Have you unplugged the printer and let it sit for 30 minutes? try that and plug it back into the power only!then check to make sure you have the right printer drivers for the printer. is this printer a refurbished printer? youll find a "refurbished" sticker on the bottom of the printer if it is. sometimes a refurbisher switches out the motherboard for another type. this means that the driver is also changed. if you have the right drivers then turn on the pc. turn on the printer. wait for the printer to finish making noises and plug in the USB cable. if this worked, youll hear windows little bing as it sees the printer. if those lights stay and the printer doesnt respond, buy a new one. the motherboard is bad in it!

Hello,
With the printer being as old as it is, you most likely won't be able to get replacement parts for it. I did some checking around, and can't find anything as far as parts.

Compaq IJ650 ink jet printer will not print color.


Just because it’s new does not mean New Old Stock. Your print head is plugged. No if or buts about it. Contact HP and tell them you situation. If they don’t help you, box it up and take it back. Buy an Epson.

Make sure you have properly loaded the paper into the printer. If there is an error message on your screen, follow the instructions on it. If still nothing works try the following: > Check the printer cable. Is it securely plugged into the printer and your computer? > Check the printer status: a From the Start menu, click Settings Printers. b From the Printers folder, double-click the icon for your printer. c From the Printer menu, make sure: > Default Printer is selected. > Pause Printing is not selected. > If you have connected your printer to a device such as a scanner or fax machine, disconnect the printer from that device and connect the printer directly to your computer. > Check the printer port: a From the File menu of a software application, click Print or Printer Setup. b In the Where area, make sure your printer port is set to USB. > Make sure you have not installed multiple copies of the printer software: a From the Start menu, click Settings Printers. b In the Printers folder, make sure there is only one icon for your printer. c If you have two printer icons for the same printer, try printing a test page from each icon. Right-click the icon, select Properties, and then click the Print Test Page ? button. If the test page prints from one icon and not the other, delete the icon for the printer that does not print. If there is still a problem, uninstall and then reinstall the printer software: 1 From the Start menu, click: Programs >Compaq IJ650 >Uninstall Compaq IJ650. 2 Follow the instructions on your screen. 3 To reinstall the printer software, go here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=217392&lang=en& Good luck!
