I have found you need to be very accurate with the placement of the of the paper guide box and ensure it is completely locked in to ensure the printer will turn on.
This is the manual feed box at rear of the printer.

Excellent advice! it worked! What I did was take the box out and free the lock as becomes "set"
Thanks to Fixya the printer which had sat at another I.T staff members desk and apparently "stuffed" is now all go, after new ink carts and alignment.

Ensure you place the box behind the printer properly. There are sensors detecting the presence of that box. If it is not locked properly, the printer will not turn on.

The green light above the Power button flashes when printing is in progress. Caution! Always use the Power button on the front of the printer to turn the printer on and off. Using a power strip, surge protector, or a wallmounted switch to turn the printer on and off may cause premature printer failure

Paper jam hp deskjet 1280


Hi syarief03120,

Actually you can manually remove the paper from the printer. It can be pulled out from the feed area.
And to clear the paper jam message: You have to take the back cover off, there is a reset switch in the top left hand lock hole. Use an object to push in the pin hole. After that put back the cover on. This should help you fix the problem.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Follow the steps for fix HP Printer Carriage Jam

  • Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
  • Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
  • Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.

HP deskjet 1280 paper jam


Yes you can manually remove the paper. It can be pulled out from the feed area (pulled out backwards).
To clear the jam status....
Take the back cover off, there is a reset switch in the top left hand lock hole. Push a pen (or similar) into this hole, the switch will give slightly and be the same depth as the others.

put the cover back on, all should be well

Seems to have frozen after removing a paper jam


Please explain: when you push the ON/OFF button:
1) the green light will go on and remain on or
2) it will blink and go off after a short time ?
In case 2), remove the rear door and put it again in place correctly (make sure it is well seated in place).
If the door is not installed correctly, the printer will refuse to switch on.

I had this problem too and found that the rear cover (the one that you remove to clear a paper jam) was not correctly fitted and locked. After resetting the vover and fully locking it worked! Try it.

You have a paper jam. get a torch and thoroughly check doen behind unit where paper goes after removing all paper. Oopen cover, let carriage move, once settled, check everywhere her too, all around, rollers, near carriage, teeth, sides, etc, and remember it can be the tiniest slip easily missed. Good luck.

Paper jam


Carefully pull it out. Try not to rip the paper, because you may get some stuck inside. It may be necessary to open the printer up and even remove part of the cover to get it all out.
