A lot of times these are used to indicate That the TONER is low... May want to look at the product guide to see, but this would be my assumption...

It could also mean that the paper is jammed or out of alignment.

The blinking light indicates an error condition. This could be any array of conditions - jammed paper, poor communication from the LPT port to the printer, no paper in the printer, low toner, etc.

I'm assuming you already turned off the printer then opened it to give it a visual inspection for anything that may be "out of place" or broken, as well as checking for paper jams.

Keep the following in mind:

1. Is the toner in the printer the correct type for that paritcular printer; are thetoner cartridges seated correctly in the toner tray?

2. The parallel cable you are using to attach from printer to the LPT port, is it attached firmly at both ends and are you sure it's a good cable? Open the HP tools that should of installed with the printer and run the communication test.

3. Search the HP website for troubleshooting further issues concering this if nothing above offers any help.

Good luck, have a great weekend.
