  • If the power light on the printer is blinking, you may have a carrier stall. To check this:
      1. First unplug the printer.
      2. Move the cartridges to the left by hand. In order to do this, you need to grip the top of the carrier belt (a black/grey belt with cog-like teeth) and pull it towards the right-hand side of the printer.
      3. Once the cartridges have been moved across, you can clip them out.
      4. Try to print without the cartridges in the carrier.
      5. If you no longer have a carrier stall, put the cartridges back into the carrier and clip them into place.
    If you feel that's hard to move the carriage, maybe you just have to put a little bit of oil on your rod ....

    The light indicates that there is an error on the printer and it will immediately stop printing. Turn the printer off and back on. Cancel all print job. If the lights are still blinking, please contact Lexmark Technical Support for additional assistance.

    My lexmark blinks green but wont turn on everytime i try to turn it on it just spins for a second and goes right back to blink mode

    The flashing green light probably means communication error, it is not normal.
    These Dell/Lexmark comm. errors can be difficult.

    Try this:
    Start > Control Panel > Printers2_bing.gif and Faxes > RtClick Your Printer (default) > Properties > Advanced (on mine) > Check "Print Directly to Printer"

    1. First count the number of times the light on the front of your printer flashes.
    2. Then refer to the table below for information about the error condition and recommended recovery procedures.

      Number of Flashes Error Condition Error Recovery 2 Carrier Stall:
      The movement of the print cartridge carrier has been obstructed. Remove any objects blocking the carrier path.
      4 Print Incomplete:
      The print cartridge carrier stopped in the middle of a print job due to obstruction. Remove any objects blocking the carrier path.
      12 Cartridge Short:
      The printer has detected a short circuit in a cartridge.
      1. Turn the printer off.
      2. Open the front cover.
      3. Turn the printer back on.
      4. Remove the color cartridge.
      5. Close the cover. If there are no flashing lights, the color cartridge is short-circuited.
      6. Remove the black cartridge and then reinsert the color cartridge.
      7. If there is no error indicated by flashing lights, the black cartridge is short-circuited.
      8. If you continue to receive an error indicated by flashing lights, both cartridges are short-circuited.
