Welcome to HP Support Community


I would like to help

 

Please try these steps

 

- Turn on the printer.

- Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you continue.

- Disconnect the USB cable from the rear of the printer. If your printer has a network or wireless connection, leave it connected.

- Remove the ink cartridges from the printer and clean the electrical contacts with a lint free cloth

- With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer and from the wall outlet or power strip.

- Wait at least 60 seconds.

- Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.

NOTE: HP recommends connecting the printer power cord directly to a wall outlet.

- Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.

- Turn on the printer, if it does not automatically turn on.

- The printer might go through a warm-up period. The printer lights might flash, and the carriage might move.

- Wait until the warm-up period finishes and your printer is idle and silent before you proceed.

- Reinsert the ink cartridges, and then close the ink cartridge access door.

- If you receive a prompt to print a calibration page, do so.

 

Also ensure the Firmware is updated https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c02919168

 


Thank you

I’ve looked with flashlight in every nook and cranny and have not gotten paper out that isn’t complete. I think it had something to do with cartridge thingee. It’s on the right and won’t move freely back and forth unless I shut off and on with lid open during start up. Then I can move but goes right back to right side. Shouldn’t cartridge carrier stop in middle?  Thanks
