Try unplugging all the cables from the printer(power and data cables).
Press and hold the power button for 10sec(it will do nothing since its not plugged in. We are trying to remove the static electricity from the machince, if there is any).
Repeat the same process once more.

1. Remove all the inks 2. Press and hold both the OK and CANCEL buttons 3. Whilst holding them remove the power cable from the back of the printer 4. Whilst still holding them - push the power cable back in. 5. Continue to hold the buttons for 10 seconds then let go. 6. Wait - it may reboot several times. 7. Go through the setup again and put the inks back
You can try to 'reset' the supply by unplugging it from the printer, and then unplug the AC line cord. Plug line cord back in, then plug back into the printer.
If you are still having issues, then use a multimeter to measure the DC voltage at the connector's outside contacts (middle contact is not used). You should have approx. 32 volts. If not, then replace your power supply. There are many sources on the internet. Otherwise, your printer may be at fault, consult your user manual for instructions on a master reset.
i had this happen once a long time ago, try these options below...
turn printer on/off, unplug,wait a minute plug in, should reset configs. go to applications folder for your computer, dbl click printer icon for make of printer. check settings. print 'test document and clean cartridge heads', this should ensure proper printing formats.
lastly, go to web site of printer model and check site for trouble shooting if this does not work above. hp has an AWESOME web site for trouble shooting hope this helps and good luck
First unplug the computer from the printer Connect the printer directly to the wall outlet (there should be no surge protactor in between) Unplug the power cable from the back of the printer and keep on tapping the power button for next 30 sec and then plug in back the power cable and check if the same thing happens Unplug the power cable from the back of the computer (with one hand) press and hold down the (#) and the (6) button at the same time and plug in back the power cable Release the (#) and (6) button (the printer may shut down) on the screen it will display SEMI NVM reset If none of them happens try it once more if still the issue remains Do the same by press (#) and (9) button If still it doesn't work you may change the wall outlet and check if still the issue remains in that case the printer has gone bad and cannot be repaired Can call HP to return the printer and get an upgrade at low price for replacing the damage printer.
