Question about HP DeskJet 940c InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My printer is not working properly. The light on the left (Amber Light, I guess this is what it is called) is blinking, but there is no paper stuck in the printer. How do I get it to stop and keep printing?

    The red light on the left keeps blinking. The cartridges seem fine (was printing photos before this started and they looked very nice), the black cartridge is new. No paper is stuck. I've tried turning it on and off and cancelled all docs, restarting the computer.

The amber lights are blinking next to the printer icons and exclamation points on top of the printer. How do i get that to stop so my print job can go through?


There 3 light on the printer that able to indicate to user when problem occur.

1st button light blink rapidly = the printer may be out of paper, so load more paper and press the 1st button itself to continue. Or may be paper jam is occur, so clear the paper jam and press the 1st button light itself to continue.

If 1st button light blink slowly = mean the cartridge carriers are stuck, so raise the scanner unit and remove any object blocking the path of the cartridge carrier, make sure the cartridge are closed and installed properly, then lift the scanner unit, gently push the scanner support towards the cartridge carriers, and carefully lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed. After that press the 1st button itself to continue.

If 2nd LED light blinking = the color cartridge need to be replaced soon.

If 2nd LED light is ON = the color cartridge need to be replaced immediately.

If 3rd LED light blinking = the black cartridge need to be replaced soon.

If 3rd LED light is ON = the black cartridge need to be replaced immediately.

Hp 2015dn paper jam light on solid,won;t print


This is a widely known problem with this printer and means the formatter board needs to be replaced. Save yourself the cost and headache of repairing and move on. The problem initially began as a random situation where I would have to turn the printer off and back on to get it to print.This eventually progressed to the problem you all are reporting which is the amber toner and jam lights on. I replaced the formatter board on mine and after one month the problem returned with the new formatter board needing replaced as well.

Of course, HP acts as if they've never heard of the problem. This company's integrity and quality has gone from number 1 to dead last.

Light keeps flashing red,amber, green


If you turn off the printer and turn it back on, do you get any noises, ie motor noises, or does it instantly go to all lights flashing?
If you get no noises this usually indicates a board fault and you should look for a new printer.

Troubleshooting on hp printer/scanner/copier


Hi,

This looks like either there is an paper jam or carriage jam on the unit,

Check the rare access door weather there is a paper jam.

Remove the cartridges and try moving the carriage( the cartridge hold) left to right and right to left and check if its moving freely.

After these try disconnecting the power cable without turning off the unit and hold the On button for 15 secs and then plug in the power cable while your hold the on button.

This should probably fix the issue.

Please do let me know if there is still an issue.
