Check if you are getting an error message as carriage jam..if you get this message connect the printer directly to the wall outlet and then check for the error message..if it still the same..perform a reset on the machine..that is you need to unplug the power chord from the back of the printer, press and hold OK and CANCEL button together while pressing these two button plug in the Power chord to the back of the printer..after you plug in the power chord do not release those two buttons, keep pressing those two buttons untill the screen is blank..once the screen is blank release the buttons and then turn on the printer..check for the message..if you are still getting any error message then it is a hardware issue..machine should be replaced..

I replaced the cartridge for my HP C4250 printer/scanner but the alignment page did not print properly, so I did not get a proper scan page. Now it will not print at all. What next?


Hi,
A cleaning will fix the problem. To clean your HP C4250 > open a document (from the computer) and select print from the menu,
- In the print screen window select 'properties' Or 'Preferences'

- In the next window click 'maintenance'

- In the next window there will be many options to clean, align, nozzle check etc etc...



hope this helps, thanks!

Please follow the steps below to install the Cartridge:

Install or replace the print cartridges
  1. Turn the printer on. The cartridge cradle will not move if the power is not on.
  2. Open the printer cover. Figure 1: Printer cover openc00658567.gif
  3. Wait until the print cartridge cradle moves to the center of the printer and is idle and quiet.
  4. If you are replacing a print cartridge, press down on the print cartridge to be replaced, and then slide it out of the print cartridge cradle. If you are installing print cartridges for the first time, go to the next step.
    NOTE: HP recommends using a print cartridge protector to store an opened print cartridge for later use. Figure 2: Print cartridge being inserted into a print cartridge protectorc00658568.gif
  5. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and carefully remove the plastic tape. Hold the print cartridge so that the copper strips are on the bottom and facing toward the printer. Figure 3: Removing the protective tapec00658569.gif
    CAUTION: Do not touch the print cartridge ink nozzles or copper contacts. Touching these parts will result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections. Do not remove the copper strips. They are required electrical contacts. Figure 4: Print cartridge facing upc00658570.gif 1 - Ink nozzles 2 - Copper contacts
  6. Slide the print cartridge at a slight upward angle into the cradle until the cartridge snaps into place. Figure 5: Installing the print cartridgec00658571.gif

All lights keep blinking!tried unplugging and reinstalling.Dead?


If the Resume c00121686.jpg light continues to blink and the print cartridge cradle does not move to the right side of the printer, try these solutions:
  • Remove and reinstall the print cartridges. Verify that the print cartridges are in the print cartridge cradle before pushing them forward into position.
  • Verify that no obstruction prevents the print cartridge cradle from moving freely on the rod.
  • Verify that the vinyl tape has been removed from each of the print cartridges.
If the problem persists, contact HP Customer Care.

The print cartridge cradle cannot move.


"The print cartridge cradle cannot move."
I fixed this problem by disconnecting the power cord from the power-strip and connecting it directly into the wall. My printer was not getting enough voltage from the power-strip. I hope this helps.
