Yes you can, but you need to lock that ip in your router to so its always goes to your printer.

Just make sure that your router dosent use that ip for it self, the usal ip for a router is or, but you never know. Check it to be shure!

Did you actually unplug the machine and back in? That works sometimes. Also note that Lexmark is very good about helping and will sometimes send a new machine for free (the profits from the ink cartridges are the money makers for them) Call them.

All front panel lights blink

This light sequence means that the printer has a service error, and printing has stopped.

Please Press Continue button (green button) twice to see the secondary code. The secondary error code will help locate the problem. Please take note which light will be flashing for this will reveal what problems you have on the printer.

For further assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support.

My Lexmark E250DN said it needed a new Photoconductor so we replaced and it still says we need a new photo conductor, How do I fix this?

Whenever you replace the photoconductor unit, remember to reset the PC counter. With the printer powered on, open the front door/cover. Press and hold the cancel button until all the lights flash. This indicates that the photoconductor page count has been reset. Hope this helps. Thank you for choosing Lexmark.

I changed the toner on my Lexmark E250dn and now it has the "!" light on all the time and won't print. It's a new cartridge what is going on?

"!" means error.

Try removing cartridge and installing it again and might be one of the cartridge missing.

Try operating manual. Might helps, there are lots of reason for the error

Follow the link on dispute about wrong cartridge due "Toner cartridge region mismatch"

Hope this helps

you need to reset the counter. the new pcu should have come with instructions to do this. 1. Turn off the printer. 2. Open the front cover. 3. Press and hold the Continue button (Big silver button with Diamond shape symbol) and turn the printer on. 4. Hold the button down until the last light (error light) is on solid, release the button and close the front cover. 5. When the cover is closed, all the top 3 lights should be on solid. 6. Press the cancel button (triangle symbol) 4 times very slowly until you see the toner low light (second light from top) on solid. 7. Press the continue button and wait until you see the light sequence. 8. Press the cancel button and wait until you see the light sequence. 9. Finally power off the printer and power it back on to exit the configuration mode.

Lexmark e250dn printer, toner light is flashing, new cartridge

Could be photoconductor at end of life.

You shoul still be able to do a printer test print (press the arrow button).

Look on the printed pagesfor Toner AND Photoconductor.

These show as OK when new or very low count, and 100% when fully used.

If the toner is showing as 100% when you've just replaced it, either the chip is faulty, the wrong one, or if the cartridge is a remanufactured one possibly nor been replaced.

Bulb sign light is flashing. Hence printer doesn't print

Well I kept trying to find out the solution as I don't have any user's guide with me and finally I got a hint. I just reinstalled drivers & related software which solved the problem. Printer is new
there cann't be any other type of problem like toner or developer etc. So this is a very positive approach to reinstall the software.

Reinstall the drivers and see if it works.

Otherwise unplug the printer from the power and leave it without power for 10 minutes. Than plug it back in and let me know if it helped.
