Now check if there is any message on the printer display, it should display something like "Enter Special Key Combo"
2. Now press and release in sequence the “1”, “2” and “3” buttons.

Now check if there is any message on the printer display, it should display something like "Support"
3. Press and release the right arrow button until the display says “System Configuration Menu”.
4.Press and release the “OK” button.
Now the display should say “Hardware failure status”. If not there already, scroll the arrow Key over to “Hardware failure status”,
5.Press and release the “OK” button.

6. Press and release the “OK” Button. Message changes to “Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue”.

8. Turn the printer OFF using the power button and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet.
9. Wait for 30 seconds and then replug the power cable
10. Turn ON the printer and let it initialize itself. Then try printing a self test from the printer front panel by pressing the SETUP-->Print Report--->Self Test Report.
This should get it working again.
