Laserwriter Status Lights

(1) Ready    Steady = ready to print
Green        Off= Cannot print due to error or cover is open
             Flashing= Warming up or processing a print job

(2) Toner    Steady= Low toner
Orange       Off=Toner OK
             Flashing= Toner cartridge incorrectly installed

(3) Paper    Steady= Paper cassette empty
Red          Off= Paper supply OK
             Flashing= Ready for next sheet for manual feed OR
             Printer requires service

(4) Jam      Steady= There is a paper jam
Red          Off= paper path is OK
             Flashing= Printer requires service

When lights #3 and 4 are either flashing or steady, the printer requires service.

My experience with light #4 flashing is the printer is not properly connected (usually when connected to a PC). I would also check the fusing unit..is it hot, or as there anything stuck between the fusing rollers? Are any of the corona wires broken? If the fusing unit looks OK, then check/replace the ozone cartridge if it has one.  

The previous answer about the HP web site relates to the fact that both HP and Apple used the same Canon SX engine in their printers or this era.  

There is also good technical information to be found at:
www.laserwizard.com
www.printerworks.com
www.printworx.com

Hope this helps...
