ALARM Lamp Flashes Orange 
When a printer error occurs, the ALARM lamp flashes orange as shown below. The number of 
flashes indicates the type of error that has occurred. Count the flashes and take the appropriate 
action to correct the error.

reload paper properly in the printer, and then press the RESUME/CANCEL 
button. See “Paper Jams” on page 72.
Four Flashes: Ink tank is not installed 
properly. / Ink may have run out.

If the lamp on the ink tank is flashing, ink may have run out.
Replacing the ink tank is recommended.
If printing is in progress and you want to continue printing, press the 
RESUME/CANCEL button with the ink tank installed. Then printing can 
continue. Replacing the ink tank is recommended after the printing. The 
printer may be damaged if printing is continued under the ink out condition.
