    Normally, a blinking power button means your PC or a Printer is in Standby mode. To wake a computer up you press the power button again. With a printer you normally press the Color button.

    Does this make sense to you?

You can check under printers if you go to control panel, check for the status of your printer. make sure it is online and there are no pending jobs on the queue.

Hope this helps

I just installed the printer and it keeps saying it is offline?


Go to system settings and select the 'Printer' option.

Right-click on the printer and enable the 'Use Printer Online' function.

Cancel all the printing jobs till that moment and redo the process.

Sometimes the 'Printer Offline' message occurs due to a 'Job Stuck' issue.

Check all network connections and functions.

Be sure the network interfaces work properly.

Turn the printer off and on to see whether the device is working properly.

Can?t print with 4650because it's offline

I know it's a little obvious, but have you checked that the printer is turned on? If you cannot see a green light, there should be a power button on the display in the bottom left. It could also be that it is not plugged into the wall, or the plug is turned off.
If it is turned on, check it is connected to your computer: if you are connecting physically or "with wires", check the wires are connected to the computer, or to the network, if that is how you're using it. (If you don't know, you are connecting directly to the computer.) if you are connecting using the wireless, check that the wireless indicator is green. If it is blinking green, it is updating; orange and it is waiting to be set up; blinking orange and either the wireless router is not close enough to the printer or it has been turned off.
If the wireless indicator is green, but not printing, try reinstalling the program that came with your printer.
If it is orange or off, go to the Lexmark wireless setup utility in your computer. (It should be in the start menu in lexmark>tools.) This facility will require you to connect the computer via cable.
If all these don't work, please see your lexmark vendor to examine your printer as it may be broken.

I installed new cartridges in my X2550 Lexmark I want to print a test page. It scanned the test page but will not print it. What do I do?

it depends on the error message why the test page won't print. If it just won't print at all, try to reseat the paper into the printer and turn off/on the printer then try to print the test page.

If it doesnt, then turn off the printer, remove cables. And then press and hold the power button on the printer for 5 seconds . Reinsert cables and turn on the printer and print the test page anew....

Printer offline and power light blinking

I had same problem. If there are no print jobs in query and you've tried powering down the printer and restarting the computer, disconnect the USB cable. If the light is still blinking when you turn the printer on, remove either the black or the color print cartridge, close the cover and if the light is still blinking install the cartridge you took out and remove the other. My black cartridge went bad apparently and when I replaced it, no blinking light.

Cant get my lexmark 4270 series going on my computer help

Go to Control Panel -> Printers. Is the printer listed here? Is the printer Online (It will say Online or Offline next to the printer tile)? If it says Offline, the computer cannot currently see the printer so check to make sure it is plugged in and turned on and that the cable is connected from the computer to the printer. If it is Online, right-click on the printer tile and select Properties. On the General tab, click on the Print Test Page button. After a few moments, the printer should spit out a test page. If this prints out, your printer is working properly. If not, let me know what error messages (if any) it displays or the overall printer behavior (blinking lights, beeps or other noises, etc).

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.
You will find more help here:


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
