HI,

Please follow the instructions given below to know exactly when the light is blinking:

1. Disconnect the USB cable and the printer power cable.
2. Please disconnect the power supply from the back of the printer.
3. Then remove the cartridges from the printer.
4. Please reconnect the power supply back and turn on the printer.
5. If lights are blinking then printer encoder strip is most likely the problem. Unplug the power from the printer. Open the front cover and move the cartridge carrier to the center. You should see a white ribbon cable, a thin plastic strip and a black belt with teeth.
6. The thin plastic strip is the encoder strip. It rides in a sensor on the back of the cartridge carrier that you will not be able to see. Reach in with the first finger of either hand and carefully strum the strip as if playing a guitar.
7. The strip will need to be lowered slightly and brought towards you slightly. Please be careful not to break the strip or your printer will not function. Once you believe the strip is set correctly, plug the power back and let us know if the lights are still blinking.
8. If you cannot repair the strip, please let us know so that we can assist you further.
Please Note: Fixing the encoder strip is a delicate procedure. During the troubleshooting, if the strip breaks, you will not be able to use the printer. We will replace the printer, only if it is under warranty.
9. However, if lights are not blinking then try inserting one cartridge at a time and check if you can see any lights blinking. If light blinks with one cartridge then that cartridge is defective.

Next, lets try to print the self test.
Begin by disconnecting the power supply from the wall (not the back of the printer) for at least "30 seconds." This is essential. Then plug the printer back in and follow these steps:
1. Press the "Copy" button.
2. Press the "Menu" button.
3. Press the down arrow button once or until the screen displays "Maintenance."
4. Press the check mark button to select the "Maintenance" menu.
5. Press the down arrow button three times until the screen displays "Print Test Page."
6. Press the check mark button to select this. The Self-Test will start printing.
The self-test should at least print out a set of either black or color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously.) Should this test fail, try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with the color cartridge installed. (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let me know.

Lexmark 6500 orange blinking light


Blinking orange on the WiFi light means one of the following:
  • The printer is out of the range of the wireless access point (wireless router)
  • The printer is trying to communicate with the wireless access point but the wireless access point is turned off or not working properly.
  • Either the configured printer of the wireless access point has been turned off and back on, and the printer is trying to establish communications with the network.
  • The wireless settings of the printer may no longer be valid.
You may refer to these articles from the Lexmark website to fix the problem:- Wireless & Network Communication Issues with 2008 Lexmark Inkjet Products- How to identify a Wireless Communication Problem and Resolution Tips
I hope this helps.

My lexmark all in one 7350 will not print


I suggest you unplug the printer from your computer. Then uninstall the software by clicking on Windows logo Start button > Programs > Lexmark 7300 Series folder > Tools > Uninstall. Then restart pc. Once pc's ready, check if your Vista is running on 32-bit or 64-bit by clicking on Windows logo Start button > right click on Computer > Properties. For the software, I suggest you use the updated driver from the Lexmark website. Click on this link: http://bit.ly/9G6ifO (for 32-bit) or this link: http://bit.ly/cUkJmB (for 64-bit). Download and install the software. Follow the instructions on the software. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave it as a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

Scanning slides into computer


From Lexmark's website:
To scan negatives, slides, and transparencies, you need to place the original between the light source and the sensor array so that the light passes through them before hitting the sensor. However, Lexmark scanners place the light source and the sensor array on the same side in order to catch the light as it reflects off the original. Accordingly, in order to scan originals of this type, you need a transparency adapter (also called a TPA or TPU), which is a back light that replaces the scanner cover.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Printer cartridge cradle is stuck-hp photosmart 7350


I just had the same problem...and this is what I did to get it working...

Turn off your printer. Open the top. Push the cartridge thingie off to the side (if possible) and then take QTips and cleaned the silver bar the cartridge moves on. Got a lot of ink off of it.
Should run after that.
