Hi,

 

First of all move it away from the router abit. Setting it to close doesnt always help improve the signal, it can actually cause a poor signal. 

 

Next reset the network seeting on the unit by doing this: Press and hold the cancel button and then press the wireless button. LEt both buttons go and the unit should reset to network defaults.

A few seconds should be enough, and first press the cancel button, then press the wireless button, just make sure you release them at the same time.

Re: Hp deskjet 3050 j610, wireless light blinking,

Thats the only way i know, but as its not connected have you tried connecting it to the network again? Try for example to connect a notebook to the pritner by using the wifi network search on the notebook. You should find the printer and be able to directly connect the notebook to the printer.

Here is someone else with the same dreary question, years later.  Answers did NOT work.  Had tried connecting to wireless, but didn't work.  Want to back out into USB mode only, but blinking light never stops.  HELP!

I SOLVED my problem.  I had uninstalled and re-installed printer software, no results.  Ignored for awhile, but again fiddled with powering on and off, and clicking Wireless button.  FINALLY, in the printer display screen a line popped in: "disable wireless",  which turned blinking light off. Thanks anyway.
