I'm trying to replace the print cartridges in my HPC4200 printer

    To IrishDruid, thanks for your response. I did have the instruction manual. I tried it again the next day. The print cartriges did not align on the right side as they should have and so I didn't see them. The second day I spotted them half-way across, so I pushed them to the right and replaced the black cartridge.

    It's usually something simple and something I'm not seeing or doing wrong. I'm not very technical and not always aware of everything that I should be. Thanks again.

SLOW PRINTER


You have a cartridge problem.

This condition is typically caused by one of the cartridges failing. Try removing the black cartridge and printing (not copying) a test page. If this prints at near normal speed the black cartridge is at fault and should be replaced. If the printer still prints slowly then put the black cartridge back in and remove the color cartridge, then print a page. Replacing the cartridge that causes the slow printing with a fresh cartridge will resolve the issue.

HP Office jet printer slow


I think it's that black cartridge!

The problem you've described is typically caused by one of the cartridges failing. Try removing the black cartridge and printing (not copying) a test page. If this prints at near normal speed the black cartridge is at fault and should be replaced. If the printer still prints slowly then put the black cartridge back in and remove the color cartridge, then print a page. Replacing the cartridge that causes the slow printing with a fresh cartridge will resolve the issue.

Assuming the cartridges are original HP (not re-manufactured or refilled) you can check the warranty status by CLICKING HERE

Let me know how you make out.

How do I get my Lexmark X2600 to print? I got a message telling me that I would soon have to replace the black ink cartridge, and it just stopped printing. I put a new cartridge in, and it still will not...


Try to re-seat the cartridges into the printer. Remove both cartridges from the printer > re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds > when the printer printer turns on, firmly re-insert the cartridges into the printer. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
You can also try to manually clean the cartridge nozzles. Wipe the cartridge print nozzles with a slightly moistened soft cloth to clean it from possible dirt and clogs. Re-insert the cartridges and try to print a document again.

The printer's black ink cartridge won't print without the Tri-color print cartridge


Most of the HP printers are designed to allow printing onlywhen all cartridges are installed and
have ink.
Install a new tri-color ink cartridge and printing will continue as usual.
My printer, which is HP, does the same thing as yours, until I replace the empty cartridge,
printing stops.

Teardrop light is flashing yellow. Green clock at left is lighted. Control panel says everything is ready but it won't print. There is no paoper jam.


Hi there,

This light that is showing the Print Cartridge Status. Here is what you can do:

If the light is on and not flashing: Check to see if a print cartridge is low on ink. If a print cartridge is low on ink, consider replacing the print cartridge. If neither print cartridge is low on ink, press the Resume button. If the Print Cartridge Status light remains on, turn off, then turn on the printer.

If the light is on and flashing: Verify that the correct print cartridges are installed.

Follow these steps:
1. Open the printer's top cover, remove the black or photo print cartridge, then close the cover.
2. Do one of the following:
  • If the light is flashing: Open the top cover, replace the print cartridge you removed, then remove the tri-color print cartridge. Go to step 3.
  • If the light is off: There is a problem with the print cartridge you removed. Go to step 3.
3. Manually clean the print cartridge.
After cleaning the print cartridge, reinsert it into the printer. If the print cartridge status light continues to flash, replace the print cartridge.if the light is on and not flashing. Check to see if a print cartridge is low on ink. If a print cartridge is low on ink, consider replacing the print cartridge.

Replace color cartridge


Access your printer properties and try preforming a print head or printer cartidge clean and on the machine try the print cartridge aligniment procedure.
If after you try both of those I suspect there is an issue with the print head.
If that is the case an ink jet printer is not worth repairing.

Color Cartridge Failure


You know, I'm not going to read the other solution. I know 100% FOR SURE, when a cartridge fails, it is dead and there is nothing you can do about it, but there is a good side. HP ink cartridges have a year warranty. Call them and tell them it failed, they'll send you a new one!
