Thanks Dave

Can you power it off then open it up and check it for any foreign objects, anything that could have fallen in as well as any pieces of paper.

Even a very small torn piece of paper can cause this issue.

If possible, use a vacuum to clean it out, and the best is if you can turn it upside down and shake it to remove anything fallen inside of it.

Then power it on and tell me if it now works please

Richard,
I have vacuumed it out, had it upside down etc & cleaned nozzleson printer and cartridges but no luck. Power has been off again!
Expert:  Richard replied 6 months ago.

Ok, thats a pity as its the internal mainboard that has faulted. This now confirms it

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the printer to have this replaced. 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.

Thank you

I believe it must be out of warranty what is more cost effective, a new pronter or mainboard?
