From the manual: All lights flashing simultaneously on the panel designates a printer service error as a primary code. Double press CONTINUE to see the secondary codes; double press CONTINUE again to see the tertiary codes; double press CONTINUE the third time to return to the primary code.

To get started, here are the secondary codes:

Ready/Data blinking=Software error
Ready/Data+Press Continue=DC (main drive) motor error
Ready/Data+Error=Fuser/toner sensor error
Ready/Data+Error+Press continue=Printhead/transport motor error
Ready/Data+PaperJam+Press continue=NVRAM/ROM/NAND Error
Ready/Data+PaperJam+Error=RAM Memory error
Ready/Data+PaperJam+Error+Press continue=Network error
Ready/Data+Load/RemovePaper=Paper Port communication error

You'll probably need a new formatter board (RIP board in Lexmark's nomenclature). Does yours have a builtin network capability? If so, try using it with a parallel or USB connection (no network connection) to gauge any change/improvement. Official title for the secondary code - Ready/Data light flashing, followed by the tertiary code - Toner Low flashing (the only tertiary code for this error) is "RIP Software error/illegal trap." Do you have any warranty service left on this machine? If not:

Part number for RIP card - 56P0617
Part number for network RIP card - 56P0619

It does not have the builtin network capability. It's showing the tertiary code exact as what you discribed. I think I need a new formatter board. This printer doesn't have any warranty left even it's only printed 2000 pages. I do appreciate your help. Thanks.
