Customer Question

I have a Brother printer HL 1440 series and the Ready and Alarm lights are blinking and thus it won't print. I followed old instructions that said it was paper jam. My husband had pulled out a ripped sheet, so it is now cleared. We re-loaded the paper, still will not print.
I tried turning it off, holding down the round button, releasing it when the Drum light came on, Pressing the front panel button again until the Drum light came on. It sounded like it was going to print and the Data light came on, then it flashed back to The Ready and Alarm lights. Any ideas on what I need to do to get it to print again, Peggy

Are they solid, or blin*****, *****e time or alternate, what color, etc?
