It may be because of the faulty cartridge.or some piece of paper is jammed inside.or due to faulty chip board.
if cartridge is faulty change cartridge.
if paper is jammed remove that piece of paper look care fully.
if nothing solves your problem then this is faulty chip board.do not get it repaired.as it would cost you near to new printer.sorry to say but if chip board error the printer is not more then a scrap.the canon printers have lots of this type of problem.buy hp printers that will never give you this type of problem any time.
rate the solution sir.

Open the printer up and make sure that nothing is jammed inside (lint, fuzz, dustball, paper scrap, etc) in the gear mechanisms - anything like that can trip the warning light that you're seeing. I'm assuming that any paper coming through when it failed, came out intact, but a torn-off corner from an earlier page could have gotten worked around and jammed into the gears. Since you already reset the printer and deleted incoming print jobs, a mechanical jam is the most likely solution.

What this light sequence means that the printer has a paper jam.
When a paper jam occurs, the printer stops and the operator panel's Paper Jam light and Continue button lights come on. Press and release Continue twice quickly to display the specific secondary error paper jam light sequence.
How to clear Paper Jam
?· Press Continue button twice quickly to see the secondary error code.
To get the secondary error codes
?· When the Error light (!) and Continue button lights are both on, a secondary error has occurred.
?· When the Paper Jam light (4th light) and Continue button lights are both on, a paper jam secondary error has occurred.
?· Press and release Continue button twice quickly to display the secondary error code light sequence.
Press Continue button to resume printing once all the jammed pages are cleared from the paper path.
We recommend that you clear the entire paper path when a paper jam occurs.
To clear a paper jam:
1 If you are feeding paper from a tray, remove the tray, and then remove any jams.
2 Open the front cover and remove the print cartridge assembly.
NOTE: Do not leave the print cartridge assembly exposed to direct light for an Extended period of time. Extended light exposure can cause print quality problems.
3 Remove any jams in the area behind the print cartridge assembly.
4 Lift the flap at the front of the printer and remove any jams beneath the flap.
5 Open the rear exit and remove any jams.
6 After you have cleared the jams, reinstall the print cartridge assembly, make sure all printer covers and trays are closed, and then press Continue button to resume printing.
NOTE: The printer reprints the pages that caused the paper jam.

If the printer has been printing continuously for a long time, the Print Head may overheat. To protect the Print Head, the printer may stop printing at a line break for a period of time and then resume printing.
Additionally, if the printer has been printing graphics or photos with intense colors continuously over a period of time, the printer may stop printing to protect the Print Head. In this case, printing will not resume automatically. Turn the printer off for at least 15 minutes.
When the POWER lamp is flashing green, the printer or the computer is processing data. Printing large data such as photos or graphics takes time for the printer and the computer to process, during which the printer may appear to have stopped operating.
In addition, when printing data that uses a large amount of ink continuously on plain paper, the printer may pause temporarily. In either case, wait until the process is complete.
If you are printing a document with a large printing area or printing multiple copies of a document, printing may pause to allow the ink to dry.
