SOURCE: Hp Color LaserJet 3500 Paper Jam

The only way to find paper remnants is to unplug the printer and inspect the paper path. It also helps to have a good focusing flashlight, skinny needle nose pliers, a can of compressed air (used sparingly) and a long thin probe. Your specific printer should be giving you jam messages with a location code as well. I?ve attached a link to an HP page containing a diagram of the 3500 paper path and the error code jam locations: http://h41206.www4.hp.com/webapps/IV3/node.iv?locale=en_us&prodSeriesId=315862&node=prodITRC%2FNL_HW_IPG_plakCLJ3500_EN_01_E%2FN1%7C6%7C9&prodTypeId=18972&serverId=1#src I solved this problem in my shops years ago by not letting anyone else clear jams OR insisting that any paper removed as a result of a jam is given to me. If any corners or pieces are missing I know what to look for and approximately where. Good hunting and please don?t forget to rate this post.

SOURCE: hp deskjet 6980 blinking lights

ok so for this situation you have to do a cold reset, and by this you have to go ahead while the printer is still power on, disconnect the power cord in back of the printer, and wait for about two minutes. power on the printer if printer still has the blinking lights then go to step 2.

step 2-after this check the printer if light are still blinking, then your going to remove all printheads, remove paper, and then unplug printer power cord from printer and also from the wall outlet, wait for 20 seconds, then power on the printer, wait for light to flash then install the printheads, put paper, and press the resume button.
*** always connect your printer to a wall outlet never to a power strip, the power strip robs some of the power from the printer***
and this should fix the problem if it doesnt then the carriage might me malfunctioning . hp recently did a recall on some printer with the 6940 and some of the 6980, that the carriage broken.

Hope this help!

SOURCE: 2 small rubber pieces have fallen out. any idea

Those pieces go on the clean station and can easily be replaced. They each fit over a stud where the printhead parks and just press on.When they are missing the ink will dry out on your ink cartridges and the machine won't be able to clean them properly.

My k8600 do not print the resume and power keep blinking


It sounds like you may have a defective printer cartridge, try removing and reinstalling them to clear the problem. Also unplug the printer from power for 5 minutes to clear any programming error in the print command.

Hi, my HP D4360 DeskJet printer isn't printing. Both the power and resume lights are on and blinking, as well as both the ink lights. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks


The power and resume lights blinks due to two reasons. 1) If there is any kind of paper jam in the printer.Then its internal assembly cannot move so the lights blinks.So clear the paper jam if any.Open the cover and check if any paper jam.also there is a access door at the back to check any paper jam.The back plastic door can be opened to remove paper jam. But if you are confirmed that there is no paper jam then the other possibility. 2) The printer cartridges are faulty and needs replacement.There are two print cartridges in the printer.One color and one black.Any of the one can be faulty or in some cases both are faulty.But before replacing cartridge remove the cartridge and clean the brown dotted circuit on cartridge then reinsert the cartridges and check.But if this does not solve the problem then replace the cartridge one by one and solve the problem. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Hp 460 desk top printer will not print and two orange lights are flashing


Hi there,

It would be helpful if you still have the users manual and are able to positively identify the lights.

If the lights that are flashing are the power light and the "resume" light this would indicate you have a paper jam or or the print cartridges are not seated properly.

The resume button is the one that resembles a piece of paper with an arrow pointing down in the middle of it.

Turn off the power, and look to see if there is a piece of paper jammed inside the printer anywhere. Even a small torn piece of paper can cause an error condition.

Remove the print cartridges and turn them around so you can see what resembles a circuit board. Check to make sure the protective cover has been removed from the print cartridges. Once you've done this, install the print cartridges again and turn the power back on to see if the problem has been resolved.


In nearly all cases, flashing lights on a printer indicate a problem with the hardware itself which has nothing to do with the printer driver.

Printer error code 5100


I got error 5100 after a paper jam. There was a small piece of torn paper stuck in the gears, and I had to mess around and move the print cartridges back and forth to get seated back on the ink pads to the right of the printer (if you're looking at it from the front).
Reset the printer by powering it off for 10 seconds and try to repeat a test print.

I was able to get mine to work after a few tries. Good luck.



1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not,
press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal..

let me know if this is helpful to you

The orange down arrow light keeps blinking. what's wrong?


This means that either the printer is out of paper or there is a paper jam.

Try to check all feeds for a paper jam. Once the jam is cleared your printer should resume printing again.

Sometimes even a small peice of paper can cause the printer jam

My Epson LQ-590/LQ-2090 keeps having paper jams located just beyond the tractor feed.. help


When a paper jam occurs during printing for some reason, the printer beeps, displaying the message <PAPER JAM> in the display. When a paper jam occurs, remove the jammed paper using the following procedure, and then resume the job. If the message that indicates the paper jam does not disappear even after removing the jammed paper following the procedure, there is a possibility that torn pieces of paper are still left inside the printer. Inspect each part of the printer again, and completely remove all pieces of jammed paper.

I have got error code 5100


5100 error code means there is somekind of obstruction inside the printer thats interfering with the printing process. You have to check the inside the printer especially near the gears and under the rollers. The obstruction can be anything like a small piece of paper, a paper clip, ball pin etc., check thoroughly and you will find it. Post back if you need more help.

You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
