Might have to clean off cartridge contacts and those on cartridge carrier. Use isopropyl alcohol(don't touch nozzles)! and wipe clean.
print test page and/or photo. Align cartridges from maintenance menu and good success......Please rate if it helped. Thank you. Meder's tv service.

The teardrap light imples that your ink cartridge needs replacing or is incorrectly installed. If you have recently replace your incartridge, check to make sure it is properly installed. If it has been a while, your cartidge probably needs replacing.

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.

Printer won't print. "teardrop" light is flashing.


"teardrop" light is Ink level indicator.It is saying you are out of ink or that there is a problem with that cartridge. remove it and inspect it, making sure it is not covered with any tape, and reinsert it. If it still fails, get it replaced. If the new replacement fails, you have a failed printing device, and you need another printer.
