Question about HP LaserJet 1020 Printer

Attention Light Flashing

The attention light on my printer is flashing and I can't figure out why. I thought it meant I needed to replace the toner cartridge but I've done that and it's still flashing.

    I also have the same flashing light. It all started with a paper jam.This was cleared. Now, when the "print" instruction is given for one copy only, it prints copy after copy until there is no longer any paper left in the tray. Restarting the computer signals the printer to print. Without paper in the tray, it will try to print 3 copies, and then shut down.

    Would uninstalling then reinstalling the printer solve this problem?

Unfortunately, HP didn't make this indicator very descriptive. Their product specification page for this printer states that the blinking Attention light, "indicates that the printer media input trays are empty, the print cartridge door is open, the print cartridge is missing, or other errors".

You've already changed the print cartridge and the light is still blinking, so you should take a look at the other conditions described such as an empty paper tray, open door, and so forth. You also will want to look for a paper jam or carriage jam. These are two very common errors that will result in a blinking Attention light.

HP.com does provide a web page that describes a specific problem associated with a blinking Attention light:

  • I take it you are refilling the toner cartridge...
  • Switch the printer off.
  • Press and hold the green button on your printer and turn the printer on. You will see that the lights flash for a moment and then turn off. After a few seconds, the attention light will turn on followed by ready light and the green light. Keep pressing the green button. In a few seconds, the attention light and the ready light will turn off.
  • Push the toner rotate button while you continue pressing the green button. As you briefly push the toner button, you will see the light flashing. Release both the toner button and the green button.
  • Repeatedly push the red button (cancel button). Now all the working lights on the printer will turn off.
  • Open and close the lid of HP printer once. The light will start blinking.
  • Press the green button. Your HP toner cartridge chip will be reset.

    Light with the triangle flashing - printer stopped


    That means ATTENTION, you are either out of toner or have a paper jam.

    The traingle is flashing orange the rest not flashing. the printer does not print


    In the Attention state, the Attention light is blinking and the Go and Ready lights are off. This state can be reached in the following circumstances:

    ● Paper tray is empty
    ● Door open
    ● Toner Cartridge Missing
    ● Paper jam/ Tray Misfeed

    Pressing Go attempts to reset after a jam is cleared or is ignored in the other error cases. It may be necessary to clear the error manually and press Go or close the top cover. If the error still persists, the device will return to the Attention state.

    Note
    The LJ1010 product series does not have paper out sensors. When the printer is in an Attention state because the paper tray is empty, the user must reload paper and press Go.

    The flashing means that the toner and/or the imaging drum is empty or missing (printing halts on these errors). Lights on steady means low toner.

    Hp lj 2500 flashing yellow light


    The yellow-print-cartridge
    light is blinking, and the
    printer stops printing.
     The print cartridge is
    empty or missing.
     The printer cannot
    detect the print
    cartridge correctly.
    1. Reinsert or replace the print cartridge.
    2. If the print-cartridge light is still blinking but the
    Attention light is not on, turn the printer off and
    then back on.
    3. If the problem persists, repeat the above steps
    with yellow print cartridges until the error is
    resolved.
    4. If the problem persists, replace the printcartridge
    E-label reader, which is located on the
    pressure assembly of the print-cartridge
    carousel.

    Flashing light


    Here is what HP has on the subject of the triangle light flashing:
    c00028322.gif 1 - Attention Light 2 - Ready Light 3 - Go Light Figure 2: Printer light key c00028323.gif 1 - Symbol for light off 2 - Symbol for light on 3 - Symbol for light blinking
    c00028328.gif Door open, media out, no print cartridge, or media jam

    The printer is in an error state that requires operator intervention or help. Check the following:
    • The print cartridge door is completely closed.
    • Media is loaded.
    • The print cartridge is correctly installed in the printer.
    • There is no media jam.

    Figure 8: Paper jam c00028328.gif 13.JJ.NT JAM IN TRAY 1

    13.JJ.NT JAM IN TRAY X

    The Attention LED is blinking. Check paper loading then open and close top cover.

    When there is a jam in tray 1, verify the paper is loaded correctly, open and close the top cover. Pressing GO is ignored.

    When there is a jam in tray X, verify the paper is loaded correctly, open and close the top cover. Pressing GO is ignored. These are the error explanations for just the flashing triangle light, there are many more, but none for just the flashing triangle.

    If the light pattern is different let me know (other lights on as well)
    -Hope this helps.

    Hp laserjet 1320 problem


    This is an error state that is not described at HP site.

    Try to do a hard reset:

    1) Turn off the printer

    2) Press and hold down the green GO button

    3) Turn the printer on and continue to hold the green GO button for at least 5 seconds, but not longer than 15 seconds. During the process, the Attention LED will turn on.

    4) Release the GO button.NOTE: If both the Attention light and the Ready LEDs turn on before the GO button is released, the cold reset procedure must be started over at step 1.

    5) The printer LEDs begin cycling. The cold reset process runs until completion and the printer returns to the Ready state.

    Hope it will help you

    The red attention indicator light and the toner indicator light are both flashing together


    ON your driver check that the paper size is correct and this most commonly occurs when the incorrect paper size is selected. For example if you are printing to A4 and you have letter size installed in the machine then the system will cause an error or jam when there is nothing there.

    Also within word or which ever program you are using on the document goto file and then down to page setup once in there check the paper size make sure it's correct for the paper in your machine also check the paper source. Once you have done this check the paper tray guides are correctly against the paper turn on and try printing and hopefully this will work.

    Thanks J
