Officejet 6500 710a - redial in 0 sec

My printer is locked up with "fax failed" then showing " redial in 0 seconds". I can't do anything to get it unlocked. I tried the "reset" proceedures listed on forums: powering down, removing cartridges, etc. and nothing has worked.


Does anyone have any answers?

Remove the phone cord and do a hard reset. With the printer "On" pull the power cord from the rear of the unit. wait about 20 seconds , then plug back in.


This is a "hard reset".


Let me know what happens.
