when you connect your printer make sure the cables are in working order and check that they are connected correctly use your manual that came with the Printer to make sure you are starting it correctly(turning it on correctly) then run the CD-Rom and follow the prompts to install, making sure you download the latest drivers if the ones on the CD that came with ur Printer is no good.
you may have to un install first and reinstall it make sure you take the time it takes to install it correctly first time and no short cuts or this could be your problem. (mostly with printers it is driver problems that prevents them from working correctly.

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?
