How To Fix It
The power cycle should clear the error. In the event it doesn't, parts and knowledge will be needed. We always recommend repairs be made by a factory authorized service technician. In cases where a tech is not available, self-diagnosis and repair may be an option.
We recommend not attempting any repairs without proper training, knowledge, and tools. Ignoring this recommendation could have undesirable results like severe injury, or death. In cases where the printer model is no longer supported, the following information may be helpful.
Old Printers vs. New Computers
