Welcome to the HP Support Community.

 

Try connecting the Printer to a different wall outlet directly.

 

Try a firmware update: https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c02919168

 

Use the control panel menus to set the amount of idle time before the printer enters sleep mode. Complete the following procedure to change the Sleep/Auto Off After setting: 1. From the Home screen on the printer control panel, swipe until the Setup menu displays. Touch the Setup icon to open the menu. 2. Open the following menus: ● System Setup ● Energy Settings ● Sleep/Auto Off After 3. Select the time for the Sleep/Auto Off After delay.

 

Let me know if this helps.
