Question about Lexmark T630 Laser Printer
I did resolve the problem. It was to do with the main power board, which needed to be replaced. Not to expensive as I bought another (older) second hand printer for not very much and worked out how to remove the board from it and replace the damaged one in the near new printer.
I believe the problem arose from me moving the printer while it was turned on and some movement occurred between the extra paper tray and the main unit causing an electrical spike/surge/short ? A very simple mistake that was costly in time.

Hi Bret! Since this is a brand new printer, I would advise calling Lexmark. I'm afraid that you may void your warranty if you do much more at this point except for going back through the steps to make sure the duplexer was installed correctly.
1. Power off the printer and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet
2. Push the release button, and gently lower the front door.
3. Release the green tabs and lift up the image transfer belt.
4. Remove the cover over the duplex connector.
5, Remove the duplex option from the packaging. Carefully install the option into the printer, under the image transfer unit. NOTE: Make sure to line up the arrows on the duplex option with the arrows on the printer. Make sure the duplex option locks into position.
6. Lower the image transfer belt back into position. Make sure the belt locks into position.
7. Close the front cover.
8. Plug the printer back in, then power the printer on.
9. Try printing a few pages to confirm that the duplex option is securely installed. Then select the duplex option in the software and print a few double-sided pages to confirm that the duplex option is working.
The following link will take you to the instructions for enabling the duplex option in the software.
If the above does't work, I would strongly suggest contacting Lexmark for further help.

10. Turn the unit on. The printer may display message "USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE PRINTER" followed by "PRESS OK TO CONTINUE". Press OK.
11. If the printer has already initialized, then go to the next step. If not, the printer will start the "ONE TIME INK INITIALIZATION PROCESS". Allow this process to complete and do not interrupt. Once the initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a Diagnostic Page.
12. To verify printer functionality print a SELF TEST PAGE. If SELF TEST prints, then printer is ready for use.
NOTE: If the error is still there, or reoccurs replace the unit."
