Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. I'm an electrician and would suggest you test the outlet it's plugged into. If the outlet is dead I'll continue with you. If it is working I'll hand the question off to a computer expert.

When the lights came back on the printer made noises and apparently reset. When I tried to use it, it fed the paper through but the text did not print. It apparently needs a reload of some kind. But I can't make it print words.

OK, stand by for a computer expert. Good luck.

The electrician said he would refer me to someone who could help since he could not. I'm waiting.
