Question about Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

Hello, RE: LEXMARK Z1380 The light on the power button keeps flashing and im receiving a message telling me the printer cannot communicate with the PC. I have reconnected all the wires, i have also uninstalled and reinstalled the software and connected the wires from scratch, I have also checked for any firewalls and any internet security package that might interrupt the comunication. Yet i am unable to print and i receive the same message. When i plug the usb into the PC i receive a message sayin "new hardware found" and then immediately after that i receive another message saying "there might be a problem with the hardware" I would really appreciate the help as i have a couple of deadlines and the printer is essential. Thank You

This is going to sound crazy, but I just spend days with the same cannot communicate with the printer problem with my Z1300. I was ready to buy a different printer when I decided to look on Lexmark's site. The fast blinking power light indicates a paper jam. I thought... sure.. uh huh. I turned off the printer, took the stack of paper out, which didn't seem jammed at all, put one piece in, turned on the power ... and the blinking had stopped. Yep ... after doing the countless fixes I found on the net... including reinstalling drivers.. deleting usb ports.. etc... it was a paper jam! The printer works fine again. Hey.. what would you expect from a printer that cost under $25. lol

I get a message saying the printer cannot communicate with computer. Everything is connected properly. Also, the wifi light is flashing. Sometimes it prints, but it randomly cannot...


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. Reboot your computer.

Z1380 green power light flashing constantly. Cartridges not returning to right hand side of printer. No printing possible.


The flashing light on your printer could indicate either a paper jam or a cartridge problem. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. While cover is open, check for any obstructions in the cartridge carrier's path. Close the cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, insert one cartridge first. Close the cover and check for any errors. If none, re-insert your other cartridge. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear. You can also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty. If cartridges are fine, load some paper (avoid overloading). Also, use the specified paper types and sizes for your model. Try to print again.

I set up my own wireless network and now my printer will not communicate with my laptop.WIFI light flashes red. Have tried everything to reconnect. Lexmark Z2420.


I suggest you reset the Lexmark Z2420 wireless network adapter. To reset, do the following: With the printer on, press and release the power button. The printer will enter power save mode. Now, press and hold the paper feed button. While holding down the paper feed button, press and release the power button. Continue holding the paper feed button for 30 seconds. Release the paper feed button. This will reset the internal network adapter (INA). When the printer has been reset, a solid orange Wi-Fi indicator light should appear. If Wi-Fi light goes back to flashing red, you have not successfully reset the printer. Start the procedure again. Once you have a solid orange Wi-Fi light, reconfigure the printer for wireless connection. Thanks.

Lexmark C510 LCD shows underlined black boxes - not wrking


Hello you can try the following, try resetting the printer doing the following. Turn the printer off, then press and hold the arrow pointing left, the select button and the go (green) button. Hold down those three buttons at the same time and power the printer back on and wait if you see a message saying Restoring Factory Defaults. When that message appears you can let go the three buttons. If the same problem of the black boxes that flash appears then you might have a problem either with the Operator Panel or Engine Board. About the price that will run you to replace this parts I don't know.

Printer cannot communicate with the computer


With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

To fix a fouled install:
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the software asks for the printer connect it and continue

Lexmark P4350


Solution:

I have a Lexmark and it says that there is "No Loaded Paper" some times and when you click ok it keeps saying it. If the power light is flashing on the printer - try this suggestion.

Suggestion:

  1. Press the power button (Which will turn off printer.)
  2. Wait till flashing stops and printer is completely off.
  3. Press the same button which will turn on the printer.
  4. The Printer should automatically go back to printing.
  5. If it does not - Manually try printing by your self.
