you did not tell us which light is flashing. If it is the On/Off light then according to the manual it is a very generic error code.

"Flashing Red

The printer has detected an error condition that needs your attention.

Please check for other lights and follow the instruction for that light.Check the status monitor (Windows) on your computer for a message."

So it is important to determine id you did anything prior to this i.e. change in printer cartridge etc. I'd start by checking the cartridges by reseating those.

1) Turn on the printer; take out the old used cartridges

2) Turn off the printer for a few minutes and disconnect the power cord

3) Connect the power cord and turn the printer on, when it says "insert inks", and then insert the compatible cartridges one by one, making sure the cartridges are sitting completely in the slots.
