    Thanks for your help. It is still showing the same error message and will not turn off manually still. It is only a year old. How do you check print cartlidge cradle has broken?

Verify that the unit is switched on. Disconnect the USB/Ethernet cable from the All-in-One and also disconnect power cable from All-in-One and also from wall outlet.
Wait 30 seconds.
Plug in the power cable to All-in-One and also to wall outlet.
[Now turn On the printer and check the functionality

if the above does not rectify it

Reset the All-in-One to the factory default settings by using these instructions:

1. Unplug the power cable from printer when the printer is powered on.
2. Press and hold OK and HELP buttons while plugging in the power cord.
3. Now turn On the printer.



is this is still not working then it is due to the print cartridge cradle packing up.
and you might have to face buying a new one, but I hope the above will help

    Hi, I am not sure especially as you are saying it isn't doing anything as you would need to turn it off and on and lift up to see where the ink cartridges are and be able to watch them move and see how they move to remove the ink cartridges and see how everything is......

    I recently had a problem with my printer a HP but not your model and I just uninstalled the whole thing from my computer and did a complete fresh install so if you still have your disc this might be something to consider if not you might be able to find it on the web.



    Good luck

When I try to scan from printer to computer I get 'scan error'. See documentation. I am trying to scan to a mac - does that matter?


You need to use the grey cd to install the software onto your Mac if you have not already done so. If you don't have the Mac CD you can download the installation software and all drivers from HP here (select your operating system first).

If you have installed it aready, try uninstalling and then reinstalling using the HP website to obtain the updated drivers etc. rather than your CD.

Once you have uninstalled the software, disconnect your printer and then restart your computer. Do not re-connect your printer until you have reinstalled the software.

To verify that the software has installed properly, look for the HP Solution Centre on your desktop, double click on the icon and check that both "scan picture" and |"scan document" are showing.

Hope that helps!

New black print cartridge is getting a "low ink" error message


too generic and too lack of info to help precisely but try reinstalling the drivers, FIRST uninstall all HP stuff completely and reboot your system. After reinstalling take both cartridges out, buy a bottle or spray of isopropilic alcohol and clean the cartridges contacts carefully. If cartridges are new and genuine there is no need to do that of course.
