Question about HP DeskJet D1460 InkJet Printer
The light on the power button is blinking, the printer doesnt print at all. it appears online and ready, the printing jobs are queued and it says "printing" but nothing happens. i tried to remove each cartridge but still it didnt work. the thing is we already did a print test the day it was installed which was a few days ago and it worked. could it be the port? it was connected to the usb port the first time i tried to print, and the second time i changed it to "lpt 1" according to the troubleshooting instructions. but nothing still.
If the port had been changed to LPT1 the printer will not work.
LPT1 is the large parallel port, while you are using USB on this printer.
the red light came on probably because of a jam , or because of one of the documents in the printer cue.
The easiest thing to do is
Unplug printer usb.
Go to control panel>installed printer.
Delete all the instances of this printer from there and chose to delete drivers if asked.
Reistall the printer using the printer disk, plug in printer data cable only when asked by setup wizard.
If you have a different USB cable, also use it, just in case.
If that does not fix the problem , then there is an internal fault in the printer.
