Resetting a Hp printer means switching off the machine, removing the cartridges, disconnecting the usb cable and the power chord, leave it off for few minutes then restarting it again without usb cable connected to it and without cartridges installed. You need to press the power button while it boots up. Leave it one for few minutes and again turn it off. Reinstall the cartridges and plug in the usb cable, again Power On the printer. That's all.
But there's another thing when you say all lights are blinking/flashing, there is chance that there's an internal faulty. Clean the cartridges contact point and the contact points on the printer. If possible, clean the printer thoroughly, including the waste ink tank. This will let you help find out the culprit.

Please turn off the printer and disconnect the power chord and the usb cable, open the scanner door/backdoor, etc.. Remove the cartridges and clean cartridges contact points. Leave it for few minutes without any connection. Power on only with the power chord connected and without installing the cartridges and again leave it for few more minutes, switch it off. Reinstall and reconnect all the cables. Restart your system and boot up both the Pc and the printer simultaneously while you keep pressing the power button of the printer. Note that you have to use only the power button to switch the printer off or on.
Thank you for using FixYa.
did you change the cartridges with O.E.M. or aftermarket? If with O.E.M inks then there is a problem with the waste ink container and it needs to b cleaned.. requires removal of the waste in station which is under the inks on the right side of the printer
See instructions here to check the front panel, and reset the printer....etc. Other support options for your printer here.
Note that you're supposed to change cartridges with the printer turned ON, see here.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!
Very sensitive printer. Due to dust, the catrdges are getting stuck at right side. Please clean the steel roller where the catridges are rested. Clean it with nice cloth and if possible put 3-in-1 oil in that area only for the smooth flow of catridges in that steel stem or roller.
This might happen iif we are not installing the orignal and genuine catridges and there is a chance of ink gettng leaked onto the printer.
Kind advise is if the printer is old, please put an annual maintenace service contract with local authorized hp Printer Dealer which will solve your problem once for all.
I have the 1350 all in one, and when I changed my cartridges I screwed up and replaced both at the same time, that was a no no as I found out. I kept getting the test printer and print example too. so what I had to do was Uninstall the printer and drivers, then reinstall them again, that worked.
its either the catridge head is bad or yr new ink isnt too good although its new it still can go bad. now try using menthylated spirit sucked in a tooth brush thats not too hard . use it to clean the inside of the cartridge head. that is those spots inside. cos atimes dirty could cause such problems. so try it out.
hope this helps
