Copy says turn of printer. Not sure if that means turn off (dropped second f) or if it means turn on (mistyped letter)

It most likely means "turn on" since the printer is not detected when switched off...
Tried the MPTool resetter with 3rd-party Cartridges which are in "not recognized" state on the printer and it doesn't work for that.
Same with manual reset.
