That is the ATTENTION state. Four things can cause it to flash. 1) empty paper tray 2) door open 3) paper jam 4) misfeed from tray. Press the GO button(the diamond). If it still doesn't work, check for a paperjam.. Also try printing from the manual feed tray.
What is the color of the blinking light? Is it red or green? If its red, then there must be a cartridge issue or paper jam. Did you load the paper correctly? Also, please try to do a reset of the printer.
If the machine is making "working noises" while it flashes, it is most likely calibrating. A good way to find out if the problem is due to connectivity issues with your computer is to turn the machine off, unplug for 1 minute, plug back in and turn on. Wait until the light is solid, indicating its ready to go, and then press and hold the green button until the lights flash. It should produce a demo print for you. If it doesnt, the problem may be with the printer, not the computer. Also, check in the "Printers and Faxes" settings in the control panel (if you are running windows) to see that the 2550 is set as the default printer.
When installing new cartridges, it's always a great idea to perform a cleaning and recalibration of the machine. Below are the steps needed to do just such a task. You may want to print these out or save them somewhere for future reference as well. They are directly from the HP website.
