Sounds like either a bad internal control board, or a bad power supply..power supply is easier to check..voltage needs to be as specified on back of power unit

Lexmark X3470 All-In-one Scanner keep on saying it Busy


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


Should you still need assistance, please leave a comment to my response and I'll get back to you.

The main screen will not come up rebooted and it still does not light up.The screen WILL light up when you turn it off, but only for one second


Try to re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds. This will give enough time for the printer to reset itself.



It could also be that the printer is not getting enough power to function properly. Try to plug the printer into a different known working power outlet in the wall to identify if it's a faulty power outlet issue.



If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

My Lexmark z2300 sends to the printer & it says it's printing, but it doesn't actually print. I've tried several file types & programs to print from but none of them work.

My printer will not switch off


Try to unplug the power supply from the printer. It's the rectangular black box behind the printer where the power cord plugs into. Replug after 30 seconds. That should give enough time for the printer to reset itself. You can also try to plug printer to a different known working power outlet. thanks.

My Lexmark X4650's wifi light is off. I have tried to reset the wireless settings but when I try it says "network connection in progress" and goes back to the set up menu. How do i resolve this? Thanks.


Great job on trying to reset the printer's wireless network adapter. Somehow, the printer's memory is stuck to thinking to connect to a wireless network when it's not communicating at all. Unplug the power adapter from the printer. The power adapter is the rectangular black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. Wait at least 30 seconds before plugging back the power adapter in the printer. That should refresh itself. If wifi light won't turn on orange after the printer's on ready, reset the wireless network adapter again. Thanks.

Try to focus on the printer itself first. Remove the cartridges from the printer, close cover then unplug the power supply. The power supply is the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. Wait at least 30 seconds before plugging it back in the printer. When the printer's ready, reload the cartridges. Go through the alignment process. When it's done printing the alignment page, try to make a copy. If problem persists, I recommend you contact Lexmark Technical Support for further investigation. There might a hardware issue in the printer.

the tip shared in the first paragraph of rhong on Nov 28, 2008 was PERFECT , it is not only to press start color and back key with power button until it shuts down it is to turn the power button on while pressing the back and start color keys.. a little note comes on the screen saying "lang cleared" ...
THANK YOU RHONG !!!!
