SOURCE: HP Deskjet 5850w won't print.

hmm normally it should have problem with your door micro switch. you can find it by looking for plunger at side of the door.  i did know exactly but you have to find it. if you found it you can play with the swith push on and off (spring loaded off)  try to push firmly while on the printer see if the problem occurs. if it does not, confirm your door microswitches. 
to overcome this you can spray contact cleaner to the switch or putting something to the door which touch the microswitch to make it long and actuate the microsw.

hi there!

please check on the top cover, front side cover or if the printer has duplexer (at the back) check that too, open them up and close again, make sure you hear the snap sound. here is the link for that printer too, look for manual guide, you can get it here for free or if you're in the USA, contact 800-HP invent for technical support:

HP920c cartridge light wont stop blinking, printer wont print

Please refer below for detailed troubleshooting of the specific condition:

PRINT CARTRIDGE light RESUME light POWER light Blinking Off On c00106873.jpg c00106862.jpg c00106865.jpg Problem

  2. If the PRINT CARTRIDGE light continues to blink, continue with the following steps:
    1. Open the top cover. The print cartridge cradle will move and then stop.
    2. Locate the yellow arrow on the top of the print cartridge cradle. The yellow arrow points to a drawing of a cartridge that represents a symptom. Perform the task associated with that symptom.
    3. For a list of symptoms, refer to How to use the cartridge drawings under the top access door on a 900 series Deskjet .
