Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question. I think you should first find out whether the error condition on the printer is in the printer itself, or in the computer or in the print job the computer is sending to it.Disconnect the printer from the computer.Turn the printer Off, for at least 10 minutes.Turn it On again, still disconnected from the computer. See if it initializes OK that way... if not, tell me the result and we will continue working on it.

After unplugging the printer and disconnecting it from the computer, I still get and error message but the green paper light is no longer blinking. The Orange lighted Error exclamaion point is stil lit.
