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"
