1. Turn the device off.
2. Turn the device on. When the memory count begins, press and hold the check button. Continue holding down the check button until all three device control-panel lights flash once and then remain on. This might take up to 10 seconds

4. Press the check button. The device performs a cold reset and then continues its power-on sequence.
5. Check all I/O settings and reset any customer-set device configuration values.
Print a configuration page from the Printer INformation Menu after restarting the printer. The IP address would ideally be a different one if your network is a DHCP network. If not, you will have to manually configure the IP address on the printer. You may do that by accessing the Configure Menu on the PRinter control panel.
Try configureing the printer driver to the new IP address. It should solve the issue.
If that doesnt work, you may want to download a new driver from the website and install it.
