SOURCE: out of paper light
I've been stuck with a flashing red paper light for a while. The printer could print from the manual tray and could also print test or diagnostic pages.
So I thought it might be driver related, and indeed it was.
There's a nasty setting in the printer properties that makes the printer go woo-hoo. So go to printer properties > tray settings. Check the "paper size" of "Tray 1". If it's set to "undefined", change it to your corresponding paper format. Click Update, Apply. Now print happily.
I still wonder why that setting magically changed. Hope this helps someone.

Besides your helpful
there are extra doing steps to make my printer back to normal:
- Remove completely the unit toner cartridge, check paper jammed in that unit
- open the basck lid of the printer , remove all paper jammed in that arrea
- Blow out the container inside of the printer, to blow away all paper depris and dust.
- re-install unnit toner, close back lid\re-strat printer like your suggestion
Have a Nice Day

Remove the Toner Drum unit and look for a little blue tab. Slide it back and forth a couple of times to clean a corona wire and see if that helps.

Sounds like a paper jam. There's a flap at the back of the printer-once open you should be able to see if the paper is stuck there. (Exactly the problem I had yesterday-I didn't spot it at first and it nearly drove me mad! :)
