Hello - I have an HP All-In-One 6110 printer. When I send items to it to print, it actually prints only about 40% of the time. When it doesn't work, the printer cartriges run lightly across the paper as though it is printing but is not - it sounds similar but you can tell it is not working. Sometimes if I shut it off and turn it back on, it will print, other times not. Any ideas? I am using an HP Pavillion a1040n and it is connected via USB, but have tried using it with other computers and it does the same thing.

You will need to open the top and look inside where the paper travels through and attempt to free any paper pieces that have gotten stuck in the pathway. You probably have a bad board in your control panel, since you are able to print from the computer.
Try printing it from the ADF (Automatic document feeder) if it prints from there...
If same thing happens just check if the scanner bulb lids up or not... If not then its the issue with the scanner bulb
I identified this issue with my Officejet 6110xi All-in-One as firmware corruption. Attempting to install the supplied firmware update gave the error that "no hp device connected to the computer would benefit from it at this time." Attempted to power down the printer using #9 keystroke and got "FULL RESET" message, but problem of extremely slow printing and erratic behavior of the print heads persisted. I solved the problem by putting the printer outside in cold weather for two (2) days. This frequently resets firmwares with software corruption back to their embedded EEPROM state. Hooked the printer back up and worked fine. If cold weather is not available you could try other creative methods of cooling the device, just use a plastic bag and with ideally some drying packets thrown in to prevent excessive moisture buildup in the cold environment. The colder it is the faster the firmware resets.
Connect it back to the computer and verify it's still working properly that way. It does indeed sound like a compatibility issue, but it may be correctable with a quick chat with the friendly folks at NetGear.
