Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

I’m sorry to hear you're having trouble with your printer. I know that can be frustrating. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.

Can you please remove the power to the printer (so unplug it from the power socket) as well as your wifi router and power off your computer.

Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power again to the wifi router then the printer, turn it on and start your computer and tell me please if it is now operating correctly.

Let me know the results please

  1. Open the front cover of the printer (to access cartridges).
  2. With the cover open, simultaneously press the Back and Cancel buttons. ...
  3. Scroll through the menu to select a color and yield to reset.
  4. The LCD will read "Accepted" once the reset is complete.

Then tell me if it is accepted
