Re: Printer will not operate.

With this model, it is a Toner cartridge, you need to be more specific in what the error is.

Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.

Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage.
Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now

If that does not work then follow the next step.

Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

Lexmark C510 LCD shows underlined black boxes - not wrking

Hello you can try the following, try resetting the printer doing the following. Turn the printer off, then press and hold the arrow pointing left, the select button and the go (green) button. Hold down those three buttons at the same time and power the printer back on and wait if you see a message saying Restoring Factory Defaults. When that message appears you can let go the three buttons. If the same problem of the black boxes that flash appears then you might have a problem either with the Operator Panel or Engine Board. About the price that will run you to replace this parts I don't know.

Sounds like your photocoductor is at lifes end. You can reset it by doing the following
1. Turn the printer off.
2. open the front cover
3. hold down the cancel X button while turning on the power and keep holding down until all lights stop flashing. Then let go of the x button and all lights should start to flash, close the front cover...and it should reset. You may have to turn the printer off and then back on once to be sure it is reset.

If this is a new printer, chances are you may have left a piece of orange tape some where in the printer, otherwise you may have to remove the transfer belt, power the printer on and wait for it to say that it is missing, replace the belt and power on again, should fix it.

My lexmark x1240 will not print in color


After disconnecting the cables from the printer and restarting the computer I would suggest removing all printer related software from Add/Remove programs in the Control Panel. After that I would suggest downloading the latest drivers by following the directions below.

You should be able to get the drivers here. Just enter your exact printer model in the Search by printer model field and press Enter.

Click the Download Driver link and choose your operating system in the Select Windows field. Then on the next page, choose the Download Now link on the right.

On the next page you may see a yellow security banner at the top of the browser. If so, click it and choose Download File. After that, choose Save to start the download. After the download completes you can double click the file to start the installation.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

I have a Lexmark and it says that there is "No Loaded Paper" some times and when you click ok it keeps saying it. If the power light is flashing on the printer - try this suggestion.


  1. Press the power button (Which will turn off printer.)
  2. Wait till flashing stops and printer is completely off.
  3. Press the same button which will turn on the printer.
  4. The Printer should automatically go back to printing.
  5. If it does not - Manually try printing by your self.
