OfficeJet 4500

When my OJ 4500 goes to sleep it doesn't wakeup it stays in that mode.

Incoming Fax, Wireless print job, direct command by computer will not wake it up.

You have to unplug the power source and let it recycle before you can use it.

Then you never know when it will go back to sleep.

Re: OfficeJet 4500

well you might want to try this step this would reset your printer to factory defaults...

  • Unplug the power cord from the HP All-in-One.
  • Wait for 20 seconds.
  • Press and hold # and 6 while plugging in the power cord to the HP All-in-One.
  • Release the buttons after the HP All-in-One starts up.
  • The HP All-in-One will now be reset to factory defaults.

    you would know that you did the right thing if the printer asked for your country/language at startup,


    or there would be another solution for these which is not really recommended and that is to turn off the sleep mode on your printer, i would suggest you to call hp's technical support 18004746836

    Note there is no option on the 4500 to turn off sleep mode.

     my power save mode got stuck on my hp 4500 wireless

    on some forum they advise to set the power save to = 0 so it will not go to save mode.

    I changed the power save setting using * + # buttons then pressint 1 2 4 code and going to change power save setting to 0.

    but now the printer is constantly going into power save and does not wake up.


    I tried to restore to manufacture mode: unpluged the printer and plugged **bleep** again while pressing # and 6, the printer restared asking for language ang country but after choosing it went back to power save mode, refusing to start.


    is it a brick ? 

    what can I do?
