Flashing red "check ink" lights and nothing is wrong with ink

I printed two pages and it suddenly had its two "check color/black ink" lights flash red and I cant find a reason for it. I can't print, I can't do maintainance, and I do works. I turn it on and it does this and i press power again and it flashes orange next to power button and i can't do anything but unplug the printer. Holding down power does nothing as well. Please help

Is there a resume button on the printer? If so press this, often printers will allow you to bypass a low ink message and print for a while longer.

I have an hp deskjet 940c. the colored ink is out but there is plenty of black ink however the ink light is flashing and it wont print. do I need to replace the colored ink in order to print something or...


You will need to replace the empty color cartridge to get the flashing to stop.

However you should still be able to print in BW. Check that the applications you are running are set to
BW and not color in the configuration menu. That should permit you to print in BW only.

Can I print if I do not have a color cartridge? I have a new black cartridge and recycled the empty color cartridge without replacing it. Now I get a flashing red light indicating I need ink and nothing...


Yes, go to print properties and find the print in gray scale and it will print in black only. WHen you open the print window. Click on preferences and then look for the color tab. Click on the "print in grayscale" box.

Canon MX850. Print blank after ink changes. The black ink, PGBK-5, ran out so I replaced it with a cheap generic ink tank. But it didn't work, nothing print, not even color copy. I thought the ink is bad...


That is a common problem on all Canon printers, the purge assembly on the right where the printhead parks, has a pump inside and hoses that go to the filters and ink absorbers. When that unit goes out you need a replacement. A job best done in a shop. When the printhead is not cleaned and primed properly you get blank pages no matter how full the inks are.

HP Deskjet 6940 not printing after replacing ink cartridge


My HP Deskjet 6940 is not printing. The color (left) low ink light is dark and the black (right) low ink light is flashing. I replaced the black ink cartridge with a new one but the low ink light continues to flash. No tears/rips in the circuit strip and all the copper leads appear to be connected

Nothing comes out when I print


Epson 777 will not print. No paper jam. Power light flashing; red error light on steady. Paper does not feed; if paper supply is placed deeper in feed, entire paper supply (about 12 sheets) feeds thru as one sheet normally would , without printing.

DELL AIO 922- All in one- Printer won't print


Remove the right ink cartridge (color). You will get an error saying the cartridge is empty, but ignore that. Hit cancel on your printer. Print your job...when your print screen comes up, under preferences check the box for print colors in black and white. Your printer should print just fine without the color cartridge. Ignore the flashing red light.

It will not print.


Hi Greenhorn, Your info is slightly conflicting - I think. As I remember the C60 has just 2 LED's: 1 - Green for Power 2 - Red for Error The third button - Cartridge exchange - has no LED Now it is a while since I looked at a C60 and my brain leaks like a sieve, but that's the way I remember it and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. The error codes I remember are: Printer status - Indicators - Priority Power - Error Power ON condition On - Ink sequence Blink - Ink Cartridge change mode Blink - Data processing Blink - Paper Out *1 - On Paper jam condition *1 - On Ink end (Black) *1 - On -> Blink Ink level low (Black) - Blink-> Blink Ink end (Color) *1 - On -> Blink2 Ink level low (Color) - Blink-> Blink2 Ink end (Black and Color) - On -> On No Ink Cartridge (Black or Color) *1 - On Maintenance request (Ink Overflow Countererror) *1 Alt Blink Alt Blink Fatal error *1 Off On Special setting Blink2 Blink2
