Will turn on and not off with the same button? Try the power operation with printer disconnected from the PC. If the problem persists when in this state, it is a problem on the IC controller and is not a repairable item due to cost. Printers are cheap these days and repairing them for anything other a gear jam is not cost effective.

Re: On/Off switch will not turn power off
Ok, a really brief description you got there, so the answer will be big.
There is two main things you go to do. One on your PC and the other is on another person's PC.
first, you got to test your printer on another PC to isolate the problem. If it worked then it's a problem in your Printer driver, uninstall reinstall or update.
If it still has the same problem, then you have to do the same on your PC, uninstall your Printer Driver, reinstall then if still has the problem upgrade your software.
Still not working? you have to open-up your Printer, unscrew the screws on the outside then check the board if there is a burned IC or resistor. Maybe something you can barely see.
The last option is for a technician to check it.

The Epson works fairly well with XP. It is to be connected to
a parallel port, usually LPT1
using an IEEE certified parallel printer cable. The computer BIOS
setting is best set for standard parallel port, SPP, bi-directional port
or similar. If possible, do not set it to ECP or EPP or ECP & EPP.
The only native driver for the printer is on the Windows CP CD. Install
using the Add Printer wizard.
The Epson LQ-860 drivers, and a few others, can be used. Using these
drivers, you will discover that the printer actually has some resident
fonts (in printer ROM) that are not accessible from the Stylus
driver. However, with this driver, graphics printing quality is
Windows 9x drivers _cannot be used_.

Here's a fix for Windows Vista Update Error 8007000b and it works (I tried it)
1. Open an Administrator command prompt by right clicking on Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt and selecting "Run as Administrator" and clicking "Allow" for the elevation prompt (or use run->cmd)
2. In the command prompt, type the command below cd\
3. Then type fsutil resource setautoreset true c:(If your vista installation is in C: drive)
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
check your windoes firewall and antivirus firewall .
also check ping to your network printer.

check your printer and laptop gate way is same.
run this command in "run" iss "ping 192.168.15.1" ehchange your printer ip in this command.
Information gathered: Basically the printer carrier has stalled.
Lexmark documentation states that you should turn off your printer and wait a few seconds and turn the printer back on.
Restarting the spooler will sometimes do the trick as well.
Go to start, run
type: <cmd> without <>
Command prompt will open up.
Type: net stop spooler
The spooler will say it stopped successfully.
Type net start spooler
The spooler will say it started successfully.
Hope this helps!
