Hi I have a HP Photosmart C4680 that beeps!

Hi---

My HP Photosmart C 4680 is very low on ink. However, before I replace the cartridges, I'd like to know if the beeping sound I get

when I turn the printer on is indicative of another problem. It beeps for about 20 seconds, then the cartridge moves to the center and I can print. I've taken the old cartridges out, and I do know I need to purchase  new one.

So, what is this beeping sound? Again, it started when I would get flash warning from the HP solution center that my ink was low

Thanks

Hello,

 

Try doing a hard reset with the printer. Also, make sure the printer isn't plugged into a surge protector. 

 

Hard Reset:

Unplug the power cord from the printer and wall

Take out the toner/cartridges

Wait 30 sec

Plug the power cord back into the printer and wall (Make sure the printer is plugged into the wall and not a surge protector)

Insert the toner/cartridges back into the printer

 

Let me know the outcome
