Had exact same problem. Scanner light should come on at power up. Found ribbon cable connecting scanner unit to base had come unplugged from socket on circuit board. The ribbon cable is one of three found near back hinge of scanner and is hidden underneath the other two. It should drape over the edge of circuit board and then plug into small recepticle on inner side of board. I plugged it in and printer works again. Hope this helps.

5 flashes amber means the print head is not installed properly (error code 1401) or the EEPROM data of the print head is faulty (error code 1403 or 1405).
Make sure the contacts on the printhead are clean, re-install and try again. If this fails a new printhead may be required. You may be able to re-initialize the EEPROM by entering the service mode.
