Question about HP DeskJet 1120cse InkJet Printer
There can be a few causes for the ink light to blink. 1 - the cover isn't well shut. open and close it, and check for any obstructions. 2 - you're out of ink. let's assume you have this option covered, but if you want to check, look for the yellow indicator arrow on the cartridge. 3 - the carts don't sit right, or have a bad connection due to dried ink on the contacts. Take a damp cloth and gently wipe the contacts on the printer side till you get most of the ink off. Next, take the carts, and submerge them in hot water(1-2 mm high) so that only the contacts are in the water. Let the water dissolve the ink for a few minutes, take the carts out, give the contact area a few more wipes, wipe them dry, and try inserting them into the printer again. If you want to check with new parts, but rightly don't want to waste the money, try borrowing. Hope this helped

Please see web page: www.glassmoyer.net/HP2000C. Regardless if carts have ink or not, they can be expired and therefore rejected by printer default software - (not printer drivers). This is internal printer software, the printer's OS for lack of better words. Suggest you try a set of auto-reset chip cartridges, shown on web page above. Email me if interested from link on page. I repair 2000C's and offer fully refurbished ones as page will show.

SOURCE: Remove and check color cartridge
the problem is the little poorly designed metal thing that is holding up the ink cartridge get's stuck between the cartridge and the printed circuit and it brakes the circuit.must have been some **** drawering on a napkin that came up with that one.wasted a nice unit for that two cent piece of metal.

I had the same problem and couldn't figure it out until I found this on the web - I changed the DEP setting and now I can print just fine. Hope this helps you too!!

I just figured out my issue. It had to do with DEP − Data Execution
Prevention. I had remembered that I was fooling around with this a couple
weeks ago and had changed it to "Turn on DEP for all programs and services
except those I select" in which I had Windows Explorer checked. I just got
done selecting the original which states "Turn on DEP for essential Windows
programs and services only", rebooted, and now I can print again to my hp
The DEP can be found under control panel−>system−>Advanced Tab−>Performance
Settings−>Data Execution Prevention Tab
Hope this helps.

If you are sure that the cartridge you are installing is the correct cartridge for the printer, then there must be something wrong with the cartridge, if you still have the old one, install it and see whether the same problem persists or not. If the problem persists, then clean the contacts (dotted golden contacts) and on the cartridge using a soft brush/cotton dipped in alcohol/acetone/spirit. After they're dried, reinstalled it. But if there's no similar problem with the old cartridge, then the new cartridge might be a defective cartridge. You better get another replacement.
If you need further help, let me know.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Tips for a great answer:
Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer
cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you
printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where
the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer
turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document
again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print
cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues
with your model:
From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks.
Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print
After printing the test page, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If problem continues,
please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.
