Hi!
Your problem most likely is in the switchmode power supply section of the DC Controller board. What typically happens here is that the field effect transistor (FET) which is Q201 will fail. If you are an electronic technician and want to download a service manual, you probably can fix this. I just repaired my Laserjet 4L, and ordered the 2SK1351 transistor from littlediode.com in the UK. I ordered it from them because of the price and the fact that the next best price was 8.88 from MCM Electronics, but they are out of stock until June 21,2010. This FET has switched on and off many times, handled varing amount of current up to 4 amps, and is mounted on a heat sink in the 15 plus years since it was made. It therefore has dealt with a lot of heat, which can make a transistor eventually fail. I hope that this helps!!

Error why coming


Can you hear any fan or drive sounds? If you don't hear anything at all when you try to turn the laptop on, no little LED's light up, the problem almost certainly isn't related to the hard drive. So if you don't have a live screen, start with the LCD troubleshooting flowchart, and if you don't have any activity at all, start with the power troubleshooting flowchart. Even if the hard drive has failed at the electro/mechanical level and won't spin up, this wont prevent the LED's on the laptop from lighting up, or the LCD from displaying the BIOS information and complaining about the lack of a boot device.

None of the cartridges can be empty if you want to print.
Even if you only want to print black, just black you need to
replace the other three cartridges.
Yes color laser printing is expensive.

Try to reset the wireless network adapter of the printer. On the printer operator panel:
- Press Settings to display Settings
- Press pattlnk_5182007_1524-left_new.jpg to display Settings
- Press pattlnk_5152007_204-checkmark_alone.jpg to display Network Setup
- Press pattlnk_5182007_1529-right_arrow.jpg to display Network Setup
- Press pattlnk_5152007_204-checkmark_alone.jpg to display Wireless Setup
- Press pattlnk_5182007_1529-right_arrow.jpg twice to display Wireless Setup
- Press pattlnk_5152007_204-checkmark_alone.jpg to display the scrolling message This will reset all wireless network adapter settings. Are you sure?.
- Press pattlnk_5182007_1524-left_new.jpg or pattlnk_5182007_1529-right_arrow.jpg to change the value from No to Yes, and press pattlnk_5152007_204-checkmark_alone.jpg.

The WiFi light on the printer will momentarily turn off. When it lights up solid orange, launch the Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility on your computer by inserting your installation cd or executing the Lexmark X6570 driver. Follow the instructions on your computer screen.

Paper feed problem


Just open up the printer lid, don't be afraid, you won't break anything. Usually inkjet printers have a panel on the back aswell which you can open by twisting a big knob. It's there especially for unjamming paper. Also, make sure the paper in the tray is arranged in a neat stack and the things that keep the paper in place are tightly placed against the paper.
