need printer help!!

i have a HP deskjet 890C. i got a .pdf file in an email, downloaded it, opened it and tried to print it. but it didnt work. instead it keeps printing random characters and letters (like one line per page) and the yellow light keeps blinking.

i put more paper in, press the button again and more characters come out.

i cant get it to stop.

how do i fix this? i already opened the printer window thing and cancelled all jobs but it keeps doing it.

Turn it off and then back on.

Make sure you cancel the job on the computer.

If that doesn't do the trick, unplug the printer for 30 seconds or so.
