Morning, i was using my hp deskjet 1280 printer last night and a paper got jammed, i succeded in removing the paper with care but when i tried to put the printer back on, it refused to come on, what happens is that when you switch on the sorce of power and switch it back on and press the printer on botton, the indicator for on comes on but immediately goes off again, however the ink indicator shows light when i press it or hold down the button, what can i do to solve this, urgent
Maybe the back door (for removing paper jams) is not closed. Rotating door knob needs to be pushed to the end - even if it seems to be hard, there is some more space to the end. Printer won't work if the back door is open.

Actually you can manually remove the paper from the printer. It can be pulled out from the feed area.
And to clear the paper jam message: You have to take the back cover off, there is a reset switch in the top left hand
lock hole. Use an object to push in the pin hole. After that put back the cover on. This should help you fix the problem.
If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.
Follow the steps for fix HP Printer Carriage Jam
Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.

Yes you can manually remove the paper. It can be pulled out from the feed area (pulled out backwards).
To clear the jam status....
Take the back cover off, there is a reset switch in the top left hand lock hole. Push a pen (or similar) into this hole, the switch will give slightly and be the same depth as the others.
