Re: Ink LED is constantly blinking. Printer does not...

The ink LED has 3 causes that make it blink. One is that the top cover of the printer is not well shut. Try opening it and closing it. If you?re lucky you?re home free by now. The second , simple enough, is that you?re out of ink and have to replace the cartridge. This is easy to check ? open the cover and look for the yellow arrow on the ink head. It should point on one of the small images according to the state of the ink. The two left ones indicate an empty cartridge that needs to be replaced. Note: sometimes a cartridge you get with a new printer contains less ink then a newly purchased one. Third cause is that you got the wrong type of cartridge, or that they?re not inserted well. Were they changed just now? In any case the right type is: Black: HP 6615A Series or HP No. 15 Tri-Color: HP C6578 Series or HP No. 78 Hope it works out!

My printer stoped printing

Maybe your printer are out of ink or have an error just like LED (Light Emiting Diode) blinking on the resset button. If that was the error like blinking of the resset button try to press the resset button if they could not resolved the problem and it is still blinking. You need to turned off your printer and check the ink on the cartridge or check the ink lever of you printer. Then turned it On again and try to print if you have check and change the cartridge for a new ink.

The Alarm / Power light flashes orange 8 times consecutively (Waste Ink Nearly Full Error)

What you can do is:
· Resetting the Printer By resetting the printer's power, the print buffer is cleared and certain sensors are reset. If there is invalid data in the buffer, or sensors are stuck in a particular mode; errors may occur. Follow these steps to reset the printer:
  1. Turn the printer off with the Power button (if available).
  2. Disconnect the data cable from the printer (not applicable to WiFi, Bluetooth or Infrared) .
  3. Unplug the printer's power cord for approximately 10 minutes, and then plug it back in. If troubleshooting a communication issue, reconnect the data cable (not applicable to WiFi, Bluetooth or Infrared).
  4. Turn the printer back on.
· Ink Absorber Replacement Options
This printer has an ink absorber that takes in ink during the printing and print head cleaning processes. The cleaning process is necessary in order to keep the print head nozzles from becoming clogged. Over the life of the printer, the amount of ink that the ink absorber has absorbed is calculated by the printer. Eventually, after substantial use, the printer will enter an error condition when the ink absorber is nearly full. At this point, printing is still possible by pressing the <Resume> button on the printer. To protect the printer from damage, you will not be able to print at all once the ink absorber is full.

Blinking both the ink botton ligths and the botton paper

I just today threw away my R220. If your 2 red lights are going and the power light is off, then your printer has died. It just happened to me. It sucks, but there is no way to fix it.

Blinking Light

uaually the LED blinnks when there is no ink or when it runs low on ink. But since the LED is kept there to indicate any error happens to the printer.... 1. So I suggest that you should take out the printer cartridges and check all of them....shake well before you put it back. Now open Control panel - printers and fexes - right click HP 5550 - Properties There should an option to see the ink levels. If you can see the ink means that printer can detect the cartridges. Now the printer LED should be turned off. If the above doesn't work, try this; Check the printer que .. if there are print jobs pending, the LED will blink. Delete the print jobs, and restart the machine. This should solve your problem.

Are you using remanufactured cartridges? If so, i would strongly recommend you only use factory HP ones. It is possible your logic board has gone bad. I've seen this happen to these older model inkjets.
