    I have a lexmark e238. Keeps showing paper jam light after cleaning rollers even though no paper is in there.

    Either paper is moving too slow through the paper path or one of your paper path sensors is not registering. Pull the paper tray out and check to make sure the little plastic sensor is swinging free. That sensor tells when the tray is empty. Follow the paper path thru the printer checking all the sensors to make sure they are "opening" and "closing".

    Lexmark E238 all lights flashing

    Turn off the Printer and Unplug it from the Power Supply.
    Remove the Cartridges from the Printer!!!!!
    On the Backside of the Cartridge you would see a Copper Stripe, Wipe the Copper Stripe using a Paper Towel!
    Reinsert the Cartridges and Restart the Printer.
    Good Luck!!!

    That indicates that you have a paper jam in the printer.

Click on this link: Just read the article thoroughly. If this doesn't help, I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support for further assistance. Thanks.

    Dell 1720dn all indicator lights flash after printer is powered on for several minutes. Once this happens, I can no longer print. If I power cycle the printer, it will function normally for a time.

    this printer is actually a modified LExmark E238...if printer under warranty, demand they replaceit.
    if all lights flash..usually means a hardware printer problem Main board.

    Toner light keeps blinking even a new cartridge on my lexmark e238

    Sorry for the delay in responding.

    Are you using a factory new Lexmark cartridge or do yo have a refilled cartridge or a cartridge from another company?

    Sorry for the bad news that follows.
    Extracted from Lexmark’s web site:
    Lexmark End User Statement of Limited Warranty for Supplies
    Lexmark International, Inc. Lexington, KY
    Not Covered:
    Warranty Service does not include repair or exchange when the problem results from accident, disaster, misuse, abuse, non-Lexmark modification (including refilling, tampered with in any way or remanufacturing), improper storage, malfunctioning equipment, laser print cartridges which are simply empty as a result of normal use, or normal wear and tear. Character or page yield is also not covered by warranty service, as it is influenced by customer application, printer contrast settings, operating environments, printer condition, and paper type.

    I know this has been on here for awhile but i decided to help

    First of all the lights are listed in the user manual for the printer. From what your described the problem looks like it is a paper jam

    for more information in regards to the lights on your printer:

    There is also information on how to get the jam out. If the printer has no jam but the light is still on try restarting the printer.

    When you click on the Print button located in File, a dialog will open asking to you to choose your printer. Make sure to select your printer (Lexmark E238) in the printer name field.

    Let me know if it works.
