Power light is blinking: no paper jammed HP DeskJet D1460


Hi

The power light is blinking because one of your cartridges are bad. Hence need replacement. Try with the black cartridge as normally this goes bad.

I changed the black and color ink cartridges on my Lexmark 2500 printer but both of the ink lights continue to blink off and on. I'm unable to get the printer to reset by disconnecting the printer and...


Make sure you are inserting the correct versions of cartridges for your model. Try to re-seat the cartridges by removing and re-inserting the cartridges in the carrier. The black cartridge goes in the left carrier while the color goes in the right. Also, make sure you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges.

Blinking/flashing lights(orange & green) & won;t pring. Have rebooted computer and unpluged printer. still won't print.


that is because ur head of ur printing cartridge is damaged.

remove ur cartridges black as well as color
n install only black cartridge n check d blinking of lights on ur printer if it doesn't blinks it's mean ur black cartridge is OK but ur blinking of light on ur printer is same it's mean ur head of black cartridge is damaged
after this process remove the black one cartridge and install the color one cartridge n check d blinking of lights on ur printer if it doesn't blinks it's mean ur color cartridge is OK but ur blinking of light on ur printer is same it's mean ur head of color cartridge is damaged
now take a dry cotton cloth n gently clean ur cartridges head install both cartridges on ur printer n check ur blinking light on ur printer that will work only if u r too lucky other wise u have to purchase a one cartridge.

Green light blinks continuously, printer will not print. Has always worked well until now. Cartridges are in place, printer has paper, is connected to power and to computer. Is there a reset?


One or both print head are defective.Open cover put out color cartridge then close cover.If blinking stops replace color cartridge.If blinking continues put out black cartridge and put in color.If blinking stops replace black cartridge, if not stop replace both cartridges.If this not help your printer need service.

Blinking Light with no cartridge problems


I believe this is normal with HP deskjets. I have a different model but HP deskjet 3740, which also gives a blinking light when there is a pending print job and or printer has run out of paper. I usually get rid of this problem by putting some paper and most importantly removing and re-plugging the printer power cord (which does a basic power reset on the printer and causes a refresh of pending print jobs). I hope this works for you too.

My printer hp deskjet d2460 is never stop blinking


I have experienced the same problem. What i did was to find out what causes the problem. Since i have experienced that problem after changing my black cartridge (HP21), i have a hint that one of the cartridges is defective. Here's what i did which solved my problem:

>> I checked both catridges by removing it (one at a time - then closing the printer cover) and wait if the light will stop blinking.
>> If the light stops blinking, then the cartridge that you have removed is the defective one.

Hope this will solve your printer problem.

Power Light Continues to blink.


if you are having issues after installing the new cartridges , then perform the following steps.

unplug the power adapter and remove both the cartridges and then power on the printer , look for the power light. if it does not blink then .
install the black cartridge first and then try to print , if it prints fine its ok. then remove the black cartridge and then put the color one in and then try printing or copying .

if it doesnot print with any either black/ color then you have to replace that particular caratridge..

lemme know once u r done....

It will not print.


Hi Greenhorn, Your info is slightly conflicting - I think. As I remember the C60 has just 2 LED's: 1 - Green for Power 2 - Red for Error The third button - Cartridge exchange - has no LED Now it is a while since I looked at a C60 and my brain leaks like a sieve, but that's the way I remember it and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. The error codes I remember are: Printer status - Indicators - Priority Power - Error Power ON condition On - Ink sequence Blink - Ink Cartridge change mode Blink - Data processing Blink - Paper Out *1 - On Paper jam condition *1 - On Ink end (Black) *1 - On -> Blink Ink level low (Black) - Blink-> Blink Ink end (Color) *1 - On -> Blink2 Ink level low (Color) - Blink-> Blink2 Ink end (Black and Color) - On -> On No Ink Cartridge (Black or Color) *1 - On Maintenance request (Ink Overflow Countererror) *1 Alt Blink Alt Blink Fatal error *1 Off On Special setting Blink2 Blink2
