You might try unplugging the printer from electrical source and try unplugging your data cable from the computer. Shut down your computer and disconnect the data cable. Start your computer and then reconnect the data cable. This is assuming you have a usb data connector.
What you want to do is to try to get the printer back to its default settings. The amber light flashing is trying to tell you something. You should also unload any pending documents to try to get the printer back to its default state, but disconnecting data cables and or power connection is going to be required.
