    I have tried all three solutions and the error light remains lit. I cannot see any paper that might be causing the issue.

Pull out the toner cartridge. Carefully put your fingers into the opening just beyond the chrome roller. A little to the left of center you will fell/see a small black plastic finger which sticks up. It should be loose - push it forward and it springs forward, release it and it returns to the original position. If your paper jam catches this finger it can become jammed and will feel rigid. Put light pressure on it either pushing to the back or pulling forward until it becomes free again. Replace the toner cartridge, close the cover and your red light should go out.

It worked for me - hope it helps someone else.

There could be three possible problems.

1. Is there paper in the paper tray? If yes then move to step 2.
2. Did u try the above solution and still have the red light? move to step 3
3. The Toner Cartridge is NOT fixed right. You have to take out the toner cartridge and push it in till it CLICKS. It has to make a distinct clicking sound. Turn on the printer again and voila u r good to go.

Had same issue and then tried the following for fun. In my case, the problems started after a jam. - Turn off printer - Press the CANCEL button and hold - Turn on power with CANCEL button help down until the printer lights start to flash. Hold for another 5-10 seconds - Let go of the CANCEL button - Power printer off and on again Worked for me but I'm not sure why. Perhaps the above process resets something. Strange though because you'd think unplugging the printer would have 'cleaned out' any leftover errors from a previous print. Wayne

Red light


Error Red On

• The cover is open. Close the cover.
• There is no paper in the tray. Load paper in the tray.
• The printer has stopped printing due to a major error.
• The toner cartridge is not installed. Install the toner cartridge.
• Your system has some problems. If this problem occurs, contact your service representative.
• The toner is totally exhausted. Remove the old toner cartridge and install a new one.

Error Red Blinking

• A minor error is occurring and the printer is waiting for the error to be cleared. When the problem is cleared, the printer resumes printing.
• The toner cartridge is low. Order a new toner cartridge. You can temporarily improve print quality by redistributing the toner.

Online/error showing red light, could it be a toner problem ?


it could well be a toner out problem, put paper in the tray and press the button for a second or two, if the light starts flashing and the printer prints a configuration page then its a certainty, also the config page will tell you if the toner is out

Samsung ML-1710 Printer: Online/Error (red) lite ON: won't print


It is not a computer problem, when your printer won't come to ready. The lights flashing are due to a failure of some sort - electronic, or perhaps a fuser warm up problem. The fact is, whatever the fault, it is cheaper to replace this printer than have it repaired.

Mine did the same thing, turned out to be an empty toner cartridge. The one that comes with the printer when you buy it only prints about 50 sheets before it dies.
