    I have the same problem but it includes a message the it is "Unable to Print" and to check the maintenance chapter of the owners manual. Performed all including replacing all ink cartridges(new), checkingfor jams and foreign debris, and unplugging for a few minutes? Is this the Main board also?

Unplug machine from power outlet. Reconnect and wait until it has come up again. If it freeze again the main circuit board is defective and needs replacement. This spare part costs more then a new mfc!
