For the HP 940c, there is only one light to indicate a possible low ink cartridge. The LED above the cartridge symbol (the only one without a button) will flash. (Note: this LED is the second from the left.) When you see the error code, open the printer's top cover. If the error is a low ink issue, the LED will stop blinking.

With the cover open, the cartridge carrier will move until the yellow arrow lines up with an icon on the printer itself. These five icons are in order from left to right (as you look at the cartridges) : tri-color ink cartridge problem, black ink cartridge problem, tri-color ink low, black ink low and cartridges OK. If both cartridges are low, replace the one indicated by the arrow. Then the cartridge carrier will move to indicate the other cartridge is low. (If only one has a problem, after you replace it, the carrier will move to the cartridge OK symbol.)

If HP offers the full-feature software for your OS, then install the software. Use the HP Deskjet Toolbox to get exactly which cartridge needs to be replaced without needing to be ready to replace both (or to monitor your ink level (approximate ink level)).

The manual for the Deskjet 940c is available as a PDF from HP: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DocumentIndex.jsp?contentType=SupportManual&lang=en&cc=us&docIndexId=64179&taskId=125&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=35985 .

I hope this helps.

Hello, I was using a 940C till quite recently and had no probs; however I was using USB to connect. Perhaps your LPT cable isn't fully wired and so bi-directional comms don't work, ie status info isn't received from the printer, tho' am only speculating. Anyway, could you use USB to connect or try a different LPT cable, maybe a known good or more modern one...worth thinking about anyway! Good luck, Nicam49 p.s. don't forget to vote :-)

Why can't I see the ink levels on my computer anymore. we just installed windows 7-64 bit. I don't know if black ink or color ink is out on my hpdeskjet 940c. It used to tell me.


You may have to update your printer drivers, try the HP website, follow links for downloads and support. Enter your printer model and operating system as you go. See if there's a driver update for you.

the moving ink frame is probably pointing to a symbol such as replace color ink( three dots on ink cartridge picture). Replace color ink. You are probably printing your black and white documents with colored ink--always select black or greyscale.

How do you check the ink levels of the cartridges on a hp deskjet 940c


Hi,
If the ink level is low in a print cartridge, the Print Cartridge Status light stops flashing when the printer’s top cover is opened. When you open the panel the ink cartridges slide to the center , as far as checking the ink level find and right click on the printer icon, click properties, and find ink cartridges and ink levels.
Thanks
Shereena.

Sorry to state the obvious, but you never know. Did the blue tape covering the head and contacts get removed from the cartridges?
