Question about Lexmark X1270 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Status deleting The printer prints one document, or one batch of selected documents, then the status changes from printing to deleting. The status will not change and the printer will not print subsequent documents, they will all queue behind the deleting doc. The work around is to delete all docs, switch off the printer and switch on again, although this doesn't always solve the problem. How can I get it working properly please?

What to do if after canceling the printing in queue document its status is still showing deleting ?


Give it a few minutes. Sometimes it takes awhile to delete the document.

If that fails, turn off the printer, wait a minute, then turn it back on. The document should be deleted.

Samsung SCX-4500W restore wireless printing on cryptic error


For those having trouble wirelessly printing to their Samsung SCX-4500W printer from a Windows computer, I have this "easy" 13-step process that usually fixes my most common printing problem:

The symptom:
You haven't used your printer in a couple of days and have just hit the print button in an application you wish to print a document from. Instead of your printed document gracefully emerging from your printer, a Samsung status window appears on your computer above the task tray, cryptically announcing "The current printer port is not supported for the current printer status". You scratch your head in complete confusion.

The solution:
  1. Go into the room where your printer is. Observe that it has dropped its wifi connection and not reconnected automatically - the blue light indicating wifi is no longer illuminated.
  2. Turn off the printer, wait a few seconds, and turn it back on.
  3. Rebooting always causes a blank page to be ejected - how annoying! Open up the tray and reinsert the blank sheet.
  4. Wait for the blue wifi light to come on.
  5. Return to your computer and open the printer job queue window. Locate your document in this window with "Error" status next to it: right-click on it and select restart so its status changes to "Printing".
  6. After a while, notice the status has changed to "Error - Printing" or "Error - Sent to printer". Since restarting the job was not successful, right-click and select cancel. Press the OK button in the confirmation dialog. You may have to do this a second time before the job clears.
  7. Return to the application you printed from and re-print the document.
  8. Double-click on the blue Samsung "S" icon in the task tray. A window titled Samsung SX-4500W Series will appear in the lower right. Observe the status first says "Please wait..." then show the same cryptic message "The current printer port is not supported for the printer status". Grrrr.
  9. Check if your computer really can access the printer by opening web browser and typing its ip address. For me, it is 192.168.1.70. Alternatively, click the "Printer Setting" button in the window of step 8. Observe that the printer reports it is alive and ready for action. This is good.
  10. Check if any other Samsung software is able to use the printer: Open SmarThru 4 software, select "Scan To", "Folder", then hit "Scan" button. Observe that scanning from the printer works absolutely fine. Close SmarThru. So the problem is just the crappy printer driver.
  11. Close any Samsung windows you have open. Navigate the start menu to Samsung SCX-4500W Series->Maintenance. The installer will run in maintenance mode and find your printer on the network (and show its ip address), as well as an option to use it on "Local Port". Select the printer on network and click Next. Select "Samsung SCX-4500W Series printer driver" to repair and hit Next. The driver will re-install. Click Finish when done.
  12. Return to your application you wish to print from and activate the printing of the document again.
  13. The Samsung status window will once again appear in the lower right proclaiming "The current printer port is not supported for the printer status". Ignore this stupid message and close the window. Go to the room with your printer and with any luck, you will find your printed document waiting for you!

Once you are well practiced at this, and can fully appreciate how useless Samsung's software developers are, you can just do steps 1,2,3,4, 5, 6,11,12, and 13.

How to solve 'error S01'?


1. Verify USB cable is connected directly from USB port of printer and the USB port on back of computer. If not, connect directly to both the printer and computer and try to print. If the printer does not print, go to step 3.
2. VERIFY THAT THE BROTHER PRINTER IS SET AS DEFAULT
This is especially important if you use the print icon to print from within applications. If the Brother printer is set as the default printer, it will have a check mark. If it is not set as default:
To set your Brother machine as the default printer, RIGHT CLICK on the Brother printer and select SET AS DEFAULT (PRINTER).
3. VERIFY THAT THE PRINTER STATUS IS READY AND THE PRINT QUEUE IS EMPTY
A. Click on START, RUN
B. Type: CONTROL PRINTERS and click OK.
C. Locate the Brother printer in the list and hover your mouse over the Brother printer icon. Below is an example of what you may see:
Status: Ready (Could also state: USE PRINTER OFFLINE or PAUSED)
Documents: 0 (Could be any number)
D. If there are any documents waiting in the queue, right-click on the Brother printer and select CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS, depending on your operating system. This should clear the queue.
E. If the status states: USE PRINTER OFFLINE, right-click on the Brother printer and select USE PRINTER ONLINE depending on your operating system. This should set the printer driver ONLINE.
F. If the status states: PAUSED, right-click on the Brother printer and uncheck PAUSE PRINTING. This should allow the printer to resume printing.
G. If the status is ready and no documents are in the queue, attempt to print the Windows test page. If not successful, verify the selected port. If USB is the selected port follow step 4. If USB is not selected,change the port to USB, then attempt to print the Windows test page. If not successful proceed to step 4.
4. Turn the printer OFF.
5. Close any open programs.
6. Click Start, Run, type: control printers
7. Right click Printer, left click Cancel All Documents (if available). Confirm if necessary (click OK).
8. Right click Printer, left click Delete. Confirm if necessary (click OK).
9. Left click File menu, left click Server Properties, left click Driver tab, left click print model name, left click Remove button, click Confirm.
10. Close the Print Server Properties window to return Printers and Faxes window.
11. Check that the USB cable is properly connected at both ends.
12. Turn the printer ON.
13. Wait until printer has ready light or green status, watch the Printers and Faxes window to see if printer is automatically reinstalled.
14.a. If printer was automatically reinstalled, right click Printer icon, left click Properties, left click Print Test Page button. If the printer is not automatically reinstalled, call Brother Customer Service at 1-877-Brother (1-877-276-8437).
b. If printer was not automatically reinstalled, try a new USB cable. Ifthe printer still is unable to print, call Brother Customer Service at1-877-Brother (1-877-276-8437).

My printer won't print any document since the day that i accidentally unplugged the socket while i'm printing.. need your help. i've got so much to print.. thanks..


Open Printers folder from Control panel.
Open the priter you are printing to and see if there are any documents on queue. Delete all of them (Printer/Cancel all documents). Then close the printer's windows and look the status of the printer. If it is "Offline", right click it and choose "Use Printer Online". If the status is "Paused", right click it and choose "Resume printing".

Hp 6110 printer problem


If you have Vista, you probably have to run this with administator privilages (UAC). For XP and
older Windows operating systems, you can start and stop the spooler from the command prompt
(or Start Run).

net stop spooler
net start spooler

Should remove the document from the queue.
