I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.

Where are you getting the password *****?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

from wireles network link

ok, its incorrect Brian, this is why it is saying it is incorrect.
And why I gave the instructions to get the correct one.
Did you follow it?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Yes I followed your instructions the code shown was the one I use maybe the fault is with the printer
It is Brian, all other causes have been eliminated.
It will be the internal memory that has faulted.
A corrupted firmware can cause this. But we have ruled this out.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the printer to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty, 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
