Question about HP DeskJet 960c InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Desk Jet 960c

Yesterday my printer stopped printing. the orange light keeps flashing. I replaced the ink about a month ago. They are the refill type from office max. There isn't any paper jam. I've looked and taken the back panel off. I've shut off my computer and shut off the printer and un hooked the cables.

I did try through the printer page to have it run a clean cycle but it didn't even do anything. I've also taken out both ink cartridges and put them back in.

What else am I missing.

Thanks

Wade

    My orange light is blinking too. Replaced with refilled toners about a month ago. I had this problem a couple of weeks ago but it seemed to fix itself after a few days off. I really need to print something urgently for tonight. Any help most appreciated.

    Same here. Tried all of the obvous things...removing & replacing the cartridges etc. Guy I just talked with at office max suggested it might be the refills I'm using...that the printer is ethnically pure or something, and balks at the refills. I'm gonna give that a try tomorrow. Meanwhile, I'm open to suggestions.

I have replaced black ink on a hp deskjet 960c and the red light keeps flashing


Hi,

I see you replaced the Black in on your HP printer but the light keeps on blinking still.

Make sure that you remove the silicon film from the ink cartridge before installing in the printer, if that file is not removed the contact to the printers ink will not detect the ink cartridge at all.

Also try to remove all the ink cartridges and install all of them at the same time , this is to reset the printer from detecting all the printer ink cartridges.

I hope this helps

Trying to print and an orange light is constantly flashing, checked ink cartridges and paper jams but no problem there


I have had this same thing happen to my 960c! The ink cartridges were new/full (but must have been faulty). I replaced them with different/new ink cartridges, which solved the problem.

Another idea is to uninstall the printer and install it once again.

Good luck!

Hp laser jet 1320 stop printing


Try unplugging the power cord and plugging it back in. Check to make sure that there are no paper jams or foreign objects stuck in the rollers. Reseat the toner and make sure the lid is firmly closed.

I have and hpdeskjet 960c printer. The amber light over the symbol for the ink cartridges is blinking. I replaced both the black and color cartridges. The light is still blinking and the printer won't...


open the top cover and allow the print cradle to move to one of the icons this indicates what the problem might be

it either shows that the cartridge is not inserted properly or the incorrect cartridge
or may be low on ink.

remove the cartridge and reinsert

if all else fails replace with new cartridges

You say it stopped working mid-print... possible paper jam? Ink cartridge not clicked in all the way? (they should all line up evenly across the tops).
In control panel->printers and faxes, right click on Canoni960 and choose properties. In maintenance tab try to do nozzle check and print head alignment. In lower right corner is status monitor, click to see if any useful information in there.
