Hi,

I suspect that the reason that there is no communication between your laptop and printer is because the printer will not switch online. This is further confirmed by one of the flashing lights. This is a standard feature if the built-in diagnostics of most current printers tells it that something is wrong.

Since as you posted/described "I've just put in all new inks and now..." was when the problem started, pls verify:
1. the ink cartridges are seated properly at their assigned slots;
2. most ink cartridges when new have a sticker cover of some sort to protect the electronic/contact pins. Pls verify that they were removed;
3. the cover/panel doors are securely lock in place;
4. verify that the USB cable/connectors are attached;
5. you have installed the correct model of ink cartridges, they are original and not generic/replacements/refills;
6. all others are where they should be, paper in tray, slides extended and nothing out of the ordinary;

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, pls post back with the brand and model of your printer. it might be of further help if you can post your laptop's brand & model as well as the operating system.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

It won't print and the light keeps flashing. I lost the instructions!


The flashing light could indicate either a communication problem between one of your cartridges and the printer, a short in one of the cartridges, paper jam or the cartridge carrier has stalled. Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:

  1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Make sure there are no foreign objects or debris in the feeder.
  2. Open the printer cover and remove both the cartridges.
  3. While the cover is open, ensure there are no paper jams and the cartridge carrier is free from obstructions.
  4. Close the printer cover.
  5. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first.
  7. Close the printer cover and check the light status.
  8. If light on printer is normal, open the printer cover and reinsert the other cartridge. Check the light status.
  9. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the light to flash with a new cartridge. You can also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.
  10. Load some paper. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Black printer ink in HP Printer may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

Error "Put in cartridge" Canon mp370 orange led keeps flashing


This is an issue caused when the cartridges entered are not the one which is usually used by the printer. Check the Cartridge make. It can also be caused of Dirty Cartridge contacts. If that is the problem then you have to clean the Cartridge contact and its connecting socket with alcohol. And most importantly, first check are the Cartridges fully inserted ans set in completely.

Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Check cartridge


Lets try this first:
01. Verify that the unit is switched on.
02. Remove the power cable from the back of the machine.
03. Wait for 1 Minute.
04. Press and hold the POWER button on the front panel.
05. Reinsert the power cable in the backside of the unit.
06. Print a test page. If the problem persists, replace the cartridge.
What causes these symptoms?
These printers have a cartridge check feature. If it detects cartridge contact problems such as dirt, dust or oil on a contact, it will give warnings so the user can correct them by properly seating the cartridge and / or cleaning the contacts.

When a problem is detected, a software 'flag" is set within the printer that should be reset when the user corrects the contact problem.

Due to a firmware error, the 'flag' does not reset until the power is cycled to the printer and repeated warnings are delivered. Power cycling resets the 'flag' and eliminates the warnings.
HP has for years now stated the problem was corrected.

All the BEST

You should install driver first, then connect printer when prompted, then install inks, as it needs the driver to tell it there are full inks fitted, refer to the manual.
