Question about Lexmark C510 Laser Printer

1 Answer

How do I fix an "Invalid Engine Code" problem with a Lexmark C510 printer? I read some where that I would have to flash it, but I can't find the firmware anywhere online. Does anyone have any ideas on where to get the firmware, and how to flash it?

Go to http support lexmark dot com /printerfirmware
unsure of link posting here but you get there by googling it
then here are the codes
Authorization Keycode for C510 Engine Code = e140p
C510 Base Code = 891004

* Engine code version is 140P
* Base code version is 891.004

you need to follow the instructions on this it is a flash firmware upgrade, not a driver! hopefully you won't have a power outage while you try this.

T614 invalid engine code how to fix


Here's an article in the Lexmark website on The Printer Displays an 'Invalid Engine Code' Message. Just click on this link: http://bit.ly/aG7vrC. Read thoroughly the article first. Follow the instructions carefully.
But I would strongly suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support for assistance, especially if there are options attached to the printer, to make sure all options will function properly.

Lexmark C510 LCD shows underlined black boxes - not wrking


Hello you can try the following, try resetting the printer doing the following. Turn the printer off, then press and hold the arrow pointing left, the select button and the go (green) button. Hold down those three buttons at the same time and power the printer back on and wait if you see a message saying Restoring Factory Defaults. When that message appears you can let go the three buttons. If the same problem of the black boxes that flash appears then you might have a problem either with the Operator Panel or Engine Board. About the price that will run you to replace this parts I don't know.

Invalid engine code


The easiest way to solve this is to work through Lexmark Technical Support.

Their web site may have the correct engine code on their site, but installation of the code can be tricky.

Are you getting a 900 Invalid Engine code message?

I have a error message on my Lexmark C510 printer that reads: Invalid Engine Code. The printer will not print. Any suggestions


Recycle the power a few times, if that doesn't work first reflash the engine firmware (you would need to contact Lexmark for that) failing that replace the engine board.
