PH Photosmart 145

Hi there, I'm hoping someone may be able to help me. I was given the HP Photosmart 145 as a gift. After I plug in the printer the On/Off botton just flashes red. The Screen is showing all 8888-across the whole screen. I can't do anything? Any suggestions?

Talked to HP tech support today- the "Tech" said these errors are "internal hardware issues". Since HP has "no service locations for printers"- The only solution is.... TO BUY A NEW PRINTER! (of course $$$) Why did we not think of that!

Rest In Peace
