As the first step, remove the power from the printer and wait 10 minutes to drain reside power which can cause a mis read on the error.
Then plug it in and tell me if you still get the error please

Thank you Richard. It worked. Such a simple solution and one I should have tried first. But the error message seemed so 'serious'.

Your welcome and its always good to check first as this error CAN be serious.
In your case, it was not.
If you 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
