Hello. I am pleased to have the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I can solve your problem.

Expert:  Joel Kalman replied 14 days ago.

Does your machine work as a copier? If so, that would rule out any mechanical problems with the sheet feeding mechanism.

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Thank you. My printer is meant to copy as well, but is not functioning. I put through one sheet to be copied, but it emerged blank from the printer.
What does the orange warning light by the on/off switch mean?
Would be grateful for further advice. Sheena Sturrock

Hello Sheena. I apologize or the delay. I have been offline for the last two days

To answer your question, I have checked the manual regarding the lights. The power button lights when the power is on. I do not know the color.

There are four other lights in a line as follows, starting with the light nest to the power button, as follows:

1. Power Light

2. Check Paper Light

3. Check Print Cartridge Light

4a. Pain Paper Type

4b. Photo Paper Type

If the power light is blinking, the printer is busy.

Here is a screen shot of the meaning assigned to the lights:

Dear ***** thank you for your response and for the lights response sheet. I have tried to print this, the print command responded, but the feeder took in two sheets of paper, the dial has shown 'empty' because there were no sheets left. The two bot***** *****ghts are on and blinking. I will read your reply again and try. I may write again later. Am not sure I would follow a phone conversation. Will that cost another £21 on top of the £18 I have already committed? Sheena Sturrock
