I had not used the printer in a few months. Now I moved it and powered it up and ALL lights are flashing. Anyone know how to reset this, of is the printer toast. The nearest service center is 50+ miles away.
Some permutation of the above worked for me... I think what I did: with printer on, I opened front cover and pressed GO 6 times firmly and rapidly. All the lights on the panel went out and stayed out. I closed the front door expecting the lights to come back on. The lights did not come back on, so after waiting 15 or 20 seconds I power-cycled the printer and it came back up fine - no more E50 error.

The 'fluttering' is a pre flash used to help the camera focus in low light. The internal flash isn't a powerful flash and is usually only good enough for subjects up to about 2m away in reasonable light also to light a subject that is back lit. Try putting the camera in manual mode (M) 1/60sec on f5.6 flash popped up review it and make adjustments accordingly i.e. open up or shut down the aperture as the flash usually syncs at 1/60
I've just got this problem after a powercut, whilst it was not being used but on. If you have only had it a few months send it in warranty. Think I will have to take this apart and see if the scanner cable/ribbon/drive belt is caught on something or been stretched too much and can be replaced at all. Its like at one end its caught and wont move the scanning head being stuck somehow, caught on something (doubtful tho').
yOU CAN ONLY TRY.
not know if it will work so you go to come back to let us know pleas.
Also if you are using the Refillable ink cartilages stop they always cause major issues 1) With the printer powered off but connected to a power source, press the Power button while pressing and holding the Stop/ Reset button. 2) When the Power is lit, press the Stop/Reset button two times while pressing and holding the Power button. 3) When releasing the Power button and the Stop / Reset button (regardless of order), the printer will move into a service mode. (Waiting for menu selection) 4) When the on/off lights in green, press the Stop/Reset button the specified number of time(s) according to the function listed in the table below.(Each time the Stop/Reset button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in orange and green, starting with orange.)Note: press 4 times for waste ink counter reset.

5) Turn off the printer.(it must be turn off) then turn it on again. Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one and to go on helping.

You could try a partial reset of the printer
Unplug the power cord
Reconnect power cord
When lights are flashing, press & hold On/Resume and PaperSize buttons
When only the On/Resume light is flashing, release both buttons
When On/Resume light is steady, reset is completed
ok so for this situation you have to do a cold reset, and by this you have to go ahead while the printer is still power on, disconnect the power cord in back of the printer, and wait for about two minutes. power on the printer if printer still has the blinking lights then go to step 2.
step 2-after this check the printer if light are still blinking, then your going to remove all printheads, remove paper, and then unplug printer power cord from printer and also from the wall outlet, wait for 20 seconds, then power on the printer, wait for light to flash then install the printheads, put paper, and press the resume button.
*** always connect your printer to a wall outlet never to a power strip, the power strip robs some of the power from the printer***
and this should fix the problem if it doesnt then the carriage might me malfunctioning . hp recently did a recall on some printer with the 6940 and some of the 6980, that the carriage broken.
If you haven't already done so turn the printer off, then back on then let sit with power on for 10 min. If nothing changes you'll have to take it in for repair.
Good luck and please don't forget to rate this post.
