HP Officejet 4650 Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting on the HP Officejet 4650
The HP Officejet 4650 Troubleshooting is well evolved totally perfected design for an AIO printer. However this does not rule out mechanical errors or human error components lending to the printer not being able to accomplish set tasks. HP Officejet 4650 is shipped with a troubleshooting guide that covers the basic aspects of troubleshooting and can be adhered to in cases of resolution of simple issues that may arise.
Printer Not Printing
After giving the print command there may not be any corresponding activity on the HP Officejet 4650. This may be due to a multitude of reasons. The steps to check out the issue are as follows –
- Check the power status of HP Officejet 4650.
- Check if the network is enabled and if the internet connection is stable and connected.
- Check for physical detachments of cables, and check if the wireless is switched on the printer.
A reset of the local wireless password is oftentimes the reason for the printer going offline. Sometimes when the password is changed for the local network, the printer configuration is often overlooked. The following are the chronological steps to be taken to resolve the printer offline error. The error for the printer to appear as offline is identified on the computer, mobile or tablet in the printer notification area. The first step is to check if the HP Officejet 4650 is powered on. Then on the touch sensitive LCD readout navigate to the wireless module and check if the printer is showing as connected to the wireless. If the printer is not connected, then you need to run the wireless connectivity wizard and go through the steps to connect the printer back on to the network. In the case of wired networking, ensure that the physical cable is not detached from the printer and also on the router end. If the printer still shows as offline but the hardware end is perfectly connected, remove the printer from the printer setting and reinstall the printer with the drivers.
Printer not connected
After the print command has been issued the HP Officejet 4650 may not commence printing and may be stopped at the spooling stage. The status can be seen from the print notifications on the computer from which the print command is given. The HP Officejet 4650 is a non- portable design and normally when the printer is installed there is no occasion to actually move the printer at all. So over time there is a possibility that the printer may have been moved, thereby dislodging the cables. So check if the connecting cables are secure both at the printer end and at the router or the computer end. Restart the printer and check the LCD for connection status after reboot of the printer. If the wireless connection is showing as not connected, then run through the wireless setup process from the LCD screen, under the module wireless network.
Compliance issues and general non-compatibility are the major reasons for printer not working on a particular OS. The command areas of the software are Operating System dependant and they require full compatibility with the printer software in order to function seamlessly. Not all issues that may arise on the HP Officejet 4650 are a result of continuity interruptions or hardware. HP Officejet 4650 not being able to print could be a result of OS issues. The result of OS updates may make drivers incompatible unless the corresponding drivers have also been updated. OS issues manifest themselves when there is a non-updated software scenario.
When there is a paper jam, the result is usually due to excess dust or moisture leading to sheets of paper sticking together. The main reason of Paper jam can be countered by proper sieving of the papers before loading the input tray, by proper aligning of the guides. Sometimes, tight guide placement too can lead to paper jam.
When the hp officejet 4650 setup encounters a paper jam, switch off the printer. Remove the paper output tray and see if there are remnants of paper from the jam in the output area. Then slide out the input tray and check for jam in the input derailleurs. By flipping the hp officejet 4650 on the right side, you can examine the bottom of the hardware where the paper loops through and the jammed paper can be removed slowly and carefully from this area. Now care should be taken that the paper is removed slowly and not in a stop and go manner.
When there is a paper jam the HP Officejet 4650 alerts the user with an error message on the touch sensitive LCD screen. After switching the printer back on ensure that the error message has gone.
Prints a blank page
The most common cause of printing of blank pages is if the printer has been sitting idle for a long time. After every print command is executed there are some ink residues on the print head that get deposited. When the printer is used regularly these deposits get routinely flushed out and the quality of the print stays the same. However if the printer is set idle for some time these deposits may dry and that is when the print head gets clogged, there is no chance for print output to happen, and the result is a blank page print. When there is no error prompt and there is a blank print, then navigate to the print head cleaning module under maintenance and run the cleaning software that is built into the printer. The Printer will use up a sheet of paper to print the test results. If the heads are clean and the printer is still printing blank pages, it could be that there was a software update or the drivers are corrupt. Reinstalling the printer after checking for updates will solve the problem.
HP Officejet 4650 is not immune to network issues, as the cause of the issue can for the most part, be external. As with connectivity issues, sometimes with a change in the router passwords, the printer would have not been updated. As a result of poor or cut network connectivity, the printer will not be able to carry out the print command and the result may be sub optimal. To correct the network issue, the first step is to physically check the condition of the network, if the printer is connected locally. Over time there may be physical degradation of the network cable and this may lead to break in network connectivity. If the actual network connectivity has been tested intact, then it will be incumbent upon the user to reinstall the network preferences in order to rule out data corruption.
