Shut it down, remove power and USB cord.
Whilst in this state thoroughly check for paper debris in the paper track.
Then power up one more and do not connect USB

Hp 6940 printer has flashing resume and power light, no paper jam and carriage seems to move ok....


Check the Encoder Strip (metallic) that runs the length of the printer in the back of the carriage. If it is loose the carriage will not line up correctly in the printer and cause the lights to flash. On the inside right of the printer behind where the carriage sets when you change the ink look to see if the metallic encoder strip has come off the hook. If so simply reattach it to the little metal hook and the printer should start working again.

Hi, my HP D4360 DeskJet printer isn't printing. Both the power and resume lights are on and blinking, as well as both the ink lights. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks


The power and resume lights blinks due to two reasons. 1) If there is any kind of paper jam in the printer.Then its internal assembly cannot move so the lights blinks.So clear the paper jam if any.Open the cover and check if any paper jam.also there is a access door at the back to check any paper jam.The back plastic door can be opened to remove paper jam. But if you are confirmed that there is no paper jam then the other possibility. 2) The printer cartridges are faulty and needs replacement.There are two print cartridges in the printer.One color and one black.Any of the one can be faulty or in some cases both are faulty.But before replacing cartridge remove the cartridge and clean the brown dotted circuit on cartridge then reinsert the cartridges and check.But if this does not solve the problem then replace the cartridge one by one and solve the problem. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Hp deskjet 5652 not printing, orange light flashing continuously


1. Check to insure the cover is shut down completely.

2. If the "Ink Drop" Icon is blinking you are either out of ink, or there is a problem with the cartridge carrier. So open the cover - the carriage should move to the middle, if not it is bound up somewhere. Check the guides and around the carriage area for gummy labels etc..

3. If the carriage moves to the middle, release the ink cartridges and replace.

4. If the "Arrow" Icon is blinking, this could be a result of a paper feed error. Remove the paper from the tray, open the cover and insure no jams are in the rollers. Shuffle the paper lightly and place back in tray. Check to make sure the tray is pushed completely forward and then press the "Arrow" Icon button until a sheet is fed into the printer.

* * Note: When you are replacing the Ink cartridges and before you remove the tape from the bottom heads, give them a shake to lossen up the ink before installing.
