Just had the very same problem. Probable Cause: On the cover of the printer there is a small piece that fits into a slot on the printer when you close the lid (to tell the printer that it is ready). If this is not engaging properly the ink light will continue to blink. As you close the lid try giving it a gentle pull towards you as you close it and see if this causes the light to go out for you. It worked for mine.

Epson R2400 paper and ink lights blinking red. Ink waste pad replaced and counter reset to 0. Lights still blinking red. Close inspection for any loose objects in printer but none found. Please advise....


Try to turn on your printer without the ink cartridges. When the printer starts and ask for the cartridges, put them back in.

(To remove the cartridges turn on the printer, watch the print head carriage move, when it is at the center quickly unplug the power cable, move the carriage by hand to a position where you can remove the cartridges, after removing the cartridges push the carriage to the right where it should be parked.)

Hp deskjet D4155...Both power and arrow lights are blinking and I have tryed turning it off and un-plugging the printer multiple times, Every time is comes on, they both are still blinking. Please help....


Please remove the ink cartridges, unplug the power cord. You may also remove the paper from the paper tray. Now, try inserting the cartridge as well.. after about 20 seconds, plug in the power..

put in the paper, and ensure that you have inserted the paper properly. Then insert the ink cartridge. This should resolve the problem.
But if the light is still blinking , try by replacing the ink cartridge.

Ink cartridge installed but cartridge light continues to blink


Have you only replaced the magenta cartridge, or have you also tried the print head. A bad print head can cause the ink to read as empty or clogged.

The ink warning light flashes, and won't go off, even after I've put a new cartridge in. I've unplugged the printer, turned it off and on, plugged the cable back in, and it won't go off.


A blinking orange light means an empty or incorrectly installed ink cartridge. Ensure that the cartridge is not empty or dried out. Also be sure you installed the number 45 black and number 78 tri color cartridges. The 41 tri-color, for example, looks the same but would generate an error. Also, check that the panel in the back, or duplexer if you have one, is seated firmly in the printer as this can generate odd errors.
