Printer error

First confirm if the printer is recognized by your system,and check the printing history to see if there is a queue. If there is, delete them and restart your system. This time, make sure it\'s recognized, then resend your instruction to print.

The steps below should help you override the error and make the printer accept the cartridges and allow you to print.

    • 1

      Remove and replace the print cartridge. If that doesn't solve the error, move on to Step 2.

    • 2

      Remove the print cartridge from the machine.

      • 3

        Wet the end of a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol.

      • 4

        Wipe the copper colored contacts on the print cartridge with the cotton swab to clean.

      • 5

        Wipe the contacts in the printer where the cartridge sits.

      • 6

        Replace the cartridge and try a test print. If removing residue for a clean connection didn't solve the error, move on to step 7.

      • 7

        Turn off the printer.

      • 8

        Unplug the printer from the power source and leave it unplugged for 15 to 30 minutes. This will reset the printer.

      • 9

        Plug the printer back into the power source and turn it on.

      • 10

        Print a test page.

    My Lexmark z2300 sends to the printer & it says it's printing, but it doesn't actually print. I've tried several file types & programs to print from but none of them work.

    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. Rebrick (pull out 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.

    Error code P03. It won't print, it doesn't make any noise when I turn it on, and I don't see any traces of paper.

    Error code PO3 is caused by Timing Disk dirty / damaged.
    Please use this methods
    1. Check the timing disk sensor located to the left of the printer
    2. Check and clean the board.
    And start to print... thanks

    When i give a print command this error apears on the paper : pcl xl error subsystem:kernel error:illegaltag operator:0xfe

    1st: turn off your printer, wait 5 minutes, turn on again. Try to print again and see if the problem is solved. If this doesn't work:
    2nd: de-install your printer from your computer, download the latest driver for your operating system, install your printer again. And if this doesn't work, download the latest HP Laserjet generic driver and install it again.
    You can find the drivers on the support page from HP, searching for the model printer that you have and select the driver for your operating system (windows xp, vista, 7..)

    My printer won't print. my computer is hooked up to it, and it doesn't give any error messages. it just doesn't do anything.

    Go to Control Panel/Printers. Right click on your printer's name, and hit Print Test Page. If printer prints a page out, then the problem is likely with the software you're using to print - make sure you have selected the right printer in the dropdown. If the printer's name doesn't show in the Printers folder of Control Panel, the driver for it has not been installed. Do so and try again.
