Printer blinking red and showing letter E


Error description:

The Attention (red) light is blinking. There are six possible causes that will display the Attention light pattern:

-Paper out
-Door open
-Print cartridge missing
-Paper jam
-Paper sensor jammed
-Duplexer error

Solution :
After the cause of the problem has been addressed, pressing GO will cause the printer to attempt to recover from the cause of the error. If the printer is unsuccessful, it will continue to display the Attention message until the cause is remedied.

Pressing JOB CANCEL will cancel the print job and the printer will return to the Ready state (Ready light on) unless there is a paper jam still in the printer or the print cartridge is not in the printer.

Printer hp deskjet 840c blinking green and red light why


Depends which red blinking light. I assume the red light is the resume light. The green light is the power light. If the Power and the Resume light are blinking alternately, then you have a paper jam somewhere in the printer. remove the paper jam and you should be fine.

My HP Deskjet F2100 All-in-one printer/scanner will not print a photo which is only post card size at less than A4 size when I use photo paper. It prints the correct size when I use plain paper.


just leave your paper type as Plain Paper,
and if your printing out a 5R size photo or photo sizes not exceed on Letter size paper, just leave the paper sizes using Letter,
print on both sides set as OFF.
then just customize the printing quality for a good printing result.
then load or place your photo paper properly on the paper tray to avoid jam.

Paper jam in HP Deskjet F2100 all-in-one. Flashing light indicates trouble with cartridges 21 22, but can't get at them because they are stuck at sides. Cartridges newly installed.


Thank you. Problem solved. Original cause was my inexperience: learning new tricks at age 88 isn't easy. I simply manhandled the paper jam and it worked.
