Your power supply is likely at fault here.

You can try to 'reset' the supply by unplugging it from the printer, and then unplug the AC line cord. Plug line cord back in, then plug back into the printer.

If you are still having issues, then use a multimeter to measure the DC voltage at the connector's outside contacts (middle contact is not used). You should have approx. 32 volts. If not, then replace your power supply. There are many sources on the internet. Otherwise, your printer may be at fault, consult your user manual for instructions on a master reset.

HP C6100 printer won't go on -- or off. Plug it in and the blue screen with the HP logo appears on the console (without pressing the "on" button) and that is as far as it gets. The "on" button light goes...


Try This
First unplug the computer from the printer
Connect the printer directly to the wall outlet (there should be no surge protactor in between)
Unplug the power cable from the back of the printer and keep on tapping the power button for next 30 sec and then plug in back the power cable and
check if the same thing happens
Unplug the power cable from the back of the computer
(with one hand) press and hold down the (#) and the (6) button at the same time and plug in back the power cable
Release the (#) and (6) button (the printer may shut down) on the screen it will display SEMI NVM reset
If none of them happens try it once more
if still the issue remains
Do the same by press (#) and (9) button
If still it doesn't work you may change the wall outlet and check if still the issue remains in that case the printer has gone bad and cannot be repaired
Can call HP to return the printer and get an upgrade at low price for replacing the damage printer.

Your scanner unit has failed. It will cost the same as a new printer to have it replaced.

Printer failed


Unplug the power cord from the All-In-One as well as the power outlet leave it unpluged for atleast 1Min time..
Plug the power cord directly to a wall outlet without surg protector. (if possible connect it to a different power outlet)
Before connecting the power cord to the All-In-One press and hold the # and no 6 button and then insert the power cord, do not release the keys
until you see a message a reset (if the screen goes blank then release the keys and turn the power on)
Then check and see if you are able to make a color/Black copy

Good Luck
