Re: flashing lights

Hi, I work on these on a regular basis and have seen the problem many times. Almost every single time it's caused by a faulty fuser (fixing) unit. They are fairly easy to replace but they run in the 2-300$ range in cost. Good luck.

All the lights on my HP C4795 keep flashing and I can't print


I will suggest you try reset the printer, follow the instruction below to reset your printer, if the problem still persist, replace the cable that connects the printer to the power outlet. If that did not still fix the problem, you will need to reinstall the driver of the printer, you can get it at HP web site.

1. Without turning the unit off, unplug the power cord from the back of the product.
2. Press and hold # and 6 keys.
3. While holding those keys plug the power cord back in.
4. Wait until the screen goes blank before you release those keys.
5. Follow on printer screen instructions.

If that did not fix the problem, try this,
  1. Unplug the power cable from printer while the printer is powered on.
  2. Press and hold OK and HELP buttons while plugging in the power cord. Wait for the screen to go black or blank before releasing the keys.
  3. Just turn on the printer and configure your printer new..

My HP 2210 PSC all in one printer has all 4 lights flashing and tells me to remove and check cartridges. I have replaced both color and black and whited with new ones but still tells me to check and remove...

Unplug the printer for 15 minutes and plug it back in. You need to clear the memory out of the printer, and by unpluging it for that long usually does the trick.

Flashing lights.. when i turn power off it just does same thing

All lights flashing indicates a "fatal error" condition, so the printer just needs to be reset:

1. Turn the HP c3180 off.
2. Unplug the power cord.
3. Wait a minute, then plug the power cord
back in.
4. Turn the HP c3180 back on.

This should clear the system error and restore the printer to its "out-of-the-box" default settings.
