Thank you for posting on HP Support Community.

 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I understand that your HP printer is not working correctly, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details:

  • When was the last time it worked fine?
  • What are the troubleshooting steps you have tried so far?
  • What is the operating system?

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.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
