Try to reset the printer:

- Machine off
- Front cover OPEN
- Switch on the machine while holding down the “GO” button
- Check that the TONER/DRUM/PAPER leds are lighted
- Release the “GO” button and check that all the leds are off
- Press the “GO” button 2 times
- Close the FRONTCOVER
In case of all the leds are flashing on/off, that means the printer hardware fails somewhere. To find out what section fails, you can press down the “go” button and a led will go on.

Toner >> FUSER FAIL
Drum >> LASER UNIT FAIL
Toner + Paper >> MAIN MOTOR FAIL
Paper >> MAIN CONTROLLER BOARD FAIL

If you cannot determine wich led goes on,it seems that the main board is broken.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
