The Power light blinks at a steady interval when the printer is processing a print job. If the Power light blinks fast, the ink cartridge door might be open, or the printer might be in an error state.
Troubleshoot a blinking orange light on HP DeskJet.

It indicates firmware issues, paper jams, or improperly installed cartridges. Resolve it by performing a power reset of your printer.

Light bar glows purple at outside edges and blinks amber in the center. This occurs when the printer experiences an error while connecting with Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS). Press and hold the Wireless button on the back of the printer for five seconds to reset the wireless connection, and then set it up with WPS again.
Ink in a cartridge is low. You can continue printing, or check which cartridge is low and replace it. An ink cartridge is expended or not installed correctly. Replace or reinstall the cartridge.
Install an appropriate canon ink cartridge. If the lamp on the ink tank is flashing, ink may have run out. Replacing the ink tank is recommended.
This could also be an issue with the printer print settings on your PC causing the issue. While feeding the photo paper to the photo, you need to keep “Glossy” or print side facing down. Also, it is important to change the print settings before you print a photo.
Ink may have run out (The lamp on the ink tank flashes). If printing is in progress, you are recommended to stop printing, replace the ink tank, and then print again.
Check the output of the AC adapter. If it is bad then it appears the battery has fully discharged and you need a new AC adapter.
Reasons why your HP printer has ink but won`t print

This may seem obvious, but it sometimes happens: first make sure your paper tray has paper in it. Misalignment, clogged printheads, faulty data communication or insufficient ink levels can also be sources of the problem.

While the printer is ON, Unplug the power cord from back of the printer. Wait for 60 seconds. Now plug in the power cord directly to wall outlet and then to the back of the printer.
Here are the most common causes of a printer printing faded text or images: Low ink or toner levels. Toner sticking to the fuser roller or problems with the transfer roller. Low ink or toner density settings.
The power light is on or flashing. The ink light is flashing. Ink in a cartridge is low. You can continue printing, or check which cartridge is low and replace it.
Just above the circuit board on most printer cartridges, you`ll find a small button. You`ve seen these tiny buttons before on cell phones, phone chargers, etc. This is your reset button, and the only way to get in there is either with a paper clip or the tip of a pen (which will leave a tiny ink smudge on the button).

HP deskjet 460 Waste ink tank full
ANSWER : I worked fixing printers for 5 years for Verizon and some of the older printers were notorious for the waste receptacle filling and overflowing with ink. My solution was good old warm water. Remove the waste container and scoop out as much as you can with a small screwdriver, wiping the discard on a paper towel, then just run warm water from the faucet into the container till all the residue is removed. This is just water soluble ink folks, if you want to test it, scoop out a glob and dissolve it in warm water, its easy as pie. I never once bought a new ink discard reservoir. I just cleaned out my mobile 460 printer reservoir by the same method. There are no electrical connections its just all plastic.
