Re: lexmark 5070 printer broke again

Its a lexmark, i had one at one time and learned the best solution to problems like this is to find the deepest well and through the thing to the bottom. go buy a HP all in one printer, its worth the money and will ease off the headache.

Your ink cartridge nozzles may be clogged. You may try to do a cleaning cartridge nozzles cycle.
Open the Lexmark Solution Center. Click on the Maintenance tab. Click on Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Click on Print. Depending on the diagonal lines results, you can click on Clean Again.

I have a Lexmark x 5070 and i no longer have the disc. My computer says it cannot find the hardware. My printer wont print

You can still download the software/driver from the Lexmark Official website (Click Here), you'll need to select the O.S. ie. Operating System. Open the link, scroll down and locate "change OS", click it and select "Microsoft",



then from the other box, select the Microsoft Windows version which is installed on your computer and then click "Filter" to proceed, follow the onscreen instructions to download.
(Note: this instruction is for microsoft windows operating system, if your computer is running another o.s. like Mac etc.. select accordingly)

Good Luck.

If you need further help, let me know with more details.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Error code 917.00

Step Action 1 Turn off the printer and let the printer sit, powered off, for one minute. 2 Power the printer back on. 3 If the 917 error does not return on power-up, try printing a few pages. If the error does not return during printing, this may have been an isolated incident. Continue using the printer as before, but pay close attention to it for the next few days to see if the error returns. 4
If the error returns on power-up, as soon as you try to print, or re-appears at a later time, inspect the transfer roller. (Click the links in the steps below for images.)

  1. Turn the printer off.

  2. Open both the lower front cover and the upper front cover of the printer.

  3. Remove the toner cartridge and place it aside.

  4. Look at the transfer roller. Make sure nothing is stuck on the roller or wrapped around it. If you find any obstruction, try your best to remove it without damaging the transfer roller or knocking the roller loose.

  5. Make sure the transfer roller is not loose or damaged. If the roller is damaged, the roller will need to be replaced. Please contact Lexmark Technical Support or a local authorized service provider for further assistance.

  6. Spin the transfer roller. Make sure it spins freely.

  7. If the transfer roller appears to be fine, reinstall the toner cartridge and power the printer back on.

  8. Try printing again to see if the error message returns.

If the 917 error still will not clear, or if the error continues to occur intermittently, the printer will likely require service. Please contact Lexmark Technical Support or a local authorized service provider for further assistance. See Contacting Lexmark below for more information.

How do i reset me lexmark 5070 printer after i used a refill for ink

  • Launch "Printer Solution Center." You should have installed this program when you installed your Lexmark printer. Click on the Start button and selecting "All Programs." The menu command or shortcut for this program is located under the "Lexmark" folder. Click on it. If you do not see this program for some reason, insert the installation CD (provided in the printer box) into the CD/DVD-ROM drive. Follow the on-screen prompts to install the program.

    Step 2
    Click on the tab that says "Maintenance" on the top menu.

    Step 3
    Click on the button titled "Install a new printer cartridge."

    Step 4
    Hit "Next" to launch "Print the Alignment page" window.

    Step 5
    Hit the "Print" button. This will reset your ink cartridges. You should be able to see a correct reading of the ink levels on your Lexmark printer.

    Step 6
    Repeat this process until you successfully reset the ink cartridges. Sometimes, it may require multiple attempts to complete this task

    if you want to know how to reset the complete thing then...
    Resetting a Lexmark printer
    You will firstly need to switch off your printer. Then simultaneously press the RETURN and READY keys while switching the printer on. This will take you to the Diagnostics Mode. The display unit will show the message 'Performing self test'. Choose 'Maintenance count'. Reset the count to make it zero. Then select the RETURN key and go back Diagnostics Mode. Then you can reset the printer to go back to the normal mode.

    hope this works for you...

    Lexmark 5070 printer

    Hard to tell...There are other issues which could contribute related to the printer itself, etc.

    But I will say in my experience often refill kits for ink cartridges don't work if you allow them the cartridge to run bone dry. Maybe the internal components become hard and won't re saturate with new ink, not sure. If new cartridges work; and the refills don't I'd say there may be a problem with them.

    Lex z25 not printing

    Mine wasn't printing at all, but now its printing color. I still don't know why it won't print black, but what I did was go into the control panel, I clicked on printers and faxes found the Z25 and right clicked it. I then clicked on properties, I clicked on the advanced tab, went down to the bottom of that section and clicked printing defaults, that opened the window for the properties for the printer. Once there I clicked on options in the top right corner and clicked on Lexmark Z25-Z35 Solution Center. On the maintenance tab I clicked "Clean to fix horizontal streaks", it takes to you a pop-up that says "Clean and Test Nozzles" a page will start printing to show if you have broken lines or unbroken lines when you print, either way it should clear your nozzles enough for the ink to start coming out again. If you need to repeat it the "Clean and Test Nozzles" pop-up had a box that says "clean again. Once you are done with that you can close the pop-up. If that doesn't solve the problem there are other things to try on the maintenance page besides the "Clean to fix horizontal streaks". Hope it starts working for y'all too. I still have to figure out the black part.

    Lexmark X73 print/paper problem

    Same problem here. Went thru a few tests with Lexmark but didnt help. They next said it would be best to get new one since repair cost would be higher. Thru front door I do see a spring that moves freely. That must be broke. After their help they sent email for 20% off.
