This error is normally indicative of a logic board failure in the printer.. But, there are sometimes steps we can do to fix the issue.

I just want you to know up front that its possible we need to replace a part. With that being said, lets try a few tests.

Forgetting your computer.. If you place a document on the scanner glass and then follow this guide to make a copy from the printer, not using the computer.

Do you still get the same error code, or a new one? Or does it copy and print without issue?
