If the computer has bidirectional (two-way) communication with the HP 2000C Professional Series Color printer, the printer will be able to send information to the computer about its status. If the computer does not have two-way communication with the printer, the printer cannot notify the computer of its status. Under such conditions, when there is a printhead or ink cartridge problem that requires user intervention, the printer will automatically print a status page to notify the user of the problem.
There are two such pages that can be printed--a Printhead Information page and an Ink Cartridge Information page. Under all conditions where the printer requires attention, the amber Attention light on the printer's front panel will blink. It is possible to obtain more information about the error condition by determining the Attention-Needed error code generated by the front panel indicator lights.
note:Refer to document BPD05587 - "HP2000 - Printer Attention Codes" or the HP 2000C Toolbox for more information about the attention error codes.
