lights blinking rapidly, cartridges stuck, printer won't print--hp officejet 6000 wireless

[ Edited ]

HP Officejet 6000 wireless:


the power, paper and all ink lights are flashing rapidly. I've looked at this post ( many times and none of the scenarios match what is happening to my printer. The check condition section at the very top of the page told me that what is happening to my printer is not a valid condition...but it's still happening to my printer anyways.


I've also tried to reset the printer by holding the power, pressing the wireless button three times and the cancel buttom two times. Nothing happens.


I've unplugged the printer and plugged it back in multiple times, and it just goes back to those six lights flashing rapidly

The cartridges also will not move.


Printer is about two months old. Any help would be great.

Re: lights blinking rapidly, cartridges stuck, printer won't print--hp officejet 6000 wireless

The problem you're having is caused by a fatal error in the firmware.  There really isn't a whole lot you can do to fix the problem once it comes up.  I would honestly suggest that you call HP tech support.  Since it's only a couple of months old, it should still be under warranty depending on where you bought it.  You can find the contact information linked below.

Hi all. This is my first time using you all for solutions. Just see the message above and you will know exatly what is happening.  The cartrudge was stuck but I don't believe that this was my error. i.e. I put it in correctly.
