Printer cartridge container doesn't stop in the middle
My printer is hp deskjet 3940. When the ink that came with the printer ran out, I injected a generic into the cartridge. It printed well on its early printing but later the quality of print deteriorated until such time that it stopped printing. The printer's power indicator just kept on blinking. I tried to clean it by wiping the cartridge's printing head and the roller. After that the cartridge carrier never stop in the middle when the printer cover is lifted when it is supposed to stop. The power indicator just kept on flashing.

Re: printer cartridge container doesn't stop in the...
It appears that the injection may have been lethal, it was still using the ink that it carries in its tubes then it mixed with the injection and is now blocked \ faulty. To repair it you could try getting a new set of HP inks.

the most important is to remove all the air from the cartridge that has left inside durring refilling that is why professionals are using special machines that refill in 0 air πρεσυρε using vaccum pump
you can check here a video on how to refill with out any special equipment
I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue.Are you using a factory new ink cartridge? Please consider the following: If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem.Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges. They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead. If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges Don
two things to consider.
1. If the blinking is fast (like more than two blinks per second) then
the printer is damaged. Either the main controller board is fried or
the carriage/ink controller is damaged.
2. if the blinking is slow ( 1 blink per second) this means that either
of your cartridges is busted. remove the black cartridge then close the
top cover. If the blinking stops, then the black ink is the culprit. If
not, replace the black then remove the other cartridge. THis means that
one of your cartridge needs to be replaced.
The "remanufactured" cartridges can cause the printer to stop working by making a electric failure in the printer circuits. Those cartridges should be avoided now that HP makes extremely cheap and fragile circuits, not like the cartridge burner's HP's 600, 700, 800.
some printers share the ink from color to black but you can select if you wants to use only black just go to printer than properies than select to use only black but you probably have to remove the empty color one
