This problem relates to the Main Motor Drive on the printer.
The L4 error details that the Motor Drive has been Overloaded.
Try disconnecting the power and blowing it out with air-cleaner

L4 indication

The L4 code is referring to the scanner motor return. I have seen this many times in the field. The likelihood is that the scanner motor is faulty and could need replacing. Has the copier been moved recently? If so, the motor or the scanner optical unit may have been damaged in the process.

See articles here and here to troubleshoot this problem...(possible also here)
If that doesn't yield results, reset the printer by following instructions here and/or here.
It may be necessary to reinstall the print drivers and software in this case...see here and here for examples...
