Printer won't print

We just moved, the printer and lap top were placed very securely. We are trying to print up a page to apply for a job and the printer first said "there is something wrong with your printer". That was vague. Then we turned off the printer, rebooted computer and tried again, this time no message and no action, the computer is telling me that I already printed this page and it won't do it again, also, after the second attempt the power button was flashing morse code or somthing. "flash, pause, flash, flash, pause". What could it possibly be saying? Help asap because I'm tring to apply for a job that I really need and would really love to have and I just don't have much time.

I moved my HP 4000 printer from one office to another. When I hooked It back up, it printed out a few pages of symbols and then will not print at all. The ready light is on, but it will not print. Any


If you get a bunch of meaningless symbols on the page the usual causes are a corrupt or wrong print driver, a bad communication cable or a failed formatter or possibly a print job stuck in a queue on the computer that you connected the printer to (pending jobs often corrupt when you reconnect your printer). Unplug the parallel or network cable from the printer and restart and then try to print the configuration page. If it prints then plug in the communication cable and try printing again. Still bad after that reinstall the printer driver. If a fresh driver does not work, try a different cable.

One green flash & 2orange flashes. when the lid is lifted, the carriage won't move to the middle.


First, turn off the printer.

Then, remove/delete all print jobs, if any (printer icon tray > show active printers > select jobs and press delete). If the jobs didnt get exclude and are keeping the status of "excluding/deleting", restart your windows.

After reboot, check if the jobs are gone. If so, turn on your printer and try to print again.

Printer won't print. I went to printer and it says there are 9 items to br pringted in queue but they won't print Printer says it is ready


Good Day Nanawhit!

That happens all the times when first print job encounter a problem and stops printing and it was followed by series of print jobs. Some reasons for stop printing could be a printer out of paper and printer not set as default printer.

The best way to fix it is to cancel all pending jobs. When print jobs window is cleared off pending print jobs, restart your PC and your printer. Then go to your printer and make sure it is the default printer.

After that try printing a test page. Once a test page is successful, you can now print as many as you want.

Your quest is confusing.You need to install the printer in all your laptops in order to do a print job.If you want to scan a job from each laps all need to be with the printer wireless configuration.

My printer refuses to print. The Red Status light came on so I checked and found there was a paper jam - cleared that. Can get green light to come on if I press the job cancel button but still cannot get...


Perform a Factory Reset


Turn the printer power switch OFF on the right side of the printer. Check that the front cover is closed.


Turn the printer power switch ON while holding down the GO button until the Toner, Drum, and Paper LEDs are lit.

Release the GO button. All LEDs will be off.


Press the GO button 8 times. The Ready LED will flash briefly while the printer is reset. After the printer is reset the Ready LED will be lit.



Print a Test Print Page


Print the Print Settings by pressing the GO button three times.

- If the Print Settings pages do not print, check for alarm lights on the printer. Clear the printer error before trying to print again.

- If the Print Settings pages print, the problem is isolated to printing from your computer. Verify the printer cable connects from the back of the computer directly to the printer. If the cable has become disconnected, loose, or connects through another device, the printer may not be able to print.

How do you print on both sides of the paper on an Officejet 6500? Also, I tried to scan a picture, but it would not scan. I run the printer as wireless to a lap top? Why would it not scan Thanks G


Unless you have a printer capable of "duplexing", you won't be able to print on both sides of the paper automatically. The only other way to do this is toi print on ONE side, then place the printed page back on the paper tray and print the SECOND page on the other side. You may need to try a few times until you get it the way you want, but it is diable this way.

Cant get my printer to work


A print code that always goes through as a scan could be a sign of crossed circuits in either the unit itself or the cable you are using.

Try another cable if you can and see if this clears up the problem.

Also be sure you have the right driver and that the printer doesnt have to be locally set to print to accept print jobs from your laptop.
