How do I find Broken Switch on hp 1200

My Hp 1200 won't print. It was working and then I broke off a small clear cone shaped piece of plastic that looks like it presses against a switch. I have no idea where it goes to. When I plug it in, the power goes on put the green light doesn't come on and the printer shows up as a question mark on the computer screen.

    The promplem is I don't know what or where the switch is. Maybe if I had a diagram of the printer of sorts.

    That little switch seems to be intact. I have tryed pushing it in and did not make a differenc. It seems there is one other place for a similar switch.

If the spring did not damage the carriage flex I would suggest just using some epoxy to hold the spring properly in place. If the spring did damage the flex (as shown in this picture) then you might contact HP and enquire about an extended warranty for this issue. In the US call HP at 1-800-HPINVENt.

HP deskjet 3054 broken power button


Hp's usually have a micro switch underneath the power button. You probably just broke a support arm or type device. You might be able to super glue the piece back together and make it work. In my experience, this usually works about 40 percent of the time. Usually by pushing to ******* the switch to break the plastic you could have possibly damaged the small micro switch. My best suggestion is take it apart and try the super glue fix first. Good Luck!!

My hp deskjet 5150 doesn't print. I get a message on screen that the lid of the device is open although it's not


On the right side of the printer's cover is a small plastic "v" shape piece, That piece activates a swith that tells when the cover is open.
With time that piece wears-out, so the solution is to replaced the cover or wrap that piece with scotch tape (one single turn will be enough).
