Check out the device Manager if not showing any mark against USB printer device, check the Printer port and any related entries.
Let me know after this.. If you are using Vista then it may trouble you to connect printer.

My wi fi orange light is blinking on my lexmark x4650 printer


The blinking WiFi light on your printer indicates either your printer is trying to communicate with your wireless network or your printer is not connected at all. For a quick fix, try to disconnect your printer from the power outlet. Power cycle your router and reboot your computer. Then, power on your router first, then your printer and lastly your computer. Check the WiFi light on your printer. If it goes to a solid green, that means you are connected back in your network. If not, you may reset your printer's wireless network adapter to its default settings. From the printer operator panel, press the Setup button > Network Setup > Reset Network Adapter to Default. The WiFi light on your printer will momentarily turn off then back on solid orange. Then try to run the Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility on your computer to reconfigure your printer to connect to your wireless network.
I hope this helps.

Blinking orange light where tghe wifi is


The light indicates that the printer's trying to connect to a wireless network. If the blinking wifi light has been going on for quite some time now but connection is still not going through, you will need to reset the printer's wireless network adapter. To reset the network adapter on Lexmark X6570, press Settings button > Network Setup > Wireless Setup > Reset Network Adapter to Factory Defaults. The wifi light will momentarily turn off then on and should be solid orange then. Try to reconnect the printer for wireless connection.

I have a lexmark x6570 all in one printer. I recently restored my pc and I unistalled my printer. Then I reinstalled it again. Now the WIFI light is blinking orange.


If the printer is blinking with a orange lights means that the printer is not connected to your wireless network. Some possible solutions:

Check the wireless connections (If you've restored your computer you have to set the wireless connections again)
Check the access point
Move your computer or printer to reach the access point
Try adjusting the antennas
Make sure the Key Web keys are correct.

Another blinking situations (not wireless related)


If the printer is blinking in a slow mode, then the printer is in a sleep mode.

Do this:

1) Unplug the power cable from the wall outlet
2) Wait 10 seconds and plug the cable again
3) Press the power button to turn on your printer

This must be fixing the problem
