hi all having a problem with my above printer. There are two lines on the printer one is green which is the power and the above shows a sheet of paper with an arrow. The problem being whenever I try to print the orange light keeps flashing.

Could be a paper blockage. Try clearing it out.

If you don't get your printer working again and you buy a new printer, could you please let me know (via the yellow envelope) as I have an H.P. 610C Printer but the mains connection box (30 volt DC?) and lead is missing.
Possibly you would let me buy the connection box from you???

I'm pretty certain that the orange light is warning that there's a paper jam. I'm also pretty certain that the printer has led/diode sensor modules. If there's a build up of paper dust in one of these modules then it will probably signal that there's a jam even if there isn't. I once had a Deskjet 850, and extended it's life by several months by cleaning the led/diode sensor modules with a soft brush and air blast.

This from a cached HP page via Google:-


Problem- Printer senses that there is paper being fed.


1. Press the RESUME button to feed the paper. Continue with the following steps, if the paper does not feed.

2. Turn the printer off.

3. Open the top cover of the printer.

4. Make sure that paper is not jammed in the printer.

5. Lift the right black rectangular paper sensor (located in the middle of the printer just below the silver rod on which the cartridge carriage slides).

6. Make sure that nothing is stuck under the paper sensor (you can blow under the sensor to remove dust).

7. Close the top cover of the printer.

8. Turn the printer on.

9. Try printing again.
