HP Laserjet 1320 Flashing orange light, fails to print on Windows Vista

original title:Flashing orange light, fails to print

HP Laserjet 1320 - two episodes of persistent output of (almost - a few wingdings only) blank paper following a normal print.

I stopped this by output turning off printer.

Now flashing orange light only, won't print at all.

Have tried turning off/on, same with computer and have run check - nil found.

Many thanks.

I went through the troubleshooting routine, could not print, and orange light continued to flash.

Eventally found a paper jam underneath the toner cartridge! All fine now.

Many thanks.
