    hi all

    i have had a hp laserjet 6mp working in the office for years without issue but...

    now it has just stopped and the orange light (the top light of the three on the left hand top) just stays on.

    i have searched for the user manual to find out what the light means - but i cant find it anywhere so does anyone know what it means?

    if i click the round button above it the light next to the "c" (on its side) flash 9 times and then it goes back to the solid orange light.

    any help would be very welcome and happy christmas to you all!

    as ever

    hi

    thanks for the link but i have been through all of these already.

    it seems that hp don't offer the user manual that comes with the printer on-line - the other manuals available don't cover the lights and their meaning (sorry if they do - but i have looked over them and couldn't find it)

    thanks anyway - any one have the manual, or know the meaning of the mystic lights?

    hi

    thanks for that. i read the post and this prompted me to start looking closer and pulling off a few covers. i removed the printer cart and.... there was a jammed piece of paper!

    all fixed now, thanks for the help
