In all likelyhood, a capacitor on the main pc board had blown, they problem caps are TEAPO 6.3v 680uf. Look at the caps and see if any of the tops of bulged up. If so, replace the caps (about .14 each). The caps control voltage to the actuators, without which, the printer's OS never gets past initialization.

Hp officejet 9120 won't power down but won't print either, it seems to be locked up, display just shows dots scrolling right to left

Unplug your printer from the outlet for several minutes and repower it back up. I have had this with my printer and usually solves the problem.

Black printer ink in HP Printer may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

Most probably the power supply has gone bad , and caused damage to the main board.

How to change a fuse in the hp 2800 printer, power up problems

There are 2 fuses inside the power supply unit.

The hard part is getting to the power supply! The power supply is located at the left side of the printer and in the front (the opposite side of the cartridges).
You have to remove the side and top covers.
There are some hidden screws. One is under the button faceplate that you will also have to remove. The entire procedure is tricky especially without a service manual. Unfortunately I couldn’t locate a manual.
Caution always disconnect the power lines and allow some time for capacitors discharge before you attempt any repairs.
I hope you have some luck with yours !!
