Sorry, that 13-year old model only prints. Newer models referenced as "All-in-One" will include scanning as one function.

The HPs are notorious for not recognizing the cartridge after a few replacements in my experience. On the information screen is it saying the cartridge is not in or ink is low? You can have the machine, through the menu, do a cleaning of the heads. If this does not work then I have a low tech solution to fix the seating of the cartridge. I put a wadded up paper towel in the door to hold the cartridges firmly in place and the printer reads it fine then. I do have a different model than what you are showing but there has to be a way.

you sir have a problem. throw it out, there is nothing you can do

HP DeskJet... | Answered on Sep 01, 2012

Hi There

You do not mention what operating system you use. If it is Windows Vista or Windows 7, it could be a driver problem causing this (you probably worked wit XP before). The HP 970 Printer is the best part of 10 years old, and therefor drivers might be difficult to get hold of.

By the way, the HP 970 range was one of the truly better printers HP has ever made.

Here are the download links:
Windows XP

Windows Vista

Windows 7 32-bit

All the best

I would try a genuine hp cartridge just to check. it sounds as though there is no air in the cartridge giving the effect of sucking on an almost empty bottle of water. Usually attributed to lousy compatable cartridges.. i bet with a genuine one in there all will be well.
