There are a few possibilities, first check to see if it is in the language mode, light on the rt. side code "L" will get you out of it. If that is OK the keyboard may be selecting the wrong keyboard. Press and hold code key, press and release the "L" key, type 001, release the code key. If this solves the problem. check the keyboard connectors. If they seem to be fully plugged in you will need a keyboard.

The carrier slides back and forth on a bar that must slide smoothly. When you open the printer up, the heads come to the center for cartridge removal, so that part of the bar is oiled. Try lightly spraying a silicone or Teflon spray or a drop of high quality machine oil to the bar where the head will go through it, smearing it along the the bar. Another part is the plastic belt with teeth on it that moves the head from side to side. If the teeth have broken off, the head won't move properly. Some of these printers have an entire head assembly where the cartridges set that can be removed after the cartridges are out. If this print head assembly is damaged or worn out you will also get the error. The head damage is usually because some one yanked jammed paper vigorously out, pushing the head out of position, or the print head was moving when something stopped the head.

Lexmark t614 manual feed how it works


  1. Push the lower release latch. The multipurpose feeder door drops open.
  2. Pull out the metal bar in the recessed area on the multipurpose feeder, far enough to accommodate the paper you will be using.
  3. Slide the paper width guide to the far right.
  4. Prepare the print material for loading:


      • Flex paper or fan envelopes back and forth. Do not fold or crease the paper. Straighten the edges on a level surface.
      • Hold transparencies by the edges and avoid touching the print side.
      • Fan the stack of transparencies to prevent jams.
      • Be careful not to scratch or leave fingerprints on the transparencies.

  5. Use the stack height limiter as a guide for stack height when loading print materials.
  6. Load one type of print material in the multipurpose feeder. Do not mix types.
  7. Slide the paper width guide over until it fits snugly against the side of the print material.
If you need further assistance please contact Lexmark Technical Support.

No, the printwheels are the same for all Wheelwriters. Make sure the letters face the roller when you put it in (pull the print hammer assy back and check for paper clips, ribbon pieces, etc. first).
