No matter what you use your HP 460 printer for, having some basic troubleshooting skills is essential. The cost of service on a printer like the HP 460 can be quite high, so knowing how to resolve common problems on your own can save you a lot of money. Most of the time, any error messages displayed on the printer will go away when the underlying problem is fixed, but occasionally you will need to do a manual reset to get the printer working again.

Press the "Power" button on the front of the printer to turn it off. Remove the power cord and the battery from the printer as well.

Hold the "Power" button in for at least 30 seconds. Release the "Power" button.

Replace the battery and the power cord and press the "Power" button to turn the printer back on. The HP 460 printer is reset when the power light stops blinking and stays on steady.
