It appears that the waste ink absorber of the unit is already full. youll have to consult an authorized service center to have it reset and replace the waste ink absorber.

2) Turn on the printer while pressing the control panel button. The Drum LED comes ON.
3) Lightly press the panel button again.
Alarm LED is ON = Front registration sensor is turned ON.

The alarm button keeps blinking. How do I get it to stop?


Well I'm sure that the alarm button is blinking for a reason. I beleive that printer is a laser so unless you dont have paper in it :)
You most likely are low on toner or need to change the drum.

Alarm lights keep blinking after I changed my printer ink.


E5 means cartridges error - to fix press the "stop\reset" button for 5-7 seconds and then release it.

You can also try this:

1) With the printer power turned off but connected to a power source, while pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press and hold the Power button.
(DO NOT release the buttons. The Power LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (DO NOT release the Power button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button 2 times, and then release both the Power and
Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and Power LEDs light
alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.)

4) When the Power LED lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the specified number of time(s)according to the function listed in the table below. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and
Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.)

4 times----Green (Power)------Waste ink counter resetting

E3 says there is a paper jam somewhere, could be a small scrap, or even a bent or broken sensor lever. Just have to inspect inside carefully.

It is one of two things.

a bad ink cartridge (the chip located on the gold part of it)
or
bad USB cable.

IF you have a spare cable simply change them out.

If you are refilling your cartridges, it is time to replace them.
