Solution 1:
  • Firts, check the cartridges (they should not be empty) and the paper tray.

Solution 2:
  • Power off and umplug the printer for 24h
  • Plug back and switch on

Solution 3:
  • Power off and umplug the printer
  • Press and hold on the "power" button, then plug back the power cable

Solution 4:

Really like the blog and the amount of work you're putting into helping people with common an the not-so-common printer problems out there. The vast majority of end-users have no idea that most printers have their own diagnostics built in. Great work!
