Did it happen after changing cartridges or loading paper? Paper jam? Has anyone else used it? I'm sure you must have tried unplugging and powering it up again. It sounds like a power problem with print head carriage or paper feed...
Logic tells me you may have a short on the control panel board.
Unplug it and work/tap every button on the panel and try again.
I am never going back to inkjet printer. Love multi function color
I find my laser printer much better than an inkjet.
One reason it that is is more reliable. No printheads that don't work
because they're clogged.
One limitation is the laser won't print on glossy photo paper, but I
don't need that very often.
thanks i worked over the control panel, blew the dust out with a compressor. and cleaned the unit completely.
the unit says its connected by wi fi but it wouldnt print.
so i am still troubleshooting that......
the wierd push any button unit powers off problem is gone:)
Have a user manual? No? Download it or read the PDF.
Did you go thru set up? Like security passphrase, etc. Printer
is seeing the WiFi signal but you did not finish set up to
connect. Are you using WiFi router? What is the SSID? Printer sees
it? Then initiate connection routine to that SSID answering questions it
is asking, like WPA2, then passphrase, etc. Or if know how to do WPS,
and if the router and printer has WPS buttons, it makes things simple.
You push WPS button on the router, then push the same on the printer.
Otherwise you have to manually set up. I'd give the printer a fixed IP
address. Some routers like Netgear has software WPS button others like
Linksys(Belkin) has a real button. I never owned a Kodak printer.
If it is really connected did you try to (test)print? What does printer
queue say? My WiFi laser printer is always in sleep, as soon as printer
queue has something print, it wakes up, print, goes back to sleep. Never
goes off line. If you need any more info/help just let me know.
