Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

My HP officejet J5783 says on the display "turn power off and on" with the quality lights, the power button and the exclamation mark next to the setup flashing. No matter how many times I've switched it off and on, this remains. It happens whether printer is connected to the computer or not. Unable to print/scan/fax currently. Could you please assist?

If you're using windows try using window's built in scanning camera wizard (this worked perfectly for my psc 1315). Go to Start -> settings -> control panel -> Scanners and Cameras

SOURCE: HP Officejet 5610 Fax Failure

You can try resetting the printer.
Step 1. Unplug the power cord at the back of the printer while the printer is still on
Step 2. Press and hold the # and 6 button on the printer while the power cord is disconnected. And keep holdig the two buttons until you plug in the power back again.
Note : do not release the # and 6 when you plug the power cord back in. keep holding the two buttons until the printer would turn on then turn off or the printer would say anything about "reset"
Step 3. Try sending a fax after the successful reset of the printer

SOURCE: HP Officejet J5750 can't scan,fax from PC and no HP devices detected error

This issue is common with every HP scanning software used with Windows OS which have a firewall running.

If you would try the following:

- check the task bar if HP digital imaging monitor is up and running
- if not, go to C:\program files\hp\digital imaging\bin and double click the file HPQTRA08.EXE
- now the monitor should run
- if not, pls reinstall the software (*)
- if yes, pls try to open HP solution center

- if solution center starts, pls try to scan or to fax
- if successful, no other steps are required

- if faxing is not successful, check in the printer folder, if you find a HP <device name> series fax entry
- if you cannot find it, unplug the printer and delete the entries in both the printer folder and scanner folder
- also run the software CD and start the uninstall_l1.bat and uninstall_l2.bat in the util\CCC on the CD (if 64 bit OS, the run the 64 bit versions)
- restart the PC with the loaded CD
- replug the printer and let it be reinstalled

(*) For a clean reinstall it is recommended to contact HP support. They know the best way to leave a clean system on the PC.

Hope it helps.

The exclamation mark is on and the screen is flickering hp j4580 officejet all in one


A flashing exclamation mark is typically associated with a sever cartridge error (i.e. "refer to documentation" / "incompatible cartridges", "print cartridge(s) problem" etc.) typically indicates the internal micro-electronics of the HP #901 / 901XL cartridge are damaged. Have you tried replacing the ink cartridge with a new HP genuine cartridge to confirm?

NOTE: The cartridge's electrical wire runs at rear and lower side of the ink cartridge are very delicate and are somewhat susceptible to ink attack over time, which can lead to premature failures. In addition, the older the cartridge the higher the chance of an internal electrical failure. I suggest you first run a 'Tap 41' diagnostic test to check cartridges electrical health (this is a forced test); you may also bypass the error (temporarily) on all models which use HP 901 cartridges. Refer to Inkjet411 youtube videos below:

I have an officejet 5610 all-in-one inkjet printer. There is an ornage exclamation mark next to the setup between the pound sign and the setup button that keeps blinking. How do I get it to quit. I...


The Exclamation mark is an Attention: error indicator. There is a problem that you need to fix. You need to fix the problem. Was there is any message on the LCD screen when you started having the error?

Press Cancel and try printing again since you apparently cleared the LCD message. The problem could be a paper jam, no paper in the paper tray (or the printer can't pick up the paper), an ink issue or something else.

Please add a comment with the error message for additional support. I need more information to tell you what steps are most likely to solve your problem.

HP 7410 - No display and orange exclamation point is lit


Unplug your power supply and leave it off for like ten minutes, then replug it and see if it will initiate itself, if not it sounds like serious malfunction.

The amber light in the shape of an exclamation mark (!) blinks when the unit requires attention. The display will give further information. The light is off when no attention is required.
