Printer do not start

Try to unplug the power adapter (black box) at the back of the printer for about 1 minute. If it doesn't work, try to update the firmware of your printer:

If those steps doesn't work and your printer is still under warranty, please contact our technical support team to have the printer replaced.

Hp PSC1210 All-In-One not turning on

HP makes a couple of different power cords for the PSC 1210 and their other printers. First make sure you are using the correct power cord (Amperage and voltage). Unplug the power cord (from the wall and the printer and from a power module if you have one). Leave all of the sections unplugged for at least 15 seconds to reset the power module/printer.

Next connect the power cord to the wall outlet and to the power module if present and check if the LED (if present lights up). If it doesn't try another outlet. In either case, check what the outlet voltage/amperage is at the end of the power cord with a multimeter (before you plug it into the printer). If you have a power module, then check the Amperage (it will be a DC current out).

If you are not getting the correct voltage and amperage out or the LED doesn't light (with a known good outlet), try a different power cord/module.
You can order these from HP.

If you have the correct power at the cord, plug the power cord into the printer and attempt to turn it on. (Press and release the power button.) If the printer still doesn't come on, the unit needs service. Contact HP if the printer is under warranty. Decide if it is worth fixing if it is out of warranty.

I hope this helps.

Printer turned itself off and will not switch back on?

If unplugging the power cord for 10 seconds doesn't reset the printer to normal operation, and replacing the power cord doesn't help, you may have a failed power supply.
Power supplies are usually not very difficult for an experienced technician to repair, but most inkjet printers are made to be very difficult to service - the case is often held together with lots of hidden latches and catches. They snap together quickly and cheaply, but they are hard to disassemble. That's in part because the labor cost for repairs often approaches the price of a new printer, so the manufacturers would rather save a few pennies on screws and make you buy another printer. Your model may be an exception; the all-in-one units have a bit more value and may be worth repairing.
If the printer is still under warranty, by all means collect on it.

Blinking lights

Power off printer, remove power plug from printer, remove usb cable from printer, pull out paper and check for jams, check toner cartridge, clean area underneath the toner cartridge head, uninstall printer from windows control panel, reboot computer, plug-in printer with a different working usb cable, plug in power to printer, power on printer, reinstall printer driver. All in those steps exactly. If that doesn't work I would say you have a bad printer on your hands.

Doesn't print the whole page

Try to re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

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

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the 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 a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Lexmark X5270 power butoon keeps blinking and no power

Try to remove the power adapter from the printer. Then unplug the power cord from the power outlet in the wall.printmastert_62.jpg
Wait at least 10 seconds before re-plugging the printer into the power source (bypass any surge devices or power strips). Reconnect the power adapter into the printer. If printer won't automatically turn on, press the power button. If that doesn't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for further assistance.

My printer doesnt work it doenst switch on at all

If printer doesn't work and it doesn't switch on, I assumed that there is no power at all on the printer. Check the AC line voltage if it is correct.

Unplug the printer. Remove the LVPS/HVPS, and check the fuses for continuity.

• If open, then replace the LVPS/HVPS.
• If not open, then check the switch continuity across its conductors with the switch on.
Turn the switch off. Plug the AC line into the LVPS/HVPS, and switch unit on.

Please try reseat power cable. If this does not resolve the issue, you may need to replace the LVPS (Low voltage power supply) on your printer.

For further assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support
