Re: Flashing lights

Jhoglen, If you haven't already done so turn the printer off, then back on then let sit with power on for 10 min. If nothing changes you'll have to take it in for repair. Good luck and please don't forget to rate this post.

Machine stopped - alarm light flashing

just saw this yesterday. remove the top rear paper guide. on the left side between the tractor feed and the input slot for the paper, there is a sensor flag that pivots. check for paper scrap caught under the flag. it prevents the flag movement, causes a paper out alarm.

I have a HP 1350 that is flashing lights because of a power outage. Computer no longer recognized printer. How do I fix this?

Just logout + shutdown all including power off. Check connections power and cables well. Then first power on printer, then the computer. If the flashing continues then check that your cartridges are not empty.

All 3 Error lights are flashing (4 if you count the GO button)!!

When all lights flash it's a service problem. You press and hold the go button and see what lights are on then.error light means main PCB failure, Toner light means fuser failure, drum light means laser failure. Toner and error light means main motor error, drum plus error light means its a fan failure.

BJC55 Printer not printing

There are some possibilities due to the above phenomena. Let's discuss about it:
1) If the POWER light is flashing green, then your printer is now warming up or performing maintenance procedure (replacing cartridge/tank) or cleaning print head, just wait a few seconds till the light stop flash. Also if the last page of a print job not done, this POWER light flashing green.
2) If the CHARGE/ERROR light is flashing orange with beep 3 times, it mean your cartridge need to be install (especially the 1st time turn on printer) or cartridge being replaced, just install the cartridge and press RESUME to continue.
3) If both POWER light is flashing green and CHARGE/ERROR light is flashing orange with beep 3 times, then your printer may facing a very serious error and maybe need a replacement.

Hope these help.
