    The light indicates the printer is busy. Try to disconnect the printer from the network or computer. Are you able to print the menu settings? If it prints, then most probably it's a software issue.

    I haven't connected the printer to anything yet as I wasn't sure if it was faulty.

Blinking status light means the printer is busy. If it's not doing anything else, disconnect the printer from the computer. Restart the printer and then print a menu settings page. Clear the print queue on your computer before re-attaching the printer. Thanks.
