Red lite on printer-won't print

The red light on this printer would normally indicate paper jam, a cover open or the waste toner container is full. I would recommend double checking that no small bits of paper have got themselves lodged around rollers inside the printer. Failing this I would check the status of the waste toner bottle to see how full the printer thinks it is.
This can normally be done using the printers software on the PC, but sadly I am unfamiliar with doing it for your particular machine.

Phaser 8400 won't print.

pull out the paper drawer and look on the ceiling of the compartment. you will see a little orange rubber roller that should be clicked inplace. it feeds the paper up into the roller. also, the drawer itself contains two sensors. if you go to the xerox page you can download the pdf that lists all the parts and the errors and how to disassemble the whole thing. i have the same printer and got a print head error and a paper jam that required complete disassembly. feel free to email me for additional help.

then you have some buried deep inside..turn light off in office, close door, and use a flashlight or penlight..paper will glow from light..that will help a bit..then long tweezers to extract the fragments, eh?

pull out the cartridge and look for paper inside, re-install cartridge, also look on the back part where the fuser and exit assembly is look for paper jammed. also make sure the paper is set correctly on the tray.

The red attention indicator light and the toner indicator light are both flashing together

ON your driver check that the paper size is correct and this most commonly occurs when the incorrect paper size is selected. For example if you are printing to A4 and you have letter size installed in the machine then the system will cause an error or jam when there is nothing there.

Also within word or which ever program you are using on the document goto file and then down to page setup once in there check the paper size make sure it's correct for the paper in your machine also check the paper source. Once you have done this check the paper tray guides are correctly against the paper turn on and try printing and hopefully this will work.

Thanks J
