    Is this a new printer installation? have you already installed the printer software?

    check also for paper jams inside the printer and for empty inks.

Red and green light blinking


ive done some reading up on this at it may be caused by no paper in it, if there is paper in it then power it off and unplug it and wait about 2 sec then plug it back in and power it on, if you are still getting the lights and there is paper in it, then let me know it the first part of this works or not and i will keep looking in on this.

thanks and good luck

Printer hp deskjet 840c blinking green and red light why


Depends which red blinking light. I assume the red light is the resume light. The green light is the power light. If the Power and the Resume light are blinking alternately, then you have a paper jam somewhere in the printer. remove the paper jam and you should be fine.

The red light is blinking and it doesn't print.


There are actually some certain meaning on the red light and green light showing different information to user. The summaries are:
1) Green On, Red Off = Printer Ready.
2) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Fast-Flashing = Printer warm up.
3) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Off = Printer off-line.
4) Green Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Processing Data.
5) Green Off, Red On = Cover Opened, Toner Empty or Developer Unit / Drum unit missing.
6) Green Off, Red Fast-Flashing = Paper Jam or waiting for jam reset.
7) Green Off, Red Slow-Flashing = Paper Empty or Paper tray is not inserted.
8) Green Off, Red Off = Printer power is off.
9) Green Very-Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Printer in sleep mode.
10) Green (any condition above), Red Slow-Flashing = Toner low or paper empty.

So what is your printer condition? Better know what is going on your printer so can solve the problem.

Samsung printer ml 1510 red light flashes after self test


Red Error Light Stays On The following conditions can cause the On Line LED to glow solid red:
  • Printer paper is jammed inside your printer.
  • A cover is not be closed properly.
  • The toner cartridge is not inserted properly and needs to be reinstalled.
  • The toner cartridge is running low.
  • There is no paper in the paper tray.
  • The paper inside the paper tray is not be installed correctly.
Red Error Light Blinks If your printer's On Line LED is blinking red, your printer's toner is exhausted and needs to be replaced. On Line and Error Light Blink Simultaneously
If your printer's On Line and Toner Save LEDs blink simultaneously, your printer requires service.

New HL-5240 printer red status light upon powering up


My HL-5240 did the same thing, Here is what I found:

Look at the back of the printer. Pull down the back cover. Look to the right and the left of the exposed internals of the printer and there should be another handle/knob you can pull down. Pull these both down simultaneously and check to make sure there isn't a piece of paper in there! This was a shock to me! My office printer was held up for days until I found this hidden door in the back! I felt like an idiot that it was from a stupid paper jam!

Light keeps flashing red,amber, green


If you turn off the printer and turn it back on, do you get any noises, ie motor noises, or does it instantly go to all lights flashing?
If you get no noises this usually indicates a board fault and you should look for a new printer.

Red and Green lights are together blinking continiously


I had this problem. The cancel button was stucked. Open the toner tray and slighly push the button side top-cover up. It released the cancel button for me (actually I was trying to open the top, but it worked). The cancel button was released and the blinking red-green stopped. Printer now working.
