Question about HP LaserJet P2015dn Printer

The blinking light

God I hate this machine. Can someone explain to me what the symbols on the top of the machine mean? From the bottom they are; the broken circle aka the horseshoe, the triangle with the exclamation mark, the piece of paper (i get this one), the beaker full of marbles, and then the two circles with a squiggly line coming out between them.

I'm particularly interested in the two circles with the squiggly line as that one is blinking and I have no idea what is wrong with the machine. Thanks everyone.

What do symbols on top mean?

Welcome to Fixya

Half circle symbol means printer is in ready state. The printer control panel is comprised of six lights and two buttons. The lights produce patterns that identify the printer status.

1 Jam light: Indicates that there is a jam in the printer.
2 Toner light: When the print cartridge is low, the Toner light illuminates. When the print cartridge is out of the printer,
the Toner light blinks.
3 Paper out light: Indicates that the printer is out of paper.
4 Attention light: Indicates that the print-cartridge door is open or other errors exist.
5 Ready light: Indicates that the printer is ready to print.
6 Go button and light: Initiates action or indicates status.
7 Cancel button: To cancel the print job that is currently printing, press the Cancel button.

Thank you for using Fixya!

My printer has an orange light showing next to a symbol which looks like a beaker with a triangle of 6 dots in it. What does this symbol mean? Thanks

It the light is solid then the toner is low. If the light is blinking the toner cartridge is missing and has been removed

Machine has an error code & won't print. We have no manual.

If the lamp is on solid that is a cancel job or reset printer indicator
If the lamp is blinking (flashing) that is the secondary Jam error meaning somewhere in the paper path is a jam. The lamp shoul dbe blinking in a sequense - that sequence indicates what are of the printer the jam is. So the lamp should blink a number of times, pause then blink the same number again.

1 blink - jam in feeder sensor
2 blink - jam in manual feed
3 blink - jam under toner
4 blink - jam in output are
5 blink - jam in tray 1
6 blink - jam in tray 2 (if present/option)

Slow blinking error flashing

You have to see how the led is blinking and to compare with the table that explains every blink what means. If you don't have this table, contact me and I'll send it to you.

Nothing will print; blinking amber light

Are you out of ink? when you open the lid to the printer while it is turned on look at were your ink cartridge stops and that will tell you if you are out of colour or black ink. Which light is blinking the one on top of the paper symbol or the one on top of the ink symbol. It may be that your cartridge either black or white just need to be taken out and put back in I found that if I wiped the bottom of the ink cartridge where sometimes you get build up that it would work again or give it a shake but make sure you cover up the bottom were the ink comes out before you shake it. Hope this helps!

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.
