  1. Step 1

    Ensure that the HP printer cables are properly connected. Turn off the printer, unplug it and disconnect all of the printer cables. Plug it back in and reconnect the cables.
    1. Check the status of the connection between your printer and your computer. If you are using a network connection, make sure all the details (IP address and ports) are aligned with your printer’s configuration.
    2. Perform a power cycle of the entire setup (your computer and the printer) before you move on. There may be some misconfiguration that might induce unknown problems. Turn all the modules off, take out the power cord from the devices and let them sit like for 10 minutes before plugging everything back in.

  2. Step 2

    Check the HP printer cartridges and print heads to ensure that they’re installed properly. Also, see if the printer cartridges are empty. If the ink cartridges have sufficient ink, reinstall the cartridges and the print heads. If an ink cartridge is empty, replace it with a new one.

    Check the print settings of the printer and make sure that the margins are set to at least the minimum margins that your HP printer supports. Also, ensure that you’ve selected the correct printer settings for the paper size and type of document you’re trying to print.
