    orange light and black cartridge keep flashing

  • Anonymous Apr 29, 2008

    The "Check paper" and the "Check Ink" amber lights are blinking despite fresh paper and new (not to mention expensive) ink cartridges. Pulled and reinstalled and still won't print.

    The amber light for the "check print cartridge" light will not go off. I have properly installed a new cartridge. Alternately, I have the same problem with "check paper." This printer is brand new, but I'm preparing to throw in off the roof. Any suggestions before I smash this piece of garbage to bits and try another brand?

Says ready to print but won't, blinking orange light will print menu pages, blinking green light

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

We are having trouble with our hp p2015dn...what is the symbol on the top the open the letter c on end. The printer is not printing our

The symbol you mean is for indicate that the printer is ready. If you can print from ex notebook, you are having problem with your paycheck application program. If you can't even print a testpage from PC.
Check your printerdriver, is the printer offline?
Networking? Press gobutton on printer until ready and attentionlight blinking, release gobutton and the printer will print a config page. Then on PC, go to Control panel, rightclick on Printer icon, choose properties, choose Ports, check for HP standard TCP/IP port, click configure. Is the IP adress for port the same as the one given on the configpage. If not replace it with the one given on configpage.
But, if the configpage says the IP is configuring. turn off printer, disconnect network cable. Press and hold gobutton, turn on powerswitch, when ready and attention lights lid, release gobutton. Printer will reboot to ready. Reconnect network cable. wait 5 min print a configpage and check if you got IP.
Having USB, Just uninstall and reinstall printer.
Hope this will help, otherwise let me know. I'm expert on this printer

Printer Problems

Hi, it sounds like you need to change the drum. If you are using the High Yield TN660 toner is your printer, then the drum needs changing every 3-4 toners. If using the low yield TN6300 toner then your drum needs to be replaced every 6-7 toners. Hope this helps
