Try to check your cartridges. Pull it out one at a time then try to see it it stop blinking. Especially cartridges that was refilled. Improper refilling of cartridges causes them to stop responding to your printer and causes to malfunction. this was base from my experience.

Thanks adamzg for you contribution. However I tried something else and it really works, surprise surprise!!!! Anyone with this problem should try this-: I took the top casing off the printer and carefully removed the data strip (the clear plastic strip right behind the moving carriage). I cleaned this by wiping along its length with a soft cloth with just hint of water on the cloth. I was surprised at how much muck came off it. Replace it carefully making sure it passes through the slot correctly. Switched on and hey presto it worked much to my astonishment.

You have to look in the control panel for printers and faxes to get the status message for the printer. That will tell you why it's blinking. My printer seems to always be "jammed" even though it's not. It seems like there are some problems with the way the print heads track across the rail. It tends to jump really hard at the right hand extreme when initiating a move from right to left and then it says "paper jammed". Hitting the power button one time will some times eject the page. Other times I have to remove the back panel and pull the paper out the back.

Lather rinse repeat. I'm thinking of trying to return the thing on warranty but not sure if I have the receipt or will be able to return it.

Prinnter not printing but showing 'put custom in manual tray'

There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.

Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.

Why does canon MP258 printer with scanner can't scan japanese yen paper bill amount 10,000. I tried it over 10 times but it stops,. And when i tried US paper bill, it works well. I need some explanation...

When you scan with any scanner it utilised the software with "Optical Character Recognition functions, usually abbreviated to OCR -> OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision." to scan and record the scanned object, sometimes it does not or cannot recognise certain symbols or characters because of man made software & hardware have its limitations too.

Hope it helps.
