Two things to consider.
1. If the blinking is fast (like more than two blinks per second) then the printer is damaged. Either the main controller board is fried or the carriage/ink controller is damaged.
2. if the blinking is slow ( 1 blink per second) this means that either of your cartridges is busted. remove the black cartridge then close the top cover. If the blinking stops, then the black ink is the culprit. If not, replace the black then remove the other cartridge. THis means that one of your cartridge needs to be replaced.

Printer not move


Your cartridge must be out of ink. If it is a refilled one then don't worry, just ignore the message if it is printing well. This occurs because once the sensor inside the cartridge senses low ink it will show the message, even after refilling because resetting the sensor of refilled cartridges is a complicated process and the message will appear till you reset the ink level sensor inside the cartridge.

Hp deskjet 3940 printer light just blinks.It will not do anything else.


Hi,

in this printer only one LED present that blinks and two kinds of blinking one slow and other fast blinking

So if slow blinking inyour printer then this may be cartridge error, if you are are using refilled ink cartridge so please change change that one.

and if fast blinking in your printer then you cannot do anything.

in last go to AN Authorised service centre(to know the address of AN Authorised service centre in your city please visit at http://www.hp.com ).

Hi meemee, If ink comes out of the ink nozzles on the cartridge then you probably just need to reset the printer page counter. Each time the cartridge is removed from the printer an empty cartridge message appears and a blinking amber light will display on the printer. Hold the paper feed button down for 3-5 seconds, and that should override the counter. If ink isn?t coming out of the ink nozzles then you may have an air pocket preventing the flow of ink. Try running your printer cleaning cycle a couple of times to see if that helps. Lastly you might try letting the cartridge site for 24 hours to let gravity try to fix it. As a last resort you can try unplugging your refill hole in the cartridge. If your cartridge ink is going to flow it will now, just be ready to re-plug the fill hole. Let us know how it goes and don?t forget to rate the post.
