The problem is most likely an "old" cartridge, even if it was new in the box. Printed on the box is an "install by" date which is 18 months from the manufacture date. If you do not have the box you can check the warranty date on the cartridge as shown here. The warranty date is two years from the date of manuacture, six months beyond the "install by" date.

A fresh cartridge will almost certainly solve your problem. When buying new cartridges I would look for at least six months remaining before the "install by" date.

When storing cartridges for long periods keep them in a cool place and leave them standing upright as they would be hanging on a store display shelf for maximum life.

Hello,


This is Vikram Kumar Thumu from India-Hyderabad. I have seen your issue and I would like to provide my solution on the issue.

Well, this is the issue that could happen with either with Printer Software or with Printer Ink cartidges that could be out of ink or very low in ink...


To isolate and to resolve the issue I recommend you to perform below solution. I hope that this will fix the issue for you.

Solution 1: Hard Reset Printer
---------------

1. Turn OFF printer
2. Disconnect Printer from Computer.
3. Remove the Printer Power Cable from wall outlet and then try to remove the ink cartidges from Printer.
4. Wait for a minute.
5. and then reseat the Printer ink cartidges and then Connect the Printer cable to the Computer and then Power ON Printer.

This should generally fix the issue. However, if the issue still persists then I recommend you to proceed further solution on the issue.

Soltution 2:
---------------

Right click on the Printer icon of HP Deskjet D4100 Series and then select the option " online " and then press F5 key in the keyboard. to effect the changes.

Solution 3:
---------------

Try to print a Cartidges Test page from Printer Properties to check the ink cartidges ink status.

if found issue with ink cartridges then replace them else try to uninstall and reinstall the Printer software.

This should resolve the issue. If the issue still persists then I recommend you to contact HP CHAT SUPPORT or HP PHONE SUPPORT team or HP EMAIL Support on this issue. They can help you further to resolve the issue for you.

If you love it (3820) better learn how to clean the service station or it will shear the gears and be done.
See my post under the blinking light problem with 3820s.
I really like the printer and wish someone had told me this before mine broke. No answer for your question, but HP.com should have manuals as a pdf download.
