hi, I own a HP deskjet 930. Quite old already, but always no problems. Until now. The INK light keeps flashing. The user guide says to remove and reinsert the black cartridge, but still flashing. And the ink is 100%! How? Should I buy a new ink ($30)? It might not work still. Or buy new printer? My printer is about 3 and half years now.

Try these steps:

5) Leave the printer off for about 15 seconds, then replace the cartidge back onto the carrier
6) With the power-on button pressed and held, reconnect the power supply back to the printer
If symptoms persist, very likely the cartridge has problem.

If there're electrical contacts between the cartridge and printer, try cleaning them to see if it solves the problem.
