I have replaced black ink on a hp deskjet 960c and the red light keeps flashing


Hi,

I see you replaced the Black in on your HP printer but the light keeps on blinking still.

Make sure that you remove the silicon film from the ink cartridge before installing in the printer, if that file is not removed the contact to the printers ink will not detect the ink cartridge at all.

Also try to remove all the ink cartridges and install all of them at the same time , this is to reset the printer from detecting all the printer ink cartridges.

I hope this helps

Have hp 450c orange cartridge light keeps blinking checked all cartridges only black cant get ready light to come on 3x so light keeps blinking.took out black cleaned it but still wont blink ready


In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.
Activate head cleaning before a test is taken . Sometimes it is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the PC command or can be an issue with ink drying or poor ink cartridge contacts. Sometimes the power supply unit must be checked as a poor SMPS unit can deliver low voltage and cause issues to the printer function. Check all the leads and connections of the mother board , the tags to the ink cartridge. Also check the mechanical settings of the ink cartridge , if jammed or tight remove motor and manually free the drive before it is set back.

My Dell AIO printer keeps blinking right ink cartridge incorrect.Exclamation light keeps blinking too.


Try going to the Dell site and searching for that printer model. Then see if you need to have both ink cartridges populated and filled with ink, to make it work.

You might also clean the contacts on the ink cartridges, to make sure the printer knows you have both cartridges in the printer, even though they're not both filled with ink.

It just might require both to be filled, before it will print for you.

See what Dell says.

Good luck.

My printer says E 5


Try reseating the ink cartridges. The error references to either reseating or refilling the ink cartridges.
Since you have mentioned that it worked before with only black cartridge, try reseating both and check.

HP 932 RED LIGHT STAYS ON


The light you describe is the ink light.
When that light is blinking, try this.

Turn on the printer. Open the front cover and look at the carrier for the ink cartridges. There is a white arrow right above the latch for the color cartridge.
Once the carrier stops moving, the white arrow should be pointing to a symbol which represents the problem (the reason the light is blinking.) Examples are low ink black, low ink color, sick black ( replace ) , sick color ( replace ).

IF you have just replaced your black cartridge, you might need to replace your color cartridge too.
This printer will not work without both ink cartridges installed and full.
You cant print with a full black and an empty color cartridge unfortunately, even if you only want to print black.

Hope this helps!
