    Thanks Nelkas - I had already tried that without luck. I finally got onto HP who have come back with a repair solution that costs a lot more than the printer originally did. Ohms at Fixya believes that it is the circuit board - getting that out is nigh on impossible without breaking the machine.

Check the back of your printer, there is a knob turn it so that it is in the lock position and try turning on the printer again.

Printer will not turn on Power cord is conected and turned on at wall but the machine just sits there dead. Does not respond to any of the buttons being pushed

check that the duplexer unit (or the panel where the duplexer would go) is inserted and locked correctly. if it's not the printer flashes the power light on very briefly and will not power.

Toolbox utility

The HP Deskjet 1280 doesn't appear to have a toolbox utility at all, especially for Vista, there's even less.

How are you supposed to check the ink levels without such a utility?
