Hi. I have a PSC 1110 for more than 2 years and had no problem using it. It was mostly used for scanning / copying as the main printing is done on a Laserjet.
I ran out of cartridges and waited a long time to buy new ones - 3 months.
When I installed the new cartridges (HP original) the printer started behaving in a strange way. All the lights start blinking including the orange ones - for paper and cartridges. The carridge carraige stays parked in the left side.

Re: Blinking Lights on PSC 1110
IF YOU GO TO THE HP SITE AND PLUG IN YOUR MODEL NUMBER THERE IS INFORMATION THE ON HOW TO RESET HP PRINTERS. THE FLASHING LIGHTS ARE THE SAME AS AN ERROR WARNING AND YOUR PRINTER MAY JUST NEED TO BE RESET. I KNOW ON A 1300 SERIES IT WAS A COMBINATION OF HITTING THE ON SWITCH AND THE PAPER SIZE SWITCH ON STARTUP, AND WAITING FOR THE LIGHTS TO TURN SOLID. YOU SHOULD FIND YOUR RESET ONLINE. HP IS PRETTY GOOD WITH THEIR ONLINE MANUALS, AND YOU CAN PLUG THE FAULT INTO THE SEARCH BLOCK AND IT WILL PUT YOU INTO THE TROUBLESHOOTING PAGES.

To be able to understand the problem, you should give extra info about the lights. Please find the information below about the status lights that provide information about error conditions of your printer.But first you need to install the driver for your operating system. The drivers are necessary to print documents and scan images. These drivers must be installed to use the print and scan features.
If the On light, Check Print Cartridge light, Check Paper light, and Start Copy, Black and Start Copy, Color lights are all flashing, do the following: 1 Verify that the front-panel overlay is attached to the HP PSC. 2 Turn your HP PSC off and on by disconnecting the power cord and reconnecting. Problem 1:“ON” light is on, “check paper” light is blinking and “check print cartridge light” is off .
Explanation 1:The paper tray is empty, the HP psc has a paper jam, or the paper size setting and paper in paper tray are not the same. Solution 1: • Load paper, or remove thepaper jam. • Change paper in paper tray to correct size. • Change paper size on the computer software. Then press On/ Resume to continue. NOT : PLS SEE THE NEXT MESSAGE. CONTINUED AS THE COMMENTS BELOW:
Some how someone has created, (Copy2). (It shouldn't be there at all nor a Copy1).
Only an icon of the HP PCS 1110 series & HP PCS 1110 Fax.
Let's try the easy way to fix this first!
Left click the Start button once & slide up to & left click once on Printers and Faxes.
Printers and Faxes window will open. Find Copy2 & right click on it once, slide to & left click Delete. (Copy 2 should go away)!
You still have an listing of an HP 1110 here in Printers and Faxes window.
Find the HP 1110 series printer from the list, right click on it once & from within the pop-up window left click, Set as "Default Printer". That should do it. Play it safe & restart the system.
I had this problem. If you like my solution please consider making a small contribution (e.g. 1$) to a charity of your choice.
For use on Windows Vista Launch "Windows Photo Gallery", click on file and select "Import from camera or scanner". If your scanner is connected and powered up, your device(e.g Hp psc 1110) should be displayed in the "Scanners and Camera" section. Double click on your scanner in this window. A dialog box should be displayed. It will allow you to set scan characteristics and preview your scan. happy scanning !!
As far as i know "HP Director" has been replaced on Vista with the method described above.
