Check the power supply cords; make sure they are attached properly. If you are using a power strip, surge protector or any other device where the power supply cord is not plugged directly into a wall outlet, bypass them and plug the printer into a wall outlet; see if that changes anything.
If that doesn't work, remove the printer's power cord from the outlet and all the other cables that the printer connects to the computer to.
Wait 5 or 10 minutes for the printer's CMOS and RAM chips to power off completely.
After enough time has elapsed, plug only the printer's power cord into the wall outlet (do not hook up any of the communication cables in e.g. USB, or serial cables, or network cables.)
Then press the power "on" button.

If the error message is gone, power off the printer.
Uninstall the printer and all its programs from the computer.
Do a clean install and follow the procedures of hooking up the printer as though you are installing it for the very 1st time.

You may have to obtain firmware and/or software updates from HP on your specific printer.

You may also have to check with your OS vendor to make sure you have all the updates/service packs on your PC or laptop

SOURCE: won't do anything!

Look under the cover where the print head is. Make sure the covers holding in the ink cartridges are snapped closed completely. Also, with the machine off try sliding the print head left to right and make sure nothing is obstructing it. Good luck

SOURCE: flashing on/off light on hp deskjet 3520 printer

Introduction The printer lights indicate the printer status. These lights can be on, off, or blinking (flashing), depending on the status of the printer. The sections below describe the most common combinations of blinking lights, how to fix the issue, and how the issue is caused. NOTE: The light patterns included in this document are described as blinking or flashing lights. For the purpose of this document, "flashing" means the same as "blinking." Blinking lights Printer lights can can blink for more than one reason, so the solution can vary. These solutions need not be performed in a specific order, but solutions for the most common issues are presented first. Blinking lights are often accompanied by an error message on the computer screen, which might help determine the solution. Issue: Power light is blinking

c00374282.gif Solution

Close the cover.

Cause

Printer cover is open. Solution

Insert appropriate media in the In tray.

Cause

The printer is out of paper. Solution

  • Change the printer's print mode setting.
  • Change the printer's paper type selection.
  • Use a different brand of label media.


Cause

The printer has difficulty picking up label media. Solution

Follow each of these steps until the problem is resolved:

  1. Remove the paper from both paper trays.
  2. Press the power button once. Wait a moment for the paper jam to clear.
  3. If printing labels, verify that a label did not become detached while passing through the printer. If the paper jam was not resolved, continue on to the next steps.
  4. Remove the rear access door.
  5. Remove the paper jam through the opening at the back of the printer.
  6. Replace the rear access door.
  7. Reload the paper into the paper In tray.
  8. Print the document.


Cause

There is a paper jam. Solution

Follow each of these steps until the problem is resolved:

  1. Remove and then reinsert the print cartridge(s) into the printer.
  2. Clean the print cartridges automatically using the Clean Cartridges option in the Printer Assistant.
  3. Manually clean the print cartridges and print cartridge cradles:
    • Open the printer cover and wait until the carriage moves to the center.
    • Press the Power button to turn off the printer.
    • Disconnect power cord from the back of the printer.
    • Remove the print cartridges and place them on a piece of paper with the nozzle plate facing up.
    • Lightly moisten a cotton swab with distilled water.
    • Clean the face and edges of the print cartridges with the swab. Do not touch the print cartridge ink nozzles or copper contacts.
    • Wipe the underside of the print cartridge cradle walls using a clean, moistened swab.
    • Reinsert the print cartridges.
    • Close the printer cover.
    • Connect the power cord to the back of the printer.
    • Press the Power button to turn on the printer.
  4. Calibrate the print cartridges.
  5. If the light is still flashing, replace the print cartridges.


Cause

There is a problem with a print cartridge. Solution

  1. Print a printer self-test by holding the power button down with a pencil and opening and closing the top cover four times.
  2. Check the nozzle self-test pattern in the self-test print out. If one or more of the solid rectangular areas are missing, an electrical contact problem may be present.
  3. Remove and then reinsert the print cartridge(s) into the printer.
  4. Print the document.
  5. If the problem persists, follow the steps listed above for cleaning the print cartridges and print cartridge cradle.
  6. Try printing again. If the problem continues, replace the print cartridges.


Cause

The print cartridge has partial loss of electrical interface with the carriage connections.

My printer is hp deskjet 4625 fls advice me. there is a problem with the printer or ink system. turn printer off, then on. if problem persists, contact hp error. 0xc 19a0022


You may try to reset the printer. I was not sure if you followed these steps and unplugged the power cord. That may fix your problem. Good luck this can be very frustrating.
In some cases, a printer reset can clear the error message.
  1. Turn the printer on, if it is not already on.
  2. Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you continue.
  3. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  4. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  5. Wait at least 60 seconds.
  6. Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
    NOTE: HP recommends connecting the printer power cord directly to the wall outlet.
  7. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
  8. Turn on the printer, if it does not automatically turn on.The printer might go through a warm-up period. The printer lights might flash, and the carriage might move.
  9. Wait until the warm-up period finishes and your printer is idle and silent before you proceed.

The lights on my hp psc 1410 all in one printer is always on and not goin off. I have manually unpluged it and pluged it back in after a few mins and all the lights appear but no sound is coming from it...


Try a Reset. This is from the HP Web Site:

Unplug the power cord from the unit. Reconnect the power cord into the unit. When the lights begin to flash, press and hold the On/Resume and Paper Size buttons. When only the On/Resume light is flashing, release the buttons. When the On/Resume light is steady, the reset is complete.

All the lights are flashing and it says to Reset power. I disconnect the power cord and reconnect. The system looks like it is resetting and then the same flashing lights appear and it again says to Reset...


Hi Joe,

Lets try 2 steps:

1st approach:
1. With the printer “ON” unplug the power cord form the printer.
2. With the printer now unplugged, press and hold “# and 6′ keys in the printer..
3. While still holding these keys down, plug the power cord back.
4. Wait until the screen goes blank before you release those keys.
5. Follow on printer screen instructions.

2nd approach:
1. Unplug the power cord
2. Wait for 30 seconds.
3. Plug the power cable back in the printer and turn it on.
(repeat 3 times)

If none of these to approaches work, I’m afraid the failure is “fatal” as the main circuit board might be fried L

Regards,
Ed

please try the following:

Need help urgently


Try unplugging the printer from the computer, then turn off the printer with the Power button, next unplug the power cord from the printer for 5 minutes or longer, now plug the power cable back in and turn on printer without connecting to the computer. If the lights have stopped flashing, reconnect to the computer (if using USB) or power off first if using a parallel cable.

Add comment if still having trouble. Hope this helps.

Flashing lights


That flashing pattern is consistent with a stuck carriage. Here is a copy/paste from HP concerning the 5000 series and your flashing lights.

Issue

The print cartridge carriage is stuck.

Solution

1. Open the top access door on the printer.

2. Remove the ink cartridges.

3. Close the cartridge flaps after removing the ink cartridges.

4. Turn the printer off, then on again.

5. Replace the ink cartridges.

6. Close the top access door. Issue

The Resume light continues to blink after the cartridges are released.

OR

The carriage is stuck or makes a grinding noise.

Solution

1. Lift the top cover to the printer.

2. Turn the printer off and then on again.

3. Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer when the grinding noise starts. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.

4. Move the carriage towards the middle of the printer (this procedure may take a couple of tries to get the timing correct).

5. Take out the cartridges and close the top cover.

6. Reconnect the power cord to the back of the printer. Plug the power cord to the wall outlet.

7. Open the top cover, reinstall the cartridges, and then close the top cover.
