  1. Why would the printer change from normal operation change to printing emails in cryptic
    I'm asking this to try help out my neighbor . But I was wondering if the email was the cause ?

    Open NOTEPAD, type a few lines and the <ctl>P to print it.

    If it is reproduced correctly, then it's the goofy email,

    otherwise, disconnect power, wait a minute or two,
    then go through the printer settings and test again.

    Still having a problem, download and install new firmware from the vendor.
