Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer activates on its own

The printer will go through the same routine it goes through when the power button is first turned on but it does this on its own every hour or two when the printer is not in use & the power button is turned off.

Canon mx330 printer error 5200


Try this: Press the resume button (or cancel).

If not, unplug the unit and plug it back in.

Or, try this: Open the lid so the printer moves the head to the center position and unplug the power cord. Remove the ink and head. Plug the machine back in and let it go through it's startup routine. When it's done, open the lid and reinstall the head/ink cartridges.

If this does not work, you may have a bad printhead. Printheads for Canons cost anywhere from $50 to over $100 depending on where you get them and what model the printer is.

WARNING If, during your testing, the machine suddenly dies completely (no power at all) do not purchase a new print head. Some Canon models have a bad type of failure where the printhead goes bad and shorts, which draws too much current from the main board causing the main board to blow. If you replace the printhead in a machine with a bad main board caused by this failure you will just blow the new printhead. Remember this only applies if your machine suddenly dies completely (no power at all).

Good luck.

No power to headlight or starter every thing else is working


You need to replace your starter button/right switch assembly. The starter button is a two position switch that first turns off the headlight and then activates the starter solenoid.

I have an MP530 printer - error message 5C10 is


You could try resetting the printer:

1) On the panel, press and hold the <On/Off> button until the display goes blank (approx. 1 second). If the display does not go blank, unplug the power cord.

2) Wait approx. 10 seconds, plug in the power cord (if removed in previous step), press the <On/Off> button to power on the unit.

3) Wait for the printer to cycle through its startup routine before trying another print job.

I hope this helps!

When I turn the printer on, the lamp goes RED


This is a common complaint for Zebra printers and most annoying.
It is an indication that the sensors are not snsing either the ribbon or the labels.

Perform a calibration routine for your printer, this can be fond in your user manual or go to www.zebra.com to get one.

Alternatively contact me at www.lancerlabels.co.uk and I will send you the routine when I know which printer you have.

My Hp all in one printer won't turn on. When I plug it in, all the lights turn on and go through the start up routine, but then instead of the green light coming on it all goes blank as though there is no...


You may have a bad control board and or a bad power supply. You should go to HP's website and chat with a live agent, they may be able to take you through some few troubleshooting tips. but by guess is that the system board or power supply is at fault.

Need instructions for cartridge cleaning routine


  1. Begin with the printer turned off.
  2. Press and hold down the CARTRIDGE button, then press the POWER button until the power light is on. Release the POWER button and then release the CARTRIDGE button and the Clean Test page will print.
  3. Inspect the Clean Test page and look for gaps in the nozzle test patterns. If there are no gaps, the cartridge has recovered. If there are gaps, run the Clean Test once more. If gaps still appear in the nozzle pattern test, replace the cartridge. Printing the Clean Test unnecessarily will reduce the life of the cartridge.

I have a HP Professional Deskjet 1220C. It starts off printing full colour images ok but about a quarter of the way through it starts printing in red. Please help me.


Try the following below if it continues to print in red half way through then either your ink carts have expired or something is wrong with them if you are using coral draw to print images there is know problems with that I have listed the solution to that as well. please tell the results of the test page as well please. and also I have included a few other tests please run through these. The sample page can be used as a quick check of the image quality from the black and color print cartridges. Unlike most printing, this page prints from the bottom of the page to the top for user viewing during printing.
  1. Turn the printer off and then turn it on again by pressing the POWER button.
  2. Press and hold down the RESUME button and release it when the Power light starts to blink.
The sample page can also be printed from the Toolbox (provided the Toolbox is installed) to verify that the printer is connected to the computer properly and that the printer and printer software are working properly.
  1. Double-click the Toolbox icon on the Desktop or run it from the HP Deskjet 1220C Printer program group.
  2. Select the Printer Services tab and click Print a Test Page
--------------------------------------------------------------
Printing the diagnostic page The information displayed on the diagnostic page includes the printer model, serial number, service ID (born-on date), firmware revision, total page count and last error code (see Figure 2). If an error code (hex) number is displayed, it represents the last error that occurred regardless of whether the problem that caused the error has been fixed and the printer is presently operational. To print a diagnostic page see the following:
  1. Turn the power on.
  2. Press and hold down the POWER button.
  3. While holding down the POWER button, press the RESUME button four times.
  4. Release the POWER button.
Running the pen recovery diagnostic test If printouts have incomplete text or graphics that are not corrected by cleaning the print cartridges, use the pen recovery diagnostic test. The pen recovery diagnostic test is a three-level cleaning procedure that attempts to clear blocked print cartridge nozzles. The tests can be run either from the Toolbox under Printer Services or by pressing the button sequences below. The Level 1 print cartridge cleaning is a light cleaning mode. Use this level first to clear blocked nozzles.
  1. Turn the power on.
  2. Press and hold down the POWER button.
  3. While holding down the POWER button, press the CANCEL button twice.
  4. Release the POWER button.
After running the Level 1 print cartridge cleaning routine, run the nozzle pattern test explained in the "Printing the nozzle pattern test" section below to verify that the cartridge has recovered. If no irregular gaps are present on the printout of the nozzle pattern test, the print cartridge has recovered. If there are irregular gaps in the printout, run the Level 2 pen recovery. The Level 2 cleaning is an intermediate cleaning mode to be used if the Level 1 mode does not recover the nozzles.
  1. Turn the power on.
  2. Press and hold down the POWER button.
  3. While holding down the POWER button, press the CANCEL button twice and the RESUME button once.
  4. Release the POWER button.
After running the Level 2 print cartridge cleaning routine, run the nozzle pattern test explained in the "Printing the nozzle pattern test" section below to verify that the cartridge has recovered. If no irregular gaps are present on the printout of the nozzle pattern test, the print cartridge has recovered. If there are irregular gaps in the printout, run the Level 3 pen recovery. The Level 3 cleaning is the most intensive cleaning mode that takes about two minutes to complete. Use this level as a last resort in recovering clogged nozzles. This routine uses a considerable amount of ink.
  1. Turn the power on.
  2. Press and hold down the POWER button.
  3. While holding down the POWER button, press the CANCEL button twice and the RESUME button twice.
  4. Release the POWER button.
After running the Level 3 print cartridge cleaning routine, run the nozzle pattern test explained in the "Printing the nozzle pattern test" section below to verify that the cartridge has recovered. If no irregular gaps are present on the printout of the nozzle pattern test, the print cartridge has recovered. If irregular gaps still appear in the printout, replace the cartridge. NOTE: Do not use the pen recovery tests unnecessarily or the life of the print cartridge will be shortened. Printing the nozzle pattern test This test prints a pattern to determine which nozzles, if any, are clogged or not firing and can be used to verify a successful cleaning routine (see Figure 3). Look for irregular spaces or gaps in the test pattern; these indicate faulty nozzles.
  1. Turn the power on.
  2. Press and hold down the POWER button.
  3. While holding down the POWER button, press the CANCEL button eight times and the RESUME button four times.
  4. Release the POWER button.
Printing the calibration page This test provides calibration of the print cartridges. Calibration includes print cartridge alignment and optimizing the turn-on energy for the installed color print cartridge.
  1. Turn the power on.
  2. Press and hold down the POWER button.
  3. While holding down the POWER button, press the RESUME button three times.
  4. Release the POWER button.
Eight green checks, one on each line of the printout, signify that the calibration was successful. ----------------------------------------------------- Printing the infinite H test This test prints continuous pages of the letter H and is useful for troubleshooting paper feed problems or other intermittent problems that are difficult to replicate.
  1. Turn the printer on.
  2. Press and hold down the POWER button.
  3. While holding down the POWER button, press the RESUME button eight times.
  4. Release the POWER button
  5. Press and release the POWER button to terminate the test.

Hp laserjet 1320 problem


This is an error state that is not described at HP site.

Try to do a hard reset:

1) Turn off the printer

2) Press and hold down the green GO button

3) Turn the printer on and continue to hold the green GO button for at least 5 seconds, but not longer than 15 seconds. During the process, the Attention LED will turn on.

4) Release the GO button.NOTE: If both the Attention light and the Ready LEDs turn on before the GO button is released, the cold reset procedure must be started over at step 1.

5) The printer LEDs begin cycling. The cold reset process runs until completion and the printer returns to the Ready state.

Hope it will help you
