HP Deskjet 460 flashing and won't print - help!

Hi there

 

I have a problem with my printer. The power light and the resume light are flashing and even though I've followed the HP instructions below, I can't make them stop. There doesn't seem to be any paper jam. What can I do?

 

Many thanks

Ali

 

 

Issue

Power light and the Resume light blinks.

Solution

  1. Remove the print cartridges.
  2. Remove the jammed paper, if any.
  3. Reinsert the print cartridges.
  4. Turn on the product.



Cause

There is either a paper jam or a carriage jam.

This problem is happening again. I have tried everything (switching it on and off, holding down the power button etc.) but I can't seem to cure it. There are no paper jams and the ink cartridges seem fine. The resume and power buttons are flashing.  Any ideas?? Thanks!

I have the same problem.  Remover the cartrides and their is no paper jam.  Inserted the cartridges and the lights still flash.  Tried everything but throw it against a wall

The link listed in this solution seems to be out of date.  Does anyone know the new URL for the Deskjet Reset instructions?

Ditto - it knocked and stopped printing. Flashing lights nothing else. No obstructions and cartridges are inserted correctly. Link diverts to a site where you have to pay for internet troubleshooting. Very interesting.
