As for the Power light flashing, maybe due to the fact your trying to print while the printer is offline it might flash to notify you or check this link...

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.

Ink cartridge installed but cartridge light continues to blink


Have you only replaced the magenta cartridge, or have you also tried the print head. A bad print head can cause the ink to read as empty or clogged.

It was suggested that I buy a new printer cartridge for my HP Deskjet 845c rather than use a refill, which causes the cartridge light to blink. I did go out and buy new cartridges for both color and black...


i dont know if anyone has logged this, but i would think that logically the lights would continue to blink until it detects the right amount of ink density and If they are chipped that the chip registers correctly. Ttry installing just one of the cartridges ( the cheaper one)

Hp Deskjet 845c printer's cartridge light blinks constantly.


It probably has, the printer might not detect your cartridges properly, try using new ones

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.
