Sounds like a hardware problem on the printer. Make sure the timer cartridges are all installed along with paper tray. If it does not display the ready status, you probably need a new mb or controller on it.

Remove all cables except power and turn off
remove any sd cards/usb sticks
Remove cartridge, clean contacts on cartridge and printer
leave power off for 1 minute
restart
 If it won't boot at this point you will probably need an engineer

you can buy a service manual here:

but unless you've experience in this field I suggest a service call to Samsung

Hi guys,

Thanks for your assistance.

I purchased the manual and this issue is not documented.

I brought it to a service center to be told that the MB needs to be replaced.

Sending it to a recycling center.

Cheers,
Rene
