It keeps blinking because there is a paper jam. Open the front cover and take out the toner/drum and see any jammed paper. Also, you can open the back cover, pull the paper guide down to see the rollers.

If the above does not work, take off the front cover. Pull the tabs on the side. Pull out the toner/cartridge. Look for a blue tab on the top, and you need to slide that from right to left. Put everything back and see if this solves the problem.

Hi,

The unit may have a paper jam or stuck object inside, if you have experience a paper jam error before, check the printer for any object or paper stuck inside, clean roller.

Some error like this can be a problem on the feeder sensor and by this time you may need to replace and repair the unit.

Hope this initial info helps

My error light keeps blinking but I have no idea whats causing it - last time it was a paper jam, which I fixed easily enough, but now I've no idea what to do


turn on/off, unplug, plug in, should reset configs.

take all the paper out, put half as much back in.
check the rollers to make sure no paper or particles are stuck preventing from accepting paper.

go to applications folder for your computer, dbl click printer icon for make of printer. check settings. print 'test document and clean cartridge heads', this should ensure proper printing formats.

lastly, go to web site of printer model and check site for trouble shooting if this does not work above.
hope this helps and good luck

My printer c5280 keeps saying please reinsert or lower photo tray


If it is asking for photo paper you should be able to hit ok on the screen and then it should go to the default screen and be ready to print.
