Try this:
Turn off the machine
Take the toner/cartridges out of the machine
Unplug the power cord from the wall
Wait 30 sec
Plug the power cord back into the printer and wall (Make sure the printer is plugged into the wall and not a surge protector)
Insert the toner/cartridges back into the printer
Turn it on and test

HP Deskjet 1056 supposed to be dual voltage...?

What does it say on the "brick" on the cord? Look for power specs on the cord transformer.

Hp color laserjet cp1215 wont turn on

try a different outlet, especially if you are using a power strip. Sometimes even one outlet in a strip can fail. Not sure how farther you tried other than check the power cord. If other devices work on the same outlet hole you plugged you machine into then, try another power cord. If that does not help then you will need to seek a tech.

Plugged 220v Mistake

If the printer is designed for 110v and you have plugged it into 220v then most like you have damaged your printer beyond repair. The cost of repairs may be slightly less than the cost of a new printer.

Relocate to new home, plugged in printer and turn on switch- nothing happens. Is there a fuse I can check?

First thing I would Check is that the outlet you have plugged it into has power just to humor me plug a known working device into the same outlet to see that the outlet has power if it does then check that the power cord to printer is plugged into the socket and back of printer tightly also some power cords for printers seperate in the middle near the power converter be sure that is plugged in snuggly, If that all checks out Check inside the printer for damage which may have happened during the move, open all printer access doors and visually inspect all areas inside printer for signs of damage. If that all Looks Good Go Here to get support on this subject.

Thumbs Up if Helpful and Feedback is Appreciated!!!

Printouts outs coming blank in my hp 2300 laserjet printer

Replace the toner cartridge.
If that doesn't FixYa then chances are the high voltage board is defective or it's fuse is blown.
Check and/or replace the HV board.

Will not turn on even tho plugged in

Try a different power cord or test the power cord on a different piece of equipment.
If it still does not work then the printer has a power supply problem and needs to be repaired or scrapped. A new printer may be a better cost effective solution.
Unless you have electrical knowledge I suggest you do not try to fix mains powered equipment. Mains voltage is dangerous.

You either have a bad toner cartridge or a failed scanner assembly. Here's a free copy of the HP 2300 Service Manual to help you isolate it down. Check the troubleshooting section and it will give you a number of checks. The manual may mention a High Voltage Power Supply (HVPS) section on the DC Controller board but that would be highly unlikely. We have been servicing these since they were introduced and have never installed a DC Controller.

Here's the link:

Hope that helps you. :)
