It's highly likely that your printer has reached the "service required" point but I couldn't be 100% sure.

I'd recommend downloading the SSC utility from SSCLG, get that installed and then follow the instructions for configuring to your printer model and resetting the protection and overflow counters.

If that works you'll then want to be thinking about cleaning the waste ink pads or installing an external waste kit.

If it doesn't work you have bigger problems and need to describe the flashing patterns and any other symptoms in detail.

Hope that helps.

My c5580 printer lights will flash and the printer window will say tune power off and then back on. and when i turn it back on it will not trun on unless i unplug it and plug back in . then after awhile...


Please remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Please snap the cartridges back into the cartridge carrier and please try to print a printer self test.
Good Luck!!!!

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.

Blinking red light, unable to turn off or print


From the looks of your printer. I'd say that one of your ink has a problem. The part where you put the cartridge in, is where your problem lies. YOu'll prob need to get it checked out by an HP dealer.

try changing the ink cartridge and see if that helps.

All three lights are flashing on my HP Deskjet 6127. I tried unplugging it from the power source and then plugging it back in. When I try to turn it on all three lights flash and it won't turn off with out...


Hi

The HP Deskjet 6127 has four buttons and three lights on the front panel

Flashing lights on the printer indicate the status of the printer

When all the lights are flashing, the printer may need to be restarted

try this 1st press the power button to turn off the printer, and then press the power button to it back on very quickly.

2nd press the power button to turn off the printer and hold it down.

Good luck

Cartridge Change HP Deskjet 932C


You don't have to replace them as a set unless there both empty. You could try resetting the printer by unplugging it, wait 30 seconds, replug it back in, and turn the power on.

Can't print


It flashes orange for a few seconds, and then back to green, and then back to orange every few seconds. I can't shut it off unless I unplug it. It also makes a horrible racket.
