    I get the same error

  • KIAAAL Mar 25, 2009

    Prtr works fine for a long time, but occasionally goes into a non-responsive mode....NOTHING happens. Sometimes, error bolt flashes slowly while ready light is on; sometimes, just the ready light is on. Sometimes solved by turning prtr off/on; sometimes the computer has to be turned off/on.
    Prtr actually works better now on VISTA after a Hellish start, but this problem persists, although in a lesser way compared to operating under W98SE.

Had this exact problem after motherboard smoked and transferred hard disks to a new system. The printer installed fine on a different machine which was comforting, and would be a good test to run.

Turns out deleting the printer isn't enough. Wound up reinstalling the driver. That's a pretty obvious next step but the 1350W driver installer apparently does things its own way so if the windows add new hardware wizard comes up you MUST cancel it. Not sure which of these steps are required and which are not, but here's what I did to the best of my recollection ;-)

0) Turn off the printer.
1) Delete the printer (all instances of 1350W) in printers and faxes.
2) In add/remove programs delete the Konica Minolta application.
3) Reboot (this was always a key step in Win98 reality, not sure if XP requires but it can't hurt.)
4) Turn on the printer. If at any time the add new hardware wizard comes up, just say no.
5) Run setup from the driver CD. If you don't have the CD you can get it from KonicaMinolta or CNET (download.com).
6) For me it defaulted to LPT1 but I chose USB001 from the list.
7) If it throws an "error adding service" message don't panic. That may be why there was a problem to begin with (the error, not necessarily the panic.) This happened to me but clicked OK and after several seconds the installer resumed. Next thing I knew was prompting me to add paper.

The error message (for Googling purposes) was:

Error Adding Service
Name: MLPTDR_Q
File: MLPTDR_Q.SYS
Dependencies: +Parallel arbitrator
Load Order Group: Extended base
dwServiceType: 1
dwStartType: 2



Hope this makes someone's day.

When I try to line tells me that the paper size mismatch and only takes a copy of the text


Have/had the same problem: Getting "paper size mismatch" on the C4280 status screen, after we got a paper jam. Every time we hit OK and put in paper, Message about "Now printing Alignment page", it feeds through quickly, with nothing printed on the page and reverts back to Paper size mismatch. Finally got rid of the error, not sure how, but now when I try to copy anything, we only get the lower right postion of the document that I'm trying to copy. Printing from the PC seems ok.
Powered off and back on, and it is back to P"now printing alignment page, quick feed through and "paper size mismatch" error. AND
When copying directly from the glass panel,it will only print a quarter of the page -however it prints and coorectly if we print directly from the computer.
The problem is the paper size sensors. Remove the plastic access panel that is for access to the rollers in the back and has 4 rollers on it. There are two papaer sensors attached to the printer circuit board (PCB). The control arm for the sensor is a small plastic piece that extends slightly into the paper path above the PCB. The plastic can be broken when you are removing a paper jam. I stuck a small piece of a match stick in the sensor to keep it open (as though a wider piece of paper was passing throught the printer). I can't switch to smaller card stock, etc, but who cares, it works.
The copying problem is caused because the C4280 will not scan correctly until after it does the alignment phase.

It blinks orange


The information below (could not copy illustrations) is available from:

http://support.lexmark.com/index?locale=en&page=product&productCode=LEXMARK_X4650&segment=SUPPORT&userlocale=EN_UK&frompage=null#1

I did a searcfh for 'blinking orange light' in the Got a Question field.


The Wi-Fi indicator light gives information about the status of the printer.
NOTE: Most wireless communication issues are a result of the following:
  • RF interference or wireless signal quality.
  • System of software firewall applications blocking crucial Lexmark software and ports.
  • The router has been reset. A different or new SSID(network name) and passphrase on the router creates a mismatch to those originally configured on the printer. You will need these router settings to reconfigure the printer using the included Setup Utility or Setup Assistant.
  • The printer has been turned OFF for period.
Use the table below to help determine your printer's current status, and refer to the linked articles for additional assistance.

"Printer is trying to connect wirelessly"

  • The INA has been configured for infrastructure, but is not linked to an access point
  • There is a security setting mismatch between access point and router.
  • Interim negotiating status while performing setup procedure.
  • Out of range or interference between printer and access point.
  • Printer unplugged for an extended period of time may cause this to happen.

Click here for an article on Signal Strength. NOTE: This article pertains to the X3500-X4500 Series printers but it is valuable for ALL wireless products.
If you are really unsure what has happened:

  • Make sure the computer is communicating over the network.

  • Reset your wireless router (AP) by turning it OFF and ON or
    remove the power supply from the back of the printer and then plug it back in.

  • Follow this link to the Wireless Setup Utility or Wireless Configuraton Utilty to reconfigure the printer.

Error 950.10 NVRAM Mismatch. Replaced the LCD


If the lcd that you put in came from another printer instead of Lexmark, it will say that because the lcd, riser card on rip board and rip board all contain nvram that has to be matched. an lcd from Lexmark will no have any nvram data and the nvram will be copied from the other two sources upon install. The only way to get the lcd out of another machine is to get all of the above parts from the same printer at the same time.

I have a lexmark t644 printer and have an error code of 900.44 any ideas on how to fix this


  1. If the printer is currently displaying a 900 RIP Software error, power off the printer and leave it powered off for 20 seconds or more. Doing this will clear the printer's memory.
  2. While the printer is off, clear any pending print jobs from the computer or the network queue. This will prevent any corrupted print jobs from being sent to the printer again when it is powered back on.
  3. Power the printer back on.
  4. If the printer goes to the Ready status, try printing again.
  5. If the 900 RIP Software error returns when the printer is powered up or when you try to print, there is a problem with either the printer, the communication cable connecting the printer to the computer, or with the print job itself. Follow the directions below to check each of these components.
    • If the error appears every time you power on the printer, regardless of whether you send a print job or not, the likely source of the problem is the printer or an option installed on the printer.
    • If the error appears only when you send print jobs to the printer, the likely source of the problem is the computer, a setting on the printer, or one of the communication cables.

Lexmark x1185 cartridge error msg


Step 1). Try cleaning the gold contacts on the print cartridge and on the printer itself with a pen eraser and a little alcohol.

Step 2). Uninstall the printer software and reinstall it.

Step 3). If the above two steps fail try a new cartridge. If none of these solutions work there is an electronic problem with the printer and it will have to be professionally diagnosed or replaced.

Hope this was of some help to you.

Minolta 2300w


color light has nothing to do with this, first try once more to reinstall drivers, if still shows wrong printer, then you have to upgrade firmware, because if you installed the correct mc2300w drivers and status monitor tell you wrong printer there can be 2 things. firmware is broken or printer/computer usb port is broken. so if you can use another usb port or another computer try it or LPT cable. and as a laast thing update firmware.

Table Mismatch Download Again


This is the only Solution to "Table Mismatch"...

If a “Table Mismatch” is displayed, recycle power and reflash the printer. Can get “Table Mismatch” after replacing CMX Board.
“Table Mismatch”
Flash Upgrade Instructions Using the printer’s Parallel Port: You have ethernet, you can FTP download.
1. Print a configuration on the printer prior to the download. After the flash is upgraded, the printer will be at Factory settings and you will need this printout to restore any non- default settings.
2. The PTX flash code is on a CD you should have received with printer. Don’t have? I can email you the Flash program.
3. Turn the printer's power off.
4. If there is a cable connected to the printer’s serial port, disconnect it.
5. Connect a cable from the LPT1 port on a PC that has a DOS prompt mode to the printer’s parallel port.
6. While holding down the Online & FF(Paper Advance) keys, power up the printer. The printer will display "Waiting for Program Download".
7. At the PC’s DOS prompt, go to the directory where the file is located C:\Temp and
type "filename.exe -pb<ENTER>" where filename is the name of the file that you downloaded in step 2.
NOTE: there is a space before the -pb
8. The printer's display will keep you informed of the status of the download. When the download is complete, cycle the printer’s power.
