Go into your control panel, go to your printer, right click it, then choose "Cancel all print jobs". You may also have to uncheck the "Pause Printing" function.
If all else fails, get the cd. remove the printer and reinstall the software after shutting the printer down and start from scratch just like it was new. If neither of those solve it, go to http://www.hp.com and download your owners manual. There you will find a troubleshooting section that will help walk you through what to do. Hope that helps.

Printer blinking red and showing letter E


Error description:

The Attention (red) light is blinking. There are six possible causes that will display the Attention light pattern:

-Paper out
-Door open
-Print cartridge missing
-Paper jam
-Paper sensor jammed
-Duplexer error

Solution :
After the cause of the problem has been addressed, pressing GO will cause the printer to attempt to recover from the cause of the error. If the printer is unsuccessful, it will continue to display the Attention message until the cause is remedied.

Pressing JOB CANCEL will cancel the print job and the printer will return to the Ready state (Ready light on) unless there is a paper jam still in the printer or the print cartridge is not in the printer.

Disconnect the "data" cable between the printer and your computer.
Turn the printer on.
If the light still flashes, you have a "paper jam".
If you cannot "clear" it yourself, take the printer to a qualified technician, for servicing.

On your computer:
Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Printers
Double-click the icon for your printer.
Click on the "suspended" (or "active") print-job, to "select" it.
Right-mouse-click on the print-job, and choose "cancel".

Answer Part 1 of 2

An error has occurred in the printer. The number of flashes indicates the type of error, as outlined below. Check the cause and take appropriate action.
Two flashes: Out of paper or paper feed error
Reload the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
Three flashes: Paper jam
If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, reload the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
See Paper Jams
Four flashes: Ink tank is not installed properly
Open the Print Head Cover and check whether an ink tank is installed. If an ink tank is installed, push the button of the ink tank, and reinstall the ink tank properly.
Five flashes: No Print Head installed, or Print Head failure
Install a Print Head.
When the error continues, contact a Canon service representative.
Eight flashes: Waste ink absorber almost full
Ink used for cleaning is absorbed in a waste ink absorber placed in the printer. Eight flashes indicate that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so that you can continue printing.
Important
If this error occurs, replacement of the waste ink absorber and maintenance of the printer are required. Canon recommends to contact a Canon service representative as soon as possible. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, it cannot be printed until the Waste ink tank is exchanged.

Nine flashes: A specified period of time has lapsed without receiving a response from a digital camera or digital video camcorder / The digital camera or digital video camcorder connected is not compatible with this printer

Turn off your PC, turn off the printer. Open the printer and check for paper jams, push/pull the ink cartridge carrier left to right to ensure it also isn't jammed.

Only use a small amount of paper (10 sheets). Too much paper can sometimes block the feeder

Turn everything back on, try again.
