I had this problem and tried all the fixes I found on the internet, clearing paper paths, new toner, unplugging, cold resets, etc. Then I unplugged the unit from the power strip and plugged it directly into the wall outlet and the problem was solved.

My printer will not print the orange light keeps flashing what can i do i got a refill cartridge

Hold down the Stop/Reset button for approx 10 to 15 seconds (it has a red triangle stamped on it).
This dis-ables the ink level monitoring and allows you to print.

My printer has an orange light showing next to a symbol which looks like a beaker with a triangle of 6 dots in it. What does this symbol mean? Thanks

It the light is solid then the toner is low. If the light is blinking the toner cartridge is missing and has been removed

Light with the triangle flashing - printer stopped

That means ATTENTION, you are either out of toner or have a paper jam.

Orange light next to triangle symbol is on and flashing and it won't print

Possible paper jamb or open cover.
If you recently "pulled" paper out somewhere, there may be a tiny piece still stuck in the mechanism.
Could be waiting for manual feed or different size paper or envelope. Pressing the "go" button will force it to use loaded paper.
Other issues could also cause this "attention" light.

The light first flashed orange causing printer to pause printing. After restarting the machine and printer several times, it is constantly flashing green. printer did not initiALISE.

The light flashing orange or green could mean a couple of things. First could mean that the paper size that you are using is not the same that you have configured on the printer or the paper size that you have selected on your software is not the same as the one configured in the printer. Also it could be a message of the toner low. You can try resetting he printer to factory defaults. Turn Printer off and open the front cover. Then Press and hold the Button with the Triangle and the Cancel Button the one with the X and turn the printer back on. You will have to keep the buttons pressed until the exclamation light comes up solid then release the two buttons and close the cover. That should reset the printer to factory Defaults.
