It appears that this is an overseas model (at least for those here in the US that is) as far as I can tell. This will use the same drivers as the CX3600 model though. Depending on how long you have had this and how often you use it, you may have a waste ink reset situation. While I have not had any personal experience with this model, there are several references on the internet on how to do a reset. There is even an "SSC Service Utility" you can search for that lists this printer as being supported. It cannot reset the ink counters but it may reset the waste.
Good luck, I hope this is of some help.

Dell printers are the worst I have worked with, this problem may be a 'paper jam' when there is no paper jam at all (or one REALLY stuck on the fuser). Check on the back of the printer for a piece of paper jammed on a sensor.

If the two lights are blinking persistently and the carriage is moving freely when the cover is opened then the logic board has problem and should be replaced. However, if there is some restriction of carriage movement or cracking noise, the optical cable should be replaced. Good luck
