HP 6950  error message 0x6100004a. Printer won't print, won't shut down.No paper jam.  I tried powering off in the approved manner (and moved the power plug to the wall from an extension lead) but it still won't print and then it won't shut down. I keep trying the powering off but the whole problem starts again. Printer says "There is a problem with the printer or print system".
