Fax will not print: I connected the fax machine and plugged it in. It sends faxes OK. When a fax is sent to it, nothing comes out. The sending fax doesn't receive an error message, seems like all went...


Does the machine print anything? such as a directory or print when making a copy? I rather suspect it does not. When an incoming fax is recvd does the paper get pulled in and come out blank? If so your problem is with printing (or lack of it). Perform head cleaning. Also make sure the black cartridge still does not have its deal stuck on it. Post again if you still have problem.

LSU Error keeps showing


LSU stands for Laser Scanner Unit. Depending on the model this should come up only if the services used required scanning such as copy, fax sending, scanning.
nevertheless if this is a continuous message you might need to check the connectors within the scanner which I advise an field call.

it will be under reports, you can set all faxes to do a report after a fax has been sent, ill keep the terminology easy as
Brother, canon, konica blah blah all uses different terminology for it, but there is a setting in reports for user that they can turn on, it like error reporting if a fax deosnt go it will print out a error report so same thing to do with copy report.

Error codes 1201 and 1203


Hello, erorr 1203 is telling you there is one of a few issues with your cartridge/s. Check the contacts are cleaned and printheads. Make sure there are no paper jams. Reset the printer by turning it off and completely unplugging it and replugging it and turn it back on again. Clear print queue, check it is set to work offline in settings. Press copy and copy something and see if it is ok now. Error 1201 is a communication issue with data where your cartridge has stoped for one or more reasons and h eprint data was not completed or used. Try the reset to fix this too. Post back if no good. Don't forget to clear print queue.

Will not make a copy


If it won't copy, it is unlikely to handle faxes either since those functions use the same scanner. If your received faxes are coming out blank, then it is a problem with the ink system; if you can get faxes printed but not copy a document, the scanner may be at fault.
Have someone send you a fax to check this function (printing) and then try sending one back to check the scanner.
If either one fails, then hyou know where the problem lays.

I am having difficulty printing, receiving error message #1201 which is not in the manual. Re: Lexmark FAx X4270 Please provide me with a suggestion.


Hi teri,

I've seen this before and I know that once it was fixed by cycling the power a certain way. Try this:

1) Turn the printer off.
2) Unplug all of the cables.
3) Plug the power cable back in.
4) Turn the printer back on.
5) If the 1201 message on the Control Panel comes back up, try plugging the printer directly into the wall or into a different power strip. If no error message, plug the USB cable back into the printer and try printing.

It could also be a faulty AC adapter - if you have access to another compatible AC adapter try that. If the message continues, then the printer is probably defective and you should check your warranty status.

Please let me know what you come up with.

Ben
