HP Printer Error Code 0x6100004a
Reset the entire printing mechanism
The universal troubleshooting step that is typically recommended by HP technicians in the event that the printing machine refuses to work anymore is to reset the entire printing mechanism. Performing this operation will not require you to be tech-savvy and will not expose your machine to any risks of further damaging it.
On printers, resetting the printing mechanism is the equivalent of performing a power cycling procedure on computers and gaming consoles. A lot of affected users have confirmed that the operation was resolved after they performed the steps below.
Here’s a quick step by step guide on resetting the printing mechanism:
Turn the printer (if it’s not already on) and wait until the startup sequence is completed.
Note: If you hear any noise, wait until the printer enters Idle mode and becomes silent before you continue with the next step.
Disconnect the power cord from the rear of your printer (while your printer is turned on, but in idle mode). Once power has been cut off, remove the power cord from the wall outlet.
Wait for 60 seconds or more before plugging the power cord back into the wall outlet. Next, reconnect the power cord to the rear of your printer.
Turn on your printer and wait until it’s finished with its initial warm-up period.
Once your printer becomes silent and enters idle mode, try to print something and see if the issue is now resolved.
