You will need to do the following diagnostic tests to determine the exact cause of the error: · Remove the ink cartridges · Perform the self test (test B below) · Test the ink cartridges A. To remove the ink cartridges: Switch the printer on by pressing the green button. Open the front cover of the printer. The cartridge carrier should move to the center of the opening. Remove both cartridges. If the carrier does not move to the center of the opening, you will need to remove the cartridges by hand. Turn the printer off and remove the power supply cable (the small circular one) from the back of the printer. Open the front cover of the printer. Inside the printer, locate the silver metal carrier bar on which the print carriage slides. Locate the black rubber carrier belt above the carrier bar. This belt has tracks on its inner portion. Grab the top portion of the belt and move it toward the right. As you move this, the ink cartridge carrier will move to the left. Continue to move the belt until the carrier is in the center of the opening. Now pull both cartridges out. B. To perform the self-test: Disconnect both the power cable and the USB or parallel cable. After one minute has passed, plug the power supply cable (the small black circular one) back in. (This step is necessary to reset the printer.) Turn the printer off by pressing the green power button. Hold down the grey paper feed button. Turn the printer on by pressing the green button. After the printer begins to feed paper, release the grey button. Once the paper exits the printer, press the green button to turn the printer off. If the power light blinks twelve times while no cartridges are installed, there is a problem with the printer. If this is a new purchase, you can also exchange the printer at the point of purchase. If the paper went through the printer as if printing was occurring, you will need to do some more testing. Continue as instructed below. C. To test the ink cartridges: Open the front cover and insert only the black ink cartridge. Make sure that you push it back until it snaps into place. Close the front cover. If the light flashes twelve times, there may be a defect in the black cartridge. If not, proceed to the next step. Turn the printer off using the green power button. Hold down the grey paper-feed button. Turn the printer on using the green button. After the printer begins to feed paper, release the grey button. Once the paper exits the printer, press the green button to turn the printer off. If the light flashes twelve times, there may be a defect in the black cartridge. If a page came through with a black line, your black cartridge is working properly. Now you need to take the black cartridge out and perform the same steps with the color cartridge. If the light flashes twelve times, there may be a defect in the color cartridge. If a page came through with colored lines, your color cartridge is working properly. If one of the cartridges is causing the problem, you will need to replace that cartridge. If it is a new cartridge, please exchange it at the point of purchase. Good luck

Hi Try These Solutions:

its quite simple really just turn off your printer then unplug it remove both cartridge's get like a wet baby wipe or something similar let them sit on it for @ 10 secs then just real easy wipe the front piece as well take the same wipe and wipe the heads in the printer well sort of dab them dont wipe let dry for @ 10 secs put them back in (note you will need to move your cartridges over to where load position by hand to and back) run a cleaning test then align test , then print a test page and wah lah works on every one i ever had to do . sort of fix the things u know. have fun hope this eases your day or better. merry christmas to all and to all good night in essence what has occured is the cartridge got shorted and has dried at the surface as well. try it any other tips you need well ask but not to many thats why i quit giving tips like 15000 email a week blow your mind apart

or
Well, I did all that but no dice. But then I noticed that the "protective" tape on the new cartridge had left sticky junk on the cartridge -- but NOT on the print heads, just on a regular part. I got rid of the sticky stuff and voila!

My HP deskjet 3910 printer power lite keeps on blinking and it wont print. how do i fix this? i unplugged printer and then plugged back in and still the same thing.


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 .

Printer wont Print after replacing catridges


1. Make sure the printer is switched on, the old cartridges are still in the printer, and the cartridge cover is closed.

2. Click on Start, Programs (XP: All Programs), Lexmark <Printer Name>, Lexmark <Printer Name> Solution Center.

3. When the Solution Center screen appears, click on the Maintenance button on the left-hand side. (This button is the third from the top and bears a picture of ink drops.)

4. When you see the Install or obtain a New Cartridge option, click on it once. A pop-up displays a brief description of how to physically remove an old cartridge and install a new one.

5. Follow these instructions and click Next. The software will prompt you to confirm whether the cartridges are new or old.

6. For the new cartridge you just inserted, select No, it's new. Important: Make sure the setting for any old cartridge stays on Yes, It is old.

7. Once your selections have been made, click OK. The program will want to run the alignment for any new cartridges you installed. This applies whether you changed one or both cartridges (in the case of printers that can hold two cartridges). An alignment screen with a red and white bull's eye will appear.

8. Make sure the cartridge cover is closed and that there is paper in the printer.

9. Then click the Print button on the alignment screen. A sheet of paper will print from your printer with a series of arrows and numbers on it, with one set of solid bars above them. You should see four groups of lines, unless you have a single cartridge. If you have a single cartridge, you will only have one set of lines.

10. In each group, locate the arrow that looks the most solid. It may help to circle the number under each arrow you choose as you go along.

11. On your screen, you will see an area where you can enter the alignment values. When you have identified all the numbers, select those same numbers for each group on your screen, using the up and down arrows next to each value for A, B, C, and D (or A if you have only one cartridge).

12. When all the numbers have been changed to reflect the chosen numbers on the printed alignment page, click OK. The cartridge installation procedure is complete.

13. You can now exit from the Solution Center.

922 All-inOne ink Jet printer doesn't print


Lots of luck. I couldn't even get the printer to load the software or install the hardware. I was helped by Dell's tech support (Dell has one of the best tech support programs that exists, in my opinion) for at least 4 hours without any good results. They sent me a replacement for a replacement and I finally got the printer and the software to show by installing it differently. Now it will not print, and, like you, the light to the power button blinks all the time and the printer states that there is no color cartridge installed, even though I have re-installed the new trial cartridge sent by Dell several times. I am going to purchase a new Canon Printer.
