HP Envy Photo 6255 All Lights Flashing and Error Code

HP Recommended
HP Envy Photo 6255 All-In-One
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, I own an HP Envy Photo 6255 All-in-one Inkjet, but I have had the issue multiple times where all of the lights flash on the printer and I would constantly get an error code on the screen. I have replaced the cartridges, and unplugged and rebooted the printer several times, but the error code would keep coming up, whether I was currently printing a document or if it was just sitting, idle. I have had this printer for about three or four years now and I don't know whether or not it needs servicing or if it should just be scrapped and thrown away. All of the firmware and software is up to date, I have checked on the HP site.

Hey, Jay!

 

Thanks for the support! If I recall, the error messages would vary from time to time, but the most recent one I had received was 0XB3053080 (or 0XB3050B0). I have had this printer for more than five years, and if there is no solution available or the problem is due to a hardware failure, then I will look into recycling both the printer itself and the ink cartridges through Best Buy's recycling program.

I understand you are receiving a "B305" error on the printer screen.

 

We can perform a factory defaults on the printer to resolve the issue

 

  • The reset instructions are specific for your printer and performing those steps on a different printer may corrupt the device.
  • I've sent you a private message with reset instructions, follow the reset instruction to perform a full reset and re-initialize the printer.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
