Display screen alternates between "paper jam" and "printer failure" after each reset. No jam detected.
Message boards do not provide instructions on determining whether the carriage is stuck, or locked.
What is the expected service life for a lightly used 6978 home printer? Is there a way to access total number of pages printed and pages scanned?
