There are a couple of mechanical things that can cause the printer light to flash. Now, this is by no means the technical explanation of these items but... they may help.

Okay, the first item is the lid sensor. If the lid gets stuck this sensor will cause the resume light to blink. To do this, lift the lid on the printer, locate the sensor (black plastic arm
located on the right side of the right lid hinge), and move the sensorup and down to unstick it. Close the lid and the light should stop
flashing.

If the above does not resolve the problem, then it may be the paper sensor on the unit. To locate the paper sensor you must remove the entire paper tray. To remove the paper tray, grab and pinch the two prongs underneath the paper tray. The paper tray should come loose and easily be removed from the printer. Now, on the right hand side of the printer, about 4 inches up you will see a free standing black arm. Try moving this arm back and forth to free it up. Then reinstall the paper tray.

If neither of these items work, then try cleaning the printer contacts on the printer cartridge and in the printer carriage (where cartridge sits). When cleaning the contacts on the cartridge, use a clean, dry, soft cloth. Only wipe one time
from the top to the bottom (nozzle end) of the flex circuit.
Do not wipe the nozzles. The reason for this is that the contacts are coated with a lubricant that can potentially be removed if water is used. Removing the lubricant can potentially damage the cartridge or the printer.
If the cleaning does not resolve the problem, then try a TWO NEW cartridges.

If all of the above steps do not resolve the problem, you will want to contact Hp for service.

The Power button turns the printer on and off. It takes approximately five seconds for the printer to turn on after you press the Power button. The green light above the Power button flashes when printing is in progress. Caution! Always use the Power button on the front of the printer to turn the printer on and off. Using a power strip, surge protector, or a wallmounted switch to turn the printer on and off may cause premature printer failure

The light on the right is flashing red.

- If the power light is flashing it means that your printer may be receiving data.
- If the resume light is flashing you may be out of paper, or you may have a paper jam, you may be printing a two sided document by hand and the first side has finished printing.
- If the print cartridge status light is flashing that means the top cover may be open, of there may be a problem with one of the cartridges.
- If all of the lights are flashing the printer may need to be reset.

Hope this helps.

Out of paper light flashes even after paper is loaded


Flashing resume light also can mean:

1. cartridge is missing or an incorrect print cartridge is installed
2. cartridge is out of ink
3. dirty cartridge contacts
4. paper jammed

Check are cartridges firmly snapped into place and not empty. Use water to wash copper on cartridges if contacts are dirty.

Paper does not feed from Tray 1.


Check your printer settings.

Sometimes if your printer or the program you are printing from has the paper source set to "Letter" it waits for you to press the continue key on the printer which allows you to insert headed note paper before printing.

If it is set to letter, change it to A4 and this should solve your problem

You may need to change this in both the printer settings and/or each program from which you are printing
