It is showing a triangle with excalamtion mark blinking

That would be the attention light.... Indicates that the input tray is empty, the print- cartridge door is open, or bad toner. Is there any lights that are on solid or flashing? (could also have a bad fuser ... need to trouble shoot this a little more)
If you hit the green button does it do anything?

I am trying to print a document and the Triangle with the Exclamation mark is flashing. What does this indicate?

that means atention:)
Maybe toner is low. Don't worry and keep on printing until you can. But if you can't print then maybe you have a paper jam. Look for problems with paper and restart printer

I have a HP LasterJet P2015. I am trying to print multiple page PDF file documents and after one page has printed, the triangle and "!" light flashes and a print out says insufficient memory. How do I...

Open Printer options and reduce the print quality. It is probably 1200dpi. Make it 600 and try the print again.
You may also add more printer memory to print complex documents on highest resolution possible.

My printer won't print. (HP P2015dn)

If the triangle is on and the powe light is on too, is a Manual Feed or Continuable Error

This state can be reached in the following circumstances:
Manual feed,

General continuable error
  • Memory configuration error
  • Personality/Job related errorSOLUTION: To recover from the error and print whatever data is possible, press theGo button.If the recovery is successful, the printer goes to the Processing Data state and completes the job.If the recovery is unsuccessful, the printer returns to the Continuable Error state
    another reason is that the cartridge cap may be open or not closed, remove the cartridge and put it again, should work

    If you've put a dimm memory (memory expandable to one side of the printer, remove it and try one more time

    if you did not work, it may be a fan failure the printer, or the engine, or the DC controller, if that is your problem is preferable to contact an authorized hp.

    I have the same machine, it is good quality, and does not give many problems. regards

Light on. Exclamation mark within a triangle. Printing fine and clear. What does tis symbol mean?

This light is indeed designed to indicate a low toner condition. Its coming on is triggered not by the actual level of toner in the cartridge, but by a software process that estimates toner use. If you are inclined to refill your own cartridges, you can use install a glass fuse in the little clip on the back of the toner cartridge that will reset the counter, and turn out the light, otherwise the light will stay on. The reset process will blow the fuse, so a new fuse is needed each time a cartridge is refilled. Leaving the light lit does not hinder the operation of the printer, so as long as there is still sufficient toner to print, the printer will operate normally.

Flashing triangular light with the exclamation mark inside it.

Clear the printer queue on the computer (double-click the printer icon in the tray or in the Printers and Faxes folder and cancel all documents listed). Then power off the printer and disconnect the power - remove the paper from the paper tray until you have the printer memory cleared as to not waste paper.

Flashing light

Here is what HP has on the subject of the triangle light flashing:
c00028322.gif 1 - Attention Light 2 - Ready Light 3 - Go Light Figure 2: Printer light key c00028323.gif 1 - Symbol for light off 2 - Symbol for light on 3 - Symbol for light blinking
c00028328.gif Door open, media out, no print cartridge, or media jam

The printer is in an error state that requires operator intervention or help. Check the following:
  • The print cartridge door is completely closed.
  • Media is loaded.
  • The print cartridge is correctly installed in the printer.
  • There is no media jam.

Figure 8: Paper jam c00028328.gif 13.JJ.NT JAM IN TRAY 1


The Attention LED is blinking. Check paper loading then open and close top cover.

When there is a jam in tray 1, verify the paper is loaded correctly, open and close the top cover. Pressing GO is ignored.

When there is a jam in tray X, verify the paper is loaded correctly, open and close the top cover. Pressing GO is ignored. These are the error explanations for just the flashing triangle light, there are many more, but none for just the flashing triangle.

If the light pattern is different let me know (other lights on as well)
-Hope this helps.
