HP Officejet 8040 printer error when printing from iphone

HP Recommended
HP Officejet 8040

When I try to print from my iPad or iPhone, it starts to print, then stops, all lights flash, there is an error message that tells me to turn off my printer but none of the buttons are operational.  It prints fine from my laptop.  I checked network connectivity and everything is marked as pass and it has the correct network name.  The option is to unplug.  After several attempts, now it won't even try to print anything from my iPhone
