Re: lexmark x75 printer/scanner
This printer/scanner, hooks up to the computer via USB. The USB cable goes into the back of the printer on the right hand side (opposite side from the power supply).
The status blinking could indicate either;
1. No paper
2. No or very little, ink.

Try to rebrick your printer. Pull out 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.
You may also try to plug the printer to a different known working power outlet in the wall to identify if it's a faulty power outlet issue.
If that doesn't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Then unplug the power cord from the power outlet. Wait at least 10 seconds before re-plugging the power cord into the power outlet in the wall (bypass any power strip) and the power adapter into the printer. This will give enough time for the printer to reset itself. If printer won't automatically turn on, press the power button. If that doesn't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.
Try to unplug the power adapter from the printer. Disconnect the power cord from the power outlet in the wall.

Hi. That's quite a problem you have there. Have your attention first on the power supply. It does get hot but it's unusual if it gets very hot. Take out the power supply (the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached). Check the power specifications. Most of the Lexmark power supply has input ranging from 120-240 Volts and an output of 30 Volts. Make sure you're plugging it in the right voltage range. Check if you're using power surge protectors or power strip, disconnect it and plug directly into a properly grounded wall outlet. Power surge protectors can also draw power away from the printer. When everything's well, try printing again. Hope this helps.
Try to refresh the status of the printer by taking out the
cartridges, turn off the printer, REMOVE the AC adapter at the back of
the printer, disconnect the power cable from the power
outlet, disconnect also the USB cable. After 20 seconds, put it
back all again and turn the printer on. If that doesn't do the trick and you are still having the same problem, you'll have to contact Lexmark for replacement (in warranty), or have it repaired by reputable repair establishment. Given it's sub-$90 price tag however, the repair will more than likely NOT be cost effective.
