    My Lexmark X5150 won't turn on either. I have checked the connections, the cable, the plug fuse, and have tried connecting to different power outlets, taken out and re-inserted the power box, and have used an alternative power cable, but nothing works. The box does feel warm. I telephoned Lexmark's tech support and was told that since I bought the printer more than a year ago it is not covered by their support and I might as well throw it away.

Please follow the instructions given below to troubleshoot the power issue:

1. Connect the printer directly to the power outlet. Surge protectors can actually draw power away from the printer. If this fails, please try multiple power outlets to ensure your specific outlet is not damaged, and make sure the printer is not connected to the PC while testing the unit.
2. When trying to power on the printer, feel the power supply box (if there is one) and note whether or not it is warm. If it is warm, the problem is not in your power supply, but most likely in your printer. If it is cold, the power supply might be defective.
3. Ensure you have the correct power supply connected to the printer.
4. If you have access to a voltmeter, please ensure that the power supply is giving out the correct amount of voltage (most of our printers use 30 volts output).

There is no green light on my printer


If you are encountering power problems with your printer, please go through the following checklist:
  • Make sure the power cord is plugged in securely and directly to the power outlet. Power surge protectors can draw power away from the printer.
  • Disconnect the power cord from the power outlet and the back of the printer and then reconnect it.
  • Check the power supply box (if there is one) to see if it is warm or cold, as there could be a defective power supply issue.
  • If there is access to a voltmeter, test the power supply to ensure that it registering the correct amount of voltage (most Lexmark printers have a 30Volt output).
  • Make sure the correct power supply is connected to the printer.

When turning on power, light blinks and clicking sounds, but printer acts like it is stuck and will not turn on


Try this approach instead:
  1. Pull out the power supply from the printer - that's the black box where the power cord is plugged in on the back of the printer.
  2. Open the printer cover.
  3. Hold the solid white strip that connects from the carrier assembly to the ink cartridge carrier and gently slide the cartridge carrier to the center of the printer.


  4. Remove the cartridges.
  5. Close the printer cover.
  6. Re-insert the power adapter into the printer.
  7. Re-insert the cartridges when printer prompts.
  8. Try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.
If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Printer won't turn on and AC Power Adapter plug is making a humming noise.


hi

if the AC adapter is humming, refrain (stop) from using it !

the adapter is physically damaged and the internal transformer has been dropped several times to make such a noise.
you will have to purchase a new AC adapter, p/n should be and it should cost about $10-$15

THE POWER CABLE GET VERY HOT AND THE ON/OFF LIGHT BLINKING


Unplug then replug the power adapter of the printer. The power adapter is the rectangular black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. Make sure to plug printer to a power outlet with the correct power specification. Bypass surge devices or power strips. If problem continues, unplug printer from the power source and contact Lexmark technical support to further investigate the problem. Thanks.
