I changed the color ink in my d5160 printer and now the red light is flashing. i can't get the printer to reset it self.


Sorry to hear you are having problems with your printer. Here are some things to check.

1) Is cartridge inserted correctly and all tape remove from cartridge?
2) Are both cartridges in correct chamber?
3) Have you tried unplugging and letting stand for a minute or two and then replugging? (Hard Reset)
4) Do you get any error message on your screen?
5) Is paper fed into paper tray and pushed all of the way back?
6) What if any error message do you get on the computer itself in printers inside coontrol panel?

Let me know if these don't provide an answer and I will gladly assist further.

HP 2575 printer - paper jam message


Resetting the product may help with some false error messages. Press power button to turn printer off, unplug the power cord, wait a few seconds, plug it back in, press power button to turn printer back on. Any luck?

Attention light blinks after jam


Hi,
most of the HP printers will detect the paper jam and will provide you with help window automatically to rectify the problem. If paper gets jammed, just remove it from backside and then turn off the printer and power it on. cancel any pending printing documents. Everything have to become normal. If it not, try restarting your system too.
I hope its helpful to you

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.

Problem with HP 7450 and "Paper Jam"


hi, mezz

try this

There are 2 different types of flashing patterns with those two lights on the printer.
***
Resume light and power light BLINKING ALTERNATELY
Problem: Paper is jammed in the printer.
***
Resume blinking SIMULTANEOUSLY with power light

Problem:
The print cartridge carriage is stuck.

Solution:
1. Open the top of the printer.
2. Remove anything that is blocking the carriage path.
3. Turn the printer off.
4. Turn the printer on.

Problem:
There is something wrong with the printer. (I didn't write it, I am pulling this from actual HP tech documents, so don't blame me on this one) :)
Solution:
Turn the printer off.
Turn the printer on.
If the printer will not turn off, unplug the power cable from the electrical outlet or wall outlet.
Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer.
Wait about 30 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
Plug the power cord to the back of the printer.


oke, post in me back

tq
