Introduction

This guide provides instructions to replace the AC power adapter on an unresponsive HP Officejet Pro 6230 Printer. Even though this is an older model printer, it is wireless: this makes it a perfect candidate for iFixit because most people would throw away an old model printer when it's dead, but since it is wireless, it still has the potential to be used alongside new technology. Because of its age, there are not many online guides to help with repairs.

Parts
