Did it eject the paper? The paper may have been crooked or became so in the printer. Check the Paper jam area first. If there is nothing there, Let's try a simple reset of your printer.
Go to Control panel>printers and faxes>click on your printer icon and under documents click cancel all documents.
Turn the printer off
Remove the paper from the tray
Unplug it from the power source
unplug it from the PC
Now open the paper jam door and gently push the paper roller forward until it clicks
Now do everything in reverse order until you get to turning the printer back on. give it a few minutes and see if it resets itself.
when you reload paper, besure that it is aligned carefully and the holders are pushed into place.
Let me know if this helps. Good Luck!

Try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers. This can be done by going to the Add and Remove programs, this is located under the Control Panel. You may have to reboot and I would recommend that you do. This will clear out the Print Spooler. The Print Spooler is located under the C Drive and may get corrupted. You can find information about this in Google. Look for repairing spooler on the OS that you are using.

If both lights are flashing, it means the Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink "protection" counter has exceeded its limit. The Waste Ink Pads should be replaced as soon as possible. You can overcome this problem temporarily by using the SSC utility - download from
and use it to reset the Protection Counter. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation.
However, remember that eventually ink will overflow from the waste ink area and make a dreadful mess, so you must change the waste ink pads before this happens. This requires the disassembly of the printer. This is quite straightforward once you know what to do.
If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, post a new comment, and I will provide further help.

Something is keeping the printer from printing. Either you have a jam, the print belt isn't moving, a dirty/bad sensor, or the logic board has failed. The first can be addressed pretty easily. Check everywhere. The second, you can check by looking at the small white pully on the right side behind the print head, that belt should be snug and the pully intact. (Have those break a lot for some reason.). The dirt might be able to fix by blowing around the sensor areas with a can of compressed air to blow away paper dust. But if the sensors or main logic board are bad there isn't much you can do.
