This is how you do it – Brother’s blinking lights on display is the best troubleshooting tool EVER.

Brother gets the all-star five stars for a creative approach to tech support by making animated versions of blinking printer LEDs and putting a large grid of them online – so – if you wonder what the blinking means, simply select the picture that matches your printer’s blinking lights.

faqimage_53_1Here’s the one for the HL-2270-DW laser printer: http://support.brother.com/g/b/imglist.aspx?c=us&lang=en&prod=hl2270dw_all&ptn=2

All products with complicated (as in, more than one) LED blinking error indicators should be supported like this.
