 932C printer and it still won't print in black ink.


check the printhead especially the black partition and see if the nostril on the printhead are not damage. does the ink lid blinking if yes clean or replaced the cartridge

The black is printing dark redish brown


Dear friend, your Black Ink Cartridge is Empty thats why your printer is using the Colour Cartridge to produce the Black Colour. This is the reason you are having Dark Reddish Brown colour instead of Black.

My printer will not accept a new black cartridge.


ITS NOT THE BLACK CARTRIDGE!!! Try changing the colour cartridge and see what happens. When a 9600 checks ink levels it does the black ink first, then the colour, if the colour is low it goes back and checks the black again but will constantly give an error message for the black cartridge. Sounds bizarre but try just the black cartridge in with no colour. print a test page in black only, if that does not print then it is a fault. Also make sure the driver is updated!!!
