Question about HP DeskJet 5652 InkJet Printer
When applying power to the printer, the Green ON button lights briefly, then goes OFF and the Cartridge Yellow button comes ON and stays ON. There is no movement in the printer, i.e. it does not even do a self test!! Any idea what may be the cause? Another problem I noticed ... I could not remove the ink cartridges - the 'black plastic' moulding (don't know its use) in front of the cartridges was in the UP position and blocking the extraction of the cartridges.
Here is what HP suggests: Issue The top access door on the printer may be open, or there may be something wrong with the print cartridge. Solution 1. Check to ensure that the top access door is firmly closed. 2. If the light continues to blink, open the top access door. When the top access door is opened, the print cradle moves so the yellow arrow on top of the cradle points to a drawing of a cartridge. Each drawing describes a symptom. Here is a link to describe the pictures at the top of your printer: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=e&product=304442&rule=36405&docname=bpd09173 It might be that the cover's tab is broken (the tab is what tells the printer that the cover is closed)
