As the first step, please remove the power to the printer by disconnecting it from the power plug
Wait 10 minutes
Then connect it again to power and tell me if it now turns on and functions please.

Ten minutes gone - short time of green light flashing but then it has returned to alternating green and amber.
ThanksIt is the internal mainboard that has faulted.A corrupted firmware can cause this. But we have ruled this out by trying to hard reset it. I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the printer to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you. I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know. And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
