Lexmark e238 wont print and has error lights showing

One morning I got up and my lexmark E238 printer had error lights showing and since then wont work and I cant get info on it.

The 2 lights that show are a steady Toner and steady error light and when i click the continue button quickly (per instructions from lexmarks website) the "secondary code" of steady toner, paperjam and error light all are steady. I have not changed anything such as cartridge and everything was working flawlessly for the longest time and the night before!

Any help would be appreciated!

    I know this has been on here for awhile but i decided to help

    First of all the lights are listed in the user manual for the printer. From what your described the problem looks like it is a paper jam

    for more information in regards to the lights on your printer:
    http://www.fixya.com/support/p306850-lexmark_e232_laser_printer/manual-867/page-52

    There is also information on how to get the jam out. If the printer has no jam but the light is still on try restarting the printer.

    Sorry for the delay in responding.

    Are you using a factory new Lexmark cartridge or do yo have a refilled cartridge or a cartridge from another company?

      Turn off the Printer and Unplug it from the Power Supply.
      Remove the Cartridges from the Printer!!!!!
      On the Backside of the Cartridge you would see a Copper Stripe, Wipe the Copper Stripe using a Paper Towel!
      Reinsert the Cartridges and Restart the Printer.
      Good Luck!!!

      I have a lexmark e238. Keeps showing paper jam light after cleaning rollers even though no paper is in there.


      Either paper is moving too slow through the paper path or one of your paper path sensors is not registering. Pull the paper tray out and check to make sure the little plastic sensor is swinging free. That sensor tells when the tray is empty. Follow the paper path thru the printer checking all the sensors to make sure they are "opening" and "closing".

      I need to reset my Lexmark E238, since I can't print document from a certain site that I work with. Please let me know how to do it, since I don't have the CD to reinstall. Thank you


      if it is a single file that will not print it is most likely the file, not the printer.
      some websites require postscript support to print properly
      try saving the webpage and then printing.

      That indicates that you have a paper jam in the printer. You can refer to this Quick Reference: http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/e238/eng/qref.pdf. Here's an article in the Lexmark website on How to Clear Paper Jams on a Lexmark E238, E240, E240n, E340, E342n Printer. Click on this link: http://bit.ly/dbahOF. Just read the article thoroughly. If this doesn't help, I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support for further assistance. Thanks.

      Check that WP is using the same driver and the printer is called exactly the same as it is for Word.
      Make sure that the port assignments etc are the same and that you install all printers via Windows, not in a program.
