Reset the network settings only if one of the following conditions applies to your situation:

  • The printer is being moved to a new network, or new network segment, that uses new network settings and hardware (access points, wireless routers).
  • The original printer port has stopped communicating and you would like to try reconfiguring the printer completely using the installation software.
  • You recently reformatted your computer's hard drive and reinstalled your operating system.
  • You are switching to an Ad hoc environment with different security settings.

I have a green Wi-Fi indication of the from of the printer, but it won't print. it says... Lexmark 3600-4600 series 3A82A0_P1

Try to unplug then replug the printer into the power source to reset it. This usually fixes minor communication issues. If problem continues, try to print the wireless network settings to check if your printer is still connected to the same network as your computer(s). Follow the steps in this article: How to Print the Network Settings Page on X4600 Series All-In-Ones (AIOs). If not in the same network, you may need to reset the printer. Follow the steps on how to reset the printer wireless network settings: How to Restore the Network Settings on the X4650 AIO to the Original Factory Defaults. To reconfigure printer back to your wireless network, refer to this article: How to Install the X4600 Series on Wi-Fi Network - Infrastructure Mode.

Running Leopard Snow OS 10.6.7 and Lexmark X4875 wireless printer. I can print but cannot open Lexmark work center (for scan etc).

You can download the Lexmark 4800 Series driver from the Lexmark website at However, for the Lexmark OCR scan software, that can only be installed using the install disc that came with your printer. If you lost the disc, please contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.

My lexmark z1420 has been in the loft for some time, I have switched it n anf the wi-fi light keeps flashing orange no green?

Try to print the wireless settings page to determine if your printer is still on the same wireless network as your router and computer. To print the page, follow the steps in these article on How to Print the Network Settings Page on the Z1400 & Z1500 Series Inkjet Printer; a brief explanation of its values. On the page, check the Status, SSID and also the IP address and see if it's connected to your network. Otherwise, you may need to reset your Lexmark Z1420's wireless network adapter and reconfigure it. To reset, follow the steps in this article on How to Reset the Z1400 and Z1500 Series Network Settings. Launch the Lexmark wireless setup utility to reconfigure the printer to your wireless network.
Hope this helps.

Was stuck on chineese, must,change language on lm 4800

You'll need to reset the factory defaults.
Download the User Guide (PDF) from here:
(I'm assuming you have the something in the 4800 series of printers, though you posted your question in the 5400 series section)

Go to page 56&57 and follow the directions there.

If you have the 5400 series, the link is here:
See page 123.

Can't figure out how to scan with my Lexmark 4850

Hi sher8531,

Here is a link to access the manual for your lexmark 4850 all-in-one device.

The manual says 4800 series and your printer model is 4850 so it is part of the series.

Hope this helps.
