Customer: A mac. Standard OS - whatever it came with.
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

Please note, a rating is only needed when we are finished.

Can you please remove the power to the printer (so unplug it from the power socket).

Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power again to the printer, turn it on and tell me please if it is now operating correctly.

Let me know the results please
