Good day Sir,
To clear the error clear the paper path and remove power for about 8 to 10 seconds.

Try to read the service manual of you printer. here's the link below where you can download your manual.

Try printing a test page. Is it also blank? If so, you should check your ink system (cartridges full, etc.)

Hi, these means that you have printer engine communication error.

You can try to remove back cover and reconnect all connectors on main board.if that doesnt helps. in 90 % of cases you will need to change the dc controller.

If you need I can send you the service manual.
