Might have a paper jam in area of toner and drum cartridge that may need to be removed. Typically this will solve the issue.

SOURCE: Can't print

Turn the printer power off.
Press and hold the button on the front and turn the power on, do not release
the button until the power is one. Briefly release the button and press it
again, watch the lights cycle. When the Drum light comes on release the button
immediately. This should print a test page. You may have to repeat this until
you get it right. If that works then the printer is OK.

mostly, if the printer is in good condition, this problem could be resolved by resetting the printer and re-installing the driver and its software.

SOURCE: all lights flash, no response when trying to print

It was my roommate's printer and he showed me that I had to hold the button (there's only one) down while turning on the printer and then press the button again. This sometimes causes the printer to print a test page and if left too long or turned off, the procedure needs to be repeated.

SOURCE: Drum, alarm, and data lights on--won't prnt

This unit might need resetting!

Here's how..

There's two ways to reset it

First: Soft Reset
1. Open front cover.
2. Hold down button located under LED's until all LED's are lit.
3. Release button and make sure drum LED is off, then
4. Close cover

Second: Factory Reset
1. Turn the printer off.
2. Hold in the circular button on the front panel of the printer.
3. Turn the printer back on.
4. When the DRUM light is lit by itself let go of the button.
5. Hold in the circular button on the front panel again.
6. Once the Alarm light comes on, let go of the button.
This will perform a factory reset on the printer.

I hope that's everything you want.
Please accept this answer if this will help you.
Thank you for using Fixya.

Drum light on Ready light on Alarm light on Data light on


Alarm and Data lights on together is from low toner. If shaking of the toner cartridge is not helping, change the toner.
Drum light is usually on because of the print counter. If the print quality goes really bad, change the drum and reset the counter by holding the front button wile the front cover is open till all lights come on. Release the button and close the cover.
If just Data light is on, check the print ques, some jobs might got stuck there.

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).
