See this notice about the flashing light. Then see this article, particularly step 4. You may need to clear the print queue & restart the print spooler. Make sure you reboot your system. If that doesn't correct the issue, try a power reset as described here before uninstalling or reinstalling the printer software.
The printer uses your system memory to print from, and communication glitches do occur.
Good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

How to find ink levels in hp932c printer


Print Cartridge Status The Print Cartridge Status Light flashes when one or both of your print cartridges are low on ink, improperly installed, or malfunctioning. It will also flash if you are trying to use the wrong print cartridge type. If the problem is low ink, the light will stop flashing when you open the top cover. For any other print cartridge-related problem, the Print Cartridge Status Light will continue to flash. To check the status of your print cartridges, open the printer's top cover. The yellow arrow on the print cartridge cradle aligns with one of five Print Cartridge Status icons.

Hl-1440 printer red, yellow lights keep flashing on and off prints ok what is it


Normally nothing to e alarmed about. As you said, it still appera to print okay. This flasing is a warning that your toner is low and will soon need to be replaced. If you recently replaced the toner artridge and know this not to be the case, print out a supplies status page from the onboard menu to see if it show low. Sometimes we are not aware of how much we have printed, hence the warning and the printer is usually right.

How to find number of pages printed from a brother HL 5250N


Turn on the printer.
Once it is on and the status light is on, press the Go button 6 time. Status light turns yellow and printer will print off internal configuration - including number of pages printed. Should be 3 pages. This report also includes the percentage used of toner, drum, laser, and fuser.

HP Laserjet 1300 yellow light STILL flashing


Re-installing the print driver will not solve a flashing light. If the printer is functionally ok, it will come to ready simply by plugging into the wall. It sounds to me like a fatal error at this point.....could be a long list of things, but I would lean towards a formatter board. bottom line with this printer at this point in it's life is, if it doesn't work, it's not worth fixing. Replaceable for about $100.

HP LASERJEY 1300 YELLOW LIGHT FLASHING


Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
