The HP Deskjet F2400 All-in-One printer normally will function without many delays. The printer does go through a warm-up process when you first turn it on, during which the lights on the printer will flash to let you know the F2400 cannot process any print jobs at that moment. When the Deskjet F2400 detects an error with its operation, the attention light on the bottom left-hand side of the control panel will flash. You have some methods to troubleshoot issues with the HP Deskjet F2400.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Press the "Power" button on the printer's control panel and wait for the printer to boot up. If you press the "Power" button again while the printer boots up, this will turn the printer off again. Continue if the printer won't turn on.

  2. 2

    Examine the F2400's power cord to see that you have it securely plugged into both the printer and the electrical socket. Examine the connection between the power cord and the adaptor box to make sure that it is secure as well. Examine the power strip or backup battery source to make sure you have this turned on, if you don't have the printer's power cord plugged directly into an electrical socket.

  3. 3

    Press the "Power" button again to turn on the printer. If the printer won't turn on, plug the power cord directly into an electrical out and turn on the printer.

  4. 4

    Plug another device into the same electrical socket to make sure the outlet is working correctly if you still can't turn on the printer. Move the printer to another room if it still does not work.

  5. 5

    Click on the "Print" option in the software program you use to print and select the F2400 in the pull-down menu. If you don't see the F2400 as your default printer, click "Start" and select "Devices and Printers." Right-click the F2400 and click to place a check mark next to "Set as default printer."

  6. 6

    Remove all of the paper from the input and output trays if the printer's "Attention" light flashes. Open the printer's top cover and pull out any stuck pieces of paper, close the cover and load the paper back into the input tray.
