Since i have not heard back from you i am listing the below steps that can be tried

Please turn off printer and unplug power cord.
Keep the ON button on printer pressed for 10 secs...wait for 2 mins
Plug in power cord and turn on printer.

once the wifi light starts to flash, check on your router

there would be a push button named WPS. It could have the picture of arrows in circular motion on it

you need to press the WPS button and release it

once you do that the printer and router will establish connection and once that is done the wifi light should turn solid blue
