Re: attention light on hp 1115photosmart
Try disconnecting the Mouse Receiver from the
USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When
the program asks you to connect the MouseReceiver to the USB
port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

It looks like your Photosmart 1115 printer uses an HP45 black ink cartridge and an HP78 tri-color cartridge. Some HP printers will accept re-manufactured ink carts, while other HP printers will not...just so you know. I've always bought genuine HP ink cartridges on eBay to save $$$.
The Attention (red) light is blinking. There are six possible causes that will display the Attention light pattern:
-Paper out -Door open -Print cartridge missing -Paper jam -Paper sensor jammed -Duplexer error
Solution : After the cause of the problem has been addressed, pressing GO will cause the printer to attempt to recover from the cause of the error. If the printer is unsuccessful, it will continue to display the Attention message until the cause is remedied.
Pressing JOB CANCEL will cancel the print job and the printer will return to the Ready state (Ready light on) unless there is a paper jam still in the printer or the print cartridge is not in the printer.
PUT PAPER INSIDE PRINTER POWER OFF THE PRINTER. THEN PRESS & HOLD THE BUTTON ON TOP OF PRINTER BY HOLDING THE BUTTON NOW SWITCH THE PRINTER ON & WAIT UNTIL THE SIZE OF PAPER IS SCANNED . IT WIILL BE DONE.
If error number 40204 was writtent to the error log, the imaging drum is either empty or missing (I would suspect empty). If error number 10004 was written to the error log, the imaging drum e-reader may have failed. So, in either case, reinsert the imaging drum. If the light continues to blink and the Attention light (exclamation point in a triangle) is not on, turn the printer off and then back on. If this does not clear the error, replace the imaging drum with a new one. Again, if the light continues to blink and the Attention light is off, turn the printer off and then back on.
If the error persists after these steps, let us know and we can persue other options.
The printer displays an assert error code. Assert error codes indicate that the printer has an internal condition that may respond to a hard reset of the printer. Beyond that, service may be required. This document applies to the following products:

SOLUTION: Hard reset of the printer
