hp officejet pro 8600 display screen now bright white.

Hp Officejet pro 8600/Windows 7 64 bit.

 Printer has been fine since I purchased it but now the display screen is bright white abd I cannot see anything.  If it is a setting that was changed I cannot see to correct it. How can I correct this?

With the power on, unplug the printer from the outlet.  Wait 5 mins and then plug it in again and power it up.  If the same occurs the printer may need service.

Printer Hint #1 - Always buy a printer with a display panel for easy configuration.
Printer Hint #2 - Always buy a printer with separate black and separate color cartridges.
Printer Hint #3 - Always buy a wireless printer with an Ethernet port for backup.
