    What You Will See

    When all the lights on the printer's operator panel blink at the
    same time, the printer is displaying a primary service error. This
    indicates that something has failed in the printer. In order to
    determine what has failed in the printer, you will need to obtain the
    secondary error code.

    Obtaining the Secondary Error Code

    Press the button
    twice to see the secondary code. Match the sequence of blinking lights
    to the list of secondary error codes listed in the table below.

    KEY: = Light is flashing

    Secondary Codes ("x" can be any number from 0 to 9)







    Toner Low

    Load Paper

    Paper Jam


    How to Proceed

    Connect the secondary error code you obtained with the list of meanings and possible solutions listed below.

    • A 90x error is a software error. Click here for more information.

    • A 91x error indicates a problem with the DC motor or the transfer roller. The printer will require service to correct the issue. Please see Additional Assistance below for more information.

Hi, My Lexmark E232 printer is on but will not print. The light second from the bottom is orange. Help!!

That second from the bottom orange light indicates a paper jam. Press Continue to resume printing once all the jammed pages are cleared from the paper path. Press Continue twice quickly to see the secondary error code. See "Secondary error codes" on page 69 of the user manual for more information.

I have a MacBook, and a Lexmark E232 laser printer. It has worked fine for several years but all of a sudden when I try to print the light for the light for a paper jam comes on. I have cleared it, and...


The problem is that the printer thinks that there is a paper jam inside the printer. What could be happening is that there was a paper jam the paper was pulled out but the actual sensor that detected the paper probably got damaged, either broken or malfunctioning. In this case try the following, turn off the printer and open the front cover. Then press and hold down the two front buttons while having the cover open and turn the printer on. Then wait untill the bottom light stays on solid then release the buttons that should reset the printer. If after that the paper jam error does not go away then you are probably looking at a damaged sensor. To fix that you will have to take it in to have it service.
Hope it helps.

Printer not printing

If "ready" and "toner low" lights are both on, your problem is probably photoconductor. You must reset your printer. Turn on the printer, open front door and press "cancel" button until all lights cycle on the operator panel, than release it and close front door.

Frequent jam in Lexmark E232

This can happen a lot if you're using very light weight paper.  Also, if the paper is not flat it can jam up too.  Best thing you can do is get yourself some higher quality paper and keep it in a air tight tub after you open it.
