Question about HP DeskJet 1280 InkJet Printer
Paper got jammed. I removed papaer carefully. Now when you press power button, green light comes on and goes off. Tried switching off power at mains and switching on again. have noted 4 others on this site have the same problem. This happens even if printer not connected to PC
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.
