I saw someone post this same issue with a different model printer.
Plug in printer, and photo paper light comes on - whether there is paper in the paper tray or not.
Hit power button - get power light but printer is frozen.
Have tried reset.
Have tried printing test page - no success.
Have tried pulling out the power plug, pressing power button 5 times, leaving 60 seconds then plugging in again. No success.
Does anyone have a solution to this?
