Here is the user guide, although I did not see flashing lights fix, It gives the control panel errors and it also shows you how to reset the printer on page 123:

Lexmark X3470 All-In-one Scanner keep on saying it Busy


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


Should you still need assistance, please leave a comment to my response and I'll get back to you.

You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/aKlcOJ. Select your operating system, download and execute the file.

Lexmark 5400 incoming fax job wont print


from the Lexmark website:

This issue occurs when the user sends a fax using the flatbed scanner. After the first page is scanned, a message is displayed asking if another page needs to be scanned. The user options are YES or NO.
  • If the user chooses YES or NO and the fax starts to dial, they can safely press CANCEL without inducing the problem.
  • If the user presses the CANCEL button instead of answering the question, all future received faxes will go to memory instead of printing out. NOTE: There is no direct means of recovering a lost fax, but unplugging the machine and reseating the power supply will restore normal operation. An error report will be printed and provide information about the lost fax, which may allow the user to contact the sender and request that the fax be sent again.
