    i have the same problem - if i unplug and plug back in i can get light to clear and maybe then print one page but then happens again. I think i may try a new fuser but at $200 maybe it's time for a new printer? This is approx 4 years old and has printed 16K pages. Do you think that's alot?

    Amber light is lit (not blinking), two green lights are on, but it won't print. Every cartridge inlcuding the imaging drum have been removed to look for a paper jam; no paperjam is found. After replacing the cartridges and closing the lid, the printer goes through its startup. I send a print job, it acts like it will print then it doesn't...the amber light returns. I turned off the printer and restarted and the problem persists.

If you press the orange(big main one) flashing button and it prints 1 page , the you have the paper size set wrong .....check your paper size settings , it comes as default letter , here in the uk we have to get the network guys to change the default to a4 ,

go to hp website and download the manual (the last one in user guide section )
HP PCL/PJL reference (PCL 5 Printer Language) - Technical Quick Reference Guide

It is showing a triangle with excalamtion mark blinking

That would be the attention light.... Indicates that the input tray is empty, the print- cartridge door is open, or bad toner. Is there any lights that are on solid or flashing? (could also have a bad fuser ... need to trouble shoot this a little more)
If you hit the green button does it do anything?

Amber light blinking next to ethernet cable

In most cases an amber lights are usually just connection lights. They let you know the ethernet cable is connected and able to transfer data.
You will want to ensure the printer has a static ip address set in it's configuration, otherwise the ip address will change from time to time causing print issues.

My Cannon i860 is blinking an amber light five times and then returns to green then blinks amber five times and so on. What is this error telling me?

I too went through all the cleaning processes on my i860 with its amber light blinking five times to one of green. After all that time and effort, I ordered a new head, replaced it, put the old ink carts back in, and presto, worked like a charm. Don't waste time and money doing anything else.

Replace ink cart and amber light still blinks

Usually if the Amber light is blinking with a new cartridge, that cartridge has bad electronics.

Try replacing the cartridge with another or the old one, if the light goes out it was just a bad cartridge.

ALERT LED light - Blinking Amber - Nothing prints, printer not recognized

The blinking amber light means there is a hardware problem. Got that from Netgear's website because we have a similar problem here. I don't know if it means hardware problem in the print server or in the printer. We put the print server on a UPS Uninterruptible Power Supply and that problem seems to be gone. We are in an old factory and the wiring is not so reliable. Maybe you could try this same fix.
