Maybe it needs new print heads? Has it got a diagnostics page in the tools
anywhere? Have a look in there, it should tell you.

Here's a question that's pretty far off the beaten path even for this list.

I have two HP3820 printers.  One works, one doesn't.  The one that doesn't
has a blinking light which indicates that a new ink cartridge is required.
So I took the cartridges out of the one that works and put them into the one
that doesn't, but the light still blinks.  I believe that it is not 'seeing'
one (or more) of the cartridges.  

The printer is too cheap to repair.  But I hate to just toss it.  It IS an
elegant piece of hardware.  (The rant against our disposable society I will
withhold, here.)   Maybe someone knows (or can speculate) on which component
might be at fault.  Maybe some ink got on a sensor?  Who knows? (That's why
I'm writing, of course.  To find out who knows.)

Best to all,
