HP cp1160 printer power light flashes indicating "the printer is busy"
I recently did a number of envelope addressing. During which a few got caught up in the rollers and jamed. Not all pieces came out, yet the remainder of printing went well. A day later I tried duplexing some pages and it failed three times, however the missing pieces from the envelopes came out.
I removed the printer, took out the duplexer, dusted with compressed air the entire unit, cleaned the rollers with roller rejuvenator, re-installed, turned on, and now the printer power light flashes indicating the printer is busy. I note that the printer carriage is not docking on the right side any longer, and any job sent to the printer produces a "failed to print" window.

In this Case take out the Paper from the Paper Feed Tray........ Unplug the Power Supply from the Printer.......... Remove both the Cartridges from the Printer.......... Now take a size 10 Envelope fold it so that it should become like a thin long strip........ Now Insert that Envelope on the left side corner of the Printer and move it from right to left and left to right as fast as u can for about 10 times.......... Now Insert the Ordinary Papers onto the Printer and insert both the catridges and Turn on the Printer...... Blinking Stopped...........Issue Resolved....... Still Blinking: Remove both the Cartridges take a Paper Towel turn the catridges direction so that u can see a Copper plate with small boxes on it....... Just wipe it twice or thrice with the Paper Towel.......... Now insert it and Power on the Printer and see whether the Lights are still blinking if it is still blinking......
