WorkCentre 6015 SMTP error code 016-503

My WC6015 suddenly stopped working on scan to email and provide error code 016-503. There are many things that are happending, like the ethernet port does not seem to work. I have tried to upgrade firmware but it does not seem to be going to the printer from the computer (Ihave tried the network as well as the usb options - the firmware upload seems to go through but the printer does not respond). Back to the scanning issue - I have reset the email server settings without luck.
