I have a like-new 7110 printer with the original 4 setup cartridges. However, the black one (932) keeps "flashing". I have done numerous on-off cycles. It still flashes. I cannot initialize the printer. There seems to be some procedure that can be run to bypass or reset the printer, according to my searches. A private message would be just fine. Thank you. LGBU
Thank you so much for your prompt reply. I tried what you mentioned before and tried it again when I saw your response. However, the alert light is still on. I shook the Black (932) setup cartridge. I could hear liquid sound. There seems to be ink inside. The contact seems clean and I wiped it anyway. Still no progress. Do have have a dead setup cartridge?
Any suggestion to bypass this "setup stage" . Looking forward to hearing from you again.
I think I have solved my own problem (HP 7110) In my case, the printer could not pass 'initialization', complaining about the black setup cartridge (932). I tried all the reset stuff, which did not work.
Out of desperation, I took apart the printhead assembly, cleaned the contacts behind the control board. Still, it complained about 932. After several rounds, I found, surprisingly, that the Ink Cartridge Connector Board (not sure about its proper name; it has 4 blue connectors and 4 springs) has a thin film below it, which was loose on the black cartridge end. It was very hard to notice. I just added a touch of super glue around the edge with a thin piece of paper, pressed it hard for a few minutes. After that, all went well. The printer passed the initialization and was able to print. There seem to be two sealing films (flimsy indeed) on the 932/933 printhead assembly -- one over the top of the ink reservoirs and the other at the bottom of the connector board. It turns out all my setup cartridges are still almost full. Hope this might be helpful for others struggling with the same problem. LGBU
