When I turn it on after a few seconds the "on", "check paper", check print cartage", "black start copy" and "color start copy" lights all blink. The print head never moves in this printer even when I open the print head access door but the scanner moves. I think that its in a safe/demo mode. I had a electronics repair shop back in the 90's. I know how to replace parts and work on electronics safely without getting zapped. I am just terrible at troubleshooting.

To be able to understand the problem, you should give extra info about the lights. Please find the information below about the status lights that provide information about error conditions of your printer.But first you need to install the driver for your operating system. The drivers are necessary to print documents and scan images. These drivers must be installed to use the print and scan features.
If the On light, Check Print Cartridge light, Check Paper light, and Start Copy, Black and Start Copy, Color lights are all flashing, do the following: 1 Verify that the front-panel overlay is attached to the HP PSC. 2 Turn your HP PSC off and on by disconnecting the power cord and reconnecting. Problem 1:“ON” light is on, “check paper” light is blinking and “check print cartridge light” is off .
Explanation 1:The paper tray is empty, the HP psc has a paper jam, or the paper size setting and paper in paper tray are not the same.

if your cartages are ok then ckeck the colour print from pc if it is ok then clean ccd and if the problem will also come then replace scanner cable and after that if problem will also come replace scanner ccd
I have a HP PSC 1410 printer. All of a sudden in the morning when i
turned on the printer all the lights on the printer started blinking
and keeps blinking. E appears on the copies LED. What could be the
problem. I have even switched off the printer and turned back on but
the problem remains.
Could be a number of things. I would try looking in printer settings first. Click on your printer, go to properties and check all settings, it may be set to do this or similar. If no go, try uninstalling and reinstalling it, or just turning it off and unplugging, replugging and turn on again can often reset irregulariites. Also try resetting default printer settings too.
