There is a green lighted key on the side of the lock on my hp deskjet 6980 printer and the printer does not print. How do I get this light off so that my printer can print. The printer is hooked up to a wireless connection.

When the camera is connected correctly, the Connection light is
illuminated. The Connection light blinks green when printing from the
camera. If the camera is not PictBridge-compatible or is not in PictBridge
mode, the Error light flashes.
On the HP 6980 et al printers the right side of the lid does not completely close. The reason is a design flaw. If you pull the bottom of the right side cover out no more than 3/8" to release the clips and then lift it up you will reveal the lid gears and lid closed switch pawl. The area where the switch pawl contacts the lid gear needs generous lubrication. If that fails then removing the sharp edges of the contacting areas will be required and then the lubrication.
I had this issue with my 6988 printer---the solution was to unplug the power cord and then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds---thus draining off the static charge in the printer--- plug power cord back in---good to go.
