This usually means there is a paper jam of some sort. I would triple check to make sure no pieces of ripped paper are stuck in the rollers or are visible.after doing this, shut the pc down and the printer as well wait a few minutes start the printer and then the pc. if the lights are still on, verify that one of the ink cartridges had not become loose. this also happens when you forcefully move the printer head back. good luck

Why is alarm light flashing? 5800


The ink absorber is full,The waste ink error is based upon time instead of actual volume in the tank. You can reset the counter by the instructions below.
Waste Ink Counter Reset.
(1) Turn off the printer.
(2) Press and hold the STOP/RESET button, then press and hold the POWER button.
(3) Release the STOP/RESET button, Next press and release the STOP/RESET button two(2) more times in
succession. Note: you are still holding the POWER button). The printer's carriage will "reset"
or move momentarily. If the above was properly performed the printer will enter the
"Service Mode".
(4) Press the STOP/RESET button 4 times, this will select the clear waste ink counter function. The lamp
will alternate (change) color with each key press.
1. Service/Factory test printout, including ink sensor check.
2. EEPROM - Info printout.

4. Reset the Waste ink counter.

After selecting the desired mode (eg 4), press the POWER button to "set" the change, and return to the top of the function selection menu. Press the POWER button again to restart the printer.

You’ll need to reset your printer to clear the ink counters, after resetting it’ll not display the error code again. Follow this procedure to reset the printer--

1. Power off the printer.
2. Holding the stop/reset button, press and hold power button also. Hold both buttons together for 5 secs.
3. Still holding the power button, release the stop/reset buton, then press the stop/reset button twice.
4. Release power button (the screen should now say 'Service Mode').
5. Wait until the power button lights steady green, then press the stop/reset button three times with a 3 sec space between each press. On the 3rd press the indicator should turn steady orange.
