Question about HP Officejet H470 InkJet Printer

Open Question

Officejet HP470 refuses to print. The ON/Off light blink green, the continue light blinks orange and the cartridge lights are lit continually. When the printer is turned on you do here a noise like a motor runs briefly. Also, a message displays of the computer "The cartridge is installed". I did note that the print head can not be moved manually form the left position as there are (2) rubber rectangular shaped pads and a plastic piece located between the pads that project up far enough to interfere the print head from moving form its parked position. There are no error messages that are displayed. Followed the recommendations in the instructions to no avail. HELP!! This isn't a cheep printer.

SOURCE: officejet d135 - "Supply Expired" error message

HP, in order to sell more ink, monitors the expiration date of the cartridges installed. Solution is either to buy a new unexpired cartridge from HP or to disable the date monitoring built in to the printer. This latter is done by removing the button cell located inside the D135 printer on the left hand side or by simply slipping a thin piece of plastic between button cell and metal contact. You will no longer have date function on printer, but it won't object to expired cartridges either.

Lexmark e260d printer 4th light orange is continuously flashing. New toner cartridge was installed. Not printing


If the blinking light is on Toner Low (4th light starting from left), press and release the Continue button (green button) to clear the light sequence and continue processing the print job. If the light is still blinking, the photoconductor is almost full and should be replaced.

For further assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support

Lexmark E260dn toner light is still on after changing the toner cartridge


Toner light is ON, I would assume that the light is solid and not blinking. You can press and release to clear the light sequence and continue processing the print job. With the printer turned off, remove the toner cartridge and shake it to extend its life. Check the replacement toner cartridge if it is the one suitable for your region.


If the blinking light is on Toner Low, press and release the Continue button (green button) to clear the light sequence and continue processing the print job. If the light is still blinking, the photoconductor is almost full and should be replaced.

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.

One or both print head are defective.Open cover put out color cartridge then close cover.If blinking stops replace color cartridge.If blinking continues put out black cartridge and put in color.If blinking stops replace black cartridge, if not stop replace both cartridges.
