I was trying to print a paper for class and hit to button too many times. I was in a hurry and didn't know how many times it had printed so after the first complete print I hit cancel several times and turned it off because I had to leave. I went to turn it on again two days later and it wont. It is plugged in, getting power, nothing wrong with the power line, but it wont turn on. Can you help please?

If you didn't used your inkjet printer for a long time the most common problem is that the nozzles of the cartridges are clogged with ink, so no ink can go down to the paper and that's why you see a blank sheet of paper.
The other option is that you think you have ink in the cartridges but in fact it was finished.
I suggest you to replace the cartridges.
Hope this helps
Almost all modern printers have the ability to print out a configuration page -- a pre-formatted page with all sorts of information about the printer and its status. The items found on a config page will vary from printer to printer, but typically they include the network address and other network settings, a list of optional features that have been installed, the printer's page count (number of pages printed), and possibly the current ink levels. For color printers, the page count is typically broken up into black and white (or monochrome) and color.
To print a config page on an HP LaserJet 4250n, follow these steps:
A. If the printer is not already powered on and warmed up, turn it on now. Then hit the Menu button (the gray button to the left of the display screen.)
B. Using the down arrow button, scroll down once to Information and hit the Select button (the green button with the check mark on it).
C. Hit the down arrow button again to scroll down to Print Configuration and hit the Select button again.
The config page -- which might actually be two pages if you have a JetDirect print server -- will print out immediately if the machine was at the Ready screen when you started, or it will print out as soon as the printer warms up if you just turned it on. The display screen will automatically return to Ready.
If the printer is currently in an alert state -- because of a paper jam, empty ink cartridge, lack of paper, or other problem -- it won't be able to print the configuration page. Remedy the problem shown on the display screen and try again.
My work-around for this problem is to feed paper in manually through the front.
I turn the printer off and make sure all paper is out of the printer.
When you turn the printer on - and the blue light stays lit (if it doesn't turn it off and wait - I've had to wait quite some time sometimes).. then manually feed 1 sheet of paper in the manual feed tray at the front.
When the paper is inserted... you should be fine to print - and keep feeding paper in until you get your job. If you miss - you might need to hit the "continue" (triangle button)..
I've been trying to find out why mine locks up - and why it keeps jamming - but this is a tried and proven menthod - althought it is annoying it might help you for now..
Check if there is a reset, or clear message function. or you may try this one:
1. With the printer turned on, if there is a door for the cartridge, open it. 2. Then, if there is a "Go" button, "Print", "Copy" button, press and hold it for 10 sec. 3. Close the cartridge door or cover. Turn it off then turn it on again.
Disconnect the printer power plug from the wall for 2 mins and plug it back in and turn the printer on and turn on your PC and see if that helps.
The printer has a memory which stores information you may have sent to the printer. If you kept hitting the print button then it may have saved all those print commands in memory and it is printing that out. That is what happens most of the time at my office. So you need to erase the memory by turning off the printer from the wall. Hope this helps
What is the exact error message that comes up, and how do you fix it before pressing the "Resume" button? My normal errors with this printer is either no ink, no paper, or paper jam--once the error is corrected, I press the "Resume" button (on the right of the 2 buttons) once only.
I am not too familiar with the flashing error code, I will need to get back to when I find an answer to that. If it is a new print head,
As for a new printer, it depends on many factors: (1) What you use the printer for? (2) Do you need color printouts? If not a monochrome laser usually has the lowest cost per page, albeit a greater initial cost of the printer. (3) Do you use genuine Canon ink cartridges, a generic brand, or refill? I have used generic ink on my i560 for a number of years with no problem
I thought my printer died on me, but it turned out it was a simple paper jam. The whole printer just locked up because of a paper jam! All I had to do was open the top compartment, remove the toner and get rid of the paper jam
