orange flashing light- HP Laserjet 1200

My printer which is a HP Laserjet 1200 prints fine, however throughout the day the orange light will flash- what does this mean? At which point if I press it, it will print out something unrelated to me and often several copies of the same item. If i switch the printer off and then on again it is fine again until the orange light starts flahing again. When the oranage light starts flashing it doesn't print any of my documents.

Please help

Many thanks
