Ink cartridges do not slide into view when I open the top with the printer turned on

You have a bad sensor on the lid that detects when it is open or a short on the board that is stopping it from sensing the lid open or stopping the motor from positioning the carriage as it should. If this unit is over 3 to 4 years old I would replace the unit instead of wasting time with it as the repair will most likely cost more than a new printer will.

The carriage on my 812

Lift the Flat Bed Scanner up so that you can find the Cartridges Inside.
Remove the Cartridges from the Printer.
Move the Cartridge Carrier Back and Forth as fast as you can!
Replace the Cartridges back to the Printer!
Good Luck!!!!

I just replaced both cartridges


If the cartridges are not moving, it could be an indication of a print head stepper motor problem. The stepper motor moves the print head assembly (print head and ink cartridges) back and forth across the paper.

Wipe the bar on which the print head travels. The motor may not be able to drive the print head through the accumulated gunk. Use a soft cloth and distilled water.

Hope this helps.

My document will not print even after changing

Does the printer go through the motion of paper coming out when you press print. If it does and still no paper then the print heads may be the issue. Sometimes they do not come on the ink catridges. given how old the printer is proll better to replace it. If it doesnt go through the motion then its a software issue and need that fixed maybe by uninstalling and reinstalling.

My 812 c only prints black and magenta. I put in a

The cartridge may be defective, but before returning it, try cleaning the electrical contacts on the cartridge and the printer.
Use a q-tip and distilled or bottled water.
Do not touch the part of the cartridge where the ink comes out, just the electrical contacts (dots) on the cartridge, and the contact points in the printer that they connect to.
After cleaning the cartridge, put it back in. If you still only get one color, replace the cartridge.
If the replacement cartridge does the same thing, call HP tech support.
If the replacement works, call HP and get them to replace the defective cartridge.
