    Will sometimes print 1 page then I get the red paper light. If I leave machine off for awhile and then restart it, it will let me print 1 more page - sometimes.

My sp210 ricoh printer is blinking red lite of middle one marked (!) and not excepting the print command what to do

It means, there is a paper jam. Delete the print jobs in the computer's print queue or disconnect the communication cable (USB or LAN). This is to stop the printer trying to execute print commands. Turn off the printer. Pull the paper drawer and check for a stuck sheet. Remove carefully if any. Open front and rear covers, pull out the toner cartridge and inspect for stuck paper in the paper path. Remove if any. Close the covers, put back the paper drawer and turn on the printer. See if the red light is gone. If not, there still may be some piece of paper or misplaced/broken sensor. If looks normal, reconnect the cable/try printing again and listen if the printer tries to pick up paper. If yes, but red light comes again, then the pick-up roller needs cleaning/replacing. If not, check if the paper size in your document matches the one loaded and set up in the printer. The printer may be waiting for different paper size.

Phaser 8400 won't print.

pull out the paper drawer and look on the ceiling of the compartment. you will see a little orange rubber roller that should be clicked inplace. it feeds the paper up into the roller. also, the drawer itself contains two sensors. if you go to the xerox page you can download the pdf that lists all the parts and the errors and how to disassemble the whole thing. i have the same printer and got a print head error and a paper jam that required complete disassembly. feel free to email me for additional help.

Paper

then you have some buried deep inside..turn light off in office, close door, and use a flashlight or penlight..paper will glow from light..that will help a bit..then long tweezers to extract the fragments, eh?

The red attention indicator light and the toner indicator light are both flashing together

ON your driver check that the paper size is correct and this most commonly occurs when the incorrect paper size is selected. For example if you are printing to A4 and you have letter size installed in the machine then the system will cause an error or jam when there is nothing there.

Also within word or which ever program you are using on the document goto file and then down to page setup once in there check the paper size make sure it's correct for the paper in your machine also check the paper source. Once you have done this check the paper tray guides are correctly against the paper turn on and try printing and hopefully this will work.

Thanks J
