    I open the hp 1170 to find the power source but I don't have schematics. Surprising to me when I open the printer and push the on and off button the printer worked for a short time and I turn it off but want turn back on could it be the switch or power supply over heating.

    My HP 1170 is doing the same thing - I went to use it Sunday and it wouldn't come on. Unplugged it and moved it to a different room; comes on, says it's initializing, reads '1 copy / 100%', sits there for a few seconds then shuts off.
    When it's working properly, the fan starts and you turn it on with the power button. With this situation, when it comes on for those few seconds, the on/off button doesn't work. This happened several months ago and I tried an outlet in another room (per HP's suggestion - they said it's probably low power in the outlet) then brought it back to the office and it miraculously started working again. I just tried several outlets outside of the office and it won't stay on in any outlet now. Sighhhhhhh...any other suggestions?

HP 1315 printer won't turn on

I have an HP printer too, but it's HP 2050. When i plug it in it usually makes a noise and then the power button blinks. To turn it on requires me to hold the power button down for a few seconds until the power button light stays on. If you haven't tried yet, try pushing down and hold and see if it turns on. Hope this helps :)

HP PSC 1210 Not Printing

Hi My first quesiton to you would be: What version of windows are you using. If you are using Windows Vista you will need to go to the HP Site and download the new updated drivers for the new OS. Second Question : Are you using genuine HP printer catriges? If so make sure the contact point where the catrigr and the printer meet are clean and free of dust. Try re seating the cartriges and re calibrating th printer. I checked with HP online tech support and they backed me on this. If you have any more trouble feel free to email me : Have a great day.

Turns on by itself

HP has a pretty good on-line troubleshooting guide for their printers. Below is a link that will out-line how to trouble shoot your particular printer and what all the lights and indicators mean. If you are not able to resolve your issue through this, then you may be able to have a live chat session with an HP tech who can help resolve your issue.
