Z3200 photo printer starting up in manufacturing mode

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My Z3200 just started booting up into manufacturing mode. I tried pulling the power cord, letting it sit, holding down the power button to drain excess power. It is plugged into the wall outlet.  Anyone know how to get around this and boot normally?

Well, I got it booting up correctly. I started getting error "code 21.13". It kept telling me to reboot. It thought there was a paper jam. After lots a messing around and reading the service manual,  I could see that the drive belt was falling apart and streching on the right side of the carriage. So I ordered a new belt for $40 from LSPcomputer. Hopefully this will fix the issue.
