Please follow the instructions given below:
1. Connect the printer directly to the power outlet. Surge protectors can actually draw power away from the printer. If this fails, please try multiple power outlets to ensure your specific outlet is not damaged, and make sure the printer is not connected to the PC while testing the unit.
2. When trying to power on the printer, feel the power supply box (if there is one) and note whether or not it is warm. If it is warm, the problem is not in your power supply, but most likely in your printer. If it is cold, the power supply might be defective.

Please try to print the self test

My hp deskjet 2050 printer cartidge carrier wont move to the left side and all light blinking?


Hi,

Turn off the printer. Remove the cartridges and try moving the carriage manually from right to left or left to right 5-6 times. There can be mechanical issue if it does not move even when the printer is off.

Regards,
Sean

The ink cartridge wont come to center


Turn of printer. Turn it on, watch the carriage move, when it goes to the other side quickly unplug your printer, it should stop somewhere along the middle of the printer, now u can freely move it by hand to the position that you wanted, you can now remove the cartridge and replace it with a new one, after doing what you need to do just push the carriage towards the right side where it should be parked. Good luck!

The printer turns itself on autamaticcally and wont stop printing


You need to cancel all pending print jobs on the queue. If you see the printer's icon on your System Tray, lower right corner of your computer, right click it and choose Cancel Print Jobs. Or you can double click it so that it will show you the current printing job or those in queue. Select and delete them. If this does not cancel the pending print jobs, disconnect your printers power cord and shutdown the computer. After like 10 minutes, turn the printer and computer back again.

Just moved. New laptop. Computer says 2 pending printing jobs but wont print. Message from printer: "ofline" Help


You may try the following suggestions:
  • While it says offline, right click the printer icon and cancel print jobs.
  • Right click the icon again, then 'Set Printer Online'.
  • Power cycle the printer. Just turn it off and then turn it back.
  • Reinstall the printer by running the 'Add Printer Wizard' and let it automatically find your printer to be reinstalled.

Printer failing to print


start --> run --> services.msc

press enter / click on ok

scroll down to print spooler and right click on it and click on restart and then go back into printers and faxes and right click on printer and cancel all documents or delete the print job

If that fails to work you may need to use the utility that came with your printer to cancel it - short of that you can just turn the printer off for about 5 seconds and back on.

What happens when you try to print?
1. When you try to print do you see the printer icon on the taskbar? (lower right)
2. Do you see the printer in your printers folder?(start/settings/control panel/ printers) Might need installed
3. Is the printer your default printer? (right click on the printer in the above area and select "set as default printer")
4. Is it plugged in, turned on and plugged into your computer?
5. Has the software been installed or recently updated?
Let me know if this helps
