On the back of the router is a reset button. Using a paperclip, can you push and hold the reset button in for 10 seconds, then release.
Wait 5 minutes and then restart the printer and the computer and then try to print.

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
yes, it is the printer that has faulted Alan, we have ruled out everything else.
It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
