Flashing (approx. once every second): Out of paper Flashing (approx. twice every second): Mechanical error (Buzzer sounds once.) Most likely your paper feed is giving you the error. Remove the current feed, ensure there are no paper jam & insert fresh paper. If Mechanical Error :: Quick blinking Buzzer Sounds continuously for a pprox. 1 second :: Reset the Power switch Paper End Blinks.:: Buzzer Repeats a short 3-time sound twice at intervals of 0.5 second.:: Set a new paper roll. Paper Near End Blinks.(Once a second) :: buzzer Repeats a short 3-time sound twice at intervals of 0.5 second.:: Set a new paper roll.
Mechanical Error : If the printer mechanism has a greater load due to a paper jam, etc., the buzzer will sound and the SEL/ERROR lamp will blink to stop the printer mechanism. Paper End : If the printer has run out of paper, the paper sensor in the paper path near the print head will detect the end of the paper roll, turn on the buzzer, and blink the SEL/ERROR lamp to stop the printer mechanism. If the paper is inserted into the paper path, the paper will be loaded. Paper Near End : If the paper is running out, the paper near end sensor will be activated to turn on the buzzer and make the SEL/ERROR lamp blink. Even after the paper near end is detected, a command can be used to print by the specified number of lines. (See a description on the command for setting the number of print lines after paper near end detection) Finally Backup Data Clear : When the power is turned on, depending on the SEL switch operation, the backup data in the input buffer will be cleared according to the flowchart on the next page. To clear the input buffer, turn on the power while pressing the SEL switch. The following messages will be printed. "Clear Data in Buffer" "Cleared Data in Buffer" To print the data in the input buffer, simply turn the power on. The following message is printed and the data in the input buffer is printed.

If the paper has jammed in the machine, clear the jam, reolad the paper in the machine correctly and then press [Black] or [Color].
If these steps do not reslove the issue, turn the power off, unplug the printer from the power supply,(wall socket), let rest 5 - 10 minutes, then plug back in, turn on printer and see if this has cleared the error messages.
Cancel printing, turn off the machine. Then clear the jammed paper or protective material that is preventing the FINE cartridge holder from moving, and turn the machine on again. If not remedied, turn off machine, unplug the power cord of the machine from power supply. Plug machine back in and turn power back on. If problem is not resolved, please contact service center.

This worked for me. If "Paper Jam" error message continues to appear after jam has been cleared, turn off power to printer. Navigate to Control Panel - Printers, right click on HP Photosmart 2570 series icon, click on Delete on drop down menu. This deletes printer from your system. Turn on power to printer. Printer will re-install (may need original installation disc, may not). "Paper Jam" error message should no longer appear.
