The electrical cord that plugs into the computer doesn't seem to make contact with the prongs in the computer. The green light flashes on as I place the cable in the plug. Then as I complete the connection, it will not stay on.

If the computer does not power up with either this would seem to be telling you that possibly the power cord is not working. Just because there is a light on the power supply unit does not mean the unit itself is working. Obviously the only other problem will be check the plug input as well to see if it is loose or feels wobbly is that is the case replace I would start with a new power supply unit go from there.
You can source the power plug from any Computer accessories center. The short and the long type can be bought from any of these shops.
You don't have to wait for the part to be sourced from HP service unless it is closer to your place.
I was just getting ready to pull the plug on this printer of mine, and order a new one, when I happened on a solution that worked...
Unplug the unit.
Open the top.
Move the carriage to the left.
CLEAN the black plastic tray that the ink cartridge "parks" over - it seems to collect gunky ink that impedes the movement of the cartridge... also clean the "rail" hehind it. I used a Windex knock-off -- and Q-Tips, somebody else said they used alcohol.
Seems to have done the trick for me. I wasted so much time downloading drivers thinking that it was a hardware problem :-(
Unless this set is really oddball, it probably has the same type power cord connector used on computers and so many other electronic appliances. If this is the case, you can use a standard computer power cord as a replacement. The computer cord is a three-wire plug with a ground pin and the TV probably only had a two-prong plug, but the cord will still fit. Your electric outlet should be the three-prong type (if it's not, get it replaced!) so the plug will fit.
If the connector in the set is really different, you can check online by doing a Google search for replacement parts for you TV.
SolutionStep one: Perform a power reset and connect the printer directly into the electrical outlet Remove all the paper loaded in the main input tray. Make sure that the product is turned off. Disconnect the USB cable from the back of the product. Disconnect the power cord from the product. Disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet and wait 10 seconds. Reconnect the power cord directly into the electrical outlet and check for the following. Make sure that the power cord used is the one provided with the product. If a computer is connected to the product, make sure that the computer is connected to a grounded (three-prong) wall outlet. Make sure that the power cord is firmly connected to both the product and the power supply. Reconnect the power cord to the back of the product. Press the power button ( ) to turn on the product. Reconnect the USB cable to the back of the product. If the issue is resolved, proceed to Step six: Print a self-test page. If the issue continues, proceed to the next step.
Is the receptacle in the wall a four prong or three prong. You will have to match the cord on the dryer to the wall recepticle. If the wall is four prong the dryer cord has to be a four prong. The green wire with the yellow line, that is on the end of the dryer cord, is a cabinet ground and should be attached to the cabinet of the dryer and making good contact. The other three wires on the end of the dyrer cord attach to the terminal block.
