Question about Lexmark X73 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Lexmark X73 just stopped working totally

Had a paper jam; now printer light just blinks and nothing works. I've tried everything in the troubleshooting guide. No buttons on it work at all; not even the paper feed. The cartridges are stuck to the right and won't move. When turning it off and back on, it hesitates for a few seconds, makes a short noise, and goes back to a blinking green light. There is no communication with it from my computer at all either, but that makes sense since it won't even work manually. It it shot or can it be reset somehow? Thanks, Tom

    Printer will not print. Status light blinking and nothing happens. Scanner seems to be working but nothing else.

    We have just encountered the same problem! The status light continues to blink and the cartridges remain stuck to the right side, just as described by others. The printer has served us well for about 5 years now, but suddenly refuses to get out of this state. Does anyone know of a solution to this problem?

    I also have this same problem. I have rebooted the computer, unpluged the printer and plugged back in. I have even uninstalled the printer and reinstalled it again ending with the same results. The status light continues to blink. The scanner won't even work. It says "cannot enable the scanner". Is it junk?

    When I try to print the paper only goes in half way. The ink cartradges are moving but the paper isn't. There is communication between the printer and my computer but the paper continues to jam.

I was printing a homework assignment from my professor, I received an error message that something may be invalid with what he sent. I tried to print and everthing just jammed, the cartridges are stuck to the right and noting will move. I have turned it on and off and even unplugged it from the Computer, but when restarted nothing still happens there is still no communication with my omputer. Is it shot or can still use it? Thanks Rebbec

Lexmark x73 Printer

push the paper a little bit to help the printer to pull it correctly if not working then there is a problem with the rollers and that would be a hardware issue and needs to be fixed at the shop.

Problem w/printing

Try this first:

Turn off the printer and unplug it. Open the paper jam door and give the paper roller a gentle push forward until it clicks. This is a simple reset of the paper feed. Close the door, plug your printer back in and turn it on.
I hope this works for you. If it does not we may need to reinstall the driver. Please let me know. Thanks!

Lexmark X73 print/paper problem

Same problem here. Went thru a few tests with Lexmark but didnt help. They next said it would be best to get new one since repair cost would be higher. Thru front door I do see a spring that moves freely. That must be broke. After their help they sent email for 20% off.
