Out of Paper/blinking light issue

HP Deskjet F2400 series all-in-one printer
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Recently went to print a document, it printed 2 pages then a paper jam occured. The printer is on but the Attention light keeps blinking every time I try to print anything. The light doesnt come on until I have something in queue to print, otherwise just the power light is on. I put paper in the tray and still nothing happens. I've tried cleaning the rollers in the back of the printer, same thing. I tried resetting it, nothing. I've basically tried everything I could to fix this problem. This is so frustrating and I really need to use my printer. Help please!!

Welcome to HP support community.

 

Remove any loose objects from the printer

  1. Turn off the printer.

  2. Disconnect the power cord and any cables from the rear of the printer.

       WARNING: 

    You must disconnect the power cord before you reach inside the HP printer to avoid risk of injuries or electric shock.

  3. Remove the paper from the input tray.

  4. Use a flashlight to check for any loose paper or objects in the input tray area, and then remove any paper or objects you find.

  5. Look down through the open input tray and find the paper pick rollers. You might need a flashlight to illuminate the area.
