Power on the machine, open the front hatch as if changing a cartridge. Remove all the cartridges, then lift the locking arm holding the print head in place. Remove the print head and wash under running warm water. Dry it with a soft paper towel and replace it and the cartridges in the printer. Close the hatch and wait for the machine to reset. Hold the resume button until the power light flashes twice - it will do a self clean and test print.

HP 6940 print head jammed.resume light flashing


Welcome to FixYa!

Usually print head/carriage jam is caused by paper jams or previously cleared out paper jams that left a small torn paper inside the printer.

Turn off the printer by pressing and releasing the power button.
After the printer turns off, press the power button to turn the printer on again.
The printer might go through a warm-up period of up to 2 minutes. Lights might flash and the print carriage might move. Wait until this warm-up period is complete. Then try to print a self-test page. If it is able to print, the issue is resolved. (See instructions at the end of this article on how to print a self-test page.)

If the printer does not turn off, clear any paper jam. Press the resume button on the printer front panel. If the paper jam does not clear, continue with this procedure.

Leave the printer turned on, disconnect the power cable from the printer, and then disconnect the USB cable from the back of the printer.

Push the two latch handles on the rear access door of the printer toward each other, and then remove the door. Please refer to the image below.

Remove any paper that is inside the printer by pulling the paper out from the back of the printer.
If the paper jam cannot be removed from the back of the printer, raise the printer cover, remove the paper jam from the front of the printer, and then lower the cover.
Remove the paper carefully. It is possible to damage the printer when removing paper from the front of the printer.

Reconnect only the power cable. If the printer does not automatically turn on, turn it on by pressing the power button.

Again, the printer might go through a warm-up period of up to 2 minutes. Lights might flash and the print carriage might move. Wait until this warm-up period is complete. Then try to print a self-test page. If it is able to print, the issue is resolve. (See instructions at the end of this article on how to print a self-test page.)

If the Power light is blinking and the print carriage is still in a stalled position, continue with this procedure.

With the printer turned on, open the printer cover. The print carriage might move into the access area automatically. Allow it to move to that position.
If the print carriage does not move automatically into the access area, turn off the printer by pressing the power button.

Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer.

Looking in through either the ink cartridge access door or the output paper tray, make sure that no obstructions under or around the print carriage are blocking it from moving.

Make sure that the print carriage can move freely across the width of the printer by gently pushing the print carriage to the left and then to the right. Clear any obstructions.

Remove and reinstall the print cartridges. Make sure that it is properly installed back.
Close the printer cover and connect back the power cord.
Print a self-test page. If it is able to print, the issue is resolve. (See instructions at the end of this article on how to print a self-test page.)

To print a self-test page, make sure the printer is turned on. The USB cable of the printer to the computer must be disconnected to make sure that we are isolating the printer problem.

Press and hold the Print and Cancel button at the same time. Make sure that the printer is loaded with paper. The self-test page will like the image below.

Deskjet 895Cx1 Green and Ornage lights flashing together Problem & solution, please


Please find below the section in the user manual for the printer that tells you what the lights mean. Hope this helps.


Sometimes the lights on the printer signal a problem:

Both lights are off

• The printer is turned off. Press the power button. If you still don’t see the glowing green light, make sure the printer is plugged into a power outlet and that the outlet has power.

Both lights blink
• Paper may be jammed in the printer. Open the front cover and remove any jammed paper. Close the front cover and turn the printer off, then on again. Go to “Clearing a Paper Jam” on page 67.

• The cartridge cradle may be jammed.
Close the front cover, turn the printer off, then on again.
The power light blinks, and the resume light is off
• This is normal behavior when the printer is receiving data, printing, or waiting for ink to dry.

The power light glows steadily, and the resume light blinks
One or both of the inkjet printer cartridges may not be seated properly, or you may have forgotten to remove
the tape from a new inkjet printer cartridge. Open the front cover. Remove both inkjet printer cartridges. Holding the black plastic sides of the inkjet printer cartridge, check to be sure the tape has been removed from the print head. Then replace the inkjet printer
cartridges in the cartridge cradle. Make sure each inkjet printer cartridge is pressed all the way into the cartridge
cradle. If an inkjet printer cartridge feels at all loose, it is not properly seated. For instructions, go to “Insert Print Cartridges” on page 5.

• The front cover may be open. Make sure it is closed.
• There may be no paper in the lower paper tray. Load paper.
• The printer may need to reset. Press and release the Resume button.
• Your computer may be low on memory. Try restarting it.
• Turn the printer off, then on again. (This resets the printer.)
• Repeat the printing process.
Sometimes problems disappear when you try to print your document again.
• Printing problems can often be caused by errors in your applications.

If you can print from the SimpleText or TeachText application but not from another application, it’s probably a problem with that application. Contact the publisher of that application for help.

• Restart your computer.

Installed a lexmark z12 printer but not the power light but the light next to it keeps flashing and it wont print


  1. Turn the power OFF.
  2. Open the front cover.

  4. If it does not, close and reopen the cover:
  5. Remove the color print cartridge.
  6. Close the cover.
  7. If there is no error indicated by flashing lights, the color cartridge has short-circuited.
  8. However, if you continue to get an error, repeat steps 1-3, and then go to step 9.
  9. Remove the black print cartridge and reinsert the color cartridge.
  10. If there is no error indicated by flashing lights, the black cartridge has short-circuited.
  11. If you continue to receive an error in both cartridge scenarios, both print cartridges have short-circuited.
