On Vista, gets knocked offline after a time of no use
Green light stop flashing and this requires you to replug the USB or restart. Anyone experience this? Have a solution? It is not all that uncommon to need to re-initiate a connection, but with this device there is not interface to refresh the connection--requires replug or restart, which is a pain.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

(laptop) unplug the power cord, then take out the battery, unplug all usb devices, leave it alone for a minute or two and then replug the power cord and then the battery. Turn the computer on and restart as normal. replug in your usb devices and they will reinstall as usual
I have had this problem before also. What I ended up doing was shutting down my computer, turning on the scanner opening it all up so you can load it and ensure it is hooked up to the computer, restart the computer, open the program itself but then scan by pushing the flashing button on the machine, not using the program. I am not sure if yours will work this way or not but good luck.
Most USB printers need to have the printer driver installed before you connect the printer to the computer, did you install the printer this way?
Also, check and see if it is the default printer.
If those do not work:
1) Turn off the Terminate and Stay Resident programs MSCONFIG in VISTA. 2) Disable HP device discovery service. 3) Uninstall the All-In-One software. 4) Turn off firewall and antivirus. 5) Reinstall the latest software for the All-In-One. Hope this helps.

I have tried it, the vista download drivers works on vista, no problems in printing at all, advise from http://www.bebo.com/andythoo
A couple suggestions. Unplug the usb cable from the pc to the printer, make sure there is no paper jammed in the machine, unplug the machine from the wall and see if you can move the print head left to right freely. If nothing is obstructing it plig the power cord in with out the usb cord plugged in. See if the machine goes to ready. If all of these fail, that means the main board has been damaged by a power surge, and it would be cheaper to replace the machine than repair it. Good luck!
