Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Try holding down the STOP button on the printer itself, for 10 seconds continuously, then let go of the STOP button after that.

You have already tried some of the other things that are appropriate. However, also try unplugging it from the power, leaving it unplugged for 20 minutes or longer, then plugging it in to power again.

If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be appreciated!

If you need more info, or have any comments, use Reply To Expert to respond.

Thanks.
