HP OfficeJet 4650 will not power on after going off

HP OfficeJet 4650
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have had this printer for 2 years. It has always behaved in a way that after 15 minutes it goes off and it comes back on when pressing the Power button or send a print job. However, that is not the case anymore. It will go off and it will not come back on when pressing the On button. I have to phisically disconnect it from the power supply and connect back on for the printer to start. It has the latest software/drivers. Could you please advise? Thanks in advance.

@insight974, Welcome to HP Support Community!

 

This could be an issue with the settings on the printer or the printer hardware itself. Let us try the steps below-

 

Update the printer firmware

Download available firmware updates from the HP website

With the printer on and connected to the computer, go to HP Customer Support - Software and Driver Downloads, and then identify your printer. Look for and install any available firmware updates. For more information, go to Updating or Upgrading Printer Firmware.

 

Assign manual IP to the printer

The steps on how to set a manual IP address can be found here.

For the DNS servers please use 8.8.8.8 for the Manual Preferred DNS Server and 8.8.4.4 for the Alternate DNS server. These are Google’s public DNS servers.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

I have followed the steps and was successful with changing to a manual ip address. I don't know if the problem is resolved yet. I will let the printer to sleep and see if it turns on automatically when printing is sent.

In a moment, based on the behavior, i will update this post and will let you know if the problem got resolved. Thanks so much.

Hi there. Guess what? All was working fine yesterday. Today when I wake up, the printer was off and when trying to print something, the same behavior, it does not turn on. The power button did not work either. Once again, I had to disconnect the power cable, reconnect, and then it worked. Any ideas?
