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.

How to stop wi fi from flashing orange on my x4650 lexmark printer


The blinking WiFi light on your printer indicates either your printer is trying to communicate with your wireless network or your printer is not connected at all. For a quick fix, try to disconnect your printer from the power outlet. Power cycle your router and reboot your computer. Then, power on your router first, then your printer and lastly your computer. Check the WiFi light on your printer. If it goes to a solid green, that means you are connected back in your network. If not, you may reset your printer's wireless network adapter to its default settings. From the printer operator panel, press the Setup button > Network Setup > Reset Network Adapter to Default. The WiFi light on your printer will momentarily turn off then back on solid orange. Then try to run the Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility on your computer to reconfigure your printer to connect to your wireless network.
I hope this helps.

My printer wireless indicator is flashing red and I cannot print


The flashing status of the WiFi light on the printer indicates that it's either trying to connect to a wireless network or it has gotten disconnected from your wireless network.
A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, check the WiFi light status. Try to print again.

Your printer may need to be reset. Disconnect your printer from your computer. Unload the sheets of paper from the feeder. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. While the cover is open, check for any paper jams or obstructions in the paper path and the cartridge carrier's path. If all is clear, close the printer cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it.
When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the cover. Check for any errors. If no error, reinsert the other cartridge. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear. You can also try to reinsert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.
For your wireless connection problem, you may need to reset the printer's wireless network settings first. Please refer to How to Reset the Z1400 and Z1500 Series Network Settings.
To reconnect the printer to your wireless network, re-launch Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility on your computer.

How do i get my printer to work and stop the wifi button from flashing red? my internet is connected but the printer is not


Blinking WiFi light indicates that the printer is either trying to connect to a wireless network or not at all. Unplug the printer from the power outlet. Replug after 10 seconds. This will give enough time for the printer to reset. If WiFi light continues to blink, you may need to reset the printer's wireless network adapter. Please refer to this article: How to Reset the Z1400 and Z1500 Series Network Settings. The WiFi light will then turn off momentarily, then lights up solid orange. Launch the Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility to reconnect printer to your wireless network.

I think I accidently cleared my wireless wifi on my printer.... the wifi light is orange instead of green so not connecting


Try to print the network settings page to determine if your printer is still connected to your wireless network or not. On the printer operator panel, press the Setup button -> Network Setup -> Print Setup Page. Check the SSID if the printer is still registered to your wireless network. If not, you may need to reset your printer's wireless network adapter. Press Setup -> Network Setup -> Reset Network Adapter. The wifi light on your printer will then momentarily turn off. Once it turns on solid orange again, you may reconfigure your printer to connect to your wireless network.

If your printer is still registered to your wireless network, then it could be just a slight communication problem. Try to unplug and replug your printer into the power outlet to reset it. Doing this usually fixes minor communication issues.

Blinking orange light where tghe wifi is


The light indicates that the printer's trying to connect to a wireless network. If the blinking wifi light has been going on for quite some time now but connection is still not going through, you will need to reset the printer's wireless network adapter. To reset the network adapter on Lexmark X6570, press Settings button > Network Setup > Wireless Setup > Reset Network Adapter to Factory Defaults. The wifi light will momentarily turn off then on and should be solid orange then. Try to reconnect the printer for wireless connection.
