Depending on the particular light in question, the printer may have a jam, or some eroneous error.. Please refer to the documentation for your printer. I have linked it at the end of the post.

Printer will not communicate with computer. tried unplugging it also unplugged computer and tried restarting. Green light blinking and alternating betwee 1,C,E. Amber light blinking at bottom left

The error indicates a communication failure between one of the cartridges and the printer. Try to check which cartridge is causing the error by inserting one cartridge at a time. Replace the cartridge(s) causing the error. If error continues, you can also contact Lexmark technical support to further investigate the problem. Thanks.

Computer sends to printer but printer does not pick up the print

Please see your manual for the meanings of the green and red printer lights, and how to load paper and change ink cartridges. If you do not have a copy, you may download it from here:

There is also a self-help troubleshooting guide there which is very useful.

The blinking red light means you have a cartridge which needs replacing. Right click the little printer icon in the bottom left corner of the screen and select printer settings, then maintenance then replace cartridge.

Possible software problem?

I don't remember a little camera light on the control panel of my 6110 (though there is a little telephone light on the left side that usually indicates the fax/modem line is in use), but it sounds more like an electrical fault. I suppose you could try to replace the power cord and power supply, but my guess is that the fault is intermal. You're most likely looking at taking the printer in for service. Good luck.

This usually means something is wrong with the graphics scaler. You'll eventually have to send your xbox in to have it fixed, and I believe it is covered under a one year warrenty.
