Printer failure

Welcome to HP support community.

 

Check for obstructions in the carriage path

  1. With the printer on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.

  2. Open the door to access the carriage inside of the printer.

  3. Look in the carriage path for debris such as crumpled paper or dislodged labels, and then remove any that you find.

  4. Use your hand to move the carriage to each side, making sure it moves freely. If the carriage is stalled or docked to one side of the printer and you cannot move it, continue with these steps.

  5. Close the carriage access door.

  6. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer, and then turn the printer on.
