Re: Lexmark 2480-100 stops printing after one page
Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

If the light flashing is the "light bulb like button" or the "Ready/Light" button, it means that either the printer is:
• The printer is busy receiving and processing data or printing. • The printer is printing a directory, font list, menu settings pages, or Print Quality Test Pages.
If it's Busy: • Wait for the message to clear. • Press and release Cancel to cancel the print job. • Press and hold Cancel to reset the printer.
If it's printing a directory, a font list, menu settings pages, or Print Quality Test Pages: • Wait for the pages to print. The Busy message is displayed as the pages print. The Ready light is on when the printing stops. • Press and release Cancel to cancel printing. • Press and hold Cancel to reset the printer.
Try to disconnect all cables from the printer and leave it off for about 30 seconds to clear the print job. Turn the printer back on and check the status lights, error light stop blinking then try connecting the printer back to the computer and try printing again.

Hi, Try resetting the printer to factory Defaults. First turn off the printer, then open the front cover like if you were to take the toner cartridge out. Once the front cover is open then push and hold the two buttons on the panel of the printer and turn the printer on. Make sure the front cover is open and that you are pushing the two buttons all the lights will flash and they will stop at the very bottom light and stay solid once that happens let go of the buttons and close the cover and that should reset the printer.
Usually the light blinks if you have started a print job and run out of paper...it's trying to get your attention to insert more paper before it can continue. Check and see whether there are any print jobs that weren't able to conclude and delete them. Go to 1) Start, 2) Control Panel, 3) Printers and Other Hardware, 4) View Installed Printers, 5) Lexmark 2300 Series. When you double click on the Lexmark Printer Symbol, it will open up a smaller window which will show you whether there are any print jobs that are waiting to print. If there are any, delete them. Hopefully this will solve your problem.
