HP 2000C initiation problem
the day it (usually) whirrs and groans, spits out a blank
sheet and sits, sulking, all lights rapidly flashing.
If I disconnect the power cable, push the print head off to
the left, let the printer sit for a few minutes then
reconnect the power cable, it (usually) prints fine for the
rest of the day.
Also, I can (usually) get it to print by asking the toolbox
to print a test page. Once it's done that, no further
The (usually) because problem and solution are not
consistent. Occasionally the machine will print beautifully
first off. Other times, one solution doesn't work and I have
to try the other.
When I called HP they gave me the push-the-head solution but
it only worked for a few days, then the problem came back.
Please--does anyone have a clue what's going on here and how
I can fix it?
