OK here are the causes for this led error.

No paper:
Put paper in the paper tray or the MP (Multi-Purpose) tray or the optional lower tray. Then press Go.


Paper jam:

Incorrect Paper size for Duplex:

Press Go or Job Cancel. Set the correct paper that you want to use, or load the same size paper that you selected in the current driver setting. The paper size you can use for automatic duplex printing is A4, Letter or Legal.


Duplex disabled:

Close the back cover of the printer and put the duplex tray back in.
