All lights are blinking, printer doesn't work. What does this mean?


This problem occurs for two reasons: the front panel cover was not installed or the ink cartridge access door was not closed before plugging in the all-in-one.
The front panel overlay must be correctly installed before the power cord is plugged in. Follow the steps below to correct the problem:
Disconnect the power cord.
Lift the scanner4.gif lid and carefully line up and install the front panel overlay.
Plug the power cord in.

let me know if this solves your problem wendy.

Hp 1350 all-in-one


When power is applied to the all-in-one for the first time, the power light is solid and the check paper, check print cartridge, black copy, and color copy lights flash, the display will be blank, and the all-in-one will not respond. One or more of the following symptoms will also be observed: The all-in-one keeps turning off Cannot print, scan, or copy The print carriage will not move Windows plug and play (device detection) does not occur The all-in-one does not respond when buttons are pressed, including the power button. SOLUTION: This problem occurs for two reasons: the front panel cover was not installed or the ink cartridge access door was not closed before plugging in the all-in-one. The front panel overlay must be correctly installed before the power cord is plugged in. Follow the steps below to correct the problem: Disconnect the power cord. Lift the scanner lid and carefully line up and install the front panel overlay. Plug the power cord in. The print cartridge access door must be closed before the all-in-one is plugged in for the first time. The all-in-one cannot complete its first initialization until the door is closed. Follow the steps below to correct the problem: Disconnect the power cord. Locate and close the print cartridge access door. CAUSE: The all-in-one initializes when it is plugged in for the first time. While initializing, the all-in-one scans a bar code on the under side of the front panel cover requiring that the front panel cover be in place and that the scanner be operable. The scanner cannot operate when the cartridge access door is open On light (green) - On Check Paper light (amber) - Blink Simultaneously Check Print Cartridge light (amber) - Blink Simultaneously Black copy area backlight (green)- Blink Simultaneously Color copy area backlight (green) - Blink Simultaneously Issue Front panel overlay is not attached at all or not attached properly Solution Turn Off the all-in-one. Attach front panel overlay as instructed on Setup Poster. Turn On the all-in-one.
