Lexmark 6500 orange blinking light

Blinking orange on the WiFi light means one of the following:
  • The printer is out of the range of the wireless access point (wireless router)
  • The printer is trying to communicate with the wireless access point but the wireless access point is turned off or not working properly.
  • Either the configured printer of the wireless access point has been turned off and back on, and the printer is trying to establish communications with the network.
  • The wireless settings of the printer may no longer be valid.
You may refer to these articles from the Lexmark website to fix the problem:- Wireless & Network Communication Issues with 2008 Lexmark Inkjet Products- How to identify a Wireless Communication Problem and Resolution Tips
I hope this helps.

Status light flashing -- no communication with the printer

Please follow the instructions given below:

1. Disconnect the USB cable and the printer power cable.
2. Please disconnect the power supply from the back of the printer.
3. Then remove the cartridges from the printer.
4. Please reconnect the power supply back and turn on the printer.
5. If lights are blinking then printer encoder strip is most likely the problem. Unplug the power from the printer. Open the front cover and move the cartridge carrier to the center. You should see a white ribbon cable, a thin plastic strip and a black belt with teeth.
6. The thin plastic strip is the encoder strip. It rides in a sensor on the back of the cartridge carrier that you will not be able to see. Reach in with the first finger of either hand and carefully strum the strip as if playing a guitar.
7. The strip will need to be lowered slightly and brought towards you slightly. Please be careful not to break the strip or your printer will not function. Once you believe the strip is set correctly, plug the power back and let us know if the lights are still blinking.
8. If you cannot repair the strip, please let us know so that we can assist you further.
Please Note: Fixing the encoder strip is a delicate procedure. During the troubleshooting, if the strip breaks, you will not be able to use the printer.
9. However, if lights are not blinking then try inserting one cartridge at a time and check if you can see any lights blinking. If light blinks with one cartridge then that cartridge is defective.
