I think ur talking about the black ink cartridge...ideally it should not get stuck but plz check if there is any plastic piece which is blocking it or there is any latch.If it gets stuck frequently its time for u to get a new printer.

Printer lights can can blink for more than one reason, so the solution can vary. These solutions need not be performed in a specific order, but solutions for the most common issues are presented first.
Blinking lights are often accompanied by an error message on the computer screen, which might help determine the solution.

My HP deskjet 5740 will feed the paper through but prints nothing even thought the ink cartriges are full


How long ago was it since you last used it? Inkjet and deskjet printers don't like to sit more than a week or two without you printing anything or they dry up.
Your cartridges may have dried up on the bottom or the part that the cartridge sits in may have dried up. Take a Q-tip dipped in isopropyl alcohol and dab it a few times. Make sure it's totally try before putting your cartridge back in.

HP Deskjet 5740 printer both orange lights are blinking and wont print


  • I replaced both carts with HP brand, no joy.
  • I cleaned the cart/printer connections, no joy.
An interesting aside is that if one or the other cart is removed, the appropriate LED goes out and the other blinks. At least some of the sensing circuitry sees the cart.

Anyone have a schematic of the cart/printer electronics?
