It could be that your printer or your router is losing the ip address. You can set a permanent IP address in the machine on the same range as your router. eg 192.168.x.50.
This means the router will always find it and you can also set the address in printer port settings on your computer in the control panel.

Solution 1: This is a purge unit error.
There maybe something jamming the purge unit or just a absorber out of place which is picking up on the carriage preventing it from moving correctly.
Try to move the carriage away from the purge (its where the printhead/carriage parks its self on the right side of the machine) with no resistance then you can shine a torch into the machine and look at the purge unit.
There maybe crumpled paper jammed in the purge.
If all looks well, the purge unit may be defective and had to be replaced.

Solution 2:
The wiper on the purge may have stuck. It slides back and forth and they have been known to stick.
Push it with a long screwdriver to see if it moves.

Solution 3:
Something is blocking the printer inside. It could be a paper jam or a foreign object.
Check using a flashlight, to ensure there is nothing obstructing the paper feed mechanism down inside the printer where it is not easily seen.
If there is nothing obvious, unplug the printer power supply.

Confirm that the printer is still plugged into a working power outlet
try plugging this printer into a known verifiable working power outlet and then try powering it on
if it still doesn't power on I hate to say this but it would cost you more to get it repaired then for you to purchase new the current replacement model for the mx882 is the mx922(Amazon @ $99.00)

Its difficult to give you accurate advice without more detailed information like the make and model of the printer

But I this is a laser printer it is common in some that over time and usage the plastic feeder gears become worned out and missed a lined with the gears of the fused unit.. Sometimes just replacing the fused unit can resolve this issue but if it doesn't then the feeder gears need to be replaced but that's not usually an easy DIY task unless you are a highly skilled mechanical inclined person.... This is typically a 3~4hrs replacement project and should be done by a professional if not under a service contract can cost about $200 plus any parts replaced ...at least that's typically how much I charge

try removing/replacing all cartridges again - ONE AT A TIME. If that doesn't work, open the printer again and check which cartridge LED is not on. Replace the 'LED off' cartridge with a new one.

good luck

You cannot scan negatives or slides with this all in one printer.
You need a film scanner.
