Re: Blinking Red ! lite

Good news solution: your toner cartridge is empty beyond any more shaking.

Bad news solution: if the toner is new AND original, the blinking light means bad fuser. It needs replacement at any Authorized Service Center.

Hi there,

A red blinking light on a samsung printer will often indicate that your toner level is low. It will still continue to work until the toner fully runs out. This is Samsung's warning saying that you should think about changing your cartridge soon. I hope this helps.

Om line error red light is on

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.

The orange light is blinking. Above the light is a triange with an exclamation point in it. I have tried deleting and reloading the printer and that doesnt work.

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 top light of the two is flashing green/red back and forth very fast and the light on the bottom is a solid red. how do I fix this so that way it will work normally

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.

ML-2510 Laser Printer : persistent blinking red light


This problem you will be noticed when toner is 90% empty.
Does the printer is functioning or No. If yes the problem is 90% toner is finished.[10% toner remaining alert]
If printer is not functioning Please change the toner from Genuine dealer. Else your printer fails due to non genuine and refilled toner.

I have a ML-2510, I turned it on and both the red light and green light flash constantly. Will not feed or print.

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
• 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
• The toner cartridge reached the
end of its life.

no, I have paper....the red-light on the top keeps blinking.....

I have used akums-razor to determine the answer.....

sol: push and hold down the orange button for 3-4 secs and wait for a print-out. It will give you the staus of the toner cartdg. MINE REPORTS A LOWWWW LEVEL. ( the orig. cartridge gives the user only about 1000 sheets and mine is around 783. This is why I think the light came on to tell me to jump in my Lexus, get down to Best Buy, and get another ( more capacity) new cartridge....
cool, huh?:>))))
