HP Photosmart C4250 All in One printer

I last used this printer to scan a few papers. It was working fine then.

A couple days ago I noticed that the printer was on, and I never turned it on. It appeared to turn itself on for no reason. I'd have to turn it off, but I'd need to unplug it/ and replug to do it.
So this is a mystery to me. Now it's still doing this, but I can't turn it off.

I tried restarting, removing & reinstalling drivers, etc. Nothing works.

The on button is lit, but doesn't do anything. See pic for details:

Please help me get this fixed. I've never had this kind of trouble before.
 
It is likely toast, I had a similar older model I had bought for my mother that she used all of 3 times to print things and never scanned anything that died after a year. I ended up buying her a replacement mono laser printer that still works fine.

If that's the case, any recommendations on a replacement printer?

Under $300
Print / Scan / Copy
Black ink only or Color / Black Ink

Something that doesn't blow through ink too fast.
