Hi there, Neelimark,


Thank you for your follow up and for your original assistance. The procedure you suggested unfortunately didn't work as there was a main fault with the mother board. HP have now replaced the faulty board and the printer is now functioning proper;ly.


Although I hadn't clicked on the "green" button - frankly because I was suspicious about what additonal "freebie" offer this was going to commit me to on the "Justanswer" website (!!!!), I have spoken with HQ and informed them that your answer was both rapid and helpful. They have said that they will release payment to you following my telephone call with them.
