Question about HP DeskJet 5650 InkJet Printer
The yellow light between the X and the arrow is blinking and the printer won't print. I have within the last few days changed both colour and black cartridges so cannot beliueve that they need changing. Have switched off electricity to printer and re-booted computer but did not make any difference. There is no paper jam and neither the printer nor the computer are giving me error mesages. The printer printed 1 sheet (normally and without marks indicating that the ink was running low) then refused to do anything else. Am afraid cannot find the printer manual so do not know what the problem is or how to solve it. Can you help?
Did you or one of your users have a paper jam recently and force the jam out of the printer? Because we've had a few 5650's do this after a jam. About 66% of the time this fixed it...
That said, I'm actually taking one apart that wasn't fixable this way right now. I think the problem may be something related to not recognizing if the cover is up/down, but still can't see why it happens or how that it is effected by the jam.

Is your printer lid all the way down? I had this issue frequently, and I found that the cover wasn't closing all the way, after I changed the ink cartridge. Once I got it closing properly, it worked fine

I had the same problem upon replacing the black ink cartridge. Turned out to be the cartridge. The second new one works fine.
