    Same problem: printer worked on one computer, shut it off, moved it to another computer, lights 2 & 5 on solid. Toner cartridge didn't change during the transfer. Replacement with new toner cartridge (not a remanufactured cartridge does NOT fix this.

If the lights are solid -
The error is caused by a defective cartridge, an unsupported cartridge, an invalid refill, or a cartridge meant to be used in another geographic region.

• If the print cartridge is not installed, install it.
• If the print cartridge is installed, remove it and install a new print cartridge.

If the lights are flashing
This means the photoconducter kit needs replacing

My printer HP Officejet J4580 All in one, does not print, It reports "Entering sleep mode". Put new ink cartriges in, paper not jammed and no lights flashing and I printed a test page on the printer to...


Hi.

Try the following in order:

Disconnect printer power cord.
Turn off computer.
Disconnect computer power cord. (if laptop also remove battery)
Restart first computer than printer.
(this may look stupid, but it drains power that can jam USB ports and cause malfunction).

Clean the metal plate contacts in the ink carriage using cotton and isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution.

Try turning off printer and performing a new cartridge installation. Use the HP software cartridge replacement procedure, do not simply swap cartridges.

Disconnect printer USB, reinstall printer software, connect printer back when prompted by setup wizard. Updated software for this model available at Software & Driver Downloads.

If you have spare cartridges, test them, the problem may be caused by a defective cartridge chip. Non original or refurbished cartridges commonly cause similar problems.

OfficeJet Pro K5400...ink cartridge


Er, NO.
The answer to the above question is clearly misleading.
If you consult the documentation for your HP K5400, which can also be found online, you will find that the printer cartridge lights also blink when the print heads require replacing.
If you have replaced the cartridge and the light still flashes, this is the most common solution. Replace the print heads.
Unfortunately because the printer is badly designed, there is no way of indicating this, and you will have troubles if you attempt to get the HP Toolbox or any other diagnostic tools working.
Good luck!

X2480 start button flashes quickly. Have replaced cartridge


Please follow the instructions given below:

1. Disconnect the USB cable and the printer power cable.
2. Please disconnect the power supply from the back of the printer.
3. Then remove the cartridges from the printer.
4. Please reconnect the power supply back and turn on the printer.
5. If lights are blinking then printer encoder strip is most likely the problem. Unplug the power from the printer. Open the front cover and move the cartridge carrier to the center. You should see a white ribbon cable, a thin plastic strip and a black belt with teeth.
6. The thin plastic strip is the encoder strip. It rides in a sensor on the back of the cartridge carrier that you will not be able to see. Reach in with the first finger of either hand and carefully strum the strip as if playing a guitar.
7. The strip will need to be lowered slightly and brought towards you slightly. Please be careful not to break the strip or your printer will not function. Once you believe the strip is set correctly, plug the power back and let us know if the lights are still blinking.
8. If you cannot repair the strip, please let us know so that we can assist you further.
Please Note: Fixing the encoder strip is a delicate procedure. During the troubleshooting, if the strip breaks, you will not be able to use the printer. We will replace the printer, only if it is under warranty.
9. However, if lights are not blinking then try inserting one cartridge at a time and check if you can see any lights blinking. If light blinks with one cartridge then that cartridge is defective.

Flashing ink cartridge lights, soild paper light


Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Troubleshooting on hp printer/scanner/copier


Hi,

This looks like either there is an paper jam or carriage jam on the unit,

Check the rare access door weather there is a paper jam.

Remove the cartridges and try moving the carriage( the cartridge hold) left to right and right to left and check if its moving freely.

After these try disconnecting the power cable without turning off the unit and hold the On button for 15 secs and then plug in the power cable while your hold the on button.

This should probably fix the issue.

Please do let me know if there is still an issue.
