Question about HP DeskJet 1280 InkJet Printer
I just recieved a printer i baught online, it looks fantastic. I was just in the process of setting it up when it came to the part where i had to plug it in and turn it on. I did so and the light on the printer flashes once and then does nothing more. it doesnt start up or anything. I know if it doesnt work i should send it back but this was the only one they had and i wanted this printer more than any other. Plus the hassle of sending it back would be a bit much for me. I really need to get this sorted as i baught this printer for the buisiness i have just set up and im afraid the problems with the printer will delay everything else as the buisiness relys on this printer. Please help me as soon as possible :) Thanks, Mark
I have just sussed out my stupidity.
After hunting through a few HP files on there support page (which was accessed by a strange tooolbox utility on my PC.
There is a removable input box on the back of the printer, the support page says 1) Check the power cord, 2) check the rear input box is installed.
we actually it was so a breif slap to check it was home fully appears to have sorted the problem
must have been a dodgy connection or sensor on the input box fully home position.
Hope this helps someone else.
