New Ink Cartridge not working

When I put the new color cartridge in the cartridge light keeps flashing constantly. When I put the empty cartridge back the printer works fine. Do I assume my $60 cartridge is faulty or is there a simple solution to this. Can anybody help please?

    I had the same problem and purchased a remanufactured set of color and black & white instead of the HP brand and it prints now. It is not a very accurate color for pictures, but it works. I think this is an old printer. Is there some time of cleaning maintenance I can run on this printer?

When i turn the printer on the ink light and paper light are flashing back and fore and nothing works


You should check your cartridges. If one of them is empty, usually the printer won't print. Your cartridges have chips on them, and that chip determines how much you are going to print. Usually, when both lights are flashing, and nothing works, it has something to do with the cartridges.
If that is not the case though, please leave me a comment, as I would love to help!

Do I need to replace my empty tri-color cartridge just for the brand new black one to work? My light keeps flashing and nothing will print.


Well you need tio give us a bit morte informationm.

Is the flashing light telling you that the multi-colored cartridge is in fact empty?

Are you using re-filled or third party cartridges? If so, then the printer will block the usage of thes types of cartridges because of the damage they can potenialy do to the print mechinisim.

The ink warning light flashes, and won't go off, even after I've put a new cartridge in. I've unplugged the printer, turned it off and on, plugged the cable back in, and it won't go off.


A blinking orange light means an empty or incorrectly installed ink cartridge. Ensure that the cartridge is not empty or dried out. Also be sure you installed the number 45 black and number 78 tri color cartridges. The 41 tri-color, for example, looks the same but would generate an error. Also, check that the panel in the back, or duplexer if you have one, is seated firmly in the printer as this can generate odd errors.

Check Printer Light Keeps Flashing on C3180 PhotoSmart


No, you do not need 3 cartridges or anything like that. Some cartridges have chips. Yours do not. If the light keeps blinking it means that one of the electrical contacts on the cartridge has blown and now the printer doesn't recognize it. Try printing something, you will get a message "problem with color cartridge" or "color cartridge missing". That means that the printer doesn't recognize it. I suggest you buy a new one. Or, if you have an old one, try putting it in and see if the light still blinks.

Hp lj 2500 flashing yellow light


The yellow-print-cartridge
light is blinking, and the
printer stops printing.
 The print cartridge is
empty or missing.
 The printer cannot
detect the print
cartridge correctly.
1. Reinsert or replace the print cartridge.
2. If the print-cartridge light is still blinking but the
Attention light is not on, turn the printer off and
then back on.
3. If the problem persists, repeat the above steps
with yellow print cartridges until the error is
resolved.
4. If the problem persists, replace the printcartridge
E-label reader, which is located on the
pressure assembly of the print-cartridge
carousel.

Ink cartridge light keeps blinking


you need to print only in black if that is all the ink you have, and also you need to remove the color cartridge as it still registers in the printer as able to be used, although it is empty or near so. Did you remove the tape over the print head fron the new ink cartridge? Do a print head alignment, or use the toolbox icon to tell the printer that you just replaced the cartridge. Some HP models chip the ink cartridges so even a refill wont register as a full tank and the printer wont print. chip needs to be reset (difficult) or just replaced with a new cartridge.
