Try uninstalled the printer driver and reinstall it, your driver could be corupt. Do this as follow : I assum that your running on windows XP. Go on start menu-Control Panel then double-click on the printers and faxes icon, click on your printer and press delete on your keyboard and confirm that you want to delete the priner. After that make sure your printer is powered on and attatch to your computer. Reboot your computer, if windows does not reinstall it by itself, reinstall it with the original cd. It should work after reinstallation.

The on button light flashing only.


Welcome to FixYa!

A blinking power light for HP DeskJet D2360 means 3 things.

1. The cover is open.
Close the printer cover properly.
2. There is no loaded paper or the paper in the paper tray is not loaded properly.
Load the paper properly in to the paper tray.
3. Paper Jam and/or Carriage Jam.
Follow the instructions below.

> Turn of the printer and unplug the power cord at the back of your printer.
> Open the back door of the printer.

> Close the back door of the printer.

> Open the front cover of the printer
> Move the carriage (where the ink cartridge sits) left and right. Make sure that it moves freely.
Remove any paper or foreign objects that is preventing it from moving freely.

> Turn the printer on using the power button.

If it doesn't not resolve the issue, reset the printer.
1. Turn the printer on.
2. Unplug the power cord at the back of your printer while it is on.
3. Unplug the USB cable at the back of your printer while it is on.

Hp deskjet d2360 power led blinking,printout also not coming. change the new catridge. same problem occuring.


Try removing and reinserting the cartridges. Remove and reinsert the USB Cable from the back of the printer. Unplug the power cord and plug it back in from the back of the printer.
If the printer is still turned off use the power button to turn it on.

There might be documents that are stuck on the queue. So in order for you to remove that.
Type services.msc on the run command if you OS is a Windows XP. If it's Vista or 7. Type it in the search box on your start menu.
Look for Print Spooler under the list of services.
Right Click on the Print Spooler, Click Stop Right Click on the Print Spooler again and click Start.
Restart the computer.
Try Printing again. ^_^

My HP DeskJet 712c InkJet Printer's "ink light" won't stop blinking!! I have tried changing ink cardridges, checking for paper jams, unplugging and replugging cords and re-starting computer. None...


Hello.

Give this a try:

1. Power off your printer
2. Remove and reinsert the cartridges. You should hear a "click" when properly seated.
3. Power on printer.
4. If light is out, print a test page for realignment.

Note: Be certain that the tab is removed from the cartridges and you are using "genuine" HP cartridges.

Hope this helps.

Hi Jeje,

The Printer has a fatal error. Please try the below steps, if it didn't work you have to service the printer.

Power Drain:

  1. Use the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn the product off.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the back of the product and then unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Press and hold power button for 60 seconds (Discharges static power in the capacitors).
  4. Wait 60 seconds and then connect the power cord to the back of the product.
  5. Plug the other end of the power cable directly into a wall outlet. Do not use a power strip, extension cord, or surge protector.
  6. Use the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn the product on.
  7. Try the print job again. If the lights still blink, continue with the next step.

NVM Reset:

  1. Remove the ink cartridges and close the door.
  2. While the printer is ON, unplug the power cable from backside of the printer.
  3. Press and hold "cancel" and "Start Color copy" button. While holding the button connect the power cable.

My HP deskjet won't scan to my computer, the power button just blinks when I hit 'scan' The make and model is HP Deskjet F4180


The HP Photosmart Software must also be installed and running on the computer before scanning.

Check that the USB cable is firmly plugged in to the printer and computer. Unplug the power cord both from the wall socket, and the printer. Wait 60 seconds. Re-attach the power cord securely. Power on. Try the scan again.

Under normal circumstances, a blinking power button just means that the machine is busy with a task. Be sure to let it finish its current task before initiating another.

Both the orange and the green lights are blinking and printer will not print.


The printer is waiting to receive a document to print. Choose the print command from the software program that you are using.

Wait for the printer to complete the current task.

OR

If the printer continues to blink after several seconds, follow these steps:
    1. Turn the printer off, and then turn it back on.
    2. If it does not turn off, unplug the power cord from the back of the printer.
    3. Unplug the power cord from the power source. Wait 30 seconds.
    4. Plug the power cord into the back of the printer.
    5. Plug the power cord into the power source.
  • Restart the computer and the printer. Try printing again.
  • Make sure there is a direct connection from the printer to the computer. Remove scanners, switchboxes, and so on.
  • Try another cable.
  • Try connecting the printer to another computer. If the printer prints, then the problem was with the main computer, possibly a software or device conflict

Offline and blinking lights


A couple suggestions. Unplug the usb cable from the pc to the printer, make sure there is no paper jammed in the machine, unplug the machine from the wall and see if you can move the print head left to right freely. If nothing is obstructing it plig the power cord in with out the usb cord plugged in. See if the machine goes to ready. If all of these fail, that means the main board has been damaged by a power surge, and it would be cheaper to replace the machine than repair it. Good luck!
