Hi, my HP D4360 DeskJet printer isn't printing. Both the power and resume lights are on and blinking, as well as both the ink lights. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks


The power and resume lights blinks due to two reasons. 1) If there is any kind of paper jam in the printer.Then its internal assembly cannot move so the lights blinks.So clear the paper jam if any.Open the cover and check if any paper jam.also there is a access door at the back to check any paper jam.The back plastic door can be opened to remove paper jam. But if you are confirmed that there is no paper jam then the other possibility. 2) The printer cartridges are faulty and needs replacement.There are two print cartridges in the printer.One color and one black.Any of the one can be faulty or in some cases both are faulty.But before replacing cartridge remove the cartridge and clean the brown dotted circuit on cartridge then reinsert the cartridges and check.But if this does not solve the problem then replace the cartridge one by one and solve the problem. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Hp deskjet 6980 blinking lights


ok so for this situation you have to do a cold reset, and by this you have to go ahead while the printer is still power on, disconnect the power cord in back of the printer, and wait for about two minutes. power on the printer if printer still has the blinking lights then go to step 2.

step 2-after this check the printer if light are still blinking, then your going to remove all printheads, remove paper, and then unplug printer power cord from printer and also from the wall outlet, wait for 20 seconds, then power on the printer, wait for light to flash then install the printheads, put paper, and press the resume button.
*** always connect your printer to a wall outlet never to a power strip, the power strip robs some of the power from the printer***
and this should fix the problem if it doesnt then the carriage might me malfunctioning . hp recently did a recall on some printer with the 6940 and some of the 6980, that the carriage broken.

Hope this help!

Flashing lights


That flashing pattern is consistent with a stuck carriage. Here is a copy/paste from HP concerning the 5000 series and your flashing lights.

1. Open the top access door on the printer.

2. Remove the ink cartridges.

3. Close the cartridge flaps after removing the ink cartridges.

4. Turn the printer off, then on again.

5. Replace the ink cartridges.

6. Close the top access door. Issue

The Resume light continues to blink after the cartridges are released.

OR

The carriage is stuck or makes a grinding noise.

Solution

1. Lift the top cover to the printer.

2. Turn the printer off and then on again.

3. Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer when the grinding noise starts. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.

4. Move the carriage towards the middle of the printer (this procedure may take a couple of tries to get the timing correct).

5. Take out the cartridges and close the top cover.

6. Reconnect the power cord to the back of the printer. Plug the power cord to the wall outlet.

7. Open the top cover, reinstall the cartridges, and then close the top cover.
