Question about HP DeskJet 970cxi InkJet Printer
Inkjet cartidge light keeps on flashing tried replacing with new cartridges
still the same
The PCA is held to the carriage /cradle by usually one or more screws. sometimes these loosen over time, so while the contacts on the PCA and the ink cartridge look ok, they're not actually making good contact. try removing the pca from the cradle, and reattaching it, making sure you torque the screws down firmly (but don't crack the board). sometimes a small washer or shim helps to get the board closer to the carts.
many times if you look along the top of the cradle/PCA assembly, you will notice that the gap between the board and the cradle is not uniform. this is usually a dead giveaway, and snugging up the screws will usually fix it.
also if you closely examine the cartridges, you may notice that the indentations or scratches on the contacts aren't uniform which may also point to a skewed PCA.
