    The bigger orange light above is for paper jams; this is for another problem but what????

  • gramin Apr 21, 2009

    The bottomlight (small orange one, below the buttons) of the three lights is flashing and I cannot print anylonger. There is no paperjam and the cartridges are fixed properly. What is the problem??

    Little bit hesitating to buy new cartridges, very expensive and it probably won't fix this problem, will it?

    I've refilled my cartridges and used them frequently without much problem. But this time the lowest small light start blinking, and I cannot print anything.

    I can't find my hp deskjet 845c printer Book. What does this blinking light mean, and how can I fix it?

    Small lower orange light keeps blinking, printer will not print anything. I have just refilled and reinstalled two new cartridges and light keeps blinking. I have cleared all print jobs. I have unplugged machine. Still the orange light keeps blinking and no printing can be done.

Check for any paper jams, I think the orange light mean that there is a error and therefore cant print, check incartriges and other areas inside

    Okay the third (bottom) light relates to the ink cartriges, HP says to check the status of your ink and change if nessercary

    The Print Cartridge Status light flashes when:
    • A print cartridge is improperly installed or malfunctioning
    • The wrong print cartridge type is used
    • The top cover is open

Orange light blinking, cleared paper jam, changed printer cartridge, won't print subsequent documents.

Double check all doors/ rollers for small pieces of paper stuck in the rollers. Sometimes just opening the door in question and closing will reset the paper jam sensors. Paper jams can be smaller than your pinky finger nail. So double check,

Hi there,
It seems that " Print on both sides (Manually)" is selected in printing options., when you want to print any document Go to file Print > select printer and click properties and disable the Manual printing option in device settings.
You should be able to get printing without errors,
if the option is not checked then check for the default paper tray,
save the settings and reboot your laptop/desktop and restart printer as well so that settings should work properly and any given command gets clear from memory, If these all settings are ok, Uninstall the printer driver and download the latest version drivers from HP website and install see links below
