Despite being plugged in and the green LED light on, no display on printer

My lexmark x5470 is plugged in, the green LED light is on (on the housing that the cord plugs into on the back of the printer). Inside there is a red light on. BUT there is no display, the printer doesn't respond to the power button, and appears unable to power up. Your thoughts?

I have the same model (about a year old) but there are no lights visible on the back of my printer (neither red or green). Have you contacted the Lexmark tech advice website about this problem? They may take a few days to respond but there are numerous possibilities in trying to locate the fault (probably in the power circuitry) and it might have to take it to a repair shop to get it tested (if it is not under warranty).

Can not get power to come on

Try to unplug the power adapter of the printer. It's located at the back and check if the LED light on the adapter is on. If not, then the adapter is defective.

If it's on, try to plug the adapter back in and make sure that it's plugged all the way in. If it doesn't resolve the problem, try to plug in the printer to a different power outlet.

My lexmark x5470 does not turn on, and only a red light bright inside near the print injectors. Thank You.

Try to rebrick you printer by pulling out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds. This will reset your printer.

If that doesn't help, try to plug your printer into a different known working power outlet.

If problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

No power

Unplug the power adapter from the printer. The power adapter is the rectangular black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. Leave the power cord attached to it with the other end plugged in straight to the power outlet in the wall. Bypass any surge device or power strip. There should be a green LED light on around the adapter's contacts. If LED is off, properly secure the power cord. If that doesn't help, either the power adapter or the power cord is the problem. If LED is on, plug it in the correct position back in the printer and properly secure it. If printer won't automatically power on, press the power button. If that doesn't help, the printer itself is the problem. I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support to further investigate the problem.

The power button on the machine will not come on but there is power supply in the charger as indicated by the green light and it is the same in whichever socket i try.

Great job on checking the green light on the power adapter's LED. Try these steps. Bypass any surge device or power strips. Plug printer straight to the wall power outlet. Try to make sure that you are plugging the power adapter in the correct position in its slot behind the printer. Plug it hard. If it won't automatically turn on, press the power button on the printer. If this doesn't help at all, I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support to further investigate the problem. I hope I can assist you more on this.

How do I get my X5470 to print? I moved to a new house and plugged in my computer and m y printer and cannot get the printer to work. In the move I lost the printer disc and I have been downloading but...

Here is the link for the printer drivers:

Before installing any of these drivers, remove any previously installed printers in your printers and faxes related to this printer model. Then install the new drivers per Lexmark instructions and retest the printer.

Hello there:
what this is refering to is that the cartridge is either not the right one for the printer or the device is having a problem with that cartridge i would remove the cartridge and verify that it is the right one that goes in their and also since youare having the cartridge out i would clean out the contact area to get rid of the old ink that may be sitting on the contact areas ok
best regards Michael

Are they plugged in the right direction? Sometimes those card readers won't let you know that you plugged that card in wrong.
