Nice to meet you, *****!
Let's try to reset the Printer here:

  • With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  • Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  • Wait at least 60 seconds.

What next?

  • Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
  • Reconnect the power cord to the printer.
  • Turn the printer on. HP recommends plugging the printer directly into a wall outlet.
  • Also, try connecting the Printer to a different wall outlet directly.

Let me know if this helps.
