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.

ORANGE WIFI LIGHT IS ON


The orange WiFi light on the printer indicates that the printer is not connected to any network or trying to get connected to a wireless network when it's blinking.
Execute the Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility and make sure to enter the correct encryption keys if your wireless network is secured.
Make sure to allow full access to all Lexmark software and printer communication processes in the program rules/permissions for your firewall.
Place your printer where it receives excellent wireless signal quality and away from other electronic devices which can cause wireless interferences (e.g. cordless phones, microwave ovens, baby monitors, garage door openers, and other wireless electronics).

  5. inside the DESKJET 3050 folder, left-click on product setup and software
  6. left-click on connect a new printer
  7. it will open up a page with options on how to connect the printer
  8. select wireless and then hit next
  9. if you are prompted to connect the usb ,please connect it
  10. if it asks you whether printer is connected to the network,select no
  11. click on next
  12. if usb is already plugged in,tick the box that says it's already plugged in

I am attempting to scan a document with my X4650 without success. The copy function works with no problems. I have used the scan function to my computer on numerous previous occassions without problems.


How is your printer connected to your computer, wireless or hardwired with a USB cable? If wireless, check the status of the WiFi light on the printer (green = connected to a network, orange = not connected to a network). Try to turn off/on your printer. Doing this usually fixes minor communication issues. This article in the Lexmark website might also help resolve your scan problem: No Communications Error When Trying to Print or Scan.

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.

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

Error 42 means scanner error. Just unplug the scanner cable and re-plug it. If thats just a connection problem then it should be back to normal. Otherwise there is a problem with the scanner itself(usually the scanner's motherboard is faulty)and you will have to send it for repairs.
