Scrap it. I suspect your 810C has the same problem as mine - it's buggered. I have done everything to address the blinking cartridge light but nothing works. I've come to the conclusion that it's a mechanical/electrical problem and that my 810C, which has worked pretty well, bar the odd tantrum, for many years now, has come to the end of its life. Very possibly its demise has been hastened by the use of remanufactured cartridges, a practice I will continue as long as the real McCoys are such a rip-off.

I put a new colour cartridge in to my 810C printer but the colours all came out wrong. How do I clean the ink jets please?


I am not sure what you mean by colors come out wrong. However, if the new cartridges are refills, there is the possibility that the refillers damaged the cartridges.

Try this: remove the color cartridge from the printer and check the bottom of the cartridge for ink blobs. Blot any ink around the silver screen-like area. Try not to touch that silver area. If there is no ink there, reinstall the cartridge and go to the Printers and Devices where your printer should be listed. Right click on the printer and select printer properties which will bring up a properties window where you select the Services window and select "clean the print cartridges" (this is Windows 7 but XP and Vista are not much different) Select ok and wait for the printer to go through its gyrations. Don't select "prime" at this time. When the printer finishes, try printing again. If the colors are still messed up, you could return to the clean selection and select "prime" in the next window (not likely to help).

If these don't work, you can run the clean cycle a couple of times, but chances are the cartridge has failed inside, allowing the inks to run together. Whether it is new or refilled, just return it for a replacement.

HP 810C. Lower of three lights winking. Ink cartridges installed. Driver confirmed as O.K. Attempts at printing form queue - now deleted. Will not print. Will not clean or do any maintenance function....


The blinking ink light means that the printer does not recognize one of the ink cartridges. Power the printer off, pull out the power cord, wait for awhile, replug and turn the printer on. If the light no longer blinks, ok. If not, try installing another cartridge pair if you have them available - even if they are old used ones. If the ink light continues to blink with different cartridges or if you don't have any different cartridges, old or new, you have a dilemma. Do you want a new printer or do you want to continue to chase this problem. To chase this problem, get new cartridges and install them (half the price of a new printer). If that works your set, but if not you need to have your printer serviced which is doubtful that it is worthwhile doing so.

Toner light keeps blinking


The inkjet uses ink, not toner. When the light is blinking it indicates something is wrong with one of the cartridges, such as can't find it, not installed, out of ink, improperly installed, printer has died. First thing to try is to disconnect the power (not just power off) for 5 - 10 minutes and reconnect. If that does not resolve it, inspect the cartridges and reinstall them. If you have another printer that uses the same cartridges, try the cartridge in it. if not, get another set of cartridges and install them. If none of these steps resolve the problem, chances are that the printer is the problem and is probably not worth spending additional time on it.

Ink cartridge


Is the ink cartridge now unstuck? Are the cartridge ports free of any dried ink, etc. are new cartridges in place? Try turning your printer off for several minutes and then turning it back on. Let us know if this does not work.

Flashing ink refill light


Sometimes refilling them over and over doesn't work well. Once ok...but i suggest that you buy a new cartridge. I know that they are expensive but it will help. Also take some Rubbing alchohol and a q-tip...clean inside where the cartridge sits..that will help...this is for sure a bad ink cartridge
