Cause: The problem may be with your application, interface cable, or product.
What to do: Confirm the application setting and interface connection, and print out a status sheet. Try to print a status sheet If a blank page is ejected, the problem may be with the product. Turn off the product and contact your dealer.
(1) I'm assuming it will power up, when the printers status light is green press and hold the feed button until the status button flashes once. Once that happens let go of the feed button a configuration label should print.
(2) If that happens then you should check your interface cable, is it fully seated? Depending upon the interface (USB / PARALLEL / SERIAL or ETHERNET) then you may need to check your printer driver settings to see if that looks correct.
Print Cartridge Status
The Print Cartridge Status Light flashes when one
or both of your print cartridges are low on ink,
improperly installed, or malfunctioning. It will
also flash if you are trying to use the wrong print
cartridge type. If the problem is low ink, the light
will stop flashing when you open the top cover.
For any other print cartridge-related problem, the
Print Cartridge Status Light will continue to flash.
To check the status of your print cartridges, open
the printer's top cover. The yellow arrow on the
print cartridge cradle aligns with one of five Print
Cartridge Status icons.
I know this sounds too simple, but get a new USB cord. I had the exact same problem and it was driving me crazy. I followed all the advice about uninstalling, reinstalling and updating multiple times and it never fixed the problem. Finally, my husband made the simple suggestion that maybe it was a problem with the connectivity of the USB cord. I didn't have much faith in it, but I bought a new USB cord and hooked it up - and I have never had a problem with the printer since then. My original USB cord (the one replaced) was the one that came with the Dell printer - perhaps there is a flaw in the cord somewhere. ?
