Hi again,
-not sure if you have resolved your issue, but in case you have not...this is a preliminary solution
-if you need more help...just post a comment..as this will automatically put it in my account to see * respond to

-anyway....this is an excellent high quality printer!
-the flashing amber light on the printer indicates that it is offline..ie. not ready to print
-to fix it...
-assuming that there is paper in it & that the cables are fully connected
-on the lower right...press the resume button once (within the 2 button right hand lower area)
-this should put it back online...and help you to print
-if you need further help...just ask

as well...remember to rank...but understand that anything other than a FIX-Ya..actually lowers my rank...so if the above doesn't help...just ask...
thanks

    Hi again...
    the flashing light on start-up is actually the Waste Ink pad is full
    -it is a tough job to change the pad...but you can override it for awhile...


    • turn off power

    • press & hold RESUME button, then press POWER button

    • continue to hold POWER then release RESUME button

    • Press RESUME Button 2x quick

    • Release both RESUME and POWER

    • Green light will now blink, then stop

    • With Green light on....press RESUME 4x

    • Push Power button to turn printer off
    this should resolve the issue
    remember to rate the solutions...anything less than FIXYA actually lowers my rank...so if you need further help...just ask....hope it fixya'd

Hi,

As you give print command check what is the error msg flashes on ur PC.
Next check whether any paper piece is jammed inside the printer, dust it with Airblower so that cleans out.
Third check the ink levels in both color and black cartdriges.

Light keeps flashing red,amber, green


If you turn off the printer and turn it back on, do you get any noises, ie motor noises, or does it instantly go to all lights flashing?
If you get no noises this usually indicates a board fault and you should look for a new printer.
