    You have reached the end of life mode that HP builds into every printer. The only known cure is a sledge hammer.
    I know some guys that have used this solution successfully after enduring the frustration.

    .357 Magnum works for me, I can shoot right off my back porch here. I have two bad shoulders and a bad back so a sledgehammer is a bad idea.

    Three, here:

    Lexmark laser (one of three, 2 homes). Brother MFC laser. Epson WorkForce MFC dried-out-ink jet, used only as colour/mono scanner with ADF, twin to it upstairs.

    One of each within arm's length as I keyboard, the Lexmark basic laser past puberty, it's oldest sibling voting age.

    B'In Law was a seniour HP Exec, now retired. Usta offer us HP faxes, combos, printers near-as-dammit free.

    Experience with them was sooo very bad, I eventually had to run him off with threats of dire consequences. Damn shame. Their OLD lasers - Canon re-badge at first, then their own - just would not die.

    They had devolved to so flimsy yah lifted one front corner, the silly thing just flexed, leaving all other little feet still on the desk.

    Brother laser MFC auto doc feed, 2-sided, and colour if yah need that, might be your best value for money, present day? My one talks with MY workstation over fast Ethernet on Copper, wife and family over WiFi, fax line no longer in use.

    There are reviews. Some of them are not even paid to lie.

    I also liked Xerox, Kyocera, and Ricoh Afcio. But those were larger!

    Does anyone have a cure? a good swig of Iodine and you never worry about printers any more.

    I didn't have to "worry" about printers until Carlye Fiorina suicided HP off rock-solid printers into the tinsel and plastic bizness. Long time ago.

    Started using Minolta, then Ricoh for the big stuff, Brother for the HP replacements. Lexmark Optra, (the old IBM electric typewriter division), now use Brother for my own use.

    Legal work, I've gone through five by 500 sheet reams of paper in a single morning. Laser, of course.

    Modern Epson Inkjets do right NICE colours, but also dry-out from sitting a year idle, break the bank on ink in a heavy day. Or both.

    I shudda kept the Nicolet pen-plotter, actually.

    Colour laser output is not as lovely, BUT.. the consumables last long enough yah can actually USE them.

    Most folk, emailing or carrying a USB or chip/card over to the local FedEx / UPS / "copying store" when yah cannot AVOID need of colour is not a bad deal. THEIR problem to have good equipment and ink or toner. They have "the work" for it, and averaged all-year, not just the odd "project".
