Printer display hanging and power light flashing

HP DeskJest Ink Advantage 3835

Hi. My printer is just hanging and the power button flashing. I have pulled the power cable out and when plugged back and it returns to this state. I checked if any updates are available and it says it is up to date. I have attached a photo of teh printer display and the power light flashes. Please assist.

@MichelleMdJ

Welcome to the HP Forums 🙂

I would like to take a moment and thank you for using this forum, it is a great place to find answers.

 

As I understand, power light is blinking and printer display is stuck,

No worries, as I'll be glad to help you, that said, I'll need a few more details to dissect your concern & provide an accurate solution:

When was the last time it worked fine?

Were there any hardware/software changes made?

Have you tried any troubleshooting steps?

 

Let's try these steps to resolve the issue: 

  • With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer and also unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  • Remove USB cable, if present.
  • Wait for 2-3 minutes, press and hold the power button on your printer for about 30 seconds to remove any additional charge.
  • Now plug back the power cable straight to a wall outlet without any surge protector or an extension cord (This is important) and then plug back the power cord to the printer.
  • Turn on the printer and wait till warm-up period finishes and the printer is idle.

If the issue persists, please contact our phone support:
