Colour ink cartridge empty but the on off light and red ink light flashes alternately and the carriage will not move to allow access to remove the empty cartridge.

hello, are you sure its not the error light that is blinking alternately with the power light, or is ink light indicator blinking , and just the power light blinking. i would first problably pull the power cord. then plug back in, and try again. the alternating error light and power light would be inkjet service, maint or waste pads are full, as far as the other error, i looked it up, and that error not coming up, unless there is something else going on. maybe cover for ink cartridge is caught, and not allowing printer to cycle.

2 red lights are blinking!!!!!

is both the light blink the same time or blink alternate ? if blink the same time, it's probably a fatal error..
if blink alternately then the waste ink counter need to be reset and the waste ink pad need to be replaced.

both light are blinking at the same time or blinking alternatively ?
if both blinking same time, it's a fatal error.. means it could be something wrong with the carriage or board or encoder belt...
if the light blink alternatively, it means the waste ink counter need to be reset and ink pad need to be replaced.

Replace ink cart and amber light still blinks

Usually if the Amber light is blinking with a new cartridge, that cartridge has bad electronics.

Try replacing the cartridge with another or the old one, if the light goes out it was just a bad cartridge.

The ink light flashes when the top cover is open...check the switch that tells the printer when the cover is closed.

HP 932 RED LIGHT STAYS ON

The light you describe is the ink light.
When that light is blinking, try this.

Turn on the printer. Open the front cover and look at the carrier for the ink cartridges. There is a white arrow right above the latch for the color cartridge.
Once the carrier stops moving, the white arrow should be pointing to a symbol which represents the problem (the reason the light is blinking.) Examples are low ink black, low ink color, sick black ( replace ) , sick color ( replace ).

IF you have just replaced your black cartridge, you might need to replace your color cartridge too.
This printer will not work without both ink cartridges installed and full.
You cant print with a full black and an empty color cartridge unfortunately, even if you only want to print black.

Hope this helps!
