Flashing red light

The start light on my lp2844 is flashing - 4 short red, l long red to orange. I have tried turning on and off, holding the ready button down, replacing the paper roll -- I want to solve this before I start the long label run I have to do, and , of course, we are already way over deadline!

Hi Quadralady,
I found these possibilities listed in the manual:

1. Perform media length sensing.
2. Possible problem with label stock. Use only approved
labels and tags.
3. Possible label jam.
4. Insufficient memory for label size. Check the printer
memory configuration.
5. Possible software problem. Refer to the programming
manual.

Kyocera fS-920KX. Not printing


There are actually some certain meaning on the red light and green light showing different information to user. The summaries are:
1) Green On, Red Off = Printer Ready.
2) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Fast-Flashing = Printer warm up.
3) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Off = Printer off-line.
4) Green Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Processing Data.
5) Green Off, Red On = Cover Opened, Toner Empty or Developer Unit / Drum unit missing.
6) Green Off, Red Fast-Flashing = Paper Jam or waiting for jam reset.
7) Green Off, Red Slow-Flashing = Paper Empty or Paper tray is not inserted.
8) Green Off, Red Off = Printer power is off.
9) Green Very-Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Printer in sleep mode.
10) Green (any condition above), Red Slow-Flashing = Toner low or paper empty.

So what is your printer condition? Better know what is going on your printer so can solve the problem
