    Voodoomox was giving me instructions on how to correct the problem when I inadvertently pulled the wrong plug and turned off the computer instead of the printer. Help!!

    The control light continues to blink whether the computer is on or off. The printer will not print. I have reset the ink cartridges and it did not help. I went through the Trouble shooter steps described on my computer and they did not help.

    2. Press the power button once. Wait a moment for the paper jam to clear.

    On/off button blinking


    Did you check your particular models warning lights page? Maybe your head cleaner is full or the printer needs maintenance. Take a look at your printer manual to see what the warning lights signify. Sometimes printers reset if you remove the plug from the back then push the power button and plug it in again while your still pushing the power button. Then you can try turning it back on normally again...
