Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

HP Officejet 6310 All-in-one Just stopped working and all the lights keep blinking and the screen says "reset power" but everytime I unplug it for a few minutes and turn it back on it starts blinking again. Now it has stopped blinking and the lights are off and the screen says check cartridges but the little camera light (bottom front of machine) is flashing. No buttons work. The machine is less than 18 months old - is this the end of it? Have I got a lemon?

    same as other s on this site - my 6310 started blinking and reads "reset power". I will try to re-install software. Other sites suggested plugging in directly to AC outlet. Don't bother

    Sounds to be very similar; goes through ink cartridge startup check then starts blinking and asks for power to be reset. Once in a while the USB light will sit there and blink. Also, the ink cartridges will end up in the middle of the carriage when you open the unit. ?? I doubt it is a software issue, as it should copy without any computer interface. Thanks for any comments.

On-Off light on my HP J4680 Officejet All-In-One printer will not stop blinking and says "Turn power off and then on." I do that and keeps repeating the same message.


Some suggestions from HP:

Turn off the printer, then unplug the power cord from both the printer and the wall. Wait about 5 minutes and plug it back in and turn on the printer.

Reset the printer by turning it off, hold the # and 6 keys while turning back on.

If this does not work, do a hard reset - same thing except # and 9 keys.

If this does not work, the printer needs to be serviced or replaced.

Hope this helps.

Everytime we try to print something it keeps flashing reset the power. Also, there is purring sound that's coming frome somwhere near where the power cord connects to the copier.

Your printer is trying to talk to you, in its own limited way. If you are able to find the manual for the printer, it will list out all of the possible blinking light combinations, and a somewhat detailed summary of the problem. If you cannot find the manual, HP does have these available on their web sites. If you can either refer to the manual to see which blinking light combination is happening, or you can describe exactly the combination of lights, and the frequency (fast or slow, steady of intermittent, I can assist you better with determining the cause.
