The orange light located above the green light keeps blinking. There aren't any paper jams or anything like that
Orange light blinks. No paper jam. Usually I hear the printer go on when I turn the unit on the cartridges rotate, now nothing happens at all.

SERVICE MODE This printer has a service mode for service-related settings and for performing test prints. The operator panel buttons are used to enter the desired service mode.
Service Mode Operations 1. With the printer powered off, hold down the Resume/Cancel button and press the Power button. 2. While holding down the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button and press the Resume/Cancel button twice in succession. Now release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. 3. Select one of the following service mode functions by pressing the Resume/Cancel button the specified number of times.
Count Indicator Functions • 0 times Green Print head not installed, carriage returns and locks in home position • 1 time Orange Service test print • 2 times Green EEPROM information print • 3 times Orange EEPROM initialization • 4 times Green Waste ink counter setting • 5 times Orange Destination setting • 6 times Green Print head deep cleaning • 7 times Orange LF correction • 14 times Green Left margin correction
Execute the selected function (except for model setting) by pressing the Power button. The printer will switch itself off after performing the function.
Double check all doors/ rollers for small pieces of paper stuck in the rollers. Sometimes just opening the door in question and closing will reset the paper jam sensors. Paper jams can be smaller than your pinky finger nail. So double check,
Usually means theres a paper jam or your out of paper or some problem is occurring. While that blinking orange is blinking press and hold it for about 5 seconds the printer should stop blinking orange and continue with the print. Also open up your printer to see if there are any documents that are in the print queue. Probably can delete those. Thats my guess as to whats wrong with the printer. Used to have one of those. Nice little printer remember 12 blacks for 12 bucks.
There are actually some certain meaning on the red light and green light showing different information to user. The summaries are: 1) Green On, Red Off = Printer Ready. 2) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Fast-Flashing = Printer warm up. 3) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Off = Printer off-line. 4) Green Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Processing Data. 5) Green Off, Red On = Cover Opened, Toner Empty or Developer Unit / Drum unit missing. 6) Green Off, Red Fast-Flashing = Paper Jam or waiting for jam reset. 7) Green Off, Red Slow-Flashing = Paper Empty or Paper tray is not inserted. 8) Green Off, Red Off = Printer power is off. 9) Green Very-Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Printer in sleep mode. 10) Green (any condition above), Red Slow-Flashing = Toner low or paper empty.
So what is your printer condition? Better know what is going on your printer so can solve the problem.
