If you are having issues after installing the new cartridges , then perform the following steps.

unplug the power adapter and remove both the cartridges and then power on the printer , look for the power light. if it does not blink then .
install the black cartridge first and then try to print , if it prints fine its ok. then remove the black cartridge and then put the color one in and then try printing or copying .

if it doesnot print with any either black/ color then you have to replace that particular caratridge..

lemme know once u r done....

Ink indicator keeps on blinking even with new ink cartridge.


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.

Ink cartridge installed but cartridge light continues to blink


Have you only replaced the magenta cartridge, or have you also tried the print head. A bad print head can cause the ink to read as empty or clogged.

Blinking orange light on hp 932c


Solution

  1. Check to ensure that the top access door is firmly closed.
  2. If the light continues to blink, open the top access door. When the top access door is opened, the print cradle moves so the yellow arrow on top of the cradle points to a drawing of a cartridge. Each drawing describes a symptom.

Solution two:


  1. Turn the printer off. Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  2. Wait 30 seconds. Plug in the power cord to the wall outlet. Plug in the power cord to the back of the printer.
  3. Turn the printer on.
Solution three:

The print cartridge carriage is stuck.

Solution

1. Open the top access door on the printer.

2. Remove the ink cartridges.

3. Turn the printer off, then on again.

4. Replace the ink cartridges.

5. Close the top access door.

Solution Four:

Issue

The 2-Sided Printing Module is installed incorrectly, not at all, or the back access door is unlocked or open.

Solution

1. Turn the knob on the rear access door of the printer counter-clockwise, and remove the door.

2. Insert the module into the back of the printer.

3. If the lights remain on, remove the 2-Sided Printing Module by pressing in the buttons on the ends of the unit.

4. Re-install the 2-Sided Printing Module by pushing the unit back into the printer without pressing the buttons, until it snaps firmly into place.

Print cartridge


This may sound simple, but did you remember to remove the tape covering from the ink cartridge before installing it? If so, run a self-test and let me know the results:

1. Turn the printer ON.
2. Press and hold the POWER button.
3. Press the RESUME button FOUR times.
4. Release the POWER button.

You should get a nicely printed self-test. If it fails, there may be other troubleshooting methods we can employ.
I hope this helps!

All lights are blinking, printer doesn't work. What does this mean?


This problem occurs for two reasons: the front panel cover was not installed or the ink cartridge access door was not closed before plugging in the all-in-one.
The front panel overlay must be correctly installed before the power cord is plugged in. Follow the steps below to correct the problem:
Disconnect the power cord.
Lift the scanner4.gif lid and carefully line up and install the front panel overlay.
Plug the power cord in.

let me know if this solves your problem wendy.
