The flashing amber/blue start button indicates a problem with the built-in HDD.
Try replacing the HDD and let me know if that helps?

You can get a replacement HDD from Amazon.com or a computer store.
Any compatible SATA HDD will do.
Hi, just checking in on your question, do you need any further assistance?
The HDD is mounted on the MFP board (at the back of machine) and is installed in its own metal housing.
You cant really miss it once you take the back covers off you should see it.
The HDD is optional, however if it is installed then the machine will check it upon startup; if it is failed then the machine will not progress any further.
Ok, let me check if the other techs have any further ideas on what might be causing this...
Hi Sam, I have some experience with this issue.
The problem is a bad main board, unfortunately they dont sell the parts needed to fix the board unless you are a certified factory technician for them;-(
Its likley just a bad IC or transistor causing this error condition. But you can have it repaired by just about any local printer copier repair shop for a fair price;-)
I wish I had better news for you, I really do, but I know this one so well. Also thanks for the pic that confirmed my suspicion.
In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.
