With the printer powered on, remove the power cord from the back.

Wait 2 minutes

Plug back in the power cord and power it on

Do you still have the error?

I think so

Unfortunately, the error that you are experiencing is an internal failure which would require repair/replacement. The bad news is that your printer is outside of warranty and it would cost more to repair the printer than to buy a new one. You can purchase a new one for around $50-$60 at a local electronics store such as Best Buy.

Ok, Since you cannot fix this, I will have to buy a new printer.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
how much did this bad news cost me?
Technician: Harry, Engineer replied 4 months ago

I do not have access to the payment information as a technician. The pricing was setup in the beginning with you and the system.
