Re: lexmark x1185

You have two issues at same time. 1: your printer may have a jam somewhwere. remove all paper, and open unit cover, and see if you can find any bits of paper jammed, remember they can be minute and will still cause big problems. check thoroughly behind unit too, sometimes it helps to use a torch. When you put paper back in, only place a very thin stack, too much will cause feed problems and jams. Make sure paper rest is correctly installed too, and the paper guides either side are not pressing too tight on paper stack sides, they should sit gently beside in line with it not pressuring it. Also check if roller is even, inside and down back. Flick paper stack in fingers to separate pages and never feed bent dogeared or marked paper into unit, even a tiny little notch in it will catch. Try printing now. The scanner issue can usually be resoved by uninstalling the whole printer and reinstalling it, ensuring a thorough reset. Good luck and post back if no help.

Not printing

It insists there is a Cartridge problem on the Printer............  In this Case take out the Paper from the Paper Feed Tray........ Unplug the Power Supply from the Printer.......... Remove both the Cartridges from the Printer.......... Now take a size 10 Envelope fold it so that it should become like a thin long strip........ Now Insert that Envelope on the left side corner of the Printer and move it from right to left and left to right as fast as u can for about 10 times.......... Now Insert the Ordinary Papers onto the Printer and insert both the catridges and Turn on the Printer...... Blinking Stopped...........Issue Resolved....... Still Blinking: Remove both the Cartridges take a Paper Towel turn the catridges direction so that u can see a Copper plate with small boxes on it....... Just wipe it twice or thrice with the Paper Towel.......... Now insert it and Power on the Printer and see whether the Lights are still blinking if it is still blinking...... Contact Lexmark at 1-800-LEXMARK Good Luck.........

My Lexmark X1185 will scan but will not feed to print

You probably need to adjust the roller or do an alignment. Your owners manuel should have the info on how to do can probably clean the roller . If it shiny it will not pull up the paper. Check it out.

it does not take much to dirty up a printer even a little dust, try blowing a can of air, if that doesnt work the printer perferences might have changed either you have to thick of paper or not thick enoughtacording to your printing preferences or the page set up next time you go to print check the page setup

Lexmark X1185 won't scan.

I believe you have to push the scan button in order for it to scan and save. The copy buttons will only print either a black copy or a color copy.

It sounds like there is still paper inside. Remove all paper in the tray and if all is clear. Reload the paper and push the paper feed button. If this doesn't work unplug the printer on let it reboot.
