The instructions are correct, but I would like to add a few things. First I would change item 5 in the easyFIXS instructions to "While holding down the Power button, press and release the Stop button 5 times". I would also add that it is important that the printer is connected via USB and that no other printers must be connected to the computer. If the printer has been used with wireless connection and not USB then a USB driver must be installed first.

Some versions of the instructions tell to release the stop and power button simultaneously. You cannot do that, one will always be released before the other even if the difference is only milliseconds. If the power button is released first then only four presses of the release button will be detected. I think this could be the reason for the confusion about if the release button should be pressed four, five or six times.

press and release the Stop button 5 times
That would be a super clear clarification. I guess there are people that think pressing a button 5 times without releasing the button in between presses does something.

You have a very dark view of people. No wonder @The Hat likes you. Me too.
