Basic troubleshooting checklist

If you are experiencing problems with the printer, the following checklist can help identify the cause of the problem:

  • Is the printer connected to power?

  • Is the printer on?

  • Is the printer in the Ready state?

  • Are all necessary cables connected?

  • Are any messages displayed on the control panel?

  • Was a genuine HP supply installed?

  • Were recently replaced print cartridges installed correctly? Was the pull tab on the cartridge removed?

  • Were recently installed supply items (image fuser kit and image transfer kit) installed correctly?
