These printers are FULL of very sensitive sensors, and chances are that one of them may have a small piece of paper blocking them. If you can get the covers off by finding the "Triangle" arrow markers, you can inspect all these sensors.

Good luck!!!

The orange light flashes three times and it cant print and there's no paper jam


Did you remember to open the door for the paper to exit? Otherwise, if there's no paper jam check the paper path for debris; the sensor(s) might be gunked up.

I have a flashing orange light, flashing three times then the power light(green)blinks once, before the three flashes of orange again. I know this indicates a paper jam, but there is no jam. How do I...


You can't reset except by removing paper scraps. Try using an index card and gently push it backwards thru the rollers where the paper comes out to be printed. There are gears on the left side you can rotate to push the card to remove scraps.

Orange lights (3)


Three orange flashes between green indicates a paper jam on this model. Look closely in the paper feed area and the paper exit area for any torn scraps of paper. Also open the top and check in the platen area (where the print head moves back and forth). If you don't see anything, it's possible that a sensor has broken or gone bad.
