Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I have replaced all cartridges with new one but the black cartridge indicator light in the control panel is still blinking. pls. help me, tnx!
That should be simple. Either, the wrong version ink cartridge or you haven't changed the settings, to make the computer know you have put a new one in. You solve this by the software you have in your computer or some printers have a screen on them and you can do it from there as well.
If its the computer, open the software and click help and search "new cartridge" . it will help u from there.

"All lights blinking and printer not responding" is
indicative of serious ink cartridge issue. Usually when this happens the
printer fails to goes through the motions of the printing process, kind of
stands still with indicator lights just blinking away. This could be as a
result of either of these scenarios.
The Solution is to try an older/another cartridge (doesn't matter if ink
is finished. You must replace cartridge one at a time). If lights stop blinking
it confirms that your cartridge has become incompatible or developed
incompatibility. Also if your printer is the type that can work with only one
cartridge, remove one after the other (closing back the lid/cover) to determine
which in the set (black or color) has become incompatible. At the instance the
incompatible one is removed and you close the lid, the blinking will stop (for
printers that can print with one ink cartridge only). Just replace the
incompatible one and start printing again. In most cases the issue is always
with one cartridge. But if both are affected, you have to replace both. Because
of this type of problem, always keep used cartridges somewhere safe; they come
in handy for this type of troubleshooting.
The electronic panel on the cartridge that makes contact with the cartridge carrier inside the printer is dirty and needs cleaning. This electronic panel is front part of the cartridge with copper "dots".
The Solution is to try to clean this panel with a piece of folded tissue paper soaked in a bit of methylated spirit. Also try to clean the area in the cartridge carrier/holder that makes contact with the cartridge's electronic panel (Usually this is more difficult). If you cannot reach it with your fingers, use a stick or something with tissue wrapped around it. Allow to dry well and return the cartridges, close the cover. The blinking should stop if the electronic panel is the issue. Once the blinking stops the printer will print.
