You will need to give a better description of your problem. Saying it does not work even though its connected to the wall outlet, does not mean anything

False paper out message

An 'Out of Paper ' error message displays on the product control panel display, and the product does not pick up or feed paper from the photo tray.

Try to reset the printer:
  • Disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet.
  • Disconnect the USB or Ethernet cable from the back of the product.
  • Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
  • After 30 seconds, connect the power cord to the back of the product.
  • Connect the power cord directly to an electrical wall outlet.
  • Connect the USB or Ethernet cable to the back of the product.
  • Try the print job again.

My printer wont turn on even though it's connected to direct power supply. Why wont it turn on?

Generally the troubleshooting steps are:
  1. disconnect the printer from the data cable to the computer and plug directly into a wall outlet bypassing any power strips/battery backup and then see if it will power on. If it does, run a self test and see if it prints.
  2. If still in a no power state, unplug the power adapter from the wall and the printer, wait 5 minutes, then plug into wall, then in to printer and try to power on again.
  3. If still no power and under warranty, contact manufacturer for repairs/replacement.
  4. If not under warranty and an Inkjet, almost assured it will be less expensive to replace than to repair:

Screen shows ready but can't print

ese follow these procedures carefully and i hope it will solve your problem.

● Check that all trays are correctly
loaded, adjusted, and installed in
the device.

queue or print spooler to see if the
device has been paused. If there
are problems with the current print
job, or if the device is paused, a
configuration page will not print.
Also check the IP address associated with it if it is not connected directly. Make sure it corresponds with the one on the printer.

Won't print

The printer needs to be connected to the wall outlet, and to the computer. That means you need two cords: a power adapter (to wall outlet), and a USB cable (to computer). You also need printer drivers installed. Those come with the printer, on a CD. The printer generally needs to be powered ON for the computer to recognize it.

It started, then stopped!

Seem to be a power problem. Leave your printer unplugged a while. Connect it again and see if the power comes up. Check the power strip outlet, change it for a different one or connect the printer to another outlet on the wall. If still not working your printer needs to be serviced or replaced
