My problem was NOT a printer, instead a scanner.  The assistant did not understand the problem.  While trying to explain the problems, the scanner decided to work.

My printer does not work at all. when i turn it on there is an E in the copies area and the check print cartridge light is blinking but im pretty sure there is enough ink.


Try cleaning the printer head contact by using video head cleaner spray. Spray on both contact on the print cartridge and the print head inside the printer. And wipe off the dirt with clean soft cloth.<br /> <br /> First you need to power up the printer and open the front cover.<br /> The printer head will move into center and then you can pull out the power cord. Note that never clean the contact when power is on. Otherwise it may be permanent damage.<!-- from fixya rte -->

I just moved from a different location. When I try to plug in my 6310xi the light comes on for a few moments then shuts off. Only a small blinking camera light in the lower left front of the unit blinks....


i think the power supply in your new location is bad, the small blinking camera light is only indicating low voltage.

M y advice is you get a stabilizer to boost the voltage or voltage regulator to boost the power supply to the printer standard.

I wish you best of luck

Cartridge seems to move smoothly. Just get the


There could be 2 reason for this error. You can either reset the error or try and clean the printer from inside which might be causing the problem. Below are the 2 steps:

STEP 1: Clean the printer from inside
  1. Opened the cover and checked the front right of the printer near the waste ink pads
  2. Carefully turn the cogs to move the ink cleaning mechanism
  3. There might be a load of paper jam debris blocking the mechanism from reaching its port
  4. Carefully cleaning this out and putting the printer back together

STEP 2: Reset the error

1) Close the print head cover, and turn off the printer. While pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press the Power button. (Do not release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (Do not release the Power button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button three times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.) During initialization, the LED blinks in green.

4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)

5) Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the selected function is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)

6) Power off then back on and test.

Printer light keeps blinking after being pluged in


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.

HL-1440 Blinking lights


Mine had the 4 led's blinking alternating with the drum. I held down the button on the front till all lights were on steady and pressed the off switch on the left (while holding the front button down). After powering back up all was well again.

LQ-2180 printer is Continues blinking front panel lights.


The LQ2180 blinking lights can be caused by paper jammed, printhead overheated, paper loaded not detected and cover unclosed. Try to check all this first, you may have a fragment of paper stick to the sensors, or broken sensor. If all of the light flashing try to check the carriage movement, move it side to side, but with power off condition. If the carriage movement not smooth or stuck, look for any foreign matters inside the carriage path that blocking the movement if not, try to lubricate the rail which hold the carriage. If this doesnt solve you, the machine require parts replacement.

The printer apear to be dead!


Buttons and lights on the printer Two buttons and three lights are located on the front of an HP Deskjet printer.
  • The lights tell when the printer is working or when it needs attention.
  • The buttons help control the printer.
Buttons and lights Purpose c00123886.jpg POWER button and light Push the POWER button to turn the printer off and on. When lit, the light shows that the printer is turned on. c00123889.jpg RESUME button and light The light blinks when there is a problem with paper. When the problem is corrected, press the button. c00123892.jpg Print cartridge light The light blinks when there is a problem with a print cartridge. When the problem is corrected and the top cover is closed, the light will stop blinking. Troubleshooting blinking printer lights Blinking lights Reason c00123895.jpg

All lights are off. The printer is off (asleep).

Press the POWER buttonc00123886.jpg to turn the printer on.

The printer should turn on automatically when a print job is sent to it. c00123898.jpg

The POWER (top) light is on. The printer is idle.

The printer is ready to print a document. c00123900.jpg

The POWER (top) light is blinking. The printer is busy printing.

Allow enough time to print. When a document has many fonts or graphics or uses complex color such as a color photo, it takes longer to begin printing. c00123902.jpg

The PRINT CARTRIDGE (bottom) light is blinking. Possible causes:

  • The front cover is open. Make sure the front cover is completely closed.
  • The print cartridge is missing. Make sure the print cartridge has been installed correctly.
  • The print cartridge is broken or incompatible. Lift the front cover, and wait for the print-cartridge cradle to slide out. Check the part numbers on the print cartridge:


Black: 51645A

Color: C1823D,

If the print cartridges are compatible and correctly installed, they may be defective. Try replacing the print cartridges.

If none of the above suggestions fix the problem, and, if the error message still occurs, it may be a hardware failure. Call the HP Customer Support Center.
