Shut down the PC. Pull the AC power cord from the printer out of the wall. Wait 30 secs. then plug the printer back in, then power up the PC, It should go back to normal.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

HP DeskJet 812C Hardware Problem! with Printer cartridge carriage. Printer Cartridge retracted into right side of case will not come out. There is No paper jam in machine to prevent it from doing so. ...


Disconnect the "data" cable (parallel or USB).
Disconnect the "power" cable.
Reconnect the "power" cable.
Turn the printer on.
Lift the printer's lid -- the print-carriage should slide the printer-heads to the "middle" position.

If all else fails, take the printer to a qualified technician, for more trouble-shooting.

Lights flashing, printer won't print as a result of a paper jam


Hi Girlemom. Just had the same problem here. Lift up the lid and slide the ink cartridges to the left. If they are stuck in the middle, this will prevent the printer from starting properly. Then, unplug it, plug back in, and turn on. It should restart normally.

Failure to print


Here's what we did: Lifted the lid and turned off printer. Then turned on again. Unplugged power cable from back of printer, moved the carriage toward the middle of the printer. Took out cartridges and closed the lid. Plugged the power cord back in. Reinstalled the cartridges. After the alignment page it worked fine. These instructions are paraphrased from HP website troubleshooting. I don't have any idea why any of it worked, but it did and I'm grateful.
