If your HP Officejet 7100 all-in-one printer will not turn on or fails to clear error messages after components are replaced, you may need to access the device's battery. Removing the battery for a period of time resets the device. If you continue experiencing problems, replace the battery entirely. Be aware that these actions wipe settings saved on the printer, and the data cannot be restored after removal.
