Hp 1280 cartridge is not moving at all

A common issue with HP ink jet printers is the encoder strip gets dirt or ink on it. It is a plastic strip that has vertical lines all across it. The strip goes from one side to the other. You can clean it with an alcohol swab.

My hp laserjet 1012's top red light keeps blinking. could this happen because my ink is low?

I do believe that the red light blinks when the ink is running low.

Are you still able to use your printer, to print that is!
Consult the manual in this regard, only purchase a replacement ink toner when it has completely run out of ink.
Be sure to purchase the correct toner for this printer!

Thumbs up
Thanking you

Ink indicator keeps on blinking even with new ink cartridge.

The blinking ink light means that the printer does not recognize one of the ink cartridges. Power the printer off, pull out the power cord, wait for awhile, replug and turn the printer on. If the light no longer blinks, ok. If not, try installing another cartridge pair if you have them available - even if they are old used ones. If the ink light continues to blink with different cartridges or if you don't have any different cartridges, old or new, you have a dilemma. Do you want a new printer or do you want to continue to chase this problem. To chase this problem, get new cartridges and install them (half the price of a new printer). If that works your set, but if not you need to have your printer serviced which is doubtful that it is worthwhile doing so.

Blinking lights

The pads do need to be replaced. It is not as simple like the 1280. it does need to be taken into an authorized service center.
we are, and located in southern california.

I have taken the pads out and 95% of the time are all completely soaked. you can do what you did, but you will not get the full life out of a pad.

Put in new ink cartridge -- won't print

Try lifting up the cover. If the ink level is low in a print cartridge, the Print Cartridge Status light stops flashing. If the problem is not related
to low ink, the light continues to flash after the cover is opened. It might be that the new cartridge is defective. Check the connections and see if there isn't anything keeping it from making contact.
