Check the back of the printer. Open up the back door. There is a barely visible 2nd door which you need to open. Check to see if there is a paper jam behind this 2nd door. Often this is the problem and clearing this back paper jam will clear the red alarm light.
Best solution ever. I never could get my 2270DW to stop giving me the blinking error light. So I went on Amazon and ordered me a HL-L2380DW and bingo my problems went away. Amazing what an extra $20 will cure.

Sir the printer is giving line because the cartiage or toner is not of good quality so it does not melt properly and produces line while the alarm comes and stop printing is due to the problem in charging cathode or gutter
To fix this you first need to remove the ink and the print head. Wash the 4 ink pads in luke warm water. Keep running the water over the bottom of the print head until the water shows no sign of ink colouration. Make sure all of the print head is completely dry before replacing it into your printer. After restarting your printer you will probably see the alarm light still flashing. Now hold your finger on the resume button for up to 2 minutes or until you hear a clunking sound. Hold your finger on this button and the printer will fix itself and the alarm light will stop.
First: Soft Reset 1. Open front cover. 2. Hold down button located under LED's until all LED's
are lit. 3. Release button and make sure drum LED is off, then 4. Close cover
Second: Factory Reset 1. Turn the printer off. 2. Hold in the circular button on the front panel of the printer. 3. Turn the printer back on. 4. When the DRUM light is lit by itself let go of the button. 5. Hold in the circular button on the front panel again. 6. Once the Alarm light comes on, let go of the button. This will perform a factory reset on the printer.
I hope that's everything you want. Please accept this answer if this will help you. Thank you for using Fixya.
Alarm and Data lights on together is from low toner. If shaking of the toner cartridge is not helping, change the toner. Drum light is usually on because of the print counter. If the print quality goes really bad, change the drum and reset the counter by holding the front button wile the front cover is open till all lights come on. Release the button and close the cover. If just Data light is on, check the print ques, some jobs might got stuck there.
