Lexmark Printer Problems

My printer Z12 Color Jetprinter is printing triple letters (printing on top of each other). Not sure why?
50
I have a Lexmark X5150. It does not complete any print job past one page. A window will pop up afer one page and say Cartride Stall. Then on the printer itsself it says Hardware Error: 0502.
I just put a new black cartride in it and a new color cartride in it.
Help. I can't afford to buy another printer.
Thanks. Mary

Hi,

I have a Lexmarx x2230 (all-in-one)but cannot print the euro symbol. It appears OK in the word document. I am using windows 98. - Anonymous
I am having the same problem. It is driving me crazy. - Anonymous
I have a Dell AIO A960 that stated the same thing. It's been doing it for a several weeks. I called Dell and they said my printer was out of warranty and I would have to buy a new one. Ha! I asked exactly what the code described and they told me it had to do with the print head encoder strip and that the controller chip was probably bad. I looked at the almost clear plastic strip that threads through the print head and goes from one end to the other of the print head mechanism's frame. I wipped it with a micro fiber cloth, carefully moving the print head back and forth out of my way. It seems to have cured my problem and shows exactly how much the techs from another hemisphere know. I suggest using your index and middle finger tips to gently squweeze the cloth over the strip. Try not to flex it or twist it too much. Good luck! - Anonymous
I have a 5150 lexmark and the exact same thing with the error has happened to me. I was wondering how to fix it! - Anonymous
I had this exact problem. Spent time with the Lexmark tech staff who finally told me to take it to a service center. Got a clue from a web site and just cleaned the ink carriage guide bar and lubed it slightly with WD40. Works like a champ. Hope it helps.

I get the same problem Error 0502 and a message on the screen saying cartridge stall. I was on their website and found somthing about the ribbon tape that hooks in behind the cartridges. It said to try to reposition it, but I am still having the same problem.

The encoder strip is most likely the problem. Unplug the power from the printer. Open the front cover and move the cartridge carrier to the center. You should see a white ribbon cable, a thin plastic strip and a black belt with teeth.

The thin plastic strip is the encoder strip. It rides in a sensor on the back of the cartridge carrier that you will not be able to see. Reach in with the first finger of either hand and carefully strum the strip as if playing a guitar.

The strip will need to be lowered slightly and brought towards you slightly. Please be careful not to break the strip or your printer will not function. Once you believe the strip is set correctly, plug the power back and try printing the self test.

To self-test the printer, please follow the steps given below:

If it slams to the left again, the strip is not yet set correctly. - Anonymous
i am gettting a hardware error 0502. I have been getting this error off and on since i replaced the ink cartridge a while back. it is doing ti all the time now. i can power off and back on and it sometimes will print. other times it prints a quarter of the page and then does this. my printer is not even one year old and i paid alot for it. - Anonymous
This is very old, but I came across this user's message when looking for a solution for another problem I'm having with the same printer.

You need to lube the chrome rods that the printer heads ride upon. I used a very light oil and it has worked flawlessly since. - Anonymous
Had the exact same problem. I had to clean off the metal or plastic strip as it was gunkeD-up with printer in. the metal or plastic strip is directly below in cairrage. turn lexmark off, lift up like you are changing ink cartridges and there is a strip or bar that runs the lengeth of the inside and take a damp cloth and clean the gunked up ink off. dry it off with a cloth and you should be back in business....hopes this helped - Anonymous
On the multi function machine seems to be a coating on the metal rod that the cartridges travel on. Just wipe this rod with a kleenex and the problem seems to go away. Somehow it presents a drag on the cartridges and causes an error. (got it from a blog site).
good luck

Sorry can't help, but I have the same printer and the same problem error has just come up. I have just replaced a colour cartridge though, so maybe it's linked to that? - Anonymous
I have the same problem the printer prints one page, says in status box printing 99\% (the page is done) and I have to reboot to clear the printer task bar. (Canceling printjob doesn't help)This is a shared printer in Win XP Pro. But USB attached to the printing PC. This started after I installed a new black cartrage. - Anonymous
does anybody know where i can get the power supply for my x5150 - Anonymous
From Lexmark support page....

Hardware Error 0502 on LCD Display ID:ENUS16536

Check the encoder strip on the printer. (This is a clear strip running the length of the printer, above or behind the cartridge carrier.) Do the following:

1. Switch off the printer using the power button.
2. Disconnect the power cable from the back of the Lexmark X5100 / X6100 Series.
3. Leave the power cable disconnected for 30 seconds.
4. Slide the cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer by taking the top part of the belt and moving it gently to the right.
5. Take out both cartridges.
6. Place an index finger on the encoder strip on either side of the cartridge carrier.
7. On the back of the cartridge carrier, there is a small slot that the encoder strip fits into. Slightly push the encoder strip down and then back up to get it into the slot.
8. Lightly press the strip first to the rear and then forward, if necessary.
9. Clean the encoder strip with a dry tissue. Also clean the contacts of the printer.
10. Reconnect the power cable and switch the printer on again.
11. Perform the hardware test without cartridges first and then with both cartridges.*
12. Make a standalone copy.
13. If the copy is satisfactory, repeat the test once to confirm that the error is gone. - Willem
I'm having the exact same problem and have absolutely no idea what else to do. I did exactly what you did. If anyone tells you how to fix it and it works - PLEASE let me know too. I would greatly appreciate it as I can't afford a new printer either. - Anonymous
i have the same problem, i want to know if you fix that problem, and if is possible give me by email how you did it, thank. - Anonymous

OK try clicking on your printer icon on task bar or go to printer in control panel! Firstly check to make sure that you have no other printing ready to go! If you have remove everything in this box and do the printing again? Try this first! - Anonymous

Hi, Rachel - I have the same problem. In inserted a new black cartridge and took the color out and shook it and returned it. When I closed the door, the cartridge carrier pulled the cartridge hard from the left to the right. The power light blinks constantly, and I cannot turn it off at the power light. Were you able to fix yours?
Thanks - Anne - Anonymous
I have a Lexmark 73, I continue to loose the printer when I go to print, I'm not sure what is causing it. I uninstall and reinstall only to have problems when I try to Add Printer under add printer and I cannot find this one. Which one of these disk will have the printer driver on it. Lexmark x73 Installation Software #1 or Installation Software #2 2001. Is there an upgrade to this? This is really frustrating.

I have a lexmark x-75, and the cartridges fail to stop in the center, but slam against the left side and stay there. I'm told that this problem relates to the clear tape, the "alignment strip". There apears to be an optical reader behind the cartridge carrier. Is the clear strip supposed to be up in the cartridge carrier, or does it simply float behind it? (where it is now). Is there a schematic? How do you get the strip back where it's supposed to be?? Thanks.

I had the same problem. Tried everything. One thing worked. Turn off the printer and the
computer. Let set for awhile and then turn back on. I worked on it for 2 1/2 hours without
fixing the problem and then rebooted and it took care of it.

I have same problems.I checked inks and when new one was in thats what it does. Am looking for cure. Will notify. - sailor
You catridges slide of a rod pull by a belt. It has slipped on the belt. Take side cover off. move inks to left. unscrew the screw in bracket slacken belt bring inks almost back full to right before tightening screw back sometimes need to push bracket with wheel in a little to left so as to position carrier as may be tight. what has happened is the carrier has slipped on belt. make sure belt is tight and retighten screw. turn printer on and it will reset. I had same problem and it has cured it.

There is alittle clear strip that runs across the inside of the printer above the pully
strum that gently like a guitar pulling it up and towards you. It has to make contact with the back of the printer

On your install, did the system install the USB driver for the Lexmark? If it didn't, you will not be able to see the printer until it does. The USB driver is available on the Lexmark site. I have run into this many times with Lexmark, the driver disk sometimes forgets the USB driver.

RE: so did you check the page that gives you all the different printing finnishes? if not i would suggest you do to make sure the box for Black $ White printing is not ticked first? Just a thought that's all! However i did have the same problem after months of refilling my own cartridges i found one day the colour would not print out at all and the black was perfect and i did everything! In the end it was a problem due to the fact that i had touched the face of the receiving part where the colour cartridge makes contact with and there must have been some static there? I dont know how robust this system is but i ended up replacing the printer! - Anonymous
I don't have an answer but if you have got and answer would you send it to me I am lost and my printer is doing the same :(

I had the same problem. Finally, I unplugged the cables in the back and turned the printer upside down. Still nothing. When I sat the printer back down and looked into where the paper goes, I saw an inkpen. I removed the inkpen and it is working fine. I suggest shaking the printer upside down. Maybe this will work.

I have a Lexmark Z31 that prints in color but not in black. the clean nozzel page prints only color,when I switch to printing a letter envelope it prints in black very well, but does not print the body of the letter except for the color letterhead. I can't figure this one out.
by unknown on Apr 5, 2004 at 8:49am Add comment
Replace your black cartridge, you will probably find that your envelope setting uses the colour cart to print black (ie. mixes the colours to create black) that is why you get black for that type of job!
Good luck! - hpwizard

My Lexmark Z43 has stopped printing in color. Black printing is OK. Problem ocurred after my color cartridge ran low on ink. I did two things. I removed the color cartridge and continued to print in black for several days. Then I refilled the color cartridge with color ink and got ink on the interior of the printer. I cleaned the ink off of the interior of the printer and installed a new color cartridge, but still no color. Color cartridge contacts are clean. There are no error messages. Running windows xp pro and usb cable. Port and drivers are OK. What can I do to fix the problem?

I have a Lexmark 5700 inkjet printer with similar problem..
I changed the Black ink with new cartridge..and now no ink transfers to page at all.. the print head moves just like normal.. but nothing prints. Contacts are clean.. I'm wondering if you ever solved your problem.. I'm guessing it might be the print head flat cable that failed at same time of ink replacement.. Any help or info would be appreciated..

Hi,

Lexmark doesnt support refilled carts because they can easily damage your printer.

I'm a Lexmark employee and I strongly advice you not to do it.

The power light on my Z52 blinks 12 times, then pauses, and starts blinking again. I know I've had this problem before, but cannot remember how I stopped the blinking. I've read the manual, and gone on line, but cannot find anything relating to this blinking. Has anyone else had this problem, & have a solution? Thanks!

Saw the same thing on my daughters Z52. After trying the carts individually ended up replacing the "new" color with an "old" color. That stopped the flashing and the printer worked. Putting the "new" one back restored the flashing problem. (It's been a couple of months since you posted maybe you resolved your issue) - Anonymous
hey uh, i have the problem with the 12 blinking lights now. did you ever find how to correct it? i've looked all over and nothing. it keeps telling me to check my connections and my connections are fine. do you have any ideas? - Anonymous
I attempted to install a new cartridge and I too had the power light blinking 12 times and then repeating. I found the following page from Lexmark helpful to fix the problem:

My Z51 was having the same problem after I changed the ink cartrige, the cartrige carriage would not return to the center when the cover was lifted... I realized that I had removed and replaced the cartriges with the power off......I found help at the customer support site that suggested removing the cartriges, then powering up the printer.

After I did this, the cartrige carrier returned to the center when the door was opened. I replaced the ink cartiges and it works now. good luck. - Anonymous
Finally figured out the blinking light problem with the Lexmark Z52. It blinked about 12 times then stopped and repeated this process. We removed the ink cartridge and looked on the back of it and realised that the area on the back of the cartridge was bent and wasn't completely flat. So, we flatened the area and put the cartridge back on and it works. - unknown
my x5270 Lexmark all-in-one suddenly has a "cover open" error when the cover isn't open. It won't do anything; the buttons are useless; the only way I can even turn it off is by unplugging it. Anyone know how to fix this?

Mmm? Tell me are you refilling the colour cartridge yourself?
If you are be aware that you can only usually do this refilling approx 5 or 6 times! After which the sponge or the paper gauze inside this cartridge dries up and does not allow any more ink to flow through! Or you will get a full page which will print, and then go to do the same thing again and you will get no colour print whatsoever, or you get like Rainbow drags through the picture. If this is the case i would suggest you replace this cartridge altogether.If it is a large Cartridge one which to me looks like a council refuse wheelie bin, i am not sure about these, but if you have what is known as a colour 26 or 27 cartridge than this is where i am coming from....Hope this helps! - Anonymous

My Lexmark x75 inkjet seems to be misaligned. It starts to print roughly 2-3 inches from the lefthand margin, then slams to one side of the printer and stops. The software says there is a problem with the "communication" but, no matter what I try, nothing seems to help. In addition, at the corner of each page I attempt to print, there is an ink bloch. Is this repairable or is the printer trio destined for the trash bin?

The wrong cartridge is installed in the control program.
Go to control program and select color or black, new or used, close out and try a test page.
Lexmark tech support has this problem (as well as others) documented on their web site...keyed to your printer model (Z-12)

I have also uninstalled printer and reinstalled with no consistant fix to the problem. I also noticed my sound is gone on computer and don't know if this is related. - Anonymous
If you are using xp there seems to compatiblilty issues with all printers and xp when a completely different program you might not even be using to send to the printer. The problem at work was the newest version of winfas v 10. issues that I had the same errors with the dell at work, and have worse problems with all of my lexmarks.

If you send a file to print unplug your power cable and then replug in. I had to do this everytime I wanted to print with the dell.

I have to use only a usb cable to the back of my z22, it will give me the same error when I use the front usb, or if I use the serial printer cable. If that does not work. Then go to xp site or look at all of the various programs if you are using xp, check with the sites or search for the incompadibilty issues with other probrams and xp's ability to recognize the printer. - Anonymous

I refilled the black cartridge with Sam's refill black ink.
Now the printer does not print black. Color is fine.
Does Lexmark use a special refil ink? Or does the printer have problem?

I did the same thing (buy the Sam's Club refill kit) and my black ink won't print either. I've just spent most of the morning trying to drill holes in the top of my color cartridge too because it wouldn't come off. I hope we can both find an answer to this one soon!

- Anonymous
What brand is the refill kit ? I bought one that is STRATITEC. And will refill a lexmark printer's cartridges, both color and black, 20 and 50 respectively. It should work. Lexmark cartridges use a technology called Thermal printing which means ink is heated to about 30° Celcius before being injected into paper. So there is 2 kinds of inks so far, Water based and pigmented or some call it oil based. So Lexmark uses the 2nd one. So there should be no problem, after filling it with ink try using a paper tissue and apply a little pressure with it on the ink cartridge head until a line of ink appears. This is to pull ink out of the cartridge and then try printing, it should work. - Anonymous
I did the exact same thing that Billo did, filled my black ink cartridge, and my Z22 printer will not print in black. - Anonymous
refilling cartridges is an easy task, but it is best i think to keep two sets handy, keep one filled with the jets taped shut and sealed in a bag while you print with the other. my experience is to leave the freshly refilled cartridge out of the printer for at least overnite. sometimes if you put it back in right away , it will print a test page just fine, then it wont print at all...look to see if it leaked into the carriage..if it did, remove the cartridge and clean it with distilled water to remove excess ink..also, ink can collect around the jets and contacts and cause a cartridge short error,when this happens, you may try soaking the print head of the cartridge in water overnite , and then dry if completely. (be sure the cartridge is dry and not leaking when you reinstall it.) With the black cartridge , if ink is not coming out of the jets, place it on a wet paper towel to get the ink flowing. also you may have to clean the jet area by wiping laterally with a wet paper towel to remove dried ink. cartridges should be refilled before they run dry to prevent the sponge inside from drying out.
One more thing , if you need to clean ink from the CARRIAGE contacts, unplug the power to prevent shorting the CARRIAGE, this can ruin your printer even though it seems to be working fine. (pages will print blank) Make sure the Carriage is dry before restoring power!
Hope this helps. - Anonymous

My sister has a Lexmark Z-43 and is running Windows ME. She doesn't have USB so her printer is connected via the old printer port.

Her printer has stopped printing, it used to work fine. I've updated and reinstalled the driver a number of times and it still does not work. The driver is fine and there is no error or conflict. I can get the printer to work if I am printing out a diagnostic sheet or cleaning it, but if I try to print a document (even from wordpad) it doesn't work. It will tell me the printing is complete when nothing has happened. It is set as the default printer in windows.

Does anyone have a clue what is going on? The lexmark site was of absolutely no help.

I own a Lexmark Z45 printer. I have not used it for some time, so a lot of dried ink had collected on the mechanical assemblies. When the cartridge carrier is in the home position, just below it is an assembly(don't know the correct technical name for this assembly). I removed this assembly and thoroughly cleaned the whole thing. After re-installing. I could not find where one little part belongs. I believe this little lever is supposed to latch onto the cartridge carrier. This part has 4 projections, one of which looks as if a spring is supposed to be attached, Other end of this spring attaches to the frame of the assembly. Another projection is a small round one which looks like it is supposed to fit in a hole on the assembly. Trouble is I cannot locate that hole! I would be one happy old Alzheimer's man if someone can help me. Thanks, thanks, thanks!

I have the Lexmark X5150 All in one. I have never had a problem with this printer until now (when I really need it). I keep getting the message that there is a paper jam. There is no paper jam. I have tried everything I can think of. It seems like the rollers aren't 'finding' the paper, when I help by pushing the paper down it goes right through. This only started today after I changed the ink cartridge. I have called customer support and they were not able to help me. Any advise would be very much appreciated. I need to print boarding passes for an upcoming flight. Thanks, Doss

that is a defect of the 510 that the transfer unit moves to one side and it breaks. you have to change the transfer unit and the code is 56P1651 which costs quite alot. We repair them and we had already 4 printers with this problem - Anonymous
I had a similar problem and lived with it for some time. The error and beeping finally drove me to this site and then on to the Lexmark site when this site gave no answers.
My solution was that the physical install did not reset the system so you have to do it yourself.

Here is a link for the process: I had this very same problem and lived with it for some time. The error and beeping finally drove me to this site and then on to the Lexmark site when this site gave no answers.

Hardware Error: 0502.

On the multi function machine seems to be a coating on the metal rod that the cartridges travel on. Just wipe this rod with a kleenex and the problem seems to go away. Somehow it presents a drag on the cartridges and causes an error.

I have the same problem with my Lexmark P3150 AIO. Since replacing ink cartridges, get a message stating 'Printer cover open', when cover is visibly closed. Have not been able to print a single page. - Anonymous
a microswitch to "tell" the printer "cover open" or "cover closed" is either a) defective or (most likely) not being depressed by an arm that (probably) descends OK but (supposedly) misses the angle to depress the switch.

How do I know?

Someone else told me.

I have the same issue as Patrick, all I did was change out color cartrage and close the cover and the message says cover is open.I'm possitive it's closed no gap all around the area. How do you get to that sensor? I'm wanting to know if Patrick got any solutions.

Hey JoeJoe,
I am running Win200, have just purchased an x1180 and get a similar message "unable to communicate with printer" when I try to print. Sometimes it works though, But I can scan ok. For example, I drag and drop a text file onto the printer name in the printers folder, then it works,but when I try to print from MS-Word, I get the error message. The install was not easy neither, as Windows complained about an "OLD" 16 bit intall? Really messy job. The CD's are marked x1100 and this is what windows finds as well - nothing about an x1180!.
Still trying to fix it....
Good Luck,

Press the page button and the power-on bottom at the same time and hold down for a few seconds then let go of the power switch. The unit will print a test page. If the page prints out the printer heads are good. If the software was installed correctly the problem could be in the usb software of your computer. - Anonymous

Had the same problem with our x6150, and i open up the lid and let the ink cartridges come to the center, in the back where the ink cartridges go back to the left and set, until you start printing, there is two little like strips that stick up, i took and cleaned them with head cleaner and ours starting working again, try that and get back with me and tell me if you got your's going. my e-mail address is [email protected] - Anonymous

Same deal with the color cartridge as well. If you reink the cartridge, the level still states "low".

BTW, the customer support statement that re-inking can harm the printer is horsesh1t. They really need to get a grip. I'll check back if I find a solution.

Hi there,
I have a Lexmark E210 laser printer only 13 months old. I need the gear coupling that is driven by the gear off of the heating element shaft. The gear on the shaft is made of a heat resistant material. The coupling that it engages is made of ordiary white plastic. As the unit runs the heat is transferred to the coupling gear and the teeth become softened and eventually roll over, making the whole unit useless.
Does anyone out there know where I can buy or trade for such an item?? An inquery to the company was of no avail.
Hoping to hear from someone. Thanks.

I've had my X5150 printer for a few months, but I've only used it as a scanner. The other day I tried to print something, and the printer fed paper through but printed nothing onto the paper. I tried printing out a test page from my computer and it came out fine, so I know the computer was talking to the printer, and the ink cartridges were fine. I was on the phone with Lexmark support for an hour installing and uninstalling the drivers to no avail. Finally the tech support stated that the problem rested with the spooler in my computer. I find that hard to believe because the same computer prints to my laser printer without any problems. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what the problem may be?
Some background: I'm running XP Pro, and my computer is connected to my laser printer through a router, but the Lexmark is plugged into the USB port.

Hello,
(Lexmark X83)
I am having a bit complicated problem with my printer. It all started when I tried to print a document. The printer began printing before it took in the paper. After a few seconds, the paper went in and got jammed. After repeating this and a few of my unlucky tries to fix it, the printer stopped printing all together. Now, everytime I try to print, and error message pops up. I have changed the connection, whether its offline or online, the ports. It's all correct. However, I tried printing a test page on command prompt, but that wouldn't work either!
I have also noticed that when I put my printer on, none of the lights on top start flashing (like they used to). The "Lexmark" sign does not go on. Everything is completely blank..all it does is make the noise as if it were turning on.

I doubt anyone will be able to help me with this, but please, if you have ANY suggestions on how to fix my printer, I welcome your replies.
Thank You.

I have had problems getting my printer to work after refilling my cartridges. I have formed a hypothisis. When a cartidge is first installed it is given a code by the printer. If you click "reset catridge level to full" or note that it is a new cartidge the printer it knows that it has been previously installed and renders it useless. Does anyone know if this is true and if so can it be reset?

I have used my scanner on the lexmark X63 in the past without problem; however everytime I make an attempt to use it a message come up that states that an active process is currently using the port, please close the printer control program. I have no idea how to fix it. Please help. I would like to scan some photos.

I have a problem with my X3350 as well. It has happened before: I was printing and somehow the printer and the computer got disconnected for a moment, and the file in print cannot be deleted. I think I tried sommething in the advanced tab of the printer property and changed the spooling function and/or changed the print processor and got it to work. The first time it happened I just reinstalled the software. Now it has happened again.
This time, I went to control panel->admin tools->services and restarted the print spooling. This solved the problem of unable to delete the offending document that was stuck. However, now I am unable to print anything because Lexmark software tells me "communication not available" or "problem communicating with the printer". I tried to restart the computer, and it worked fine for 2 seconds before I hear something getting stuck inside the printer and a red light came on. I opened it up and found nothing. Now, the communication problem happened again.
This could be due to the cheap USB cable I bought from the dollar store, but it has worked without a problem. Also, it could be that my black ink is almost gone (only a grid left). If anyone could help me solve this problem that would be great. I thank you in advance because I have my exams and I really need to use the printer.

I have an X-75 and it seems my problems are just beginning, made a high pitched whistling sound for about a week now, seems hot sometimes. I turn it off at the surge protector and when I try to start it up again, it keeps making sounds as if to start printing, flashing the status light and refuses to print anything. There is also a message saying unable to communicate with printer...I really liked the performance so far (approx. 3 years) but the cartridges are expensive.

After messing about with the troubleshooting program for a while, it seems to cure itself mysteriously, and I can't figure out how. It usually takes about an hour...and as they say, time is money...what to do??

Anyone know of a reliable "all in one" or a way to work with Lexmark that is financially viable?

Thanks,
Mary

Hi,
My Lexmark Z11 won;t feed paper properly. IT spools once fine, then the 2nd time the paper veers right and scrunches up. It all happened very suddenly! It's also wasted a hell of a lot of paper. What to do?

Please, please can someone help?

Thanks very much.

My Lexmark X83 Print control programe inicated that my colour ink level is low. I put in new cartridges( black + colour) into my printer. The Black cartridge is working and printing. The colour cartridge does not work, just print out blank paper, and also the Print control program keep on inicated my colour ink level is low. I have tried taking both the cartridges out and inserted in several times. Taking the USB cable out. It still will not work. Check ink level still low on ink and not printing out colour texts. Now I could not take the cartridges out of the printer, I have tried with a bit force,it will not budge and I connot take my cartridges out now. Please help by showing me step by step instructions to resolve this problem. Thank you for your attention in this matter.

I had a Lexmark Z65 that the power cable (box) started buzzing then died. The cable is almost as expensive as the printer, so I just replaced the printer. I have read about this problem in several forums - I wonder if this is a defect Lexmark needs to address?? Anyone else with this problem? - unknown
I have a Lexmark Z65 that worked okay also. Then I noticed a buzzing sound coming from the printer even when it was turned off. I unplugged the power cord and noticed the voltage box on the power supply cord had started to melt. I'm wondering if the problem is in the printer or the power supply cord. - Anonymous

Fred,
I am having a similar problem with my Lexmark Printer X75 after 2 yrs.
I made sure:

The USB cable and power cable is not damaged.
The All-In-One's Power light doesn't ccome on and the power.

Power cable near printer is warm, but no power seems to be going to printer. Any suggestions for a fix?

My power supply also overheated and melted some. I am told if I had not been home it could had cought on fire. Now the printer is damaged do to the problem with the power supply. I called the Lexmark People and bottom line, warranty is over...,is there something else and end of story.

Purchased a HP printer. Those out there, Lexmark don't care much about customer service. I have purchase over $300 in cartriges to this Lexmark z65 and paid for the printer $200. Bad investment. Won't purchase another Lexmark product.

Friend...

Call Lexmark, you need a new power-cable. I had same problem, same 2years. My power-pack melted and burnt out...
The power-pack damaged the printer...(need buy new one!)
Next printer you get, connect to power supply and turn-off after use. This will extend life of printer power supply.

enrique - Anonymous
You can buy the power supply separately for the Lexmark Z65, it simply pulls out of the back of the printer (modular). I believe I found mine at Ebay. I'd strongly suggest haveing a good surge protector and to pull the plug during sever weather. Mine was melted (happily no damage to printer, just power supply). - Anonymous

Hi, I just had this same problem...
I hope my suggestions to you will be helpfull...

1.Check- The time out period may be too short ...Go to Start - settings -control panel click the printer icon - go to properities - click on details and increase the value.
Make sure you entered the correct port and your printer is online.
Check your disk to make sure you have enough space to install the printer. Make sure when you check the wires that they are not just connected but are tightly plugged in. You may want to connect the small wire behind your computer to a wall outlet verses a master power connector. After checking everything re-install your printer then reboot.


2. Have you moved your tower ( computer ) around lately?
You may have loosen the mother board and connection to your printer. Open the cover to the tower and make sure the mother board is intack. Check to see if anything is loose.
If so, tighten the mother board and try again to install your printer with you Lexmark disk. If you do not have the disk, You can obtain what you need to install your printer from the Lexmark website. Find the Win program click onto it. Then the Lexmark model number of your printer. Then click on downloads.Download and unzip the installation files. Now your readey to reinstall your printer! Good Luck !...
- Anonymous
Make sure that you don't have any programs like firewall or spyware interacting with that install. If not try to go into your computer properties and unload one or more print drivers.
Then try to install and also if you had it for awhile you may want to check the printer head to see if it is not offline. - Anonymous

I had the same problem. Because the printer has only 1 feed roller into the print area, if it gets dirty it'll mis-feed. My solution is to run a piece of card stock with double-sided stick tape positioned on the paper so that when it feeds into the printer it'll pull the crude off of the roller. If you don't use card stock the printer will eat the paper. Try at your own risk! - Anonymous

My x63 processes the paper through like it is printing, but nothing is on the page -- neither black or color. Is this a clogged print-head problem? The ink reservoir indicators in the control panel indicate they are full.

My Lexmark Optra T612 started with a paper jam and now won't stop. I had to remove the flippy thing in back to get a paper jam out and now I think I am putting it back in the wrong way or something fell off. It won't automatically flip up when a paper is coming through, it just forces the paper up and jams on top. It's not being sent through after printing.

If you will go to lexmark.com or the lexmark home site, it will have a place to download printer drivers and software. Find your printer and operating system and download your driver. Good luck!!! This will work for all printers missing a driver. Go to the manufacturers web page and find the drivers and software downloads page. Enter your printer and operating system to find the correct driver. Then downlaod it. If you are wise you will download it to a folder you make called my downloads so you can double click on it to install. You will usually need to remove the last driver before installation. - Anonymous

Dear Lexmark.I lose my printer once or twice a week.(I must install printer)I use system restore and the printer comes back.I believe the Virus(Voondo,trojan horse.)Is stealing the lexmark program and driver.I know the Virus effected the printer.And most likely the software.Isen't that a copy right infringement?I want to install a new driver from your company,and I would appreciate your help.I have been told by retail sellers that I could only purchase the driver with Lexmark.Best Buy and Comp USA.were two of the retail stores that advised me to contact your company.Can you let me know what you can do to help me? Your help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank You. Mr. Robert Phelps.

You don't need to purchase a new driver from Lexmark, as they are all available online for free. Go to: http://downloads.lexmark.com/

I would recommend that you thoroughly disinfect your computer with an anti virus program first. A good free virus scanner is available here: www.f-prot.com - Anonymous
thanks, I uninstalled service pack 2 and then did the system restore, and my printer is merrily printing away. thanks again

I bought a Lexmark X83 printer almost 3 years ago and a few months ago the printer lost power. I am not sure if it is the power cable connecting to the printer or the printer itself. I was using it and all of a sudden there is no power supply at all. Does anyone think it is probably the power supply cord?
Any suggestions would be appreciated. I hate to put out the money for a new printer if it is just the power supply cord.
Thank you.

Dear Anonymous,
Before you replace this printer, just purchase a new power adapter cord like the one which came with the printer. If you can't find one, let me know. I also have an x83 which is not working properly (constant paper jams, but no sign of paper being jammed) so will probably have the power adapter cord (which is like new) available if I decide to dispose of the x83. - Anonymous
Has anyone solve the no power issue on the Lexmark X83? I have the same situation and I know the cord is fine. The scanner light goes on and the printer's three lights come on and quickly go off. Driving me crazy - dee56

I can't get my printer to work and i can't get my scanner to scan, don't know whats wrong - Anonymous
Anyone else have this problem and know how to fix it? Spent way too much time on the phone with Lexmark - installing, uninstalling, purging, downloading. Every time I call, I get a different procedure but no success. Problem going on for almost a year (since bought it).

PROBLEM: If I leave the USB cable plugged into the printer and THEN power up the computer, I get "user intervention" when trying to print. If I leave it unplugged and then power up, 2/3 of the time it works fine. The other 1/3 of the time I get user intervention error again. The only consistent way to fix this problem is to shut down, unplug, reboot.

Lexmark has given me dozens of procedures - none of which work.

The USB card/cable work find with cameras, so I'm at a loss on this one.

Email me if you would -- [email protected]

Thanks.

Is this file just really big?
or is it uncompatible or something?

Mine now prints but will not scan or copy. This is what I did to get it to print.
Printer is Not Detected During InstallationID:ENUS4614 First you need to make all of your files visible. To do this:
Right click the Start button and click Explore.
Click on Tools in the menu bar and select Folder Options.
Click the View tab and select Show Hidden Files and Folders.
Click OK and close the Explorer window.
Click on Start, Search (search all files and folders).
In A word or phrase in the file, type VID_043.
Under the Look in: box, browse to the C:\\Windows\\inf folder. Note: Some systems may have the Windows directory named as Winnt.
If you find some files with a file name ending in 9x.inf, right click the file and select Open. If there is any reference to Lexmark in this file, create a folder on your desktop called Lexmark and move the file to that folder.
You will probably find the following files also:

lexusb.inf
lxbahid.inf
lxbausb.inf
lxbasc9x.inf
oemxx.inf

Move these files out of the inf folder to the Lexmark folder on the desktop and perform the search again. This time they should all be gone because you are now searching in the C:\\Windows\\inf folder.
Disconnect and reconnect the USB cable. If the Add New Hardware Wizard appears, cancel it. Important: Don't use the plug and play installations.
Install the driver again from the CD or downloaded driver.
Reboot the PC.
Look in the Device Manager for any yellow (!) or USB composite device, human interface devices (HID), or imaging devices. If you find one, right click it and go to Properties.
Update the driver. You may want to search for a suitable driver. (Note: This is recommended.) When you see the search results, select one of the other drivers for installation, then click Next. Use the Microsoft file, usbprint.inf.
Finish that installation, reboot and try to print again.

hi:you need to open up the printer and remove both cartridges and u will see a clear plastic strip behind the cartridge carrier, you need to take a tissue and very gently clean the entire plastic strip. this is called the encoder strip and it tells the printer controls where the cartridge carrier is at all times

Went and got new x85, upgrade for better photo pint resolution, otherwise the same all-in-one flatbed printer. Low and behold, same problem after a few sheets of color. Wasted a couple of cartridges on this one too. Now ready to trash both...I hope someone can help me! Cant really afford to buy a third now just to have color but I need to print my photos!

I had a Lexmark X84/85 printer that stopped feeding paper.
Well, I thought...I'll just go out and get another printer.
So I went out and bought a Lexmark X5270.
I installed it under Windows Me and it worked fine.
Then I need to upgrade my Operating System since I was having
a problem upgrading my Norton to the 2005 version...but that's
another story.
To make a long and frustrating story short...
After upgrading my system to Windows XP Home Edition, the X5270
now doesn't work. It worked DURING the Windows upgrade...but
not after the upgrade. So I reinstalled the X5270 driver.
The X5270 driver installation(s) seemed to go OK, but
when I try to print, I get a communications error...like my PC
doesn't know the printer is there, or doesn't know where it is.
I went to the Lexmark website, found something that looked like
it might address the problem, but I need to print it out since it
looks like a complicated process and I'm not a computer guru.
But guess what? I DON'T HAVE A PRINTER!!!
Has anyone else experienced any communications problems with this
particular printer? Does anyone have any suggestions?
Other than trying to get my money back and buying an HP printer?
BTW, the copier works fine...so the machine is working.
Thanks.

To Fix "Carrier Stall" and Encoder strip problems.
1) TAKE OUT POWER COR. Take off encoder strip. There is a hook and each side of the printer. First take the one on the left side by pulling the hook GENTLY so the strip become loose and unhook it. now for the right side you must push the strip in so it come of the hook and then take out.
2) Clean the strip with a wet towel (use alochol is needed). The reinsert the strip back in by first pushing the right side and hooking it. Then take the left side hok and pull it out a little bit. Put the stip bakc on and puch the hook back until the strip is tight.
3) Make sure stip is on the carrier so it can see it. This should be right where the strip naturally land. Behind the carreir ther is a litter cliff where the strip rest on.
4) TURN PRINTER ON.
THIS IS A DELICATE PROCESS> Never try to add to much pressure because it may damge your printer. If you are not comfotable doign this then call Laxmark...but it is not too hard.

Can someone help me to get my Lexmark X83 multi function printer working? When I power on this printer, it does not display anything on the display panel. It looks like there is no power supply. I know nothing wrong with the power supply, because I tried it with another power supply (from my friend's printer) from a different power source. Same result. I have a feeling it could be a fuse , loose wire connection or something else.


Can someone help me? Advise me what to look for?

does anyone know what 50c error code means on the lexmark X5150. lexmark use to build good printer back in the days of the Z11, those printer worked and worked and gave no problems, using one for 5 years, i thought lemark had a good name, i didnt think come up with crap like the x5150 which has always been a problem, i guess they cant afford good engineers anymore with budget cuts, so they build crap with fancey adds behind it

I actually use Epson printers due to their overall studier construction, but here is a little advice to those that insist on using Lexmarks:

If you are refilling cartridges,

DO NOT LET THE INK RUN DRY! LEXS USE THERMAL PRINT HEADS, I.E. THEY HEAT THE INK TO EJECT IT. IF THERE IS NO INK, THE PRINT HEAD WILL OVERHEAT AND SELF-DESTRUCT, AS THERE IS NO HEAT SINK (FOUND ON OLDER THERMAL INKJETS) TO ABSORB THE HEAT.

Apparently it is Lexmark's intention that print heads self-destruct when they run dry, forcing the unwary luser to buy a new cartridge. They are refillable, but rather fragile. Therefore, if you insist on using Lexs, and intend to refill them, watch the ink quantity carefully and add ink when you suspect its beginning to empty. Too full is better than ruining a possibly refillable cartridge.

Epsons dont have this problem as they use piezo-electric print heads which are supposed to last for the life of the printer, not just for a single 20ml of ink.

I have recently installed some new cartridges in my lexmark z31 colour jet printer. Previous to this it had been standing for about a year and a half without use. Now when i print i have white lines appearing through the text and colour images. i have taken the black cartridge out and attempted to clean it but as thus far made no difference. Any tips as to how to get rid of these lines would be greatly appreciated....

Has anyone found a solution for your white lines on the Lexmark Z25?
I have just installed a new cartridge, cleaned the wiper at the maintenance station, cleaned the cartrige nozzle and I am still getting the white lines.
Thanks,

Can someone help me to get my Lexmark X83 multi function printer working? When I power on this printer, it does not display anything on the display panel. It looks like there is no power supply. I know nothing wrong with the power supply, because I tried it with another power supply (from my friend's printer) from a different power source. Same result. I have a feeling it could be a fuse , loose wire connection or something else.


Can someone help me? Advise me what to look for?

I have replaced the black cartridge in my z22 printer and now both status lights are blinking. I have rebooted, powered off and on, reloaded the print driver and so on. I put the old cartridge back in and the problem is still there even though it was fine before I removed it. Any suggestions anyone? Thanks

Hi, I am on a Lexmark optra printer network at work. When i print an internet page it does print in color.

But when i print a jpeg pic, it prints black n white. I am using win2000.I could not find the usual color option check box that comes in printer set up properties.

So I right click on the printer and go in to the properties. There is color management tab with manual and automatic options.
And the printer features in General tab mentions "color: No" but no option anywhere to change this.


Any help appreciated.
Thanks in Advance

Anonymous that posted "I need the software for this printer, I have it hooked up but lost the software": You can download most of the printer drivers directly from the Lexmark "Drivers & Downloads" web-site, located at http://support.lexmark.com .

Hello, I don't know why, but my printer lexmark z45 use to print but it doesn't now. Now I am trying to install the printer, lexmark z45 by the internet because I don't have the disc. I still have no success and want to know if anyone knows how to fix it, and if they could tell me how please.

I have one, I like it(except for when trying to refill the ink tanks,a full refilled ink tank reads empty},lexmark is tricky. In your box there was this big sheet of paper that gives step by step info on what to do,if you follow it to the tee it will work fine, it may be like mine and read 5200 series all-in-one but it will work just fine as 15 steps too, dang thats fast. If for some reason you miss placed it,off to the lexmark site you will need to go. Most mistake are made by getting it,pluging it up and hey it don't work,but now they went and installed the software and before pluging it up or waiting for the software to tell you to plug it up(USB CABLE) if this is the case remove the software, un plug the usb only follow the 15 steps and you will be a happy camper. Oh that Bill thing, just click cancel and install anyway, thats just another one of his kick back ideals.

Ok, for those with Lexmark X63.
Turn your printer off. Hold down the Stop/Clear key and power on your printer. HOld this key down until printer says ok. Your problem should be resolved. Your new ink cartridge should be full and any problem with printing should be resolved. This is a reset procedure, as outline in Lexmark web site. I was going nuts trying to resolve this. HOpe this helps.

I have recently had the same problem. The answer in my case was to unplug the power AND the power module from the printer and leave if for a few minutes, then power on again. Leaving the power module in allows some residual current to maintain the problem.

I think it's something to do with the firmware that controls the splitting of the USB connection getting corrupted. Could explain the cannot communicate with scanner problem as well. - unknown

I've had a lot of trouble with my brand new Lexmark X4250 All-in-one print center. First, I couldn't install the software, but eventually figured out the error came from the install wizard on my computer rather than the driver. Now, I can't get the printer to print. The All-in-one center shows that it "cannot communicate" with the printer and I've tried everything including: checking properties to make sure bi-directional support is enabled, checking to make sure it's connected to a usb port, plugged and unplugged the usb, turned the printer on and off, reset numerous times, un and re-installation, troubleshooting using the Windows ME help and support wizard and the all-in-one support center troubleshooting, the latter being of absolutely no help at all (Check connections, reinstall were the only solutions). I have tried EVERYTHING you can think of and I am at my wit's end, and what makes it worse is that scan, copy, and fax work but it absolutely will not print! I am using Windows Millenium Edition. So now my questions are:

1-Does this sound like a problem with my computer system or the actual printer itself? I have some spyware and adware on my computer that I'm still trying to get rid of, so I was thinking that MAY be the cause?

2-If not, what can be done? I searched other suggestions for lexmark printers on this site and took out the ink cartridges and put them back in like suggested as a solution, but still nothing.

Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

My new P6250 prints out in gray scale when it's supposed to print out in color on the "LEXMARK FAST PICS." The Lexmark techs seem to be stumped.
by unknown on Jun 20, 2005 at 11:14pm Add comment
Hi there, Got the problem fixed. I really should have put more info when I posted the problem / request. I'm running Win ME (which I learned off the old Dish Network's show "TVTECH.COM" is the worst Windows program created)!!

Finally, a Lexmark tech (who seemed very knowledgeable {this problem stumped the first two techs) suggested that I had a printer spool problem in that the correct print message was not being sent to the printer. He had me do a couple of steps, but that didn't help. He was probably partially right, but maybe for not the reason that he thought.

I gave up messing with it, followed the advice in the manual which said that if there was a problem with the sofware, one should un-install the program and reinstall it. Ha! Upon re-loading it would not install because it said that there was no connection to the printer. So, I suspected the USB cable (which was new, had to purchase separately, because the stingy Lexmark folks don't provide a USB cable with the P-6250 / All In One Home Center)package. I changed ports, to no avail. So, I put it back to the original port. Somehow, I think the cable connected and the computer saw that I had some new hardware.

The installation instructions said to "Cancel all new Hardware screens" that appear as the program was installing. Finally after the installation kept stopping, I clicked "OK" on the Windows New software / hardware screen (that kept coming up) and the program installed. So, either the installation program was faulty the first time I installed it and the new USB was possibly intermittenly bad. Oh yeah, I replaced the USB Cable and yes, I had done the latest driver update.

Anyway, the printer now does its' job in the "Lexmark Fast Pics" section by printing out great color pictures. I'm almost afraid to check out the Scanner (it was working) and the other features of this all in one gadget)!!!!!!!! But, the photos are spectacular in their color, etc. Yeah, I was printing from photos on my hard drive, which I had run through the Adobe photo editor.

Thanks for your suggestion

The hardware is all working
The belts are clean, and no build up of ink
But The Black Cartridge WILL STILL NOT PRINT...
Brand New Cartridge..(2nd one bought) thinking the 1st 1 was on shelf too long, at 26.95 a whack!

The original thread was started by someone who didn't read the posting rules about putting one's model number in the subject line. A fairly common occurence since most people can't be bothered to read anything in their impatience to get free help. Since then, anyone who googled "Lexmark printer problem" found this thread and posted to it. So how you can claim this to be your original thread is beyond me. Maybe you should unsubscribe to this thread and really start your own original thread. Since you probably didn't read all the way through the replies you get, there is an unsubscribe link at the bottom of each one. Get a lot of angry emails asking to unsubscribe from posts, so I know that the same people who can't be bothered to read the posting rules, can't be bothered to read all the way through the replies they asked to be subscribed to. Amazing the total ingratitude people have when they are expecting free help and don't get any. I'm sure they don't complain to the mfgs. when they pay $30 or more for tech support over the phone and get useless advice that does nothing. When you're paying absolutely nothing, you have no right to bitch about it! - moe

for general information

i found the hp thread on this site while trying to solve a friend's lexmark doing its 'pretty in pink' printing impersonation

the unbelievably low-tech solution of putting boiled water in a mug, sitting the cartridge in it for 20 minutes and cleaning/drying with kitchen tissue worked first time

maybe it applies to all inkjet printers - i don't know

but worth a try if your lexmark cartridges are playing up

and let's face it - no printer/cartridge manufacturer is going to publicise this and lose out on cartridge sales

I have a Z25. It does not print test page, but the clean heads option works and the alignment does not. When I choose print test page, it simply shoots out a blank page. I have done the troubleshooting option, uninstalled and reinstalled but to no avail. Any assistance available here?

My Z615 printer recently quit printing black text. Color is fine. I have changed black cartridges but it is the same.
I have tried to clean nozzles with utility but it doesn't help.
What can I do?

Everytime it gives me a communication error, I call the help desk for lexmark and they tell me I have to have a 2.0 USB I call HP and they say that I have an 2.0 USB. Can anyone send me in a direction.

I've had the same problem...it emits a high-pitched whine...my computer won't even recognize it's there. I was searching for pricing for a new cable, when I ran across your post.

I'm discouraged to learn that they are nearly as expensive as the printer itself. I've had my printer for two years, probably used it ten times, spent a small fortune on ink, had to install it so many times I've lost count, and now this.

I certainly hope they are looking into this/these problem(s), because at this point, I'm wishing I had never purchased mine.

Hi!
There's a possibility of the print head circuitry at fault. You stated the cartridges are new. If both cartridges are new from the box and no new programs were installed prior to the problem then there is a strong possibility the problem is in the circuitry of the unit. You said you print a test page and it comes out blank, meaning the signal from your computer is received by the printer and starts printing (blank). Check this out, remove the cartridges and inspect the plastic circuitry on the back to the print head and at the bottom of the cartridge (don't touch the circuitry with fingers), also inspect the cartridge holder in the printer and clean with clean paper towel (both). A break in the circuitry will cause same problem you are having. Everything should look smooth. Had at one time same problem, damaged to both print cartridges due to many sheets of paper (project paper) loaded at once when the paper loaded and print heads hit the paper damaging the foil circuits on the cartridges.

end of story, call Lexmark, tech support, cry some and see if they can help out...
tel. 1-800-332-4120 / have ready the Model# and serial#

PS: Hope you have better luck then I did with Lexmark...

I recently replaced both black and colour printer cartidges of my Lexmark X5150. Since then, everytime I print in colour, a blue "overprint' is printed on anything I try to print whether graphics or text. It looks like the text has been highlighted in blue, and if a photo, blue printed over the entire photo. Can anyone please help???

I just wanted to pass along something positive. I had posted about a problem (8-5-05/9pm) with my printer cord, and have since received word from Lexmark that they will replace the cord free of charge (my warranty had expired). Their response was fast, and the cord is en route right now.

I know others have mentioned that Lexmark's support isn't that good, but I'm more than happy with my experience with them, so don't discount them as a viable option to your printer problems.

My p3150 All-In-One printer worked great for the longest time. Then I moved my desk to face a different direction and had to unplug and replug everything in. When I finished, everything worked except my printer. A messege came up saying that it didn't recognize the driver. So I tried everything, including uninstalling the program. Now, another error messege comes up saying that I'm not allowed to install it because it's not good for MS-DOS and Windows applications. It was just fine before, and I don't understand. I don't want to tell my parents because they're already mad at me. Any ideas?

Click on Printers and Faxes under your Start menu. The printers folder will then be opened. See if any other printers are listed that are no longer in use. Right click on each one in the list you no longer use, then left click on delete in the currently displayed window.

Go to control panel. Click on Add/Remove programs; select any program with the word Lexmark in it. Click remove at the far right button for each you wish to remove.

Start fresh download of new drivers for your printer at Lexmark.com/downloads

How low is your colour cartridge? - moroboy
You don't mean to replace the black cartridge with the color cartridge, do you? I have tried a new black cartridge and a refilled black cartridge, but no change. It won't print anything in black. It prints okay in color, and it will print a black document that gets faxed in the color mode, and it will copy a black document in the color mode. In both cases, it comes out in a pleasant green color.

I had the same problem. The plastic tab that depresses the micro switch fell off the micro switch. I had to take the printer apart to retrieve the piece and put it back on the switch. All is fine now. If yours just got knocked off and is not broken then you can do the same. It was a pain to get the covers off.

Wendi, I'll try...I'm not a technician.

I assume you have a Lexmark 5270 all in one printer.
You have to be able to look down the slot where the micro switch is.

There are 2 plastic tabs that are keeping the cover from opening all the way up. Gently push these tabs to the right as you lift the cover.(inside on the left and right back)

Looking at the printer with the cover open you will see a slot about 4" from the right side back.
Look in and see if there is a black plastic lever. This is what trips the micro switch on an off indicating if the cover is open or closed and brings the ink cartriges to the center. If you don't see it and only see the circuit board, then maybe it got knocked off when the cover was closed (like mine did).

If it's not there, the steps that I had to do to get it back on were very hard and frustrating. Lexmark didn't make it easy to get inside and at one point I thought I was going to break the plastic case prying it off. You might be better off having a technician fix it.

Let me know.

You can visit the Lexmark.com web site and download appropriate drivers (firmware) for your new computer. Make sure you download the firmware which matches your operating system (Windows 98, Windows XP).
by moroboy on Sep 23, 2005 at 3:59pm Add comment
I have just spoken with Lexmark, and if anyone has the same problem as I did, where a new cartridge is not working (in my case, color), it is possible that the cartridge connections are no longer working. If you call Lexmark (1-800-332-4120)and give them all the data they need, they will send you another cartridge as long as you were using the correct Lexmark cartridge in the first place. The new cartridge worked for me and now I can brighten things up once again. :)

I'm pretty sure if you remove the Lexmark program which is installed for your Lexmark x63 using add/remove programs in the control panel, it should also remove the driver for this printer.

You dont state whether you have bought an original Lexmark cartridge or one of these refactory issues? if you have bought a product which is not genuine consider your printer bound for the scrap heap! there is no cure for this problem and you will find the printer has shut down because it has registered that the ink inside the cartridge which is a remanufactured product is foreign.
If you have use a refill kit forget it also as this will damage your machine!
There must also be genuine lexmark cartridges which for some strange reason also cause the printer to pack up? This might be due to shelf life being out of date? or something wrong with the Print Head itself? You must never touch the print head either.
If i was you i would suggest you Dump this pile of rubbish and go check out the Cannon Pixma iP3000 which is relativly cheapand will end all your problems beleive me. Sacrifice around £80.00 and get your self a better machine! keep the Lexmark for it's scanner!! Go check out http://www.amazon.co.uk. here you will find this baby!

Ok Lexmark fans!! I have read many of your problems on here but mainly i wish to deal with the Colour printing problem first!
I had purchased a Lexmark 1130 at which i decided to cut corners and not pay the ridiculous amounts lexmark are charging for their cartridges, No Instead I aquired a refill kit and carefully filled the Colour cartridge at which i had been doing for some time and worked fine! That is until one day i printed a Picture and once this had started to print i was horrified to find that the Pic looked as though i had taken sand paper to it.
I then found that the printer was not printing in colour "Oh What"? i stripped the cartridge cleaned the nozzles put it back in and still nothing but black printed perfectly.
I decided to buy another printer as something was definitely wrong with this one? So i bought another lexmark but an 1180 which was more or less exact to my 1130. What a fool i can hear some say!! Yes i know i should have ditched lexmark right there and then. so my 1180 was going along just fine until one day approx 4 months later the colour stopped printing, this time i had used no refill cartridge i bought an original Lexmark Cartridge and the colour stopped printing. So hasten to add i could not find the receipt for my printer so i contacted lexmark to which would have been easier just to have gone straight to MI5, They told me they could not help unless i had my purchase reciept this was frustrating as i told them it was down to your cartridge this happened but to no avail totally unsympathetic. So i decided to ditch this printer! I took the advice of a lady from this site and i did exactly what she said and aquired a much better printer a Cannon PixmaiP3000 and i have never looked back since! My advice to all you printer owners out there if you have Lexmark throw it in the bin where it belongs because this stuff is rubbish! I still use mine for the scanner but the printer is totally gone.If you are toying with the idea of buying a printer dont Buy Lexmark!! and dont replace your lexmark with another Dummy.ANYBODY THAT ATTEMPTS TO REFILL THEIR CARTRIDGES RUN THE RISK OF DAMAGING THE COLOUR PRINTING SIDE OF THIS MACHINE! I dont know what it is that actually stops the printer from working but i guess it might be the viscosity or something in the Ink that Lexmark recognises as its own or a foreign ink? Why my 1180 shut down i dont know because this was an original cartridge. Any cartridge which has the print head within the cartridge cannot be refilled i dont care what any of you say "YOU CANNOT REFILL THESE CARTRIDGES" and if you do yes your printer may work for a while but eventually it will stop!
The Cannon Pixma iP3000 you can refill these if you wish but it aint worth it! as the replacement Cartridges cost approx £20.00 to replace all of them! So for the price of one small lexmark Cartridge from the 1130/1180 you can buy all the cartridges you need for your Cannon at less the price it will cost you for one Colour Cartridge on the Lexmark! And you can print CD's and DVD's with this baby or print photo's straight from your digital camera. keep the lexmark for its scanner and use your Cannon for all your printer needs. This is an excellent bit of kit and well done to Cannon!!! Lexmark I'm sorry people but these printing machines i would compare to a skoda they are crap and not worth the money they are asking for them! Lexmark get your act together you are ripping people off with these problomatic machines which do not do what the label says!And your over the top charging of cartridges which contain as much ink as i can spit! CRUSADE!! DUMP YOUR LEXMARK NOW BEFORE IT DUMPS YOU!

I had this stall problem for months and had just about given up. I even set up a new printer yesterday and had my X73 ready to go in the trash. Thought I'd try one more time.

I am in the UK and have a Lexmark X5260 All-In-One with the same problem - "Cover Open" - from new. After reading all of this website I phoned the Lexmark support number with my till receipt in my hand; I got the number in one of the white manuals (it diverted to India). Lexmark spent 5 minutes on the phone with me before deciding that it was a faulty sensor and they sent me a brand new replacement X3350 within 3 working days ... it was posted in Germany/Switzerland and therefore was only missing a UK power lead, otherwise it was the full package. It takes the same cartridges as the old, so I ended up with spares there. They said I must dispose of the old printer in my own way, preferably via a recycling scheme, perhaps using a dealer. Basically, the Lexmark service was 100\% perfect. But maybe they have had so many calls on this and are reading the internet.

If the paper is going to the right and jamming, it could be that the slide tab that holds the paper to the correct size isn't next to the paper. It should be snug to the paper but still letting the paper go through. I had the same problem until I moved this tab snug.

After printing several hundred envelopes, a nasty smear appears on subsequent printing.

Seems like the cartridge gets dirtied up.

A new toner cartridge fixes the problem but that's an expensive way to print envelopes.

Any experience on keeping the envelopes clean?

Wiping the printer insides, etc. don't help.

Printer is a Lexmark Optra T612.

Thanks.

How to Install the Cartridges in the Lexmark X5150
http://support.lexmark.com
by armcan on Nov 3, 2005 at 6:51pm Add comment
When installing your printer you have to select which cartridge you have in for instance the 27/26 if you select the wrong one, it gives an error saying it can't pick up the colour/black.

I have a lexmark printer, and all of a sudden it is printing out unwanted characters at the top of my page? Any solution to why this is happening? Thanks
by Anonymous on Nov 9, 2005 at 10:17am Add comment
Don, to dowload the driver on your new PC go to Lexmark website & you can download it for free.

Anonymous, (I know there are many of you but the one with unwanted characters) - this normally is a software or cable fault. Make sure that when you go to print it is going to the correct printer. Try changing the cable or even try deleting the driver & re-installing.
Hope this helps?!

I just dont get this site at all i get emails coming out of my earholes from alleged people replying to my thread and all i can see is people asking for help with their printer problmes Namely Junk like Lexmark! People wake up and take notice There are more problems with any Lexmark printer then any other make i know! Bets thing you can do with this is throw it in the bin as this is where Lexmark truly should be.And even if yours does work fine you get ripped off by lexmark for their over priced rubbish cartridges and all you are paying for is the privalage to allow lexmark to rip you off.
many times have i passed joe public in supermarkets,computer warehouses and you see them Hmm? What printer shall i buy? I head straight for these people and usually tell them the truth what they are going to expect. some people just too stupid to see what i am saying go ahead and buy Lexmark cause it looks the buisness and it does everything it says on the packaging! Hmm at least for the moment it does.
Wise up people Lexmark are taking you all for a ride "BUY A CANNON"Face up to it your printer is dead and if it aint dead yet it will soon be! I have two of them still sat down here on the floor and Lexmark has not given me my money back for either of them and they can see they are bran new! Hardly touched by mankind.
I have been to hell and back and wasted lots of money trying to get these pathetic machines to work and they dont work! DO NOT USE REMANUFACTURED CARTRIDGES EVEN THOUGH THE MAKER STATES THEY WILL WORK ON LEXMARK THEY DO NOT! AND YOUR MACHINE WILL SEE TO IT THAT THE COLOUR PRINTING PACKS UP.
LEXMARK RESPOND TO ME PLEASE I AM STILL AWAITING YOUR REPLY AT WHICH SO FAR YOU HAVE IGNORED. ALL I WANT IS THAT YOU TAKE THESE MACHINES BACK AND REIMBURSE ME! I DO NOT WANT ANOTHER ONE OR ANY NO FRILLS TALK! APPROX £145.00 INCLUDING ALL THE WASTE ON YOUR SO CALLED LEXMARK CARTRIDGES I WASTED MONEY ON.
AND IF I DONT SOUND HAPPY BELIEVE ME THIS IS NOTHING COMPARED TO THE RAGE THAT I FEEL THE WAY JOE PUBLIC IS BEING RIPPED OFF BY YOU!

In response to your problem, I have a newer version the X51 series and have experienced the same problems. Don't know why but if you strip the printer / scanner down and unplug all ribbon cables and then re-plug the ribbon cable to the display / key board (on scanner cover)the print resets itself when you power it on. Disconnect the power and reconnect all cables / re-assembly the printer / scanner and it should work once again. If not then there is a failure on the main print PCB board and it would make more sense to buy a new printer. Try it and let me know if this works. - Anonymous

I am IT Support, that maybe is because the motor that move's the scanner lamp is damage or the sensor is damage and don't recognize wen the lamp moves from one side to the other.

there should be a way to disable de scanner function, but I dont know how..

Last night I tried something. I don't know if it may cause problems in the future, but it worked last night. I just cleaned the encoder strip with a kleenex and some de-natured alcohol. It worked for printing 200 envelopes after that last night. But I have no idea what the strip is made of and if the alcohol might damage it in the long run. Acetone would probably be better, but I didn't have any.

NO, NO, NO, NO! What is it with this alcohol fetish everyone has. Ink is water soluble. Alcohol does NOTHING! It's the 30\% water in the alcohol. Why not use pure water????? As for acetone, it will nicely remove all the lines on the strip. Acetone is for removing nail polish. Use it for it's intended use only. Best thing for cleaning strip is window cleaner.

I'm having problems with my Lexmark X71-X75. For some reason instead of starting on the left side of the paper to print, it starts printing around the middle of the paper..it looks like the cartridges cant make it all the way to the right side of the printer...then after it prints a couple lines, the printer completely stops. I lift up the scanner part to check the cartridges and it seems like it gets stuck on the left side of the printer. Anybody know hwat i can do?

I've had a Lexmark 5270 for about 2 years, and have normally been able to clean the heads using the Printer Utilities. After replacing both carteridges because they were empty, the quality is 'grainy' and there is often a 'discolored' line at the bottom. Is there a way I can clean the heads below the carteridge or do I need to return the printer, as it should still be under warrenty.

by unknown on Dec 16, 2005 at 10:34am Add comment
Hi, Sadiejude; Your best bet is to use the filler syringe and extract the ink from the cartridge through the filler holes the same way you extracted the ink from the bottle originally. You should eject the removed ink into another clean container. Do this a few times until you get most of the ink out.(You may be able to salvage this if it looks like it isn't contaminated with another color.) After you've extracted all of the wrong ink, if your kit came with a solvent, you could try injecting some of it into each reservoir and run a test page a few times, then extract the solvent before filling with the correct colors. It may take a few printings to get the wrong colors out, but it should eventually correct the problem. Good luck! - Taffybach
Remove the top from the cartridge preferbly over a sink having Hot water running as youi go through the task at hand.
Holding the cartridge over a paper towell take it to the sink
have tweezers or a small pair of needle nose pliers at the sink
when you get to the sink
take the tweezers and remove the spong material you are concerened about and hold it under the running water until most or all of the ink is rinsed out of the sponge you may need to
use a few more clean paper towells or TP asnd squeeze the sponge unril it is just a damp sponge then rinse again uintill color is gone from the sponge dry the sponge again as much as you can squezzing it in another paper toweel or TP or tissure paper get it as dry as possible insert the sponge back into the cartridge slot fill it with ink and use another tissue to clean the bottom of the inkcartridge prior to installing it back into the printer, do a nozzel clean and pray it works I'm going through the same problem onkly to find out it is a bad sensor in the cartridge itself caused from taking it in and out of the printer
to many times ? I think.
Good kuck

My 5150 Lexmark printer won't print in color and I have to select "best" quality to get a good black. My operating system is Windows XP Pro,. I recently refilled both cartridges, and they worked ok for a few weeks. Now, the color doesn't print at all, but when I remove the cartridge and press it against a paper towel, there is a good strong pattern of all 3 colors, just like a new cartridge would show.

Hi THANKS alot for your response.. my kit was a little starter kit i ordered from ebay it didnt come with a solvent but i did extract the ink out yesterday and actually rinsed the sponges out with water and kept repeating each color. i had trouble with the yellow at first printing out green but after a few prints its normal so now people in my photos dont have RED faces lol but so far so good i cant believe i didnt destroy the cartridge after all the water i used but i figured what the heck may as well try it cuz i wasnt able to use it anyways!

The Transparent strip which u mentioned above is known as the "ENCODER STRIP".. It is very hard for u to get this strip fixed ..
what i would suggest u is to kindly check the warranty of ur printer and get it replaced from Lexmark Tech Support( 1-800-332-4120)

Hello everyone,

I have a lexmark 83 and it has worked beautifully for a long time but now... it grinds and does nothing. I been to tech. support on Lexmark and I've downloded the update to my version-nothing. I've turned it off, picked it up, turned it sideways etc., everything that site tells me to do. It does sound as if something is loose but nothing falls out.

The printer tells me to unlock the scanner. It isn't locked. Now it tells me there is a "scan motor error." How do I fix this. I am not afraid to take it apart-it is useless to me now anyway.

Thanks for your help. Ellie

Hi Ellie

Lexmark X83 Unlock scanner occurs due to damage of scanner lock mechanism inside the printer..
Added to that u hav a Scanner Motor Error which cannot be fixed for free and it will cost as much as buying a new one..
The Best thing u can do now is to think of buying a new printer..

I had the sme problem with my Z82 ihad two other printers so I punched a hole with a knife the plastic it is very thin so it was not a problem doing ity through the side of the printer where the cartridges could be seen I found that one of the cartridges was not fully installed and got caught on another part of the printer case and it did not want to move and it sounded like gears grinding when I would start the printer up until I inserted a butter knife and pushed the cartridge back into position it has worked fine for over a year now
I just keep the ugly side against the wall.

Yes, Unfortunately, it will cost more to repair than to replace.

Now, I did take this apart a little. Mostly I wanted to see what the red plastic switch really did or where it went. If you are only getting "unlock scanner" it might not be too late for you.From what I can tell the top of the red plastic bar is the only point of contact. It slides up behind the scanner bar-I think it is the scanner bar. What I couldn't find is anything it pushed against. If you go to the Lexmark site for the 83 there is some information there. Didn't help me, might help you. As a last ditch effort I emailed Lexmark (again) asking for information on the connection point. If I get anything helpful I let you know. (A coin did fall out-I can only guess where that came from and what damage it might have done.)

So good luck. Looks like I have one more paper weight for my collection.

The second half of the page is extremely faint or just a bunch of splotches.

I have clean the cartridge and printer cable. Any idea what is wrong?

I'm using 17 black ink cartridge. The colour cartridge is fine

How do i put new ink cartridge in my Lexmark Printer?
by unknown on Jan 16, 2006 at 6:59am Add comment
Usually the ink cartridge just snaps in and out of the little compartment in the bottom. My printer has this place in it where you can open the little door and the ink cartridge is right there. All you have to do is pull it out and push the new one in its place. Thats what you have to do if your printer is anything like mine. - wjg

I have a lexmark x 75. I moved my printer and when I pluged it in it did not power up. My printer is 3 yrs old.
I took the ink cartridge out and placed them back. Which seemed to work Great. It seems it has an internal memory and it reset itself.
But I had just started reinstalling (at the same time) the software. Some how it messed it up. Now I'm back to square one. Can anyone HElP Me

I've had a Z31 for a while now, and while I think it just devours ink, I have been fairly happy with it. In the last few days it has developed a problem: The top of the page is not printed, and the rest of the page gets scrunched and it illegible. When i feed paper, I hear a very regular "clonk" when the feed mechanism is operating. My hunch is that one of the gears is bad. Is it time to look into another printer, or can this be easily fixed?

Lexmark X85
I have had this printer for some time, but from day one it prints fine, but whenever making a "copy", black and white, the entire page is filled with black ink! What a waste of ink!!! I have rendered it totally useless for making copies. I also tried color copy, after wasting 2 sheets of paper filled with black ink, and I finally got the text portion on the copy, and the rest of the page was solidly filled with color ink. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Hello,
I've had a Lexmark x6170 for 16 months. "Hardware Error:0502" appeared on the LCD display when recieving a fax. I was able to print a document right after that. I went to Lexmark's online tech support and followed the instructions for checking the encoder strip. When done, I turned on the printer and the error message appeared, now preventing me from doing anything! I called tech support on the phone. They were not very helpful and told me that my encoder strip was bad and I'd have to replace my printer (of course my warranty is up). I indicated that I wasn't interested in buying another Lexmark if this was a problem I would have again after only 16 months. They told me that a Hardware Error 0502 was very rare. Has anyone else experienced this? I don't know what to do at this point.
Thank You for any help or advice.

You will sometimes get that error when paper is misloaded. Try removing paper, turning off power and then unplugging power. Then plug in power, turn on power, push clear fault button next to the power button and reload paper. - Anonymous
i´m sorry don´t speak english

i´m speak spanish

traslate please
yo tenia el mismo problema, la solucion fue hacerle mantenimiento a la impresora.

procedimiento:
abrir la impresora como si fueras a cambiar los cartuchos con la impresora apagada, aceitar la barra sobre la cual se deslizan los cartuchos (buge) cuidado con aplicar demasiado aceite pues este se ira hacia la parte inferior de la impresora y empezara a manchar las hojas.
espero que te sea de gran ayuda

Nelly,

Try this: goto www.lexmark.com, click 'Drivers and Downloads', choose 'InkJet', then click on the link to Z705. From there you'll have to choose your operating system and should be able to download the driver.

Hope this helps,

No. Still have exactly the same problem.

I'm in Naga City, Philippines, and I won't be covered by warranty so I'm having second thoughts about sending it to the shop for professional repairs. I'll let you know when I find something. Please do the same if you will. Thanks!

Hi all

There are a number of requests from people who have lost their CD's and always some bright spark tells them to go to downloads.lexmark.com. Perhaps some of those 'clever' people would like to go to that site and find the installation programs for the all-in-one centres that Lexmark have sold for the last few years.
Yes there are drivers, yes thay are the right drivers but not the installation pprograms that are on the disc. Without these simple printing can be done, but you have to bypass the use of the simple all-in-one centre and use software controll. Not all of us want that as that was not why we boufgt this type of machine.

Please stop sending problems with lost discs to http://downloads.lexmark.com as the whole site has absolutely nothing on it to help. And don't ever hope for a reply from the e-mail links on the web site. You might just as well wait for Armageddon.

Regards
Eddie

I got a lexmark X1180 and i had a problem that when the paper feeder starts the paper is straight but after an inch of paper is used the paper starts to vear off to the right side of the machine and either jambs completely or crinkles on the right side of the paper. I looked down the paper feeder and saw a little pencil had got jammed down the bottom. So i removed it and the printer was working fine afterwards. I decided to post this message as i saw a few people had the same problem. So if you do have this problem, look down the paper feeder for something that shouldnt be there. Hoped this has helped !!!!

Hi, thanks for the information on the poor paper feed from a stuck pencil, my son had a similar problem and after taking the printer apart I found it had a small peice of the lead from a colouring pencil stuck in the feed. The shop already quoted a minimum of £25 to just look at the problem and were suggesting new feed rollers.

A pencil was a little easier to see but the tiny piece caused the same problem.

Hi! I have a Lexmark Z35. The error said, "cartridge short," followed the troubleshooting menu, turns out my cartridge had short-circuited, the black one.

I tried to look for answers here, but im not sure if I got it right... help!

Anyhoo...

1) Can i still use the old cartridge? or do I need a new one?

2) I tried to clean the printer so I opened it... after this, I tried to turn it on. A spare part, popped out from somewhere.. and I couldn't figure out where to place it. :( it's a small black piece... i heard it pop when I opened the cover (when the cartridges were supposed to go to the middle), then the cartridges didnt move and stayed on the left side.

Thanks so much!!! will appreciate the help.

I have the same problem many other people have one day my Lexmark x2250 stopped printing in black then gradually stopped printig in color also until all it printed was blank pages. These are fairly new cartrides. I had the same problem with my old canon printer and that did not work after buying new cartridges so I don't think thats the problem. The cartridges could have dried out but I'm not sure if there is a solution for that. I would appreciate it if someone could help.

Hi

I have a Lexmark Z715 printer that will not print in color. The black is very mottled looking as well.
I have already done the following:

--bought new cartridges-some manufactured in The Phillipines and the others manufactured in New Mexico

--"wicked" the cartridges, ink does go onto the paper towel

--removed the protective tape

--rebooted and re-installed the software at least 20 or more times

--clapped my hands and snapped my fingers while chanting a voodoo curse, during a thunderstorm on Friday the 13th while a herd of wild penguins flew overhead leaving droppings on my right shoulder on the eve of a full moon

What I haven't done is print anything from my brand new printer!!! grrrrrrrr
Please help!

I was recieving the error message (0502) on my Lexmark 5150, and after I tried the advice on repositioning the decoder strip that all of the web sites suggest trying (see http://support.dell.com/us/en/kb/document.asp?dn=1080620#Sectlink ), the printer still came up with the same code. In addition to the code however, I was noticing that my paper was not getting past the compensating rollers located inside the printer. I decided that there must be something caught in the printer, preventing the paper from passing, so I turned the printer upside down and out came a push pin onto the floor! So, that just goes to show that an obstruction can cause the 0502 message as well as the decoder stip being out of place. The Lexmark technition that I called couldn't figure that out, as he gave me the same information regarding the decoder strip.

Go to Lexmarks website and download a driver for installing your printer. If you don't have a lexmark, go to the manufactures website. There you should be able to find what you are looking for. Here's the place to go at Lexmark:

Lexmark x75. Put in a new color cartridge. Went through the whole installation procedure of alignment etc. it printed for a day then stopped. The the printer can not recognize the color cartridge. Put the old worn out cartridge in and the printer works fine. It finds the color cartridge. Put the new one back in and the printer can not see if it is there and asks me if there is a cartridge in the machine. hate to throw away a new cartridge. any ideas. Black cartridge works well.

The wrong cartridge is installed in the control program.
Go to control program and select color or black, new or used, close out and try a test page.
Lexmark tech support has this problem (as well as others) documented on their web site...keyed to your printer model (Z-12)

H! I just purchased a Z517 Lexmark printer, because it was cheaper to buy the whole thing than replace my cartidges :) I have a dell a920 and was wondering if anyone has tinkered around and got the lexmark cartridges to fit into the dell. They are basically the same cartidge but have a little plastic thing on the casing inside the printer itself. Please... if anyone has any input on this, I would love to find out!! Thank you

I own a lexmark All In One X1180, at one point I had to reinstall it after upgrading my OS to service pack 2. The printer works fine but the scanner has no response, no messages or reactions, I press the scan button and got nothing. The CD refuses to work (and strangely enough its for the X1100 but it worked the first time round). And after having tried a variety of drivers from the lex site and other places it still won't work.

Has this anything to with service pack 2?

Anyone?

Hi! I have a Lexmark X1185 and I just put new color/black ink cartridges in about 2 weeks ago, the test came out fine. Here I am a few days later printing color and first it comes out no color hardly at all , kept reprinting and it got better but not the way it should be. Its showing white lines/vertical. Did troubleshooting guide at lexmark, no help. Took it out and put it back in, thats when it actually got better but still has white lines, I actually do have color now but I need help. Anyone? Thanks so much!!!

my friend's x1180 suddenly stopped working about a month ago. It freezes while starting printing and the pc must be manually rebooted. Same with scanning - it freezes during the scan preview. Installed new drivers, reinstalled the system, upgraded to sp2, heck even formatted the HDD and put a fresh system - nothing's working. Yet it works smoothly on my notebook, which means there's nothing wrong with the device. What's going on? Does anybody knows how to resolve it?

I have a lexmark 615 that was connected to my desktop pc running off win98se. Something went wrong & I tried to uninstall it (with intention of installing it over again) & had problems. Now since I tried reinstalling it, seems to install software properly (including updated drivers) but there is no connection to computer to print from(connectd to USB port as before). I installed on laptop & it works so it is my desktop. Any ideas? I am running win98se with Norton Antivirus & basic zone alarm.

My lexmark printer is irritating the hell out of me! I have just put two brand new ink cartridges in, but black text comes out with white lines through it. I have cleaned the ink nozzles, but to no avail. The colour comes out perfect with no white lines, just the black ones. I have cleaned the nozzles about 4 times and it hasnt made any difference! I need to print my dissertation out soon, help!

Lexmark 6200 displays a cartridge error “replace the cartridge” message this, after I filled to the brim, my left side photo cartridge I changed [ 5 ] of them out.
All give me the same message.
I did the alignment, clean procedure and all other recommended.
From the program and the printer itself. "No Fix"
I cleaned the copper strips on cartridges and the printer
Loading box.
I soaked all cartridges in hot water before refilling and tested each one with tissue paper to extract ink before installing the cartridge.
I also refilled a Large Black cartridge " No Print? "
I know it must be a simple fix I'm not aware of can anyone Help

I’m currently having problems printing with my Lexmark Z32 color inkjet printer. My computer has Windows ME. I’m using a parallel (lpt1) port. When I send something to print, I get either one of these error messages:

“Lxaestmn not responding”
“Spool32 caused error in Lxaejnll.dll”

There are times when I cannot get the control panel up at all, or when I do, the panel only shows up partially. I cannot check the cartridge levels, clean the nozzles, or print a test page or anything else that is in the Control Panel.

I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the printer driver (the one I received with my printer and a new one I downloaded from the web), and I’ve also removed and reinserted the printer cable and power cord – this hasn’t solved the problem.

Does anyone have any suggestions about solving this problem?

I own a Lexmark P6250. I used 32/35 cartridges and they worked fine. They just ran out so I bought 34/35. They're supposed to be high yield & last twice as long. The user's guide said these numbers were OK to use. I tore off ALL the tape on both cartridges. I triple checked. I put the 34 black on the left and the 35 colored on the right. I did everything as usual & I received a 1203 error message. (Short in cartridge) I unplugged the printer and reinstalled both cartridges and keep getting the 1203 error. I have no idea what to do??? I am unable to use my printer because of the error. It's only a 2005 model, so I shouldn't be having any trouble. Please help ASAP!!!

I recently purchased a Lexmark P6250. I do like it but when I refilled the black cartridge and replaced it the printed recognized it as an old cartridge and wouldn't reset the level of ink. my last lexmark would ask if it was a new cartridge.
how does it know that this is the same cartridge that i just removed and is there any way to override this ??

LOL! "My dog ate my installation disc, what do I do?" What warm intelligent responses? This thread solely exists for people too stupid to start their own thread or do a site search for their particular problem. Most of their problems have been addressed innumerable times in the 100,000+ posts on the forum. Notice there are NO responses. You think anyone will read this response? No, they'll just keep on posting after this and keep getting no responses. They're pretty much beyond help anyways. That's why all the ripoff repair centers exist.

I own a Lexmark X75 all-in-one printer which came with my Dell (approx 3 years old). It has been problem-free up until a week or so ago.
Initially, I experienced "communication" problems so I uninstalled and reinstalled and that seemed - for the moment to work. Now, however, when I try to print a document, it goes through the motions and "sounds" fine, says "printing complete", but the page comes out blank. The color cartridge works fine; problem is just with the black. Any suggestions or am I destined to buy a new printer? Thanks in advance.

I can not believe a company will release a printer without a cord to connect to a PC that isn't bluetooth enabled, and comes with only one of two cartridges needed to print. WTH are these people thinking? I would smack silly the salesman that sold me this garbage...I am trying to do someone a favor, now I gotta run back out to the store and buy stuff that should be in the box for one, and two, the salesman should have mentioned to the purchaser...drivers won't install without the printer hooked up...argh I don't like this already.
