Resetting the printer. After the Ink Service Module has been replaced, trigger level 1, 2a, 2b, or 3 will still be displayed when the printer is turned on. Reset the printer to remove the trigger level messages.
CAUTION: Do not reset the printer if the Ink Service Module is not replaced. The spittoon may overflow. Follow the instructions below to reset the printer.
  • Turn on the printer
  • Press and hold down the Cancel button
  • While holding down the Cancel button, press and hold down the Resume button
  • Hold the Cancel and Resume buttons down for 8 seconds and then release both buttons. The Right Print Cartridge LED and the Resume LED will go off and the printer will return to a Ready state.
  • When the printer returns to the Ready state, it indicates the printer was successfully reset.

    Paper jam

    Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
    Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
    Hope this helps. Bud
