Re: photosmart/all-in-one

I am having the same problem. Mine randomly started printing alignment pages when I changed the ink. Then, yesterday it just didn't turn on. Ridiculous :/ Guess I just have to buy a new one if a lot of people are having the same problems.

My lexmark x5470 printer will not turn on. We had a huge thunderstorm and everything went out but it is the only thing that wont turn on right now.

Try first to remove the black box.Used a clean and dry paper clean the metal plate on the area where you plug it in ,clean also the black box specially the metal plate .Then try to remove the power cord from the black box clean the ports clean also the cable .Try to return it back make sure its properly plug in .Try to used other power outlet in case no go .In case no go probably its the power supply inside the printer

The control panel display is blank on my lexmark x6570 printer

If the LCD on the operator panel constantly displays black bars/boxes or other unusual characters, take the following steps:
1. Disconnect the power supply from the printer.
2. Wait for about one minute, then reconnect the power supply and check the LCD display.
3. If black boxes/bars or unusual characters are still displaying constantly, move the power supply to a different power outlet.
4. If the black boxes/bars or unusual characters are still displaying, the scanner ribbon cable may need to be reseated. Do the following:

1. Lift the scanner flatbed. (Open the printer as if attempting to install cartridges.)
2. Look in the back right corner of the 6150/70 for an access cover.
3. Press firmly on the front right corner of the access cover to reseat the scanner ribbon cable that is located underneath the access panel.

HP5610 All-In-One will not turn on

Sounds funny....try to open and remove the cartridges, and then power on.... the black bars usually indicate some kind of electrical problem, and it is usually the the printer, remove the carts, ( you may have to gently slide the carousel over for access ) and close power down, and remove the power. Then reverse...let me know if this helps...

Paper comes out looking a shade darker, almost dirty.

9 out of 10 times this is caused by dirty contacts. It can also be caused by some electrical charge getting to the paper as it goes through the printer or a faulty (weak) power supply board. Your first check should be to remove all of the consumables and clean all metal contacts with an alcohol wipe or similar. Hope this helps.
Please take a moment to rate this solution, thanks.

HP C6180 all in one

Have an HP C6180 that would not turn on, no power. Unplugged and replugged the unit in the back - no fix. Unplugged the unit at the wall socket, reconnected and I thought I heard a faint click in the power supply. Hit the on button and the C6180 powered up - no issues. Without knowing for sure, possibly the power supply has some type of surge arrest safety switch.
