Leh1987, that piece of plastic you see hanging, is what the ink slides on, right now its broken so your ink cartridges are slamming back and fourth had the same problem, have to take it in and get the plastic piece either replaced (if damaged) or put back on.

    I have filled the paper tray with paper and will not print


    Try to flip down the back cover and lower the flap that covers the rollers. On the inside of that flap, right in the middle of it, you will see a small, one inch long lever that helps keep the paper up against the roller. This lever was moved to the left a bit to far, so I nudged it to the right. As soon as you do this, the light should stop blinking and the printer should work.

    I have a HP LaserJet 1320n printer and it will not print. An orange light keeps flashing by the triangle with an exclamation point in it. I printed a test page and it was okay. It will not print...


    Possible Solution to your issue!

    Blinking Attention Light HP LaserJet 1320 Series Printer - The printer displays an orange blinking attention light which will not clear. This usually indicates one of the following issues have occurred. Perform the following in the order provided to troubleshoot and resolve the issue.
    1. Insufficient power. Disconnect the power cord from any surge protectors or power strips and plug the unit directly into an electrical wall outlet.
    2. There is a paper jam in the printer.
    3. The top cover is open. Open the top cover, reseat the print cartridge, and close the top cover, making certain it is shut properly.
    4. No paper was loaded in tray 2 or the tray was not loaded properly causing a mispick. Perform the following steps to load tray 2.
    A. Pull the tray out of the printer and remove any paper.
    B. Move the blue side width guide outward to match the paper size that is being loaded. Locate the blue guide pointer on the left side of the tray. If using a letter-size (8.5 by 11 inch) paper, match the guide point with the LTR/LGL engraving located on the bottom, left-side of the lift plate.
    C. Locate the blue tab on the rear paper-length guide. Locate the triangle-shaped pointer in the middle-right on the bottom of the tray. Press on the blue tab and adjust it so that the triangle-shaped pointer matches the paper size that is being loaded. If using letter-size (8.5 by 11 inch) paper, match the triangle-shaped pointer with the LTR engraving on the bottom of the tray.
    D. Place the paper in the tray and make sure that it is flat at all four corners. Keep the paper below the height down arrows on the paper-length guide in the rear of the tray.
    E. Slide the tray back in the printer.
    5. The tray 2 paper level indicator is stuck.
    6. If the printer comes back to a Ready state, print a Self-Test/Configuration page. If the printer is not in a Ready state, proceed to step 7.
    A. Verify the printer is in a Ready state. (The green LED next to the U-shaped icon is on steady and no other lights are on.)
    B. Press down on the green GO button until the orange Attention light comes on (approximately 5 seconds), and then immediately release the GO button. The green GO button will begin to blink and a Self-Test/Configuration page will print.
    7. If the attention light is still on, perform a cold reset. A cold reset, sets most, but not all, default variables stored in NVRAM back to the factory default values. It typically does not reset the page count, paper tray sizes, localization language, or formatter number. Complete the following to perform a cold reset.
    A. Turn the printer off.
    B. Press and hold down the green GO button.
    C. Turn the printer on and continue to hold the green GO button for at least 5 seconds, but not longer than 15 seconds. During the process, the Attention LED will turn on.
    D. Release the GO button.
    NOTE: If both the Attention light and the Ready LEDs turn on before the GO button is released, the cold reset procedure must be started over at step 1.
    E. The printer LEDs begin cycling. The cold reset process runs until completion and the printer returns to the Ready state

    Paper Light Blinking


    make sure the rear part of your paper tray is not pressed too tightly against rear of paper. it will prevent the paper from raising up fully to the feed roller. you can also try cleaning the feed roller if that doesn't do it.

    Printing problem with HP 2015 Laserjet Printer


    If you have an adjustable paper tray, make sure that the tray is set for the right size paper. Also, you may have some type of sensor in or around the printer tray that tells the computer when the paper tray is empty. Sometimes these sensors get stuck and you have to free them up (very gentley).

    Hope that helps - Ghost

    Light blinking


    Step1
    If you're setting up the printer or changing the toner or ink cartridge for the first time, double-check the instructions to make sure that you installed the cartridge correctly and, for new printers, that you have removed all the pieces of cardboard or plastic packing material. 
    Step
    2
    Check to see whether paper is feeding from the paper tray. If it's not leaving the tray at all, try feeding a page manually (if that's an option) or using a different paper tray. Sometimes a problem with the tray can be traced to a broken spring or a piece of plastic. 
    Step
    3
    If paper is feeding from the tray but jamming in the printer, examine where the jam is occurring and then inspect the printer carefully to see if you can find what is causing the problem. A piece of paper, for instance, might be blocking the paper path. 
    Step
    4
    If paper is feeding through the printer but coming out blank, check to see whether the printer is out of toner or ink. A defective toner or ink cartridge could be the problem.
