Lexmark x1270 printer power button blinking won't print

Hi, I have a lexmark x1270 printer. It has been printing fine until this morning when there was a paper jam. I took the paper out, which was not jammed much at all, and the computer instructed me to shut off the printer and re-send my print job. I did all this and it does not work. The power button is blinking continuously and nothing is happening...help!

    Yeah about a month ago mine also had a paper jam. I reinstalled the drivers completely wiping out the old ones. It still doesn't work. I even took the printer down from the shelf to insure there were no stray bits of paper down inside. There were none. Can someone explain this. Thanks a bunch.

I had the same issue with my Lexmark X1290, I solved it by opening up the device, so the ink cartridges should pop, they didn't so I pressed the power button to switch it off, and then switched it back on (with the device open!) and all the paper flowed out, the flashing stopped and it could print again. Good Luck!

Still blinked..wasted time talking to a customer support that I couldn't understand and then...I read this! I took it loose shook it upside down and plugged it back in....walla it came on and NO blinking light. Maybe there was a piece of dust I don't know but it now works again. Hahaha...thanks!

Unplug the printer from wall and computer..let it sit for 5 min, reconnect power only. run test page first..then plug in computer..

make sure that the paper run is completely open, by opening all the panels and doors that can be.

SOURCE: lexmark x1270 paper jam

hah - I had this problem on my old 1270 - there is a jam - its just very small - mine was caused by half a peanut lodged under a pickup roller - take the back paper guide off and check carefully - it might just be a piece of grit - the paper will skew away from the point of the jam so see where it skews and check around there

hope this helps, cheers

Good morning, i was printing and the printer shut


Try to unplug the power adapter from the printer. Unplug the power cord from the power outlet in the wall. Replug the power cord after at least 10 seconds - bypass any power surge devices or power strips. Replug the power adapter into the printer. Your printer should automatically power on, otherwise, press the power button. If the printer still won't power on, please contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.

Trying to cancel a print job on Lexmark X1270


I tried all the recommended solutions I found on FixYa but none seemed to work immediately. I decided to disconnect the printer from the PC for an hour or so and this did the trick. Not sure if that solved the problem, or the simply that the printer was working very slowly to delete the original printing request. However, I now know where to seek help in the future. Thanks anyway

Lexmark 1270 scans but will not print


With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

To fix a fouled install :
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the sofware asks for the printer connect it and continue

It will not print when power button blinks, you must clear jam or reset until power button is on steady.
