I have had this printer for many years without issue, so I do know that it is an older model. My printer light started flashing indicating I needed ink, so I went and purchased both cartridges and still no printing. The printer makes all of the correct noises but no ink appears on the paper. Once new cartridges installed flashing light disappeared. 

I do not want to throw this away unless I absolutely have to. I have tried removing cartridges and reinstalling etc

Hi,

Are these genuine HP ink cartridges?


Can you see any blinking light pattern following a printout, or just a blank paper following a normal paper feed?

Take out the ink cartridges and stamp with the nozzles area (figure 1) over a tissue several times, can you see a clear ink mark or not?

Please clarify the results, such behavior would likely occur due to a clogged ink cartridge..
