HP Deskjet 1280 not turning on...

I just recieved a printer i baught online, it looks fantastic. I was just in the process of setting it up when it came to the part where i had to plug it in and turn it on. I did so and the light on the printer flashes once and then does nothing more. it doesnt start up or anything. I know if it doesnt work i should send it back but this was the only one they had and i wanted this printer more than any other. Plus the hassle of sending it back would be a bit much for me. I really need to get this sorted as i baught this printer for the buisiness i have just set up and im afraid the problems with the printer will delay everything else as the buisiness relys on this printer. Please help me as soon as possible :) Thanks, Mark

    I have just printed a few sheets, gone for a coffee and now the printer is off.



    When i turn it on i get the same problem. Power LED flashes once then - nothing.



    This is the same whether or not it's plugged into a PC



    Any ideas?



    Cheers

I have just sussed out my stupidity.

After hunting through a few HP files on there support page (which was accessed by a strange tooolbox utility on my PC.

There is a removable input box on the back of the printer, the support page says 1) Check the power cord, 2) check the rear input box is installed.

we actually it was so a breif slap to check it was home fully appears to have sorted the problem

must have been a dodgy connection or sensor on the input box fully home position.

Hope this helps someone else.

Cheers
Tony

My printer is a hp deskjet 1280. Just installed it on my laptop and it is printing everything with a little shadow as if its not quite lined up. How can I fix it?


Hi

You should be able to do an allignment process which may correct this issue. Normally when a new cartridge is put in the process will be requested.

You can always go into the printer properties to attempt the alligment process but if all else fails maybe purchase a new cartridge incase the print head is damaged.
