Just to determine if the problem is a printer or PC problem, try pressing the button at the bottom of the lights 3 times quickly and see if it prints out a test page. If it does then try reloading the driver on your PC.

    Hey, sorry not to get back to you yesterday, one of those days. Yes reinstalling the printer on your PC would be great. (Make sure the connection between PC and printer is okay)
    Hope that's helpful.

Paper feeds about half way and then stops. All of the indicator lights come on.


If you get a paper jam, the Paper Jam indicator light promptsyou to clear the paper path. If the paper has just started to feed from thepaper feeder when the jam occurs, pull the paper straight up out of the paper feeder. Open and close the printer cover toresume printing. If the paper jam occurs inside the printer, remove the paper from the output bin. Turn the printeroff, then on. If this doesn't clear the jam, open the printer cover.Remove the print cartridge and cover it.For additional assistance, please contactLexmark Technical Support

The E312 is printing pages in all black. I've replaced the cartridge and cleaned it. What do I need to do to get it to stop printing all black/vey dark?


Normal 0 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

Printing document from computer


Regardless of the application, open the document, click File, then click Print and select the printer. If the printer is not listed it needs to be installed on the computer.
