Look at the manual, normally you hold down one key during powerup of
the printer, and it starts to print a selftest, which is builtin to the printer 
You can also print a diagnosis page with supply materials information
and how many pages the printer already did and such. Should be in the manual.
If you can't find it, report back here and i'll find it for you.
