Question about HP LaserJet 1320 Printer

1 Answer

Flashing triangular light with the exclamation mark inside it.

I have removed the jammed paper, however the orange light beside the triangle shape with the exclamation mark is still flashing. I have turned the printer off, only to turn it on again & have the printer voluntarily print out page after page of paper with one line of symbols at the top of the page. How do I get the printer to stop printing & wasting all these pieces of paper? As well, I have put a new HP toner cartridge in the printer about a month ago. So low toner should not be the problem.
Thanks for your help.

    I have done what you suggested to Pennie Brown but the yelloe light persists. Any other suggestions??



    The printer worked great until the paper jammed.

Clear the printer queue on the computer (double-click the printer icon in the tray or in the Printers and Faxes folder and cancel all documents listed). Then power off the printer and disconnect the power - remove the paper from the paper tray until you have the printer memory cleared as to not waste paper.

The orange light on my printer is flashing next to the triangle symbol with an exclamation point in it. What does this mean and how do I fix?


Paper could be lodged in printer somewhere. Check front and rear area where paper runs through. Then unplug and try to reset

I am trying to print a document and the Triangle with the Exclamation mark is flashing. What does this indicate?


that means atention:)
Maybe toner is low. Don't worry and keep on printing until you can. But if you can't print then maybe you have a paper jam. Look for problems with paper and restart printer

Triangle with exclamation mark is flashing orange. What's the problem with it?


This usually indicates one of the following issues have occurred. Perform the following in the order provided to troubleshoot and resolve the issue.
1. Insufficient power. Disconnect the power cord from any surge protectors or power strips and plug the unit directly into an electrical wall outlet.
2. There is a paper jam in the printer.
3. The top cover is open. Open the top cover, reseat the print cartridge, and close the top cover, making certain it is shut properly.
4. No paper was loaded in tray 2 or the tray was not loaded properly causing a mispick.
A. Pull the tray out of the printer and remove any paper.
B. Move the blue side width guide outward to match the paper size that is being loaded. Locate the blue guide pointer on the left side of the tray. If using a letter-size (8.5 by 11 inch) paper, match the guide point with the LTR/LGL engraving located on the bottom, left-side of the lift plate.
C. Locate the blue tab on the rear paper-length guide. Locate the triangle-shaped pointer in the middle-right on the bottom of the tray. Press on the blue tab and adjust it so that the triangle-shaped pointer matches the paper size that is being loaded. If using letter-size (8.5 by 11 inch) paper, match the triangle-shaped pointer with the LTR engraving on the bottom of the tray.
D. Place the paper in the tray and make sure that it is flat at all four corners. Keep the paper below the height down arrows on the paper-length guide in the rear of the tray.
E. Slide the tray back in the printer.
5. The tray 2 paper level indicator is stuck.
6. If the printer comes back to a Ready state, print a Self-Test/Configuration page. If the printer is not in a Ready state, proceed to step 7.
A. Verify the printer is in a Ready state. (The green LED next to the U-shaped icon is on steady and no other lights are on.)
B. Press down on the green GO button until the orange Attention light comes on (approximately 5 seconds), and then immediately release the GO button. The green GO button will begin to blink and a Self-Test/Configuration page will print.
7. If the attention light is still on, perform a cold reset. A cold reset, sets most, but not all, default variables stored in NVRAM back to the factory default values. It typically does not reset the page count, paper tray sizes, localization language, or formatter number. Complete the following to perform a cold reset.
A. Turn the printer off.
B. Press and hold down the green GO button.
C. Turn the printer on and continue to hold the green GO button for at least 5 seconds, but not longer than 15 seconds. During the process, the Attention LED will turn on.
D. Release the GO button.
NOTE: If both the Attention light and the Ready LEDs turn on before the GO button is released, the cold reset procedure must be started over at step 1.
E. The printer LEDs begin cycling. The cold reset process runs until completion and the printer returns to the Ready state.

Help!! Triangle with exclamation mark is flashing. What does it mean?


The blinking triangle indicates one of the following: Paper tray is empty, Door open, Paper jam, Misfeed from tray.

To fix it:
Verif that the print cartridge is present and that the print-cartridge door is closed correctly. Verify that media is present in the input tray. Clear any jams and perform paper-path functional checks. To reset the printer after a jam, press the Go button. You might need to clear the error manually, and press the Go button or close the top cover

I have an HP 1022N and the top yellow light with triangle with exclamation mark symbol inside is blinking and printer won't function. How to fix?.


According to the user manual the triangle lamp blinking is an indication that the error needs user intervention. The possible causes are the ink cartridge door is not closed completely, out of paper, no ink cartridge, or there is a paperjam. To fix these, click on the link below to download the user manual. This issue is posted on page 75. Hope this helps.
