A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, try to print again to verify the connection.

Try to print the wireless network settings page on your Lexmark X4650 to determine if your printer is still registered in your wireless network. 1. Press Setup (pattlnk_632008_2048-x4650stup.jpg) on the printer operator panel. 2. Press the right or left arrow button until Network Setup is displayed, and then press(pattlnk_632008_2052-x4650ok.jpg). 3. Press pattlnk_632008_2052-x4650ok.jpg at Print Setup Page. 4. Press pattlnk_632008_2052-x4650ok.jpg when prompted to Load Paper. 5. Press pattlnk_632008_2052-x4650ok.jpg. The network settings page will now print.
Check the IP Address and the SSID (network name).
A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Frequently, issues are caused simply by a break in the signal sent from PC to printer or vice versa. Unplugging and re-plugging the printer allows the small amount of on-board memory on the printer to be cleared, with the result that the PC recognizes the machine properly. Programs continuing to run in the background of the operating system (OS) can cause the signal to be lost. Rebooting the PC ends all programs that may be running and makes a 'clean' start, allowing the signal to be detected.

MY LEXMARKX5650 THERE IS A DOCUMENT STUCK IN MY QUEUE. IT SAYS DELETING BUT IT DOESNT DELETE I CANT PRINT MY OTHER DOCUMENTS I REALLY DONT WANT TO HAVE TO RESTART THE PC IHAVE A FILLED IN DOCUMENT THAT...


Disconnect the printer from the computer. Open the print queue, and be sure that the title bar says "printer offline". If it doesn't, select "use printer offline" from the file menu. Then try to delete the file multiple times if necessary to clear the queue. You may have to reboot the computer, but try this first. Also, you can try pressing cancel on the printer itself. If none of this works, disconnect the printer from power for 10 minutes, and try again. Good luck!!

My Lexmark 3600 - 4600 printer will not work. It will not print, it gets stuck at 5% or 10% and says I have no ink. I checked on the printer and it told me I had 7% Black Ink left and 69% Colour Ink left,...


First, make sure there are no print jobs stuck in the queue. On the computer, go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services. Scroll down the items and make sure these services are "Started":
  • Print Spooler
  • lxdx

If status doesn't say Started, right click on the item and choose Properties. Choose Automatic for Startup type. Choose Started for Service status. Hit Apply then Ok to save the settings. Retry printing. If problem continues, contact Lexmark technical support. Thanks.

I cannot delete a document from my print queue on my lexmark x4650. I get the deleting message but the document does not delete and now I cannot print any other document. How do I fix this?


Hi,

Have you tried restarting your PC? Once you do this, unplug your printer power cord for a few minutes, uninstall your printer from your computer and reinstall the software. Then plug your power cord back into your printer and try printing your document once more.

Hope this solves your problem.
Best wishes,

My lexmark X4650 gives me a message that the network printer is busy when I try to print wirelessly. There is no other computer trying to print.


Make sure there are no print jobs stuck in the queue then unplug the power adapter from the printer. The power adapter is the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. Wait at least 30 seconds before plugging it back in. When the printer's ready, try printing again. If the problem persists, I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support to further investigate the problem. Thanks.

Have second hand lexmark e260dn and status light


Blinking status light means the printer is busy. If it's not doing anything else, disconnect the printer from the computer. Restart the printer and then print a menu settings page. Clear the print queue on your computer before re-attaching the printer. Thanks.

Turning off unnecessary printing instructions


Hi,
I believe this is controlled in the software part of the printer. Check the Lexmark Productivity Studio under settings. There should be an option that says enable instructions page for 2 side printing.

I want to print new page of printing printer keeps churning out prvious printing instrctions i am 78yrs old still learning


Hi,

What you need to do is clear out the printing "QUEUE".

.
Clearing the Print Queue in Windows
The printer is one of the slowest devices in a computer system. If you had to wait for it to print your document before you could resume writing, you would quickly go back to using a typewriter. To eliminate the delay, Windows reserves a portion of memory for something called a “print queue” (or spooler). The queue works on a first-in first-out basis. You can continue to use the computer and send jobs to the spooler as it feeds a steady stream of data to the printer.
Print queues are nice, except when something happens in the printer to cause it to stop functioning. Sometimes it is just a paper jam and sometimes it is a bit more serious. If you need to cancel the jobs in the print queue, you can simply double-click the printer icon (in the system tray down by the clock) and open the print queue. Depending upon the length of your document and how many documents are waiting to print, the printer icon may appear briefly or for a sustained period. (Note: This would be a good time to remove the paper from the printer before continuing.) If the icon is not there, you can manually open the queue.
Open the Print Queue
  • Windows 98 - click Start, Settings, Printers
  • Windows XP - click Start, Printers and Faxes
    or click Start, Control Panel, Printers and Faxes
  • Windows Vista - Start, Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Printers
Double-click to open the appropriate printer's queue. The Print dialog box will open. Here you will see a list of all of the jobs waiting to print, along with the status of each job. The first print job is at the top of the list.
To cancel a document in the list, right-click it and select Cancel Printing. Most often, it is better to cancel all of the jobs and then resend the documents to the printer.
Cancel All Documents
  • Windows 98 - click Printer on the menu, select “Purge Print Documents”
  • Windows XP - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
  • Windows Vista - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
Please note that you must have Administrative rights in Windows XP and Vista to cancel print jobs. If you are the only user, you automatically have administrative rights. If you are on a multi-user computer, you must be an administrator. If are on a network and get a message saying that you do not have Administrative rights, find someone who does.
Under normal circumstances, printing documents are cancelled and will disappear from the queue. If one or more do not disappear, shutdown the computer and restart. When shutting down, you may get a message warning you that your print jobs will be lost if you continue. Tell Windows to shutdown anyway. When you restart, Windows may tell you that you have print jobs waiting. Tell Windows to delete them.
Before you resume work, open the Print Queue from the Start menu. You should find the queue empty. If you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista and the queue is not empty, you will be unable to print. Before trashing your computer, you can try to clear the queue using a secret Windows command.
Click Start, Run, and type “Net Stop Spooler” (without the quotes). Then press Enter. Shutdown the computer and restart. The print jobs should be removed. If they are not, shut down the computer again, take a deep breath, and then go for a long walk. The queue should be clear when you return. Note that you must restart the computer for your printers to resume normal operation.

This should solve your problem, Let me know how it works for you..
