LCD panel overview
The LCD shows four main categories of messages:
  • Status Messages communicate the current state of the printer. Examples include READY, PRINTING, and ATTENTION. Status messages appear on the first line of the LCD panel.
  • Warning Messages display potential problems. Examples include BLACK INK IS LOW or CYAN PRINTHEAD HEALTH IS LOW. Printing can continue with this class of error.
  • Error Messages require action to resume printing. Some examples include PRINTER IS OUT OF PAPER, CYAN INK CARTRIDGE IS EMPTY, and INK CARTRIDGE ACCESS DOOR OPENED. The bi-color LED on the front panel will blink amber to indicate an error condition. If the bi-color LED is flashing amber and the printer does not print, lift up the printhead access cover and make sure the carriage latch properly secures the hook on the printhead cover. See the “Possible causes and solutions for LCD messages” section below for information on how to resolve such errors.
  • Unrecoverable Error Messages occur when there is a hardware problem. The bi-color LED will blink alternately amber and green and a three-digit error code will be shown (E: XXXX, E: XXXX-X-Y-Z, E: XX). The printer may have a hardware problem. Turn OFF the printer, wait for a few seconds, and then turn it ON again. If the message persists, the printer may need servicing. Write down the first four digits of the error code and contact HP.
In addition, the processor indicator lightis a small dot in the lower-left corner of the LCD panel that blinks to indicate the print processor is functioning properly. If the processor indicator light is absent, turn the printer OFF, wait for a few seconds, and then turn the printer ON again. If the processor indicator light is still absent, contact HP.
