    what do you mean always buy a new one? We bought this printer less than a year ago, and I can't believe they last that little. I'm there has to be a better solution.

    I have had the same problem with 2 K5400 printers that are heavy use and so I've seen no solution other than buy almost as many printheads as ink cartridges. Previously i bought some used Business inkjet 2250s, and new 2300 and 2800 printers and they would go through quite a few ink cartridges before the printhead had to be replaced and the K5400 looked like the 8.5X11 replacement but I have went through 4 $65 printheads in just over 2 months with one printer... Anyone have a solution for the KY printhead error?

Always buy a new one. If not you will have to buy a new printer sooner.

Is the green light on my Office jet k5400 suppose to be blinking?


Hello,

the green light on your printer can be blinking, here are the causes:
  • The printer is either turning on or off.
  • The printer is processing a print job.
  • The printer is paused while the ink dries.
Just try to wait for a while, and it should be all right again.

OfficeJet Pro K5400...ink cartridge


Er, NO.
The answer to the above question is clearly misleading.
If you consult the documentation for your HP K5400, which can also be found online, you will find that the printer cartridge lights also blink when the print heads require replacing.
If you have replaced the cartridge and the light still flashes, this is the most common solution. Replace the print heads.
Unfortunately because the printer is badly designed, there is no way of indicating this, and you will have troubles if you attempt to get the HP Toolbox or any other diagnostic tools working.
Good luck!

Printer HP Office jet Pro K5400 Paper jam happened now we cant print anything. Orange button with ky just keeps flashing. Can you help please?


This typically means there is still paper stuck somewhere in that. My guess is that whatever paper as removed tore as it was pulled out. Look carefully everwhere you can.

My KY yellow light is blinking. What should I do?


The k5400 is not recognizing that the ink cartridge is installed. Clean the contacts on the back of the ink cartridge and also the contacts in the K5400 printer. I always use 91% isopropyl alcohol, Hp says to use distilled water. Do let the contacts completely dry before reinstalling.
