Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Suddenly started making a beep whenever it has power.

My Lexmark X5470 was working properly up to 2 days ago, but now whenever i plug the power back in, it makes 6 beeps, then stops for 2 second, then repeats, the little screen is blank, and it responds to nothing but pulling the plug. Any suggestions?

My lexmark x5470 does not turn on, and only a red light bright inside near the print injectors. Thank You.

Try to rebrick you printer by pulling 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 reset your printer.

If that doesn't help, try to plug your printer into a different known working power outlet.

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

When I turn on my Lexmark printer X5470 it always says to align Cartriges ins this normal?

Hello. Printer normally does the alignment printing whenever you do something on the cartridges (removing, reseating or replacing). Try to remove the cartridges from the printer. Clean the nozzles using a damp paper towel, if necessary. Close the cover. Unplug the printer from the power source. Plug it back in after 10-15 seconds. When it's ready, insert the cartridges. Let the printer print the alignment page again. Let it finish the whole page without cancelling it. Check if the problem persists. Hope this helps.

Lexmark printer model Z2300m color printer. purchased 2 days ago, took out of box and the power does not come on. i miss placed receipt, so i cant return

its hard to diagnose power issues. try another outlet and see if it works. If you truely bought it 2 days ago, ANY store will allow you to exchange for another one whether you have a receipt or not. The only reason I know that, is because I have worked retail many years in the past and have never heard of place not letting you exchange for the same item. Unless, you bought it a garage sale or something similar.

My printer will not connect for printing a letter or spreadsheets

Has it ever copied properly before?

(1) Try a power cycle: Try turning the printer off, then unplug the power supply from the printer, then unplug the USB cable from the printer then the back of the computer; wait 30 second; then plug the USB cable back into the computer, then back into the printer then plug the power supply back into the printer and turn it on – run a test print: Start>Settings>Printers>Right-click on the printer>Properties>Print Test Page

(2) Update the USB drivers

Lexmark x5470

hi zandlishop ,

The best way you can do is to - power cycle the printer- unplugging the power brick at the back of the printer and leave it for about 30 sec. then plug it back in.

-If still has the same problem -
-Search for the menu on the printer to reset to factory defaults
-It should work-

-If still has the same problem call tech support @ lexmark to update the firmware

-hope this can help you,

Despite being plugged in and the green LED light on, no display on printer

I have the same model (about a year old) but there are no lights visible on the back of my printer (neither red or green). Have you contacted the Lexmark tech advice website about this problem? They may take a few days to respond but there are numerous possibilities in trying to locate the fault (probably in the power circuitry) and it might have to take it to a repair shop to get it tested (if it is not under warranty).

No power Dacor DCM24SS

I do a lot of work on Dacors / Sharps. Can you describe what you mean by "shutting off"? When it was shutting off before, was it completely dead with no display and no beeps? Was iut shutting off during a cook cycle or just while setting there or what? When it would come back on or start working again, how long did it take to come back, or how did you make it come back on?
