Blinking Lights on the HP Deskjet F4200 All-in-One Printer Series

Blinking lights
The following sections describe the most common combinations of blinking (flashing) lights displayed on the product control panel, followed by solutions for each combination. Find the blinking lights pattern you are experiencing, and then follow the steps to resolve the issue.
 note:
An E might also appear in the Number of Copies display. This is an additional indication that there is an issue with the product that needs to be resolved. The presence of an E, however, does not affect the meaning of the blinking lights, and can be disregarded for troubleshooting purposes.
