My z615 lexmark printer light blinks continuously when the power is on. I cant print documents

    Printer light blinking there is no obstruction and ink cartridge is properly inserted

  • landt2009 May 11, 2009

    Printer light blinks as soon as power is switched on, whether connected to computer or not. It's a continuous blinking. No response to power button at all. Opening the front cover has no effect- the cartridges don't slide into view like they should. Nothing prints, although the computer can see the printer and will send documents to it.

    Also, my printer is actually a Lenovo 3000 series installed on Vista. Since this blinking light appeared, both my Vista and my linux laptop see the printer as a Lexmark 640. These printers may be the same model under different badges, but reinstalling the Lenovo driver from the CD doesn't make any difference, nor does installing the correct Lexmark drivers from the Lexmark website.

  1. First count the number of times the light on the front of your printer flashes.
  2. Then refer to the table below for information about the error condition and recommended recovery procedures.

    Number of Flashes Error Condition Error Recovery 2 Carrier Stall:
    The movement of the print cartridge carrier has been obstructed. Remove any objects blocking the carrier path.
    4 Print Incomplete:
    The print cartridge carrier stopped in the middle of a print job due to obstruction. Remove any objects blocking the carrier path.
    12 Cartridge Short:
    The printer has detected a short circuit in a cartridge.
    1. Turn the printer off.
    2. Open the front cover.
    3. Turn the printer back on.
    4. Remove the color cartridge.
    5. Close the cover. If there are no flashing lights, the color cartridge is short-circuited.
    6. Remove the black cartridge and then reinsert the color cartridge.
    7. If there is no error indicated by flashing lights, the black cartridge is short-circuited.
    8. If you continue to receive an error indicated by flashing lights, both cartridges are short-circuited.

I have a Z615 lexmark printer. when I try to print , it clunks and the green light starts to flash twice repeatedly. the message then comes up saying check connections, paper etc and try again. I do this...


The flashing light could indicate either a communication problem between one of your cartridges and the printer, a short in one of the cartridges, paper jam or the cartridge carrier has stalled. Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:


1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Make sure there are no foreign objects or debris in the feeder.

2. Open the printer cover and remove both the cartridges.

3. While the cover is open, ensure there are no paper jams and the cartridge carrier is free from obstructions.

4. Close the printer cover.

5. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first.

7. Close the printer cover and check the light status.

8. If light on printer is normal, open the printer cover and reinsert the other cartridge. Check the light status.

9. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the light to flash with a new cartridge. You can also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.

10. Load some paper. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

How do I correct this printing problem? My colored letters on the page print. Black print doesn't print onto the paper. I have a lexmark z615 printer.


Try to clean the print cartridge nozzles. On your computer, open the Lexmark Solution Center by going to the Start menu > Programs / All Programs > Lexmark Z600 Series > click the Maintenance tab > under Select Maintenance tool, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks > click Print. The printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them.
If that doesn't help, remove the black cartridge and try to manually wipe the cartridge nozzles with a slightly moistened soft cloth to clean it from dirt and clogs. After wiping the nozzles, reinsert the cartridge into the printer. Print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If the problem continues, try to insert a different known working black cartridge to identify if it's a faulty cartridge issue.
If you still need assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center.

It could be the Print Spooler service on your computer. Make sure the service is running. - Browse to Start -> Run... and type in "NET STOP SPOOLER" (this will stop the print spooler service)


- type in "NET START SPOOLER" (this will restart the print spooler service)
Try to print again.

Lexmark e260d printer 4th light orange is continuously flashing. New toner cartridge was installed. Not printing


If the blinking light is on Toner Low (4th light starting from left), press and release the Continue button (green button) to clear the light sequence and continue processing the print job. If the light is still blinking, the photoconductor is almost full and should be replaced.

For further assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support

Lexmark E260dn toner light is still on after changing the toner cartridge


Toner light is ON, I would assume that the light is solid and not blinking. You can press and release to clear the light sequence and continue processing the print job. With the printer turned off, remove the toner cartridge and shake it to extend its life. Check the replacement toner cartridge if it is the one suitable for your region.


If the blinking light is on Toner Low, press and release the Continue button (green button) to clear the light sequence and continue processing the print job. If the light is still blinking, the photoconductor is almost full and should be replaced.

For further assistance, please call Lexmark Technical Support.
