All lights on is an incomplete porew on sequence. Check for anything in the way of the carrier, it should move back and forth fairly easily with the power off, check the printwheel to be sure it is properly installed , look at the belt for the carrier to see if it is tracking properly on the pulleys.

A lot of possibilities Which lights, beeps, how many? Check for debris in and around the printwheel, look for any obstructions under the carrier, put a few drops of oil on the silver shaft the carrier ride on.
