Hardware setup troubleshooting

This section contains hardware troubleshooting information for the HP All-in-One.

The HP All-in-One will not turn on

Cause: The HP All-in-One is not properly connected to a power supply.

Solution

• Make sure the power cord is firmly connected to both the HP All-in-One and the power adapter. Plug the power cord into a power outlet, surge protector, or power strip.

8

1 Power connection

2 Power cord and adapter

3 Power outlet

• If you are using a power strip, make sure the power strip is on. Or, try plugging the HP Allin-One directly into a power outlet.

• Test the power outlet to make sure it is working. Plug in an appliance that you know works, and see if the appliance has power. If not, then there might be a problem with the power outlet.

• If you plugged the HP All-in-One into a switched outlet, make sure the switch is on. If it is switched to on but still does not work, then there might be a problem with the power outlet.

Cause: You pressed the On button too quickly.

Solution: The HP All-in-One might not respond if you press the On button too quickly. Press the On button once. It might take a few seconds for the HP All-in-One to turn on. If you press the On button again during this time, you might turn the device off.

Troubleshooting and support

CAUTION:

If the HP All-in-One still does not turn on, it might have a mechanical failure.

Unplug the HP All-in-One from the power outlet and contact HP. Go to: www.hp.com/ support . If prompted, choose your country/region, and then click Contact HP for information on calling for technical support.

I connected the USB cable, but I am having problems using the HP All-in-One with my computer

Solution: You must first install the software that came with the HP All-in-One before connecting the USB cable. During installation, do not plug in the USB cable until prompted by the onscreen instructions. Connecting the USB cable before prompted can cause errors.

Once you have installed the software, connecting your computer to the HP All-in-One with a

USB cable is straightforward. Simply plug one end of the USB cable into the back of your computer and the other into the back of the HP All-in-One. You can connect to any USB port on the back of your computer.

For more information on installing the software and connecting the USB cable, see the Setup

Guide that came with the HP All-in-One.

The HP All-in-One does not print

Solution: If the HP All-in-One and computer are not communicating with each other, try the following:

• Look at the On light located on the front of the HP All-in-One. If it is not lit, the HP All-in-

One is turned off. Make sure the power cord is firmly connected to the HP All-in-One and plugged into a power outlet. Press the On button to turn on the HP All-in-One.

• Make sure the print cartridges are installed.

• Make sure you have paper loaded in the input tray.

• Check that the HP All-in-One does not have a paper jam.

• Check that the print carriage is not jammed. Open the print cartridge door to access the print carriage area. Remove any objects that are blocking the print carriage, including any packing materials. Turn the HP All-in-One off and then turn it on again.

• Check that the HP All-in-One print queue is not paused or offline (Windows) or stopped

(Mac). If it is, choose the appropriate setting to resume printing. For more information about accessing the print queue, see the documentation that came with the operating system installed on your computer.

Hardware setup troubleshooting 9

Chapter 2

• Check the USB cable. If you are using an older cable, it might not be working properly. Try connecting it to another product to see if the USB cable works. If you experience problems, the USB cable might need to be replaced. Also verify that the cable does not exceed 3 meters (9.8 feet) in length.

• Check the connection from the HP All-in-One to your computer. Verify that the USB cable is securely plugged into the USB port on the back of the HP All-in-One. Make sure the other end of the USB cable is plugged into a USB port on your computer. After the cable is connected properly, turn the HP All-in-One off and then on again.

• If you are connecting the HP All-in-One through a USB hub, make sure the hub is turned on. If the hub is on, try connecting directly to your computer.

• Check other printers or scanners. You might need to disconnect older products from your computer.

• Try connecting the USB cable to another USB port on your computer. After you check the connections, try restarting your computer. Turn the HP All-in-One off and then on again.

• If the HP All-in-One is offline, turn the HP All-in-One off and on again. Start a print job.

• If necessary, remove and then install the software you installed with the HP All-in-One again.

For more information on setting up the HP All-in-One and connecting it to your computer, see the Setup Guide that came with the HP All-in-One.

Clear paper jams

For more information about clearing a paper jam, see the onscreen Help.

Print cartridge troubleshooting

If you are experiencing problems with printing, you might have a problem with one of the print cartridges.

To troubleshoot print cartridges

1.

Remove the black print cartridge from the slot on the right. Do not touch the ink nozzles or the copper-colored contacts. Check for possible damage to the copper-colored contacts or ink nozzles.

Make sure the plastic tape has been removed. If it is still covering the ink nozzles, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.

2.

Reinsert the print cartridge by sliding it forward into the slot. Then push the print cartridge forward until it clicks into the socket.

3.

Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the tri-color print cartridge on the left side.

4.

If the problem persists, you may need to print a self-test report or clean the print cartridges. For more information, see the onscreen Help.
