Got back from work yesterday and my printer lights were all blinking. I tried to turn it off but it wouldn't work that way. Only way to turn it off is unplugging the whole unit. The buttons are all not responding. How can I fix this problem, have never had any problems with this printer.
I would try some simply things first.
1. Pull the power plug and wait for approximately 15 to 20 minutes before plugging back into outlet.
2. If your power plug is plugged in a power strip then try pluggin directly into the wall outlet.
3. I would make sure there are no paper jams.
4. If you recently installed ink cartridges, then check to make sure they are the right make and model for your printer.
Comments: If you had a power surge the printer may just need to be powered off for awhile. Some printers will hold there settings for at least 15 minutes.

My spotbot lights would blink and it, for a time, only worked on deep clean even after unplugging and plugging back in. Finally it wouldn't work at all, only the hose light would blink. I unplugged the hose and plugged it back in and the machine started working as it should.
Reseat the toner cartridge. Turn the printer off, and then back on again. You may want to try a new cartridge, but if that does not eliminate the error, call your HP support line. If the imaging-drum light is still blinking but the Attention light is not on, you must replace the imaging drum before the printer can continue printing. The imaging-drum light might be blinking by itself or at the same time another light is on or blinking. If another light is also on or blinking, turn the imaging-drum light off in the simulator and turn the other light on or blinking to isolate the condition.The printer has determined that it cannot read or write to the e-label on the imaging drum.Reseat the imaging drum, and then power cycle the printer. If this does not work, replace the imaging drum. If the imaging drum light is still blinking but the Attention light is not on, turn the printer off, and then back on. If the problem persists, replace the imaging drum E-label reader. The imaging-drum light might be blinking by itself or at the same time another light is on or blinking. If another light is also on or blinking, turn the imaging-drum light off in the simulator and turn the other light on or blinking to isolate the condition.

I had the same problem just yesterday. Turn off the printer for 10 seconds. Then turn back on. Turn back off again and unplug from the electrical outlet. Open the control panel and tilt it toward you. Close the control panel, plug machine back into the outlet and turn back on. I did this and it solved my problem.
You have to reset the drum counter.
Leave the front cover open
Press and hold the "cancel" button until all the lights flash in sequence
Close the front cover
You should be good fro another 30 - 40 thousand copies.
Hope it helps
