I cannot get my printer to do a test page. The wi fi light does not come on. The on/off button flashes. I have followed the instructions from the cd which came with the printer all to no avail. The printer will not do anything either on line or off. Please help!
My Z1420 also flashed the power light (three times then a gap then repeat). it would work it I removed one of the cartridges (color in my case) and replacing the cartridge (lexmark sent me a replacement after I reported the original problem on first install) stopped the flashing.

Please try to reset your printer's wireless network settings. Refer to this article on How to Reset the Z1400 and Z1500 Series Network Settings. Once you reset the printer's network settings, the Wi-Fi light will momentarily turn off then on with orange light.
You can then run the Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility application on your computer to reconfigure the printer to reconnect to your wireless network.
Try to reset the wireless network adapter for your Lexmark Z1420 printer. Follow the steps in this article: How to Reset the Z1400 and Z1500 Series Network Settings. Then, unplug and replug your printer to refresh. Reinstall the printer to connect to your wireless network. Let me know if this helps. Thanks.
I suggest you reset the Lexmark Z2420 wireless network adapter. To reset, do the following: With the printer on, press and release the power button. The printer will enter power save mode. Now, press and hold the paper feed button. While holding down the paper feed button, press and release the power button. Continue holding the paper feed button for 30 seconds. Release the paper feed button. This will reset the internal network adapter (INA). When the printer has been reset, a solid orange Wi-Fi indicator light should appear. If Wi-Fi light goes back to flashing red, you have not successfully reset the printer. Start the procedure again. Once you have a solid orange Wi-Fi light, reconfigure the printer for wireless connection. Thanks.
What Wifi are you using? Remember this only works with WiFi 802 B and G, if you are using A it won't work. Do you have more information or questions? The more information you provide to us, the better we can help.
