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.
Do you have a new toner cartridge loaded? The red/orange light will blink when toner is low, even if everything else is working fine. Try printing out a test sheet and see what that tells you about your toner level. (Test sheep prints by holding the orange button down a second or two and releasing.)
Since I'm mainly printing drafts for my own use, I've just let the light blink while I eke out whatever I can from the remaining toner (occassionally removing the cartridge and shaking it -- being careful of clothes and surroundings -- to re-distribute the toner on the inside.
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.
This is due to a sensor that reads the actual cartridge is defective not the actual cartridge or the cartridge is one that was refilled and thus not put back togeather the way it should have been. So its ether or a refilled cartridge or a bad sensor. Both req. repair in some sort.

There are a couple of reasons why this happen. A paper jam could have occurred. The cover might be open, try closing the
cover. There might be no paper in the tray, load paper in the tray. The toner cartridge is not installed. The printer has stopped printing due to a major error (you need to contact your manufacture for this).
The green light blinking means that it is accepting or printing data. But, the red light is for the error messages. This blinking means there is a toner problem. 1. remove toner cartridge from printer and gently shake to redistribute any that is left, or 2. You simply have to replace the toner cartridge with a new one - this one has been exhausted.
Maybe the toner is low... According to the manual, a blinking red light:
• 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. See page 8.3. • The toner is totally exhausted. Remove the old toner cartridge and install a new one. See page 8.4. • The toner cartridge reached the end of its life.
I have experienced the same problem . . . a little earlier this evening. I took all the inner components out, took apart the toner cartridge, I thought that the gearing was very hard to turn on it and on the inside of printer, paper feeding etc... and that is wear the loud noise is coming from. Out of desparation, I shook it to hear if anything internally was loose and there was and still is, I would not say its the best solution or by any means a permanent but you may be able to dislodge the debris from the gearing and be able to print. After it was dislodged from my printers gearing it has worked again. Though I believe it's temporary. I am looking for a guide or how-to on opening the printer casing to physically remove the debris. If you know of a guide let me know and I am sure it would help you too.
