Find a tight plastic locking clip on the underside of the control panel. It may be at the top middle edge on the underside. Give it a very firm upwards press and it should unlock the control panel section.

Colours not printing only black is

Make sure that you're using genuine Lexmark cartridges. If you are, try the steps below:

- Update the firmware of your printer. Just go to to download the firmware update.
- Perform a maintenance on the cartridges. To do that, on the control panel of your printer, press on Setup > Maintenance > Deep Clean Printhead.

If you still have the same problem after performing those steps, it could be a problem with the printhead. You might want to contact Lexmark's technical support.

Installed new printhead on Lexmark s305 and now my adobe photoshop elements 10 program can not scan but prints fine.

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 (if USB connected)> 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 (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).

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

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
  7. Wait until your computer 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, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website at Select your operating system, download and execute the file.

When I go to print a document, it pulls the paper through, but does not print

Try to clean the printhead nozzles on your Lexmark Impact S305 printer. From the printer operator panel, press Setup button > Maintenance > Deep Clean Printhead. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the printhead nozzles and clean them.

If that doesn't help, please visit the Lexmark support page to determine if your printer is affected with the printhead issue. Also, make sure your printer is updated. The firmware update will help give you a highly reliable print system.

Impact s305 printer won't scan. it's stuck on "downloading application list"

Try using the Lexmark Printer Home when scanning. If you have a PC, to access it click on Start > All Programs > Lexmark > Printer Home. You can scan to a .jpeg, PDF or .doc.

If you're scanning from the control panel of your printer and you're getting an error message, "Cannot Retrieve Application List", most probably your firewall is blocking your printer from downloading the applications. You might want to add the Lexmark files in the exception of your firewall. Click on the link on how to add exceptions to your firewall.

If you're trying to scan to email (email client), try to check this link:

Lexmark Impact S305 control panel problem

We had same problem and this helped us. But you have to move your finger just to the right of the ridges and press firmly- you'll hear it click as it releases

I have just bought a Lexmark S305 Impact printer/scanner/ copier. Having raised the control panel on the front, how do you stow it away?

Try as I could (Using a mirror and flashlight and feeling all around), I couldn't find a 'Lever' anywhere, but what I finally did find was that there are three thin molded plastic lines right there up under the center back of control panel. While holding the top of the printer (above the panel), and using one finger, I pushed up hard on those plastic lines. After a moment of pushing on them, I heard a 'click', and that released the panel so now it moves up & down again. It can be adjusted at whatever angle I like just like before it locked. If I want it to remain up, I just lift the panel all the way up until I hear that 'click' again. Hope this helps.
