Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have a brand new HP Deskjet 3050. When first plugged in, it gives the error code OXC4EB841A (I can't tell if the first character is the letter O or the number zero). I can't install it or do anything with it, not even turn it off with the switch. it just turns itself back on and flashes the same error. If I unplug it an plug it back in, it just comes up with the same error. What does this error mean? How can I fix it? Thanks very much.

The error is probably 0xC4EB841A. This is an internal failure of the printer. You can try to reset and power down the printer slightly differently then just pulling the power cord.

With the printer on, remove the USB cable, if in use, from the printer; I'll often remove this cable from the computer, as well. Open the front door of the printer and remove the ink cartridges. Remove the power cord from the back of the printer. Disconnect the other end of the power cord from the outlet. Wait at least 60 seconds. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet and then into the printer. Turn on the printer if it didn't come on. Wait until the printer warms up and then reinsert the ink cartridges. Make sure that the protective tape was removed from the cartridges. Close the access door and print a calibration page if you see a prompt for one. Scan this page.

Try to install the printer software and connect the USB cable to the computer and the printer when prompted to (if you are using the USB cable).

If the error returns, contact HP. A brand new printer will be covered by their warranty. (Depending on where/when you purchased the printer, you may be able to return it to the store for an exchange. This will depend on the vendor.)

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: flashing on/off light on hp deskjet 3520 printer

Introduction The printer lights indicate the printer status. These lights can be on, off, or blinking (flashing), depending on the status of the printer. The sections below describe the most common combinations of blinking lights, how to fix the issue, and how the issue is caused. NOTE: The light patterns included in this document are described as blinking or flashing lights. For the purpose of this document, "flashing" means the same as "blinking." Blinking lights Printer lights can can blink for more than one reason, so the solution can vary. These solutions need not be performed in a specific order, but solutions for the most common issues are presented first. Blinking lights are often accompanied by an error message on the computer screen, which might help determine the solution. Issue: Power light is blinking

c00374282.gif Solution

Close the cover.

Cause

Printer cover is open. Solution

Insert appropriate media in the In tray.

Cause

The printer is out of paper. Solution

  • Change the printer's print mode setting.
  • Change the printer's paper type selection.
  • Use a different brand of label media.


Cause

The printer has difficulty picking up label media. Solution

Follow each of these steps until the problem is resolved:

  1. Remove the paper from both paper trays.
  2. Press the power button once. Wait a moment for the paper jam to clear.
  3. If printing labels, verify that a label did not become detached while passing through the printer. If the paper jam was not resolved, continue on to the next steps.
  4. Remove the rear access door.
  5. Remove the paper jam through the opening at the back of the printer.
  6. Replace the rear access door.
  7. Reload the paper into the paper In tray.
  8. Print the document.


Cause

There is a paper jam. Solution

Follow each of these steps until the problem is resolved:

  1. Remove and then reinsert the print cartridge(s) into the printer.
  2. Clean the print cartridges automatically using the Clean Cartridges option in the Printer Assistant.
  3. Manually clean the print cartridges and print cartridge cradles:
    • Open the printer cover and wait until the carriage moves to the center.
    • Press the Power button to turn off the printer.
    • Disconnect power cord from the back of the printer.
    • Remove the print cartridges and place them on a piece of paper with the nozzle plate facing up.
    • Lightly moisten a cotton swab with distilled water.
    • Clean the face and edges of the print cartridges with the swab. Do not touch the print cartridge ink nozzles or copper contacts.
    • Wipe the underside of the print cartridge cradle walls using a clean, moistened swab.
    • Reinsert the print cartridges.
    • Close the printer cover.
    • Connect the power cord to the back of the printer.
    • Press the Power button to turn on the printer.
  4. Calibrate the print cartridges.
  5. If the light is still flashing, replace the print cartridges.


Cause

There is a problem with a print cartridge. Solution

  1. Print a printer self-test by holding the power button down with a pencil and opening and closing the top cover four times.
  2. Check the nozzle self-test pattern in the self-test print out. If one or more of the solid rectangular areas are missing, an electrical contact problem may be present.
  3. Remove and then reinsert the print cartridge(s) into the printer.
  4. Print the document.
  5. If the problem persists, follow the steps listed above for cleaning the print cartridges and print cartridge cradle.
  6. Try printing again. If the problem continues, replace the print cartridges.


Cause

The print cartridge has partial loss of electrical interface with the carriage connections.

My wireless printer hp deskjet 3050 is not printing the wireless blue light keeps blinking and does not go solid like it used to what do i do?


if the wireless blue light is blinking, it means it's not connected to the router or it's not communicating with it.If wireless blue light is solid ,it means it's connected to the network.

  1. to start the installation ,click on the start button on the computer
  2. click on programs or all programs depending on the operating system on the computer
  3. look for the HP folder and then left-click on it
  4. inside the HP folder,left-click on DESKJET 3050a or DESKJET 3050 series
  5. inside the DESKJET 3050 folder, left-click on product setup and software
  6. left-click on connect a new printer
  7. it will open up a page with options on how to connect the printer
  8. select wireless and then hit next
  9. if you are prompted to connect the usb ,please connect it
  10. if it asks you whether printer is connected to the network,select no
  11. click on next
  12. if usb is already plugged in,tick the box that says it's already plugged in
  13. hit next

GOOD EVENING, I have a printer deskjet 3050 and that it continually flashes m indicating the following error code "OXC4EB841A" what should I do? thank you


From what I have found using google, your best bet is to go to HP's website, search for the Deskjet 3050 under their support & drivers. Find the latest driver for your operating system and install it. Then try reconnecting the printer and see if it works. At that point, come back and let us know if you need further assistance.

Try cleaning of the connectors inside of the printer. Also, try turning off the printer for a few minutes and restart it being sure all doors are fully closed.
