The steps below should help you override the error and make the printer accept the cartridges and allow you to print.

    • 1

      Remove and replace the print cartridge. If that doesn't solve the error, move on to Step 2.

    • 2

      Remove the print cartridge from the machine.

      • 3

        Wet the end of a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol.

      • 4

        Wipe the copper colored contacts on the print cartridge with the cotton swab to clean.

      • 5

        Wipe the contacts in the printer where the cartridge sits.

      • 6

        Replace the cartridge and try a test print. If removing residue for a clean connection didn't solve the error, move on to step 7.

      • 7

        Turn off the printer.

      • 8

        Unplug the printer from the power source and leave it unplugged for 15 to 30 minutes. This will reset the printer.

      • 9

        Plug the printer back into the power source and turn it on.

      • 10

        Print a test page.

    Alignment problem error message.

    It could be due to cartridges in the printer. Try the steps below to identify and fix the problem:
    1. Make sure the printer is on.
    2. Open the printer cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-In-One is busy. Note: If the carrier does not automatically move to the center, turn off the printer or unplug the printer from the power source and then carefully slide the carrier to the center.
    3. Remove both cartridges from the carrier.
    4. Close the printer cover.
    5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in to, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
    6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.
    7. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.
    8. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
    If that doesn't help, try this approach:

    Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

    If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues with your model:

    1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
    2. Go to Programs.
    3. Go to Lexmark 4200 Series folder.
    4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

    From the Maintenance tab, select Align to fix blurry edges. Your printer will then print a page that will help align the cartridges.

    My ricoh aficio ap610n printer is giving me the error sc546. It says just to power off and then back on and if the error persists to contact service.

    simply switch it off then switch it on
    if the Problem still you need to check Paper tray i think there will be some mismatch between the Paper size and the tray
    or some Paper will be stuck in it
