Printer not booting up after power lose.

Power was lost during a storm a few days ago and ever since, the printer has not finished booting up (powering up) Well, I call it booting because on the screen is the hour glass which in times past has gone away and then finish powering up. right now, the power light is flashing and the hour glass is still there on the screen that has the HP logo. What can I do if anything?

    I have the same problem, power outage (not due to a storm) and at first it just kept making the noise like when the printer is printing, but the print head never moved. The hourglass stays on the screen the on button is flashing and nothing works. I have unplugged, rebooted, and it won't work

    I, too, had power outages today. Ever since all I get the hour glass on the screen with the HP logo for about ten seconds, then black for five, then back to the hour glass. A very small, dull click is also going on. The printer cartriges do not slide to center when I open the front. I have rebooted several times, as well as reinstalled software and hooked it up to another computer. Nothing works. I hope someone can offer a suggestion.

    I have the same problem. I've unplugged the printer and disconnected it from the computer and left it overnight. When I plug it back in, I get the hour-glass and the clicking noise.

    After every storm that we loose power, my printer buggers up, too. I get the screen with the HP logo and the hourglass when power comes back. I unplug the printer from the back, wait about 30 seconds and plug it back in. It sounds like it's going through the restart stuff. The ink cartridges do their thing fine. It's the light/lens bar under the glass that messes up. It comes out from the right a couple of inches then moves back to the right and gets stuck making a "bump-bump" noise. I tried chatting with HP. They said it was a hardware malfunction and I could trade it in towards a newer machine at a discounted price. I know I've pressed something in the past that helped it reset but don't remember what. What you guys think?

    Thanks! :o)

Hi guys. I had the same problem, but looked at this thread. I guess mine was related to the power, because when I moved my plug from a power strip to a wall outlet, it worked fine.

No power. Machine was working fine just a couple of days ago. I noticed power was off. Unplugged,verified power from plug. I may add that we had no lighting storm and I have called Brother and been told...

I don't know what kind of printer you have, but before you consider paying 'an expert' or anyone to fix your existing printer, you might want to consider buying a new printer given the UNBELIEVABLE DEALS for new all in one printers.

I bout an HP Printer/Scanner/Fax from walmart online for $20 and it work just fine.

The replacement ink cartridges cost more (that's the gimmick for the low cost to buy a new printer).

just a thought

Printer just doesn't work

lightning might cause the problem. if your printer is under warranty send it to them and they will use some tools to fix your printer. sometimes lightning interupts the electricity on your house. im experiencing that when stormy weather and we got no power. hope that helps!

R1800 Won't Power Up

Just check the power cord of your printer it maybe don't have any lost connection or change the power cord. If did not work also their was a problem of your powersupply. You need to bring it to the electronic center technician for the proper repair of the power supply.

After power outage the printer won't power up.

The printer is dead, the surge got thru and fried it. Replace it and the surge-protector.
