I have an HP 4100 and when I go print 1099, all I get is lots of lights and error messages

Is it not connected? Ichanged the ink and added paper

Hello, thank you for using Howly.

Thank you for your clarification.
Please follow these steps to power cycle your printer:

  1. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  3. Wait at least 1 minute.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
  5. Reconnect the power cord to the printer.
  6. Turn the printer on.
