Issue When the printer comes up with an error code on the front panel, we may have to perform the service test(s) related to the error code. Sometimes when we enter into service/diagnostic mode and try to perform a test, the printer may come up with system error 79:04 (non-continuable generic error). When this occurs in diagnostic mode, it is not likely possible to analyze it by pressing front panel keys (e.g., up arrow and cancel); the printer will likely be hung/stuck with the error. Solution To overcome this issue, ensure that no data cable is connected to the printer (Network/USB/Fire Wire). For proper use of the diagnostic menu, the printer should be in a stand-alone state (only connected to power). Once it is confirmed that the printer is in stand-alone mode, then enter back into service/diagnostic mode and perform the test(s) required.

To clear the fax flash memory you will need to enter diagnostic mode. Use the following steps.
1. Press the menu key, the * key, and then the # key. The LCD will read SERIAL NUMBER. 2. Press the up arrow once. The LCD will read UTILITIES. 3. Press the checkmark button. Press the down arrow until Erase EFS. Then press the chechmark button. 4. The unit will now erase the fax memory then reset itself to a ready state.
This will erase any faxes that may be blocking the memory.

How do i reset me lexmark 5070 printer after i used a refill for ink

  • Launch "Printer Solution Center." You should have installed this program when you installed your Lexmark printer. Click on the Start button and selecting "All Programs." The menu command or shortcut for this program is located under the "Lexmark" folder. Click on it. If you do not see this program for some reason, insert the installation CD (provided in the printer box) into the CD/DVD-ROM drive. Follow the on-screen prompts to install the program.

    Step 2
    Click on the tab that says "Maintenance" on the top menu.

    Step 3
    Click on the button titled "Install a new printer cartridge."

    Step 4
    Hit "Next" to launch "Print the Alignment page" window.

    Step 5
    Hit the "Print" button. This will reset your ink cartridges. You should be able to see a correct reading of the ink levels on your Lexmark printer.

    Step 6
    Repeat this process until you successfully reset the ink cartridges. Sometimes, it may require multiple attempts to complete this task

    if you want to know how to reset the complete thing then...
    Resetting a Lexmark printer
    You will firstly need to switch off your printer. Then simultaneously press the RETURN and READY keys while switching the printer on. This will take you to the Diagnostics Mode. The display unit will show the message 'Performing self test'. Choose 'Maintenance count'. Reset the count to make it zero. Then select the RETURN key and go back Diagnostics Mode. Then you can reset the printer to go back to the normal mode.

    hope this works for you...

    Prints one or to pages then stops. Have to reset computer to get it to work. No test doesn't work. It is like it runs out of memory.

    Try to run a test for continuous print test page in diagnostics mode. To enter the Diagnostics mode:
    1. Turn off the printer.
    2. Open the front access door.
    3. Turn on the printer while pressing and holding Cancel .
    4. Close the front access door once the Error light displays. Print the menu page by pressing and holding Continue until all of the lights flash. Follow the instructions on
    the menu page to access the menu items.

    Continuously print pages containing cross lines, printer information, and margin settings. Press and hold until the Continue button lights flash to begin. Press Cancel to stop.

    Make sure he selects the "Cont Prt Simplex Tray 1" option

    I can not get it into service mode.

    There is not a "diagnostic mode" for the neptune washer.
    All tests and functionality are done at each setting using the timer (except the tach circuit)
    What is the problem you are looking to diagnose??

    I have a lexmark x6570 all in one printer. I recently restored my pc and I unistalled my printer. Then I reinstalled it again. Now the WIFI light is blinking orange.

    If the printer is blinking with a orange lights means that the printer is not connected to your wireless network. Some possible solutions:

    Check the wireless connections (If you've restored your computer you have to set the wireless connections again)
    Check the access point
    Move your computer or printer to reach the access point
    Try adjusting the antennas
    Make sure the Key Web keys are correct.
    You will find more help here:

    SEE PAGE 146

    Another blinking situations (not wireless related)

    If the printer is blinking in a slow mode, then the printer is in a sleep mode.

    Do this:

    1) Unplug the power cable from the wall outlet
    2) Wait 10 seconds and plug the cable again
    3) Press the power button to turn on your printer

    This must be fixing the problem
