SOURCE: Paper light continually flashes won't print

when you lift the cover on the back of the printer there is a thin plastic sensor very delicate normally black in colour which detects whether there is paper in the tray or not.that sensor is slightly moved from its orignal position or broken , so this problem is coming.

thanks.

SOURCE: printer light blinks and won't print

Hi john, try updating your printer drivers:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop(watch for the light yellow bar at the top of window viewing pane, click on this and choose – download file - . Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done.

SOURCE: Cartridges Jammed, Paper Light Keeps Blinking

There are a number of possible causes but none are realistically fixable as your printer is more than ten years old now and has far exceeded it's design life. If you're lucky then it's just a broken microswitch.

If you want to try and see if the fault is a simple one then you'll need to remove the casing and watch the machine as it tries to operate. What follows is based on the very closely related Deskjet 880c, but yours comes apart almost identically.

You'll need a torx driver with small sized torx bits (sorry, I don't recall the exact size) and a small flat-bladed screwdriver. You'll also need paper towels and an anti-static wristband. You may also need a continuity tester to check any suspect microswitches but it's often obvious if they're broken simply be the feel of the operating button when pressed.

Disconnect the machine from the power supply and open the lid. You'll see two torx screws which you need to remove. Turn the machine over and you'll see that at each endthere are plastic tongues which have clipped into the metal chassis. Use your flat-bladed screwdriver to carefully push these inwards and at the same time ease the end cases of the machine away from the main body of the machine. keep a careful eye out for any obstructions and be aware that the right hand end case (as viewed from the front) will have wired connections which you must be careful not to strain. If there are any loose/broken parts then put them to one side.

As the right cover comes off, be prepared for many years of inky goo. If it gets on your hands they'll be stained for a few days, so use the paper towelling. This goo is the residue left from every time the printer has been through a cleaning cycle and when it discharges ink whilst priming new cartridges before first use. If the goo is everywhere, then give up and bin the machine. It won't be worth the mess and effort to clean up all of the delicate working parts which probably won't work afterwards anyway.

If you had any loose parts then now is the time to see where they came from: detective skills are useful! If the broken part held a moving component then assess whether it can be glued or replaced by a bit of lateral thinking.

Now reconnect the power supply (it's a low voltage from a transformer, so is safe) and check the printer operation. Parts which may be causing the problem are normally things like microswitches, dislodged springs, broken spring locating tabs, dislodged/broken drivebands or failed motors.

Personally though, unless you like finding out how stuff works then just bin the printer. I've had dozens of free printers and multifunction devices from Yahoo FreeCycle over the last year and many work perfectly or have a really easy to fix fault (such as Epsons which need the service indicator resetting and maybe ink pads replaced). I take them, repair them and re-offer them on FreeCycle or sell them if i've any money tied up in repairing them. Older HP's are generally extremely reliable (my Deskjet 880c has had thirteen years of fairly heavy use and going strong) but when they fail it's normally for a really good and non fixable problem.

SOURCE: Lights are blinking and the printer is not loading paper.

I also have this problem. Sometimes powering it off/on fixed it temporarily, but it always did it again before long. I gave up after about 2 months and bought a new printer.

    The green light should only blink if set has been unplugged---upon plugging it back it will blink for about 70 seconds and go out----this is the set booting up and is normal.

    At that point you should be able to turn the set on-----what happens when you try?

    I have a Mitsubishi WD-62525 HDTV that suddenly wont turn on. Just has a green blinking light when you hit the power button. Any ideas?


    I found this on another website, most likely it is your power supply capacitors.
    1. Press the "reset" button and hold for 10 seconds .... Does TV turn on and blinking green light turn to solid green.

    2. Unplug the TV from it's power source for various times, ranging between 5 minutes and 24 hours..... Does blinking green light continue upon plugging in the TV.

    3. Disconnect ALL devices from the TV; DVD, Tuner, Cable Box, unplug the TV for various duration times .... Does blinking green light continues upon plugging in the TV.

    4. Press Power and Menu buttons simultaneously and hold depressed for 20 seconds .... Does blinking green light continue to flash.

    5. Press Power and Display buttons simultaneously and hold depressed for 20 seconds .... Does blinking green light continue to flash.

    6. Insure that no front panel buttons are inadvertently stuck in an "engaged" position.

    Diagnosis: If none of the above test resolve the issue, then the failure lies in one of the following:

    1. DM Module Capacitors have FAILED.
    2. DM Module is defective.
    3. EEPROM Board failure
    4. Power Supply failure.

    THE ORANGE LIGHT IS ON AND NOT PRINTING


    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.

    Sony LCD television will not power on.


    I get 5 blinking red lights for about a minute or so before it powers back down. The Sony TV has a specific light that i presume is supposed to light up when the bulb is out. I'm unsure if this is what it is.
    no picture, no sound. tries to boot with green light blinking a few times. then goes to red blinking light, six in all, then waits a few moments, then another 6 blinking red light.
    Bulb was already replaced several months ago but we do have the TV on for long periods of time.
