Hi there and welcome

Its an usually issue with it reading the memory which can be caused by residue power so I want you to do the following as the first step please.

Remove the power to the printer by unplugging it from the power socket and wait 5 minutes.

Then connect the power, turn on the printer and tell me if it now prints correctly please.
