Try removing the power cable from the socket at the back of the printer. Once out, gently move the printhead to the switch end of the printer. Plug the power cable back into the back of the printer and with a bit of luck it will reset when you switch the printer back on. Do not remove the ink cartridges unless they need to be replaced. Once out they usually register as empty with no ability to reset them - you have been warned.

Hi,
Try the following:
Power on while holding down: Alt + LF/FF + load/eject + Micro adjust

This will reset the firmware and should cure the issue for you.
Cheers
