The printer was working fine. I recently changed to have it print two-sided pages by default. I was printing a job and realized I wanted it to be only one-sided so I pressed the stop button. The printing stopped and I withdrew the page from the back that had been printing. I hit reset but the amber light still flashed. I opened up the top, took out the cartridge, pulled out the drawer, opened the back to make sure no paper was still in there, unplugged everything and restarted it, but still get the flashing light. Any suggestions. Thank you.

Switch off the printer, re connect the net work cable, switch on the machine & wait till ready mode comes.. Go to administration on control panel, select configure device,select configuration page, print,, total three print out will come, in that see the IP address.. If any IP address showing, ping that IP from system, if its pings, reload the drivers once again.. check for the print. If no IP adress showing in configuration page, try with another net work cable & try above said exercise.. Even no luck, remove formatter from the slot & re-fix once again & try... Even no luck.. it might be network port faulty. If its warranty contact HP support for free replacement.. If no warranty purchase HP620n or higher version of zetdirect card(net work card) install it... But take service engineers suggestion before replacing the network card..
There should be setting in you printer settings or options, if you posted the actual printer name and model people may be able to help you better! If you only want to do a one off print job, print all the odd pages only. turn them over and print the even pages.
I had same issue. I checked two sided printing, but wanted it to take the paper back in to the printer automatically. I did not have the duplex option selected in properties and it was showing how to do it by feeding the pages manually. Go to printer properties and printer preferences and I think the tab labeled page layout, you may have to select the advanced button to find the 2-sided options for flipping short end or long end. (you want flip on long end if you want the top of page 2 to be on the opposite side of page one. Other wise, flip on short end will put the top of page 2 opposite from the bottom of page 1). however, AUTOMATIC 2-sided printing will not work unless your model has the duplex printing feature. In that case you just need to go to properties and un-check two sided printing and check one sided printing. That way it will not keep wasting paper and showing you how to do it manually. So you don't have to do it for each print job make sure you change it in printer preferences so it does not keep trying to do 2 sided printing. If there is a job you want to print 2 sided then just select it in properties for that particular print job.
It seems you have a problem with your printer's page and document settings. To correct this problem run
the Preferences application and change the default settings. Select the
Printer button. In the next window, select the 'Change Defaults..'
button. Change both the Document size and the Paper size to a height of
10.875 and click OK.
Try a new document to see if the paper size is
correct. You may need to go back and change the height a few times until
it is correct (the height changes in .125 increments). Usually either
10.875 (for 1/4 inch forced top margin printers) or 10.75 ( for 1/2 inch
forced top margin printers) will work.

(duplex) as the default setting for all print jobs (even single page

Close the Printers or Printers and Faxes folder.
Note:In this scenario, all print jobs, even single print jobs, will be
treated as Print on Both Sizes (automatic duplexing) for media that is
supported by the duplexing unit. For media that is not supported by the
duplexing unit, the job will be treated as Print on Both Sides
(Manually) (manual duplex).

Following are the reasons and its solution for amber light keeps flashing:
1. Toner have been empty. Sol : Refill you toner. 2. Printer's paper tray do not close properly or paper in not in the tray. Sol : Close the paper tray properly and keep some papers in the tray. 3. Any door of printer is open or not properly close. Sol. : Check all the doors that is close properly or not.
If problem is still remaining then contact a professional to repair this printer.
if you using office go to page setup and select the tray(s) that you want to use for the first page and other pages ( both must be the same ) unless you only want the first page as letter head and the rest on plain paper or something along those lines ?
Also if you go into the properties of the printer and go to advanced and then click on the printing defaults button and see if the options in there are the same or different to whats in printing preferences.
If they are set to tray 1 then it will default to tray 1
