  1. The HP Deskjet 5150 printer will not turn off.
    The status display is always on.
    I have removed the ink cartridges (one is new) and problem is still there.
    I have recycled power on the printer and the laptop.
    I have tried to use HPPDU to check it but that wont connect either.
    Any ideas?

    The internal logic or power supply may have gone bad. Time for a new printer?

    Took unused ink back to Best Buy for $89 refund. For $13 more I got an Epson Worforce 633 (regular $199, on sale for $99).
