If you cleaned the scanner glass before the problem began, it sounds like you messed up the homing strip underneath the glass. The scanner is trying and trying to find its home position and it can't. There is no way to disable the scanner to use the other functions. This is the downside to All-in-One machines. If one function (most commonly the scanner) stops working the entire machine won't work. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I always caution people against buying all-in-one machines for this reason. It sounds like you'll need to buy a new printer, unless your printer is magically still under warranty you could call HP and ask what they can do for you. They'll probably just recommend you buy a new machine anyway.

HP Deskjet F4180 colour lights flashing and printer offline


Hi I have exactly the same problem, and can't scan or make copies. I went to HP Online, and tried their advice, which didn't work. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00867129&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3177566&rule=25623〈=enHP's solution made me realise it might be a scanner problem. I made a wild guess and kept the cover above the glass panel open. Turn off your printer, lift the cover up and turn on again. The lights should stop blinking and you should be able to scan/copy/print. I guess the cover prohibits the device to scan properly causing the blinking lights. Hope this helps!

HP PSC 1410 will not print, printer icon is no longer on the bottom right hand corner of screen either. When i turn off the printer and turn it back on it prints the test page only.


Dear kappa, It is the problem related "Alignment of cartridge" your printer is working properly, I am suggesting a method, with the help of this method you will never get test page until you lift out your cartridge from your printer. When next time printer print a test page, take it and put it into the scanner, remember the printing area should be the side of mirror and the printer prints on the above side of the paper should be left side of the scanner. And press scan button, you will see the green light will be blink and a voice of scanner you will hear. After 30 seconds light will stop blinking, Next time when you will turn on your printer, it will not print test page.

Test page and scanner


Hey satz, Take that test page, and put it into scanner, (Printed area will be on mirror side) then press scan button "Bottom left side of your printer". After stopping the fluctuation of light you will never face that problem. This error appears when you turn out the cartridge from your printer. sanjeev manglamenterprises@hotmail.com
