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.

My hp deskjet 6540 prints ok at first but then halfway down the page the black turns brown, then red!


Please check your ink cartridge. If it is old change it. Also clean the nozzles. After doing this print the test page.

It says E in the small display screen it has and


Turn the printer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Reconnect the AC power.
Turn the printer on.
Start the HP Support Tool software on your computer, and check the ink-levels on the printer -- no ink means no printing.

Do the lights blink in a specific, repeating, pattern?

Not printing


If you are certain you installed the ink cartridge correctly then it sounds like the cartridge sensor has failed. This is fairly common with inkjet printers, give HP a call, it may still be under warranty:
