It seems there is a possibility of a problem with the printer itself, or perhaps the cartridges. You should first self-test the printer. Since we are unsure where the problem exists, we must do eliminative troubleshooting to rule out parts of the printing system. The self-test allows us to rule out software and the cable by testing the hardware by itself. Please note that this is not a "fix," but rather a diagnostic test to determine if your hardware is at fault.

Please disconnect and then reconnect the power supply on the printer and make sure it makes a setup noise when the cable is reattached. Will the printer perform a form feed with paper loaded when the purple/silver button is pressed?

Next, I'd like you to attempt this printer self-test by following the steps given below:

1. Make sure the printer is off.
2. Press and hold the "Color Copy" button.
3. While holding the "Color Copy" button, press and release the "Power" button to turn the power on.
4. Wait for the "Power" light to flash off and on.
5. Release "Color Copy" button.

The self-test should at least print out a set of either black or color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously). Should this test fail, try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with only the color cartridge installed. (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.
If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, let us know.

My printer is malfunctioning. nothing prints


It is likely clogged nozzles in the ink cartridges. Try the nozzle cleaning utility in the Lexmark Solutions Center (installed with the drivers) several times. If it does not correct the problem, but you can get even the faintest lines to print, you will have to replace the cartridges. If it doesn't help at all, you could always try replacing the cartridges anyway.

I know they are expensive. So if it helps, The Fine Print offers refurbished cartridges for a lot less and will even give you a little credit to recycle your used-once cartridges.

Copies are blank


This is most probably a problem with the laser unit on the printer. Try cleaning/replacing it. You will need to take it to a reair agent.

The printer can't handle the data it received and flush it out of its buffer. Goto Menu->Settings->Postscript Settings and turn "Print PostScript Erro" on. When the same print job prints, you should get a page printed out telling you what the printer doesn't like. You may also want to try forcing the printer into Postscript mode. Your PS file probably contains a PJL to set the device to PS mode before it prints. When the printer expects PCL data and received PS data(or vise versa), you can get this behaviour
