    It will print for a while and then "CLICK"...Red light comes on and there is no paper jam. Sometimes it works if I take out everything and open everything and it resets. Sometimes it doesn't.

Try unplugging it and opening every door possible and pulling every toner cylinder. Put the toner cartridges back in and close the doors and plug it in again and see if it works for you like it basically did for me.

I had the same error so I unplugged it and open every door where a paper jam could be. Pulled out every toner cylinder and put them back in. I wiped down where I accidentally spilled some toner (FYI Never pull out the front casing for all the toner without the printer remaining right side up.) I plugged it back in and then got a new error message - that it was out of magenta which I've been expecting for awhile. I replaced it and now it's good to go. Good luck.

    Also I installed the smart panel from samsung and it tells me the problem. I just realized my problem is a full waste container...

    The waste toner container is full or installed incorrectly. replace or
    reseat the waste toner container.


    Turn the printer off, then wait a few minutes
    for the printer to cool.

    Open the front
    cover.

    Pull the waste toner
    container out of the printer using its handle.

    Remove the containers
    cap from the left side of the container as shown below, and use it to close the
    waste toner container opening.

    Open the cap on the
    new waste toner container and attach it to the left side of the container for
    future use, as shown
    below.

    Insert the new
    container into position and then push it to make sure that it is firmly seated
    in place.

    Close the front cover
    firmly.

    Turn the printer
    on.

    Which also explains why I spilled toner everywhere the other day.

Printer blinking red and showing letter E


Error description:

The Attention (red) light is blinking. There are six possible causes that will display the Attention light pattern:

-Paper out
-Door open
-Print cartridge missing
-Paper jam
-Paper sensor jammed
-Duplexer error

Solution :
After the cause of the problem has been addressed, pressing GO will cause the printer to attempt to recover from the cause of the error. If the printer is unsuccessful, it will continue to display the Attention message until the cause is remedied.

Pressing JOB CANCEL will cancel the print job and the printer will return to the Ready state (Ready light on) unless there is a paper jam still in the printer or the print cartridge is not in the printer.

Try this solution: Check for paper jams when the "Error" LED lights red. Open and close the front cover. The paper may automatically be ejected from the printer. Gently pull any remaining jammed paper straight out. Open the front cover. Pull the toner cartridge out. Pull out any internal paper jams.

There are actually some certain meaning on the red light and green light showing different information to user. The summaries are:
1) Green On, Red Off = Printer Ready.
2) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Fast-Flashing = Printer warm up.
3) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Off = Printer off-line.
4) Green Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Processing Data.
5) Green Off, Red On = Cover Opened, Toner Empty or Developer Unit / Drum unit missing.
6) Green Off, Red Fast-Flashing = Paper Jam or waiting for jam reset.
7) Green Off, Red Slow-Flashing = Paper Empty or Paper tray is not inserted.
8) Green Off, Red Off = Printer power is off.
9) Green Very-Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Printer in sleep mode.
10) Green (any condition above), Red Slow-Flashing = Toner low or paper empty.

So what is your printer condition? Better know what is going on your printer so can solve the problem.
