Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Expert:  Russell H. replied 4 months ago.

Which error light came on, please, or is there only one on your printer model?

And, is that light On steadily, or is it flashing On and Off?

And does any other error code show on the printer?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
My printer has 3 different lights. One indicating the power is on, the center one flashing to show an error and the third shows it is available for wifi. It is flashing.
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Can you take me through the process to repair it?
Expert:  Russell H. replied 4 months ago.

Thanks for the response. I am preparing instructions...

Expert:  Russell H. replied 4 months ago.

How many times is the yellow light flashing? it might flash three times, then pause, then three times again. How many times is it flashing before each pause, please?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.

OK! open the printer to look at the cartridges. Are any lights flashing on the cartridges? if so, that cartridge needs replacing with one exactly like it.

And/or, you might doubtfully have a cartridge that came loose - but this is not likely if you have been using your printer just fine for awhile. In that case, an ink cartridge has run out, almost certainly.
