    Yes. I could find the problem. The problem was with one of the catridges. Thanks a lot for giving me the solution. I appreciate him.

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.

Please follow the directions in the link below:
The Power light (c01602202.gif ) might blink (flash) or be off. A blinking Power light indicates that the product requires maintenance, or is in an error state.

I am having HP Deskjet 3920 Printer. When i try to print any documents, it will show an error message that " The Triclor cartridge is incorrectly installed" , although still it will print color prints...


Hi Anish, Have u checked the printer cartridges installed properly(i.e., Color in color door and black in black door). and also check the cabling between the system and your printer. and put the papers properly. if the problem again persists uninstall the printer driver and install the latest drives which can be downloaded from the net.

Thanks,

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 ).

thanks
