Red light on Printer doesn't want to print anymore

I asked to print 26 copies. It failed to do it so I asked again and it printed 26 copies but then started to copy 26 more so to stop it in a hurry, I opened the paper drawer Then the red light came on and it doesn't want to print anymore. I have looked everywhere I could and it really doesn't seem to have paper jammed inside...? I don't know what to do

Pull out the cartridge and look for paper inside, re-install cartridge, also look on the back part where the fuser and exit assembly is look for paper jammed. also make sure the paper is set correctly on the tray.

I have a Lexmark X8300. All was ok till recently. I can print out anything from the computer but can't use the copy feature. Also, all of the lights stay on - the copy light, fax light, scan light,...

A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.

If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print again.

You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website at Select your operating system, download and execute the file.

If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

My printer does not print from the computer nor does it print copies.

Try this utility: Print Flush 1.3

Fix your printer with this small utility!

Has your printer quit working? Did you try to cancel a job and it broke the printer completely? I always do that. And the method to fix it usually involves rebooting, restarting the print spooler, trashing junk print files, and sometimes even more. Not anymore.

Print Flush has a simple function: clean the print spool. If your printer's driver is incorrectly installed, Print Flush cannot help you. If you have used your printer before and it worked fine then, but it doesn't now, Print Flush can probably help you.

It also works with Vista.

  1. Save somewhere where you can find it.
  2. If you downloaded the zipped version... Unzip the file to the desktop or something
  3. Double-click the file
  4. Try printing again!

Printer will not print e-mails


Once you give print command of an email, your email program should ask you to select printer.

If you are using MS Office, by default One Note printer might be selected.

Please check which printer is assigned when you click print.

I hope this information helps.

Printer will not print entire document. If I have a 46 page doc, the printer only prints half. I enter the rest of the doc, and it prints maybe four pages then stops again.

Try printing pages 1 through 25, let printer cool down, print pages 26-46. I'm, thinking it's a print head overtemp problem. If the second printing will not do the complete 26 to end, let the printer set for a longer time to cool off and try again.

When printing multiple pages it prints 1 and & stops & no more

Go to Kodak's site and download and install the firmware upgrade for the printer. Follow all instructions on their site for doing this. There are some printers that have this known issue and apparently is fixed by firmware updates. Also uninstall the printer driver (after successfullly doing the firmware update) and reinstall it. Reboot the computer after reinstalling the printer driver.

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
