Frozen printer

Hp office jet 5258

My printer has frozen. I’ve unplugged it several times. I can’t turn it off from the power button.

@dawnym42, Welcome to the HP Support Community!

  • Are you able to print from your computer?
  • Do you see anything on the display screen when the printer is ON?

Reset the printer

  1. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  2. Wait at least 60 seconds.
  3. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
  4. Turn ON the printer, if it does not automatically turn on.
  5. Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you proceed.

Note: HP recommends connecting the printer directly to a wall outlet rather than a surge protector or a power strip.

 

If the issue persists, please reach out to the HP Support in your region regarding the service options for your printer. 

 

Keep me posted for any other assistance.
