If you are using original cartridges, check you have removed the plastic film over the cartridge chip as this error refers to the cartridge.

Hp color laserjet cm1312 won't boot up. It tries to, there is a menu bar that tries to progress on the screen, but then stops. Help!!

Have you tried reinstalling the firmware for the printer. If it is already loaded on your computer then you should be able to reinstall the firmware in order to get it booted.

hope this helps (ie if you haven't gotten it fixed already)

How do I load an ink cartridge into a f 2480


Power on the printer, gently raise or pull the head up when it has finished loading and ready to print. you will notice that the ink cartridge house moves to the middle.

Now power off the printer with the printer head still raised, gently load the ink cartridge you want to insert into the printer and pull the printer head down back after you have load it.

You can now power on your printer to boot up.

I get an hp invent icon that just keeps loading and the printer never boots up! :-(

try to delete the printer from the device manager, remove the drivers from the control panel. then insert the cd for the printer before you plug the usb cable into the computer. the drivers for some printers must be installed before you connect the device to your pc.

The computer stops loading and waits for approximately 2 minutes before continuing to boot. When we removed the hp Printer usb Plug and the computer boots fine. Please help. Thank you, Althea Mason

The symptom you described happens because your printer is capable of reading memory cards.

When you turn on your pc with the USB cable connected, your pc is checking the memory card slots in your printer to see if any of them contain a valid operating system that can be used to boot the pc.

Once your pc determines the memory slots do not contain a bootable operating system, it then continues the boot process and loads the operating system from your hard drive.

When you disconnect the USB cable, the memory card slot are not present and the pc boots normally. I've run into this exact same situation at work with certain models of HP printers.

My best recommendation is to check the BIOS in your pc to see if it is possible to disable the option that allows your pc to boot from USB devices.

When you first turn on your pc, the screen will display a message informing you of which key to press to enter the setup program. This is where you want to check to see if the USB boot option can be turned off.
Note: Not all pc manufacturers provide an option to disable booting from USB devices.

If you can't disable the USB boot option, check to boot order to make sure the internal hard drive is listed before any USB devices.

I have to say though, setting the boot order so the internal hard drive appears before any USB devices does not always solve the problem even though it should.

Hp pavilion a1220n shuts dwn after loading hp8500 pr drv xpsp3 os

If you can boot into safe mode, then once in safe mode open system restore and then restore to a couple days prior to the install of the hp drivers. This should fix the problem. If you need to know how to get into system restore let me know your operating system (Vista or XP)

HP 3055 prevents boot up in Win2000, causes lockup when connected

Actually I deleted the PCL 6 drivers which had been installed by the original HP driver CD, went to the HP website and downloaded the PCL 5e drivers instead.

I also added a USB switchbox between the PC and Printer, leaving the default setting as disconnected. Now, it boots up fine, without having the HP printer connected.

In use, I wait until just before I need to print a document, switch the USB selector to connected and obtain hardcopies of my documents.

Then, to ensure against screen lockups / freezing, I switch the USB selector back to disconnected.

It's a kludge and not what you should have to do for a $400 laser printer AIO device.

Naturally, I am completely unimpressed with HP software engineers, who have a functionality somewhat below Dilbert and his crew.
