First make sure that all cables are plugged in securely (wall to cube, cube to printer). Also make sure that the outlet you are using is good (plug a light into it). If all of these things have been checked and the power light still doesn't function, you may have either a bad transformer (cube) or there may be a problem with the printer. If you have a multimeter, you may be able to check to see if the transformer is providing the correct power (I know it has a funny end).

Note: The power should come on even if the USB plug is not in the computer. You may wish to unplug the USB cable first to see if it will turn on.

Hope this helps - Flub

Check power source. Also, if you have a voltmeter, check the power going into the printer. If all is good there, unplug the printer from the computer and try to power it on. If it powers up while not connected to the computer, this could indicate a problem with the USB cable or the port on the computer. Try another cable or available port (if you have one). If the printer is connected via an external USB hub, try connecting it directly to the computer instead. If none of these work, post back here & I'll assist you further.

This means that the PSC 1510 has a fatal error. Try resetting the all-in-one - turn off the unit. Unplug the power cord from the printer and then from the wall. (Also disconnect the data cable - it's not required but can help.) Wait a few seconds then reconnect the power cord (wall and then printer). Turn on the printer.

Check that the control panel overlay is properly installed and connected. (If the printer has worked until recently, do not pry up the overlay. Just press down firmly to make sure the adhesive and pins are situated properly.) If this is a new printer, turn off the unit, unplug the power cord and lift up the scanner lid. Then install or reseat the overlay. Make sure the tabs are in the slots and then press down firmly on the edges to secure the adhesive. Then put on the faceplate. Close the scanner lid, plug in the power cord and turn on the printer.

If the above solutions do not solve the problem, then the all-in-one needs service. If it is under warranty, contact HP. Otherwise, decide if it is worth repairing (and the cost of shipping to a service center, if you don't live close to one).

I hope this helps.

I placed new ink cartrages in printer and hit ink botton and it just keeps blinking,

First, Make sure you have purchased the correct type of ink for your printer model. Second make sure the cartridges are pressed firmly into place. They should make a "click" sound when pressed into place correctly. Third make sure the cover is closed on the print head and the printer access panel is closed. If you have checked the above try powering the printer off and on again and pressing the ink refill button two times.

The paper won't feed through the printer- anything I can do for that?

Clean & inspect: Unload the paper stock. Turn printer off & unplug its power cord. Open the rear access door by pressing the tab on its left edge towards the right as you swing the door out. Remove & discard any jammed &/or crumpled objects. Clean, turn, & inspect the rollers with a soft towel that has been lightly moistened with water. Rollers that do not turn freely could require replacement.
Prepare printer for use: Restack & reload the paper stock into the paper supply tray, but do not continue to push the paper in after some resistance is felt. Reattach the rear access door by lining up the two pins on right side with their respective holes (near the ports for power & USB connections) & swing the door back into place—pressing gently but firmly until it locks into place. Reconnect the power cord & turn the printer on.

Only printing top lefthand quarter of the image on screen

Try switching the computer and printer off, then detach all the leads between computer and printer. Plug the leads back in very carefully and firmly. Also check that your internet connection (ethernet) leads are firmly seated in the back of the PC, and your router. Then switch back on. Any improvement? Does replacing the leads help?

I had a very similar problem on my 5550 model (it wouldn't print from internet) - and found this solution by accident. Perhaps it will help you. If not, hope someone else can help.
