Status Light on Steady Red and toner light on steady amber color.
I have checked the toner cartridge and drum both. I also took some black tape and covered the toner cartridge where the sensor looks at the cartridge. It still powered up with the error. I am guessing that the sensor that looks at the cartridge and drum is bad. Can anyone help me fix this issue and if so is it worth fixing the unit?

I guess it FixYa didn't accept my (very long, but totally correct) solution that I took the time to type. Because I refused to "sign in". Here's the short version. Load Paper. The same thing happened to me. I replaced the toner cartridge with a new one (because of a FLASHING red light for several weeks) after the red light went to STEADY red. But it still would not print. The paper was "out". When I'd refilled the paper-tray, it printed fine. I had just ASSUMED that the steady-red light meant toner was finally OUT. WRONG! That steady-red light had nothing-to-do with toner; it meant "you're out-of-paper". Don't get confused like I did. Refill the paper-tray. Then take that expensive NEW toner cartridge OUT, and put the OLD toner cartridge back in. And keep using the "dregs" of the toner out of the old cartridge for several more weeks. And DON'T get confused by the paper-is-out condition making that red light STEADY.
The steady lower light indicates the unit needs a new toner cartridge, MLT-D108S. Did you previously see this light blinking or blinking rapidly? (Those indicate the toner being low.) Replace the cartridge and check for any other error lights. Turn off the machine and let it cool. Then open the front cover and pull the old toner cartridge. Open the package with the new cartridge, remove the packing tape and paper that protects the cartridge and gently shake it (avoid touching the blue or green parts of the OPC drum). Press the cartridge into the slot until it is fully seated. Close the front cover.
The green/red blinking power light is not one I'm seen before. The printer indicates a non-toner failure (open cover, no paper, LSU failure, etc.) with a steady red light.
Try this.. 1: Turn off power and remove toner/drum 2: Tape the little spring loaded lever just inside the printer on the upper left hand side in the *DOWN* position! Do not replace drum yet and... 3: Turn power on to printer and let it cycle. Status/Toner lights will come on as usual. 4: Turn off printer, remove tape from lever, replace drum and turn back on.
In this case, actually it is not the Black toner that got depleted.
Here the message being displayed indicate that one of the color Toner supply
need to be replaced as it got depleted and currently the printer is printing in
Black and white using the Black toner cartridge.
in this case, to troubleshoot these issues please try
performing the following and check for the results.
* 1. Check for the level of the toner cartridges:
a) Check from the HP Toolbox application. Here are the steps
to be performed from your PC:
* Access the Toolbox software.
* Select the Status tab.
* Select the Device status option.
Here you can check for the supplies status in terms of the %
remaining for each toner cartridges.
b) By checking the supplies status from the printer control
On the printer display when printer is in Ready mode the
supplies status can be checked from the supplies level indicator. Each toner
cartridge and the Imaging drum level will be indicated by a bar which varies
according to the level of the supplies present.
c) Print the supplies status page from the printer.
* On the printer control panel menu, press Menu .
* Use the (Right Arrow) button
to select Reports, and then press Enter .
* Use the (Right Arrow) button
to select Supplies Status, and then press Enter .
If any of the color toner cartridges and the Imaging drum
have a low supply level replace them with genuine HP print cartridges.
The part numbers of the consumables are as follows:
If the ink light is on steady red, that means the black or color ink cartridge is nearly empty. Obtain a replacement black or color ink cartridge. To know which cartridge is out of ink, check the ink levels using EPSON Status Monitor 3 (Windows) or EPSON Status
Monitor (Macintosh). If you just replaced the cartridges before you got the error light, that means that the replacement cartridge is not recognized by your printer. Please reseat cartridges. Then turn the printer on and off. The cartridges maybe bad also. If the paper light is on steady red, try to reload 10-20 sheets of regular paper into your printer. When printing on CD/DVD, CD/DVD tray is not inserted in the printer. Insert the CD/DVD tray in the printer and press the paper button.Could also be that the printer has loaded more than one sheet of paper at a time. Load paper in the sheet feeder, and then press the paper button to resume printing. If the CD/DVD guide is open, close
the CD/DVD guide, load paper and then press the paper button.
not sure w/ this one, but is it blinking too fast on printer, the check color and black ink cartridges? and if yes what is the color of the light, is it yellow or red, and is the on and off lights, flashing? -black and color blinking fast - install printhead -black and color blinking slow - no cartridges installed -on and off blinking black and color steady lights, calibrate
