Question about HP Photosmart D5160 InkJet Printer
Paper jammed and I pulled the paper out from the front and not from the back, as recommended.
Attention light blinks, while a dash follows a rectangular pattern on the display.
The Power button stays on and the print button stays off.
If I press the power button, the printer turns off, then turns back on.
Could not find this problem on HP, but went thru the reset procedure, anyway, which didn't help.
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
