My hp deskjet 5150 won't print!

Ever since last night, my printer wouldn't print, the arrow on the left won't flash orange, and everytime I press it, it prints up a page that says the "Hp" logo on it. when I took out the ink cartrades and put them back in, and slammed the computer shut tight,the arrow kept flashing orange and the power button. I did it again and it stopped, but the power button remained green. What do I do because I have an important project due tomorrow please help!!!!!

Open t cover, behind t catrage u will find a steel rod. Clean t rod with cotton but make sure t cotton or any thing dosn't touch plastic strip which is behind that rod. After cleaning t rod take a cotton bud dipped in machine oil and grease t rod. then close t cover and let t catrage move.

If u have given print command cancle it and restart ur pc. Your printer will work properly. This problem will come again so make sure u keep t rod clean ( clean it once a week or accordind to ur use).

It occurs due to t carbon.

Replace both cartridges, power down and try again. The blinking light stopped and now I'm able to bring. Had gone through powering down four times before doing this.

Flashing orange arrow . cant get anything to print

Try taking out the print cartridges and then putting them back in and make sure they are really well inserted when you replace them. Then slam the lid down to really make sure its shut and it should resolve the problem.
