Blinking Lights on the HP Deskjet F300 All-in-One Printer Series

Introduction
The lights on the front of the product indicate the status. These lights can be on, off, or blinking (flashing), depending on the status of the product. The Power light, Paper light, Print Cartridge light, Plain Paper Type, and Photo Paper Type lights can all blink in distinct patterns to indicate the status or error conditions.
Other lights, such as those for the Paper Type and Resize to Fit buttons, indicate a selected user preference only and do not blink.
