HP Printer Power Cycle – What does it Mean?

When someone tells you to do a power cycle on your HP printer, this basically  means that your need to drain all the power from the printer to return it to a responsive state.

Power Cycling the printer fixes a lot of HP printer issues. Some also call this process as a printer reset. To do this, all you have to do is:

  • Remove the power cord from the back of the printer while the printer is ON.
  • While the power cord is unplugged, press the power button for 20 seconds.
  • Plug the power cord back into the printer and turn On the printer.

There you just power cycled your printer. Good luck!
