Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer
My Lexmark X5470 is plugged into a surge protector (switched on). The printer's power button is off. The printer appears to be off. The printer is not currently connected to my laptop (though the same problem happens when it is plugged into my laptop). At random intervals (sometimes minutes/sometimes hours), the printer makes a noise. It sounds like the sound a copier makes when you turn it on -- the scanner carriage thingy goes back and forth once, or there is a thump like the paper tray resetting itself, or both. Do I have a poltergeist, or is there some setting I can fix? The printer's in our guest room, so it's really annoying when it does this at night. Thanks for any help on this one! Wow... i thought i was the only one... same exact problem and yes i also did get a heart attack as well since it would wake me up during the night... but however, no luck in finding the solution.
Have you tried plugging it in without surge protector? Also, open front cover and make sure there isn't another power switch in there. Some Lexmark's have a push power button on control panel....but have an actual physical power switch on the inside of the front cover. So it may not be fully powered off. I am a Lexmark Tech, I've seen this on a few models.

SOURCE: lexmark e320 thumping on feed
The printer may report load paper when there is enough paper present in the feeder, however this could be due to number of reasons such as if there is something which is blocking the paper to flow through the feeder anything for example, some foreign martial like a pen or a pencil, please find few steps below to fix this issue.
1. Confirm that no foreign materials are inside the machine.
2. Confirm that usable paper is set.
3. Confirm that the paper is set properly.
4. Confirm that recommended paper is used, and the number of sheets are not exciding the required number limit.
5. Adjust the paper feeder guide to the sheet size.
6. Disconnect the printer power cord as well as the printer cable form the printer.
7. Turn the printer upside down and shake the printer in order to remove any obstacle which is stuck inside the printer causing the paper jam error.
Open the printer cover and remove the cartridge and check carefully if there is any small piece of paper which is stuck inside, if so carefully remove it.
8. Disconnect the printer power cord and press and hold the power button on the printer for about 15 to 20 seconds( this will release the flee power) and reconnect the printer and check.
9. Try to rotate the wheel inside the feeder if you can reach it, to ensue that it is free enough to pull the paper.
10. Try printing with having only one sheet in the feeder and check if it does work.
Should you require any further assistance regarding the printer or even any other compute related issue please feel free to contact me I will be more than glad to assist you.

You may get this if you send the file in the wrong printer language language. For example, if you send a Postscript file to a PCL printer or sending graphics to a printer in text mode. Resetting the power clears the print buffer.
I am not sure if you mean you reset the power, then send the same file and it is ok? If so, check your cable first.
Is it on a parallel cable, serial, usb or network?

I would like to inform you that Lexmark X5470 is not a wireless printer. However, if you want it to use wireless then you should have a Lexmark N4050e 802.11g Wireless Print Server.
