Question about HP OfficeJet Pro K5400dn Photo Printer
When I turned on the printer, all the lights were blinking. I disconnected the power, disconnected it from the computer, plugged it all back in, still blinking. I changed the KY printer head, and changed two low printer cartidges, still blinking. There are no jams inside the machine, but I don't know what the next step is. When the lights are blinking, all the lights blink on the machine. The computer recognizes the computer but says that it can't communicate with it. It was working fine before the day the lights started blinking. Any suggestions?

1. Printheads have an expiry date so I'd recommend checking that the printhead has not past its expiry or something similar. It's a shot in the dark but may be relevant.
2. It's also possible that the connecting strip at the back of the printheads slot is soiled with ink or condensation... Try using a cotton bud to gently clean this strip of any moisture, wipe the contact on the printhead too (NOT the printhead nozzles!) and then reinsert the printhead.
As Rowdytown points out though, pulling the power on this printer and then reinserting after a couple of minutes usually resolves any internal issues as well by hard resetting the printers state.

It's possible you have one of the following problems:
In both of these cases contact HP support to request a warranty replacement (but try the ideas below first obviously :))
For these last two, try removing the printhead, cleaning the chip carefully with a cotton bud and then replacing carefully.
Hope that helps.

Check the printer again to see if a very small jam is present. If totally clear, press the Resume button. If same result, power the printer Off / On.

If you press and hold resume, will the carriage move over to the left? Hold it until it stops moving.
If that doesn't work, try resetting the printer, by following these instructions. This article may also apply.
Unfortunately, HP does not have any instructions on the support site for resolving a carriage jam for your model, and I am hesitant to instruct you according to another printer, without experience working on that particular machine. If you are still unable to correct the situation after following steps listed above, please contact HP tech support directly, here.
If you want to research the options available online, you home support page is here.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
