1: Check Printer Power, Cables, and Paper

Check that the correct paper is properly loaded into the printer and is not jammed. Replacing damaged cables, plugging in loose or disconnected cables, and fixing paper jams as necessary may resolve the issue.

Open the printer`s web page and Sign in as Administrator. On the General tab select Reset Factory Settings in the menu.
Click the start menu and search for `Devices and Printers`. Select devices and printers in the search bar. This will allow you to see the printers connected to the computer. Click the printer you want to check, and you`ll see the ink levels at the bottom of the devices and printers section.
To enter the [Admin Setup] menu, the administrator password is required. The factory default password is “123456“. To change settings of the machine on the Web page, you must log in as the administrator of the machine.
Check the name of this machine, and click [Update firmware]. On the [Administrator password authentication] screen, input the admin password of this machine, and click [OK]. The latest firmware is downloaded from the website, and the printer firmware is updated. Do not turn off the printer while updating the firmware.

Most printers will stop working when they`re out of paper, ink or toner, or if the unit detects an issue with the ink or toner cartridge. When this occurs, you might receive an error message or notice blinking green or amber lights on your printer.
