Called Hp, they said it is a firmware problem and they would notify me when they solved it. All I do is unplug and then plug it back in. If that don't work, make sure you have a phone line plugged in you're printer and pretend to make a phone call, this will "wake up" the printer, it will say "phone off hook". Then on the keypad of the printer push the star and pound buttons at the same time, then enter 1, 2, and 4. Scroll thru until you see "system menu" then push the OK button and find "system mode timeout" push OK then enter 1800 and push OK. Push OK again to make sure. That is the dafault setting for this printer. After doing all that you're printer will go to power save mode after 30 minutes sitting idle but it should pop right back to normal by pushing the power button once or sending a print command from you're computer. At least that's what I did and now it seems to come out of power save mode when it's supposed to....gary

Why isn't my HP office jet 4500 G510 a-f printer connected?

Maybe you didn't install the driver properly, i guess that model will need you to install the driver 1st before connecting your printer to the PC.
Try uninstalling the driver...restarting PC...reinstalling driver...connecting printer (while in off position)...switching on your printer.

I have an HP Officejet 4500 G510n. How do you turn off the Power Save Mode. It won't do anything when it is on. Better yet, why does it keep coming on?

This is a known fault with this printer.

You can try this solution:

When the printer is in the Power Save Mode is to press the number "1" key on the printer. For some people, it comes out of power save mode.

To Turn off Powersave Mode Permanently:

Using The Printers Control Panel

1. Press # and # at same time.
2. Then press 1, 2, 7, 4 in sequence.
3. Go to Underware menu. (This is the first menu that pops up after enter that sequence)
4. Go to System menu.
5. Look for System Mode Time Out and set value to 0 and press OK.
6. Press Cancel to return to the main screen.

How do you turn off sleep mode on the hp officejet 4500?

This no doubt violated the warantee, but I got tired of turning the printer around and unplugging the power cord etc.

So I got a cord switch I had (Ace hardware 31089, others will not doubt work) and installed it in the power cord per directions.

Now it is easy to reach behind printer and cycle the power with the power cord switch and thus wake up the printer.
