It was last working about two days ago. I made no changes to the printer, other then put in new HP cartridges.

 

I cleaned the cartridges to include the contacts on the cartridges

and printer both.

 

I checked the paper, the printout for any discrepancies. I uninstalled and reinstalled several times. I pretty much covered all the bases for the past two days.

 

I appreciate any help given

Thanks for you're help. I tried just about every  step in the link before. I think it's time for a new printer.

 

Thanks again

Hi @R-T-J

 

I recommend you to contact phone support to check the available service options for your printer;

 

Here is how you can get in touch with the touch support.

 

Open link:  www.hp.com/contacthp/
Enter Product number or select to auto detects
Scroll down to "Still need help? Complete the form to select your contact options"
Scroll down and click on HP contact options - click on Get phone number.

 

Take care.

 

Cheers!
