Hp photosmart D5100 paper feeded not working, flashing red light.

Please make sure that there is no paper (sent for printing in the printer) stuck inside the internal machine of the printer. You can check this by lifting the hood or opening movable parts of the printer.

I changed the color ink in my d5160 printer and now the red light is flashing. i can't get the printer to reset it self.

Sorry to hear you are having problems with your printer. Here are some things to check.

1) Is cartridge inserted correctly and all tape remove from cartridge?
2) Are both cartridges in correct chamber?
3) Have you tried unplugging and letting stand for a minute or two and then replugging? (Hard Reset)
4) Do you get any error message on your screen?
5) Is paper fed into paper tray and pushed all of the way back?
6) What if any error message do you get on the computer itself in printers inside coontrol panel?

Let me know if these don't provide an answer and I will gladly assist further.

Blinking red light, unable to turn off or print

From the looks of your printer. I'd say that one of your ink has a problem. The part where you put the cartridge in, is where your problem lies. YOu'll prob need to get it checked out by an HP dealer.

try changing the ink cartridge and see if that helps.

! keeps flashing

Check on the error message that appears on both your monitor and printer....most of the time you run out of paper, a paper jam, or a low ink cartridge....whatever message that is it needs your attention!....cheers
