Hi, Try this: Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer. Then, unplug the USB from the back of the printer. After a minute, plug the power cord back in. Let the printer boot up for a minute. Then plug the USB in again. Let the USB get connected. If you don't see any errors and you setup your printer, then that should have reset the "other operation".
Thanks for using FixYa.

  1. Without turning off the product, disconnect the USB cable from the rear of the product. NOTE: The USB cable connects to the port on the back of the product. The port is labeled with the USB icon (c01424575.gif ). Remove the cartridges from the product.
  2. Wait for the 'Insert Cartridges ' message to display on the control panel.
  3. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
  4. Wait 60 seconds.
  5. Reconnect the power cord. If the product does not automatically turn on, press the Power button .
  6. Reinsert the cartridges, and then close any open doors on the product.
  7. If you receive a prompt to print a calibration page, do so.
  8. Reconnect the USB cable to the rear of the product, and then try printing again.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Hi.

Try the following in order:

Disconnect printer power cord.
Turn off computer.
Disconnect computer power cord. (if laptop also remove battery)
Restart first computer than printer.
(this may look stupid, but it drains power that can jam USB ports and cause malfunction).

Clean the metal plate contacts in the ink carriage using cotton and isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution.

Try turning off printer and performing a new cartridge installation. Use the HP software cartridge replacement procedure, do not simply swap cartridges.

Disconnect printer USB, reinstall printer software, connect printer back when prompted by setup wizard. Updated software for this model available at Software & Driver Downloads.

If you have spare cartridges, test them, the problem may be caused by a defective cartridge chip. Non original or refurbished cartridges commonly cause similar problems.
