Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

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.

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...

What happen when a adsl line work with a phone but not with a router


The phone line does two jobs. Voice phone which is what it was originally used for and ADSL modem which works at a high audio frequency.
Somewhere between the phone socket and the modem should be a filter splitter. One part goes to the phone and the other to the router. Make sure you have that.
The modem will have a power light and several additional lights. Assuming the power light is on we are interested in two of them; The ADSL light and the Internet light. When you switch the modem on you should first see the power light flash then go solid. Then the ADSL light will flash and then this should go solid. If this light does not come on then you have not plugged the phone wire in properly. If this light just keeps flashing slowly then the modem can't see an ADSL signal on the phone line. If you have a spare router you could try it and see if the ADSL light goes solid on that.
If the ADSL light is fine then the modem has locked onto the signal on the phone line, sync'ed. If not then this is the problem you must solve. Ask your ISP if service is set on your line.
The next light is the Internet light, this maybe a symbol like an i or a world. This light will begin flashing then go solid. It will flash with Internet traffic. This means you have Internet, as far as the modem is concerned. If this light does not stay on then your ADSL account name and password maybe wrong. You can correct this but that's a different question you need to ask.

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.

Well I think that the console might of had been damaged by lightning thats why when theres a thunder storm you should always unplug your consoles so they won't get hit by lightning I always unplug mine when theres a thunder storm. Well the sound module inside of the console is broken then so you could send it into console solutions then they repair old systems too.

I have n 95 china phone i need to use internet connection


You can go on internet via your service provider or if you have an ADSL modem,you can use the WiFi facility on the phone.If you don`t have ADSL,speak to your local land line provider for an ADSL subscription.Nice and handy to have a system like that.You can go on the internet from anywhere in your house or bed,day or night and it costs you only land line subscription.

Turn the monitor off.
Unplug it from the AC power.
Reconnect it, turn it on, and see if it returns to "normal".

Lightning Storm/Affinity Washer


During a lightning storm, a lightning strike could have induced a high voltage surge in your incoming power lines. Left unprotected from these power surges, the weakest link ( normally low voltage electronic controls) are the most susceptable. Just because you had power available at the wall receptacle after a storm doesn't mean that your washer control system wasn't exposed to one of these surges and got damaged. On the contrary, it is extremely likely that the washer took a 'hit' and was damaged.Other devices plugged into the same receptacle may have survived that hit because electricity travels the path of least resistance.. In this case.. that path may have been thru your washer.. My point being is that your washer could have sustained a power surge and was damaged so don't rule that out. Of course, that surge could have taken an internal fuse or other component out too..
