Generally if both the (red) alarm LED and the (yellow) data LED are both blinking, it is an indication that the tone cartridge needs to be replaced. You should be close to out of cartridge.

Red alarm light is on


If the Red alarm light is on and the toner light is on means the toner need to be replaced.

If the red alarm and paper light are flashing means misfeeding or no paper, or paperjam.

I have a ML-2510, I turned it on and both the red light and green light flash constantly. Will not feed or print.


The green light blinking means that it is accepting or printing data.
But, the red light is for the error messages. This blinking means there is a toner problem. 1. remove toner cartridge from printer and gently shake to redistribute any that is left, or
2. You simply have to replace the toner cartridge with a new one - this one has been exhausted.

Drum light, alarm light and data light stays on. Does this indicate that the drum and toner need to be replaced?


Yes, drum light means drum is nearly used up, and alarm plus data means the toner is almost gone.

Alarm light is RED and data light is AMBER - both are on permanently


This means toner is empty. This condition was probably preceded by a period of "toner low" indications, data- and alarm LEDs blinking shortly every fifth second or so (maybe you never noticed that). Replace toner cassette and it should work normally.

Printer not working


On this printer, the alarm and data lights mean that the toner cartridge is empty. When you replace the toner, be sure to slide the corona wire cleaner across and back. This is the small light blue plastic piece on top of the drum cartridge. You'll see a small arrow in the plastic. Just slide it back and forth once or twice each time you replace the toner cartridge.

Printer won't print


According to the operation manual: If alarm light and data light blink every 5 seconds- TONER LOW (purchase more toner and have it ready when the 'toner empty' is indicated). If alarm light and data light stay lit- TONER EMPTY (replace toner cartrige with new one).
