Thank you for your response. Done as asked, problem still exists.Thank you,
Michelle, thank you for you attention. The issue is solved. From one of your earlier messages I realised that the ink cartridge cupboard door was open.On closing the same everything came back to life, and the flashing lights went off. Sorry to have troubled you, and i do not object to paying you the said £28.
