The printer doesn't print. The carriage doesn't seem to move,however when i pull the plug and put it back in ,the carraige does move. It also does not go off with the regular off button. It has to be unplugged.

@Dov3, Welcome to the HP Support Community!


This seems like a hardware issue with the printer. Kindly perform the steps mentioned in this document - 'Carriage Jam' or 'E3' Error Displays


Also, check for any paper jams inside the printer - A 'Paper Jam' Message Displays for HP Officejet 4400 (K410), Deskjet Ink Advantage (K209), and Deskj...


Re-insert the ink cartridges and try printing. 

Note: HP recommends connecting the printer directly to a wall outlet rather than a surge protector or a power strip.


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
