Solution Follow these instructions to adjust the clutch on the printer. Disconnect the USB cable. Press the printer power button to turn off the printer. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer. Open the top cover of the printer. Remove the print cartridges from the printer. Slide the cradle to the right side of the printer. Locate the clutch on the left side of the printer. NOTE: The clutch is a flat, white, plastic component that rests just above the white roller gear wheel.

What do the battery lights mean on my mouse?
Some keyboard and mouse models feature a battery light that shows the current status of the batteries. The following table describes the different lights and states.
Single long green blink
Batteries are good. This occurs when batteries are first installed or every time that the device is turned on.
Slow green blink
Device is docked in the charging station and is charging properly.
Device is docked in the charging station and does not need additional charging.
Presenter Mouse (Japanese version)
Laser pointer is on.
Device is discoverable (trying to connect to the transceiver).
Slow red blink
Batteries are low and need to be replaced.
Slow red blink
Batteries are low and need recharging.
Fast red blink
Device is docked in the charging station, but there is a charging error. Reasons for errors: The wrong type of battery is installed; the battery or batteries are missing; or the battery connection is bad. Solutions: Make sure that the correct battery or batteries are installed, and are installed correctly. If necessary, remove the batteries, wipe them with a clean cloth, and reinsert them.
Presenter Mouse (Standard version)
Laser pointer is on.
Technical skills required to do this process, remove top,side doors, un lock carriage from service station, remove service station, clean & lubricate it for free movement, fix it back. try for print.. this is only solution for this issue, but mind that its dirty work...
Make sure that when charging the battery pack it must be attached to a
wii-mote otherwise this may cause a flashing red light.
If the battery pack is attached to the wii-mote and you still have a flashing red light this may indicate that there could a problem with the battery pack itself.
The steady lower light indicates the unit needs a new toner cartridge, MLT-D108S. Did you previously see this light blinking or blinking rapidly? (Those indicate the toner being low.) Replace the cartridge and check for any other error lights. Turn off the machine and let it cool. Then open the front cover and pull the old toner cartridge. Open the package with the new cartridge, remove the packing tape and paper that protects the cartridge and gently shake it (avoid touching the blue or green parts of the OPC drum). Press the cartridge into the slot until it is fully seated. Close the front cover.
The green/red blinking power light is not one I'm seen before. The printer indicates a non-toner failure (open cover, no paper, LSU failure, etc.) with a steady red light.
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.
PROBLEM: Paper Jam.
XANTE 1200, Tabloid size, B&W, Printer —Red light blinking fast indicating paper jam upfront.
If you checked everything, trays, ink cartridge etc., and see no paper jam anywhere, take the top cover off and look inside the (head) for the jammed paper!
This printer is problem free. It has given us the best service for many years.
Michael J. Frangos,
The indicator light blinks, it says you're low on ink in one or both cartridges. If you've changed cartridges and it still blinks, you may have stuck or dirty pins in the cartridge station(s). Use a damp, lint free cloth to make sure the pins are clean and move freely
not sure w/ this one, but is it blinking too fast on printer, the check color and black ink cartridges? and if yes what is the color of the light, is it yellow or red, and is the on and off lights, flashing? -black and color blinking fast - install printhead -black and color blinking slow - no cartridges installed -on and off blinking black and color steady lights, calibrate
