When the printer has big green light and a orange light what does this mean?
Do you mean that the orange attention light is lit and the Go button/light is lit? If the attention light is blinking, then the printer is in manual feed mode or out of memory.
Put in the media and press the Go button. To reset the media selection, go to the Printer Properties. When printing from an application, click Print and then Properties. From the Printer control panel (Start > Devices and Printers (on recent Windows versions) or Start > Settings > Printers (on older OS versions - prior to XP).) In either case right click on the printer icon and choose Properties or Printing Properties.
If you have too large a file (too many large images) and are out of memory, stop and cancel this file in the print spooler. Then reprint with a lower resolution. (This is in the Print Quality options. See the above and then the Paper/Quality or Finishing tab) Options will vary depend on the OS. Alternatively, add memory to the printer.
If the Ready light is also lit, the error depends on the pattern. If the lights are blinking in rotation, then the printer is initializing or printing a test page. If the lights are steady, you have a fatal error. Try unplugging the printer for at least 5 minutes (remove all cords from both the wall, computer and printer for the best chance of clearing the error.) If the error persists, the printer needs service. If all of the lights are blinking together, than you have an accessory problem. Try removing the memory. You may be able to reseat the sticks; alternatively replace the memory.
I hope this helps.
