I am assumming both new cartridge seal tapes have been removed. I know it sounds like I'm being rediculous but you'd be amazed how may we get into the shop each week that this is the problem. :)

There is a known issue in this model and similar printers that causes a lot of them to fail. A spring tension wire that holds the cartridge in place in the cartridge housing breaks out of its clips where it hinges. If left unchecked it causes the wire to move back and puncture the flex cable that makes contact with the cartridge. There's a photo below that shows the wire broken loose and a photo that shows the resulting damage when left unchecked. If this is the issue, unfortunately the printer is not repairable as the parts aren't sold by HP.

Press the Ink Cartridge Replacement button and check the flash pattern of the control panel lights:
ERROR and POWER lights flash at the same speed = replace black cartridge
ERROR light flashes twice as fast as the POWER light = replace color cartridge

    Error 1203


    hi..

    error 1203 means either or both cartridges have short circuited and needs replacement..

    You will need to perform the following steps to find out which cartridge is defective:


    1. With the printer turned ON, open the front cover and remove both cartridges from the printer.
    2. Power the printer OFF and unplug the power cable for 30 seconds. Plug the power cable back in and turn ON the printer.
    3. If the error message is now cleared from the printer, please perform the "Self-Test" by following the steps below:
    {
    1. Make sure the printer is in “Copy Mode.”
    2. Press the “Menu” button once.
    3. The screen will display “Copy Menu: Copies”.
    4. Press the left arrow button once. The screen will display “Copy Menu: Tools”.
    5. Press the check button once. The screen with read “Tools: Maintenance”.
    6. Press the check button once. The screen with read “Maintenance: Ink Levels”.
    7. Press the right arrow button until the screen reads “Maintenance: Print Test Page”.
    8. Press the check button once. This will start the Self-Test. Once the page has printed, the printer will stop. The test is not continuous.
    }

    If the printer has detected a "Cartridge Missing" error, then please follow the steps given below:

    1. Turn the power OFF.
    2. Open the front cover.
    3. Turn the power back ON. The print cartridge carrier should move to the install position located in the middle of the printer. If it does not, close and reopen the cover:
    4. Reseat both cartridges in the printer and check for the error.
    5. If the error still displays, then 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.

    Problem on a canon 3100


    The Power Light Flashes Orange - Error Codes When an error occurs, the power light flashes orange. The number of orange flashes followed by a long green flash indicates the cause of the problem.
    Two orange flashes: Out of paper, paper jam, or paper feed error
    If no paper is loaded in the auto sheet feeder, or if the paper is not loaded correctly, set the paper correctly and press the Resume button on the printer to continue printing.
    Three orange flashes: Paper jam
    If paper has jammed in the printer, carefully remove the jam and press the Resume button to continue printing.
    Four orange flashes: A tank inside the BJ cartridge (print head) is out of ink
    Replace the empty BJ tank and press the Resume button to continue printing.
    Five orange flashes: BJ cartridge is not installed properly
    Remove and reseat the cartridge correctly. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed. Make sure the blue locking lever is locked down securely.
    Six orange flashes: BJ cartridge (printhead) is not installed
    Remove and reseat the cartridge correctly. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed. Make sure the blue locking lever is locked down securely.
    Seven orange flashes: BJ cartridge (printhead) is defective
    Remove the BJ cartridge and check that the contacts on the cartridge and cartridge holder are clean. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed and reinstall the cartridge. If the error occurs again after you resume operation, you may need to replace the BJ cartridge.
    Eight orange flashes: Waste ink absorber almost full
    The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber to hold the ink that is consumed during print head cleaning. This error indicates that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the Resume button to skip the error so you can continue printing.
    The POWER light flashes orange and green alternately: Service error
    A service error means the printer requires the attention of a qualified technician. Count the number of flashes. (You may be asked this information.)

    The BJC 3000 will flash two different colored lights in a pattern to signal several different errors. From the documentation I have the two colors are orange and green, could those be the colors you see? At any rate here is the code: Two orange flashes: Out of paper, paper jam, or paper feed error. If no paper is loaded in the auto sheet feeder, or if the paper is not loaded correctly, set the paper correctly and press the Resume button on the printer to continue printing. Three orange flashes: Paper jam. If paper has jammed in the printer, carefully remove the jam and press the Resume button to continue printing. Four orange flashes: A tank inside the BJ cartridge (print head) is out of ink. Replace the empty BJ tank and press the Resume button to continue printing. Five orange flashes: BJ cartridge is not installed properly. Remove and reseat the cartridge correctly. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed. Make sure the blue locking lever is locked down securely. Six orange flashes: BJ cartridge (printhead) is not installed. Remove and reseat the cartridge correctly. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed. Make sure the blue locking lever is locked down securely. Seven orange flashes: BJ cartridge (printhead) is defective. Remove the BJ cartridge and check that the contacts on the cartridge and cartridge holder are clean. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed and reinstall the cartridge. If the error occurs again after you resume operation, you may need to replace the BJ cartridge. Eight orange flashes: Waste ink absorber almost full. The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber to hold the ink that is consumed during print head cleaning. This error indicates that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the Resume button to skip the error so you can continue printing. The POWER light flashes orange and green alternately: Service error. A service error means the printer requires the attention of a qualified technician. If you have any more questions let us know otherwise please don't forget to rate this post.
