Default Issue with an old Star LC-10 dot matrix printer

Hi everyone,

I have an old Star LC-10 printer I'd like to use with my equally old Amiga 500. It was a workhorse printer for me back in the day. This particular unit I haven't powered on before. When I do apply power, the print head moves a few inches to the right and returns and then the printer makes a loud beep. The power light flashes rapidly orange continuously. If I switch the printer off and advance the head all the way to the right, it will return to the start position when powered on but the fault repeats.
I doubt it's been used in a long while but I did fit a new ribbon.

any help would be appreciated!
