Lexmark z1420 wireless issue

Hi there,
i have just today purchased a new lexmark z1420 wireless printer. im running an imac with tiger OS and our home network is through an airport extreme router. 
the wifi indicator on the printer is flashing amber after the setup, which according to the manual means there is an issue with its access to our home network. i then realised that i stuffed up the ssid when entering it in the intial setup however i cant figure out how to get back to that stage so as to fix the ssid and get this thing working!!
any help is greatly appreciated. cheers

Re: lexmark z1420 wireless issue

I found out after alot of searching to perform a hard reset, put the printer into standby mode ie, flashing power button, hold it for two seconds and then release

the open the printer cover
then press and hold the power button for at least 30 seconds, try 40 if in doubt (yes your finger does become numb at this point)

Let go and wait 40 seconds, and it should then boot back to factory defaults so you can start again

If you do get it working wireless from a mac in infrastructure mode I would like to hear, because I have yet to manage this, connected and routed via a bt voyager 2110 wifi router.

Yes exactly, what you have said is correct, log into the router setup page, check for the wireless settings, ssid and the security code details.. nad then search for the wirell network in the printer manually, yopu would find your ssid, connect to it with the key , you would get connected..

Thw wifi in the lexmark z1420 is not turning on at all

Please try to reset your printer's wireless network settings. Refer to this article on How to Reset the Z1400 and Z1500 Series Network Settings. Once you reset the printer's network settings, the Wi-Fi light will momentarily turn off then on with orange light.
You can then run the Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility application on your computer to reconfigure the printer to reconnect to your wireless network.

My lexmark z1420 is not wireless - it used to be - what has happened?

The printer may still have the old settings from your router in its wireless network adapter. You will need to reset the Lexmark Z1420 wireless network adapter first. To do this, follow the instructions found in the article on this link: Once you'll have a solid orange wifi light again, run the Wireless Setup Utility like how you setup the printer for wireless connection for the first time. Let me know if you still need more assistance. Thanks.
