How to Reset the HP OfficeJet 6000 and Fix some Common Issues

This post will show you what are the common issues the Officejet 6000 ( e609n ) have and how to reset and fix it. Note that resetting the printer only applies to hardware related issues. If you have a software issue, then resetting the officejet 6000 won’t do any change or fix to the printer.

  • Blinking lights – blinking lights can mean a lot depending on on the sequence of blinking lights. If you have blinking lights on your printer, you might want to check this hp document and check what it means.
  • Printer becomes unresponsive to print jobs from the computer. While resetting the printer can fix this issue, sometimes restarting the print spooler can fix it too.
  • Wireless Issues – if you are encountering intermittent wireless issues, resetting the printer may be able to fix it.
  • Slow printing – sometimes the printer prints slowly due to low memory on the printer. Resetting the printer may clear everything out and would return your print to a normal and responsive state.
Reset Procedure:

Unlike other HP printers, resetting the Officejet 6000 is just straight forward. There is no Hard of soft resets. All there is available is power cycle the printer, where you remove the power cord from the back of the printer, press the power button for 20 seconds to drain all the remaining power from the printer and plugging the power cord back into the printer.
