No power ON

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)

    How to remove the ink cartridges?

    r_1.gif Make sure that the printer is on. The fontp.gif power light should be on, but not flashing. r_2.gif Open the printer cover. r_3.gif Press the fontb1.gif maintenance button. The print head moves to the black or color ink cartridge replacement position, the fontp.gif power light begins to flash, and the fontb1.gif error light begins to flash or remains on.

After replacing the black cartridge, press the fontb1.gif maintenance button again to switch to the color cartridge replacement position. 98a04.gif r_4.gif Lift up the ink cartridge clamp as far as it will go. The cartridge rises partly out of the cartridge holder. Lift the cartridge out of the printer and dispose of it properly. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it. 98a05.gif r_5.gif Remove the new ink cartridge from its protective bag. Next, remove only the yellow tape seal from the cartridge. Do not touch the green IC chip on the side of the cartridge. 98a06.gif r_6.gif Place the ink cartridge into the ink cartridge holder, and then close the ink cartridge clamps.

    New HL-5240 printer red status light upon powering up

    My HL-5240 did the same thing, Here is what I found:

    Look at the back of the printer. Pull down the back cover. Look to the right and the left of the exposed internals of the printer and there should be another handle/knob you can pull down. Pull these both down simultaneously and check to make sure there isn't a piece of paper in there! This was a shock to me! My office printer was held up for days until I found this hidden door in the back! I felt like an idiot that it was from a stupid paper jam!

    Based on the lights you are already out of one or more ink cartridge or an ink cartridge is not being recognized/expended.

    -You cannot print if any ink cartridge is expended.
    -Leave the empty cartridge installed in the printer until you have obtained a replacement.

    Once you start the ink cartridge replacement procedure, you must complete all the steps in one session.

    1. Open the printer cover and press the INK REPLACEMENT button, located under the printer's cover. The print head moves to the center and the lights flash.

    2. Lift up the ink cartridge clamp. The cartridge rises up from its holder.

    3. Remove the cartridge and dispose of it carefully. If ink gets on your hands, wash them with soap and water. If ink gets in your eyes, flush them immediately with water.

    4. Unpack the new ink cartridge and remove the yellow tape. You must remove the yellow tape from the top of the cartridge. Do not remove the clear seal underneath the cartridge. Do not touch the green circuit board on the back of the cartridge, or you may inhibit normal operation and printing.

    5. Tilt the new cartridge toward you slightly as you insert it. Lower the cartridge so that the tabs rest on the hooks. Do not place the cartridge tabs under the hooks.
    6. Press down firmly on the ink cartridge clamp until it snaps in place.

    7. If you need to replace the other ink cartridge, repeat steps 2 through 6 before continuing with step 8.

    8. Press the INK REPLACEMENT button and close the printer cover. The printer begins charging the ink delivery system.

    9. Wait until ink charging is finished (the power light stops flashing and the red error light goes out).

    Not working

    This maybe down to a faulty cartridge replace cartridges and then retry. You can try the following to obtain a test sheet.

    • Turn on printer
    • Hold power button down (While printer is on)
    • Press the paper feed button once
    • Release both buttons
    This will printout a test sheet but I really do think that it is a faulty cartridge problem.

    Hope I could help
    Thanks J
