HP LaserJet 1150 and 1300 Series Printers - Understanding and Troubleshooting Control Panel Light Patterns This document explains how to interpret the light patterns on the HP LaserJet 1150 or 1300 series printer control panel. It lists the error conditions, describes the possible causes, and provides steps to resolve the conditions. Description of the control panel The control panel contains two lights and one lighted button. Patterns of light indicate printer status.Figure 1: Location of control panel c00007297.jpg 1 - Ready light 2 - Go button and light 3 - Attention light Figure 2: Light conditions c00007298.jpg 1 - Light off 2 - Light on 3 - Light blinking The following table explains the lights on the control panel. See "Status light patterns " below for an explanation of the light patterns.Light or button Description Ready light Indicates that the printer is ready to print. Go button and light To print a demo page or to continue printing while in manual feed mode, press and release the GO button. Attention light Indicates that a printer media input tray is empty, a print cartridge door is open, a print cartridge is missing, or other errors. Status light patterns This section describes the meaning of the light patterns. If a problem persists, see the flyer that came in the printer box for contact information, or click here to go to "Contacting HP support" below . Ready Light pattern c00007299.jpg Description The printer is ready to print. Action No action is necessary. To print a demo page, press and release the GO button on the control panel. Processing Light pattern c00007300.jpg Description The printer is receiving or processing data. Action Wait for the job to print. Continuable error Light pattern c00007301.jpg Description The printer is in manual feed mode. OR The printer is out of memory. Action The software controls manual feed. If manual feed mode is not wanted, change the setting from the printer properties. See the User Guide for information about changing printer properties. OR Take one of the following actions:
  • The page being printed might be too complex for the printer memory capacity. To continue printing, press and release the GO button. The printer might print a partial page, or the quality might be lower than normal.
  • Lower the resolution. See the User Guide for information about understanding print quality settings and changing print quality settings.
  • Add more memory. See the User Guide for information about installing DIMMs (HP LaserJet 1300 series only).
If the problem persists: Attention state Light pattern c00007302.jpg Description The printer is in an error state that requires operator intervention or help. The door is open, the media is out, the printer cartridge is installed incorrectly, or the media is jammed. Action
  1. Check that the printer cartridge door is completely closed.
  2. Load media into the correct input tray.
  3. Check that the print cartridge is correctly installed in the printer. (See the user guide for information about changing the print cartridge.)
  4. Check for any media jams and clear them. (See the user guide for information about clearing jams.
  5. Check that the left side panel is completely closed. If the left side panel is completely closed, open the left side panel and push the door sensor. Occassionally, if the left side panel appears closed, the sensor will still remain in the open position, generating this error. Pushing the sensor will shut the door tight, returning the printer to the normal mode.

All lights blinking Deskjet F2180


Welcome to FixYa!

I assume that the "Start Copy Black" light and "Start Copy Color" light is also blinking.
The product has a fatal error or the scanner bar is unable to move.

Reset the printer:
  1. With the power on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the product.
  2. Wait 30 seconds.
  3. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the product.
  4. Press the Power button to turn on the product.
  5. Wait until the Power light stops blinking. The reset is then complete.

Solution two: Make sure that the control panel overlay is installed correctly If the control panel overlay, or bezel, is incorrectly installed, the product might indicate a false error condition. If the product has not been set up before, ensure correct installation of the control panel overlay. NOTE:
If you already installed the control panel overlay, and your printer has been working for some time, do not attempt to reinstall the overlay. Press firmly on the overlay to ensure proper installation of the overlay adhesive or pins.
I hope this helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.
Keep me posted.

We cannot get the scan to operate on the hp officejet 4315 all in one printer


When you lift lid to scanner pad, does bulb light up? It should also move slightly as if to prepare for a scan. If these things do not occur, something is definitely wrong with the scanner itself and will require a technician to service.

If bulb does light and carriage moves, then you should try using the buttons on printer control panel and try to use software on computer to try a scan.

If the control panel button works, then it's a software issue. You can try different software like HP Directory or any photo software with input from scanner feature.
If software works, but control panel doesn't, you'll need a technician to fix the panel.
If neither work, we are back to a problem with the physical scanner. That requires a technician to look at it.
