HP Officejet H470 - Blinking Lights

I have a mobile HP Officejet H470 printer.  I have had several issues lately with blinking lights, I find a fix, do it and other lights seem to start blinking then.  This time it is the resume light and the right ink cartridge light.  it cycles like this..... the resume light is green, then red, then the right ink cartridge blinks, then starts over.


Any help will be appreciated.

When the resume and right cartridge lights blink, it means that the ink reservoir is full. You need to replace the reservoir and then reset the printer. You can find instructions in this document.

Re: HP Officejet H470 - Blinking Lights

I got the same blinking lights.  I need to replace the Ink Service Module.  It is full.  HP Support says I can no longer get.  My M470 is no longer supported.  Service Module no longer available.  Is that true?  Printer bought in 2008.  Indian support lady says after 5 years HP dumps you.  In the meantime, I took the full module out, completely washed it out (very messy) and put it back.  Can that work?  The printer is still blinking: Replace!.

Re: HP Officejet H470 - Blinking Lights

I have a mobile printer HP H470.  I have been getting these messages that the Ink Service Module is full.  I have been unable to get a replacement.  I finally took the full service module out, cleaned it thoroughly and put it back.  The printer still works fine, always has.  However, the nag screen to replace the module keeps coming up.  

Question # 1:  Am I safe now?

Question # 2:  How can I reset the printer to stop reminding me about the ink module being full.  It no longer is.
