Back to HP forum 5 total posts. It sounds like it’s failed. Any help would be appreciated. Thu Mar 14, 1: You probably do have to have a black cartridge in it, but that may not be the only problem. Test with computer off turn on power to printerpress and then release resume–that should cause the printer to execute a test print–if printer then prints a test page properly, you suspect drivers, a bad cable, or the way the computer communicates with the printer.

HP Deskjet 612C PRINT ERROR
To mataney, You are basically in the new printer market. Thu Mar 14, 3: Why don’t you try and find an empty cartrdige?
Mechanical problems, driver problems due to bit rot, or even something as simple as one or more bad cartridges. You are reporting the following post: Can I use the same cable connection for a newer verison of HP printer or not?
Please try again now or at a later time. You can reuse cablesbut most printers now take USB cables.
HP DeskJet 612C Printing Problem
But thats my immediate take on the matter–others may have some other ideas. We on this forum can go from there.
But failing to get a test page, try test 2. There does not appear to be a paper jam and I tried everything that was suggested on the HP support site, but still does the same thing. I would suspect three probable causes.
In any case – best of luck!! Chipped Canons are still fairly economical using OEM cartridges–but can get super economical if you refill–but that involves a learning curve for you–and simply takes time while some professor of yours is trying to minimise your free time.
Proffitt Forum moderator March 25, 7: OsageApr 15, I have 2 suggestions.

Pritn as Manuchau pointed out, you can still buy HP printers that use those cartridges. After the error message that I receive, paper jams and stays in the printer until I turn it off When the problem occurs power light stays steady on and the resume button light is blinking. This one tip will help you sleep better tonight A few seconds are all you need to get a better night’s rest.
Is there any future in refilling? Thanks for your time and I appologize if my description of the problem is not clear enough – I am by no means computer tech major, so no worries there Test with computer off turn on power to printerpress prit then prlnt resume–that should cause the printer to execute a test print–if printer then prints a test page properly, you suspect drivers, a bad cable, or the way the computer communicates with the printer.
When the usual doesn’t play out the cheap exit is a working printer. Your cheapest fix is to prinr another c on ebay that works so you can slip in the same printer without having to reload any drivers.
