Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Display says "NeverErr:0xAF86" and doesn't work

A night of thunder and lightning smoked my ADSL, phone line and the printer. It just didn't power on.
As I don't need fax facilities, I disconnected the fax/modem flat cable inside. Done so, it powers on, but displays "NeverErr:oxAF86" and doesn't work.
Any idea how to disable fax/modem and keep printer and scanner working?

the printer may have something stuck between the rollers that take out the paper, mine had 3 rubber bands that I accidently dropped in there, I turn it off for a minute and now everything is working good I hope this helps.

I have an X215 also. It is not built to suit a duo line hence no fix is available.

Wait until the printer cools and try again. As you said, you've tried from different power sources (including a different outlet). If still the same problem, unfortunately, your printer got the "hit" instead of the protected power strip.

SOURCE: i installed a new lexmark Z645 in my HP

I have seen that in most of the cases (with lexmark and dell printers) it is fixed by reinstalling the printer software. Be sure that you completely remove the older drivers using the cd or using add/remove programs

SOURCE: do you need an extra phone line for a fax on your printer

it depends on what type of printer you have...i actually have an HP officejet j3500 series, it a fax, printer,scanner and copier in one.. when im using it for sending fax messages, i just dial the number where im sending it and it automatically faxes (phone keypad and handset is included)... and i use it as my printer too so its already connected to my pc..so easy to use...


but but but... i actually connected a separate phone line (our original phone from our provider) to the hp j3500 series cuz sometimes i need to speak first to thr person im sending fax before i send the message... i think that is for manual sending of fax...

so if you want to send manually (speaking first to the person before sending) a separate phone line is required (connected to ur fax)

but if u want autofax, then i dont think its necessary...

there u go...

SOURCE: The control panel display is blank on my lexmark x6570 printer

If the LCD on the operator panel constantly displays black bars/boxes or other unusual characters, take the following steps:
1. Disconnect the power supply from the printer.
2. Wait for about one minute, then reconnect the power supply and check the LCD display.
3. If black boxes/bars or unusual characters are still displaying constantly, move the power supply to a different power outlet.
4. If the black boxes/bars or unusual characters are still displaying, the scanner ribbon cable may need to be reseated. Do the following:

1. Lift the scanner flatbed. (Open the printer as if attempting to install cartridges.)
2. Look in the back right corner of the 6150/70 for an access cover.
3. Press firmly on the front right corner of the access cover to reseat the scanner ribbon cable that is located underneath the access panel.

Cannot receive faxes


The storm has likely damaged the phone line, or the ADSL microfilter (if you have one). Which is why it thinks a phone on the fax line is off the hook. Check your line for breaks and your ADSL filters for a blown filter.

Hello,
Do you have ADSL internet in your new place? If so you will need an ADSL filter plugged into the phone outlet and plugged into your fax machine. so it would look like phone wall jack--->filter-->fax machine.
ADSL internet creates it own jabber or digital noise in the line and the filter will stop your a analog device from hearing the noise. If you don't have a filter for your phone as well, you should get one. Without filters your ADSL internet will be slower as well. Your ADSL modem should have came with at least 4 filters, if not they can be purchased at your local Bestbuy, staples or computer place. NOTE: Filters only work if you have ADSL or DSL internet.
If you do not have ADSL or DSL internet and still have noise you may have to call your phone service provider to get them to diagnose your line issues. They can fix some noise issues from their end.

From your description the HP printer is damaged beyond repair, when a lightning strike occurs it also went through the power supply affecting the main board and destroying ic's and other parts. It is more than likely the interface cord from the computer to the printer also took a jolt hitting the printer from both sides finishing off any chance of recovery, you would be further ahead replacing the item.

Only displays bars when you power up`


No surge protector is going to stop a lightning strike. It's just way too powerful.
1. Make sure you've unplugged, waited 10 seconds, plugged it back in. That's more than the on/off button does.
2. If your PC will communicate with the printer at all, Lexmark has a program that will reset it. It's located here: http://support.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/knowledgebase.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:520:0:0&docid=ENUS25837
