You can also try restarting your HP printer. Then turn it off completely and unplug the power, leave it for a few minutes, and then plug the cord back in and turn on the printer. See if your printer can print as normally as before.

SOLUTION 1: Check HP Printer Status
Let’s start with the easy and obvious stuff first

1) Make sure your HP printer has enough paper in the paper tray. If there is paper then make sure none of it is stuck or jammed in the paper feed. If there is please check with your manufacturer on the best way to remove the paper as you don’t want to ruin the internal motor or paper feeder.

2) Is your ink or toner empty? Consult your specific printer’s manual for how to check the ink levels or toner level for your printer. New HP printers will easily display the ink levels or if there is an ink issue on the front screen of the HP printer.

If you need to have your HP printer serviced you may need to contact HP directly via customer support.

SOLUTION 2: Cancel all HP Printer Jobs
Clear out stalled print jobs on your HP Printer

This is a bit more technical but not too advanced that you can’t give it a try. Many times during the life of an HP printer, jobs that you send to it for printing can become stuck in the print queue.

If the job in question stays in the print queue it can stop all other printing from occurring normally on your HP printer. In this case, clearing the print queue of all jobs might help get the newer print requests to go through just fine. Let’s begin!

1. Go to your Windows Control Panel and select “Devices and Printers”

Your control panel can be reached by typing “Control Panel” in the search bar on Windows 10 or in older versions of windows press Window logo key and “R” key on your keyboard at the same time to open the Run dialog. In this dialog, type “control” and hit Enter. This will open Control Panel in most Windows operating systems.
