This error means that some mechanical parts of your printer is in trouble. This could be some of the causes:

1. The print head is stuck somewhere or is unable to move because of some blockage in the printer's bay.
2. If you are using a Continuous Ink System, then the tubes might have blocked the print heads from moving.

To resolve, turn OFF your printer. Remove such blockage then turn the printer back ON.

Regards,
JR

I can't seem to install my ink cartridge correctly. Do you have a picture demonstration on how to do this? I continue getting an error message.

Hp deskjet 5652 not printing, orange light flashing continuously


1. Check to insure the cover is shut down completely.

2. If the "Ink Drop" Icon is blinking you are either out of ink, or there is a problem with the cartridge carrier. So open the cover - the carriage should move to the middle, if not it is bound up somewhere. Check the guides and around the carriage area for gummy labels etc..

3. If the carriage moves to the middle, release the ink cartridges and replace.

4. If the "Arrow" Icon is blinking, this could be a result of a paper feed error. Remove the paper from the tray, open the cover and insure no jams are in the rollers. Shuffle the paper lightly and place back in tray. Check to make sure the tray is pushed completely forward and then press the "Arrow" Icon button until a sheet is fed into the printer.

* * Note: When you are replacing the Ink cartridges and before you remove the tape from the bottom heads, give them a shake to lossen up the ink before installing.

The print cartridge cradle cannot move.


"The print cartridge cradle cannot move."
I fixed this problem by disconnecting the power cord from the power-strip and connecting it directly into the wall. My printer was not getting enough voltage from the power-strip. I hope this helps.

No power ON


Here is what HP suggests: Issue The top access door on the printer may be open, or there may be something wrong with the print cartridge. Solution 1. Check to ensure that the top access door is firmly closed. 2. If the light continues to blink, open the top access door. When the top access door is opened, the print cradle moves so the yellow arrow on top of the cradle points to a drawing of a cartridge. Each drawing describes a symptom. Here is a link to describe the pictures at the top of your printer: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=e&product=304442&rule=36405&docname=bpd09173 It might be that the cover's tab is broken (the tab is what tells the printer that the cover is closed)
