    2. Disconnect the data cable from the printer (not applicable to WiFi, Bluetooth or Infrared) .


    3. Unplug
      the printer's power cord for approximately 10 minutes, and then plug it
      back in. If troubleshooting a communication issue, reconnect the data
      cable (not applicable to WiFi, Bluetooth or Infrared).


    4. Turn the printer back on.

    Note:
    If resetting the printer does not work, please attempt any other
    solutions that appeared in your search results.If this is a hardware
    error on the printer, the printer may need to be repaired.
