RED status light means that there is a possibility that the internal circuit might have got damaged (cracked to be exact). This would require a professional to fix the problem. So, the best thing to do would be to call Borther techsupport because they will instruct you specifically on what to do and what needs to be replaced (also you may need to consult the device's warranty status)

You can install the SOM (Smart Organizing Monitor), it is a utility which can check the status of a printer and set up a printer

What does the red status light mean.


Hi,
Unplug the Printer and again Turn it back ON after few minutes. A Solid Red Light Status means that, more than often it is for Paper Jam.
Let me know, if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

We relocated our Zebra S4M to the new area and it


Have you tried resetting the printserver? I am assuming this is a networked printer when you say the red light on the back. There is a little button on the printserver. Turn printer off, and while pressing that little button in with a paperclip, turn the printer on and continue holding in the button until the light is a solid green. Could take a minute or two depending on the network.

Can't print


Hi bobdoyle - sorry to be slow responding to your above comments, for some reason Fixya didn't notify me of them. The Status Monitor shows you which cartridge is empty - see the manual link above and click on "Replacing an Ink Cartridge". Let me know if you need further help on this.

Paper


I had a similar problem. I noticed that the paper tension on the paper tray wasn't set correctly. Needs to be tight. Once corrected it worked fine.

Status red and amber Toner light


This problem you are getting is to replace the toner cartridge. Have you recently changed the drum unit as well. If so exchange it back to the other one.

After installing new toner or full toner cartridge and removing the yellow plastic cover press the go button this should start the printer on a cycle and add the toner. If this doesn't work then the toner sensor has malfunctioned and will need replacing. This will in turn out way the cost of a new machine.

Hope this helps and not too late for you.

Thanks Jason
