Question about Lexmark (09A1501) for Optra T Series Printers
Will not print. On/off light will not turn off. Printer error says shut scanner lid, but it is shut. I have turned unit off and on numerous times and disconnected power source and back on. Also, deleted and reinstalled lexmark printer software. Any suggestions? Thanks.
Some place on the underside of the lid there will either be a magnet of some type that contacts the base when closed. or a tab of some sort that goes into an optical sensor to tell the printer the lid is closed. i dont know this machine but i fix printers for a living. this is not a software issue. sensor problem yes. look on the back of the lid where the hinge is look for a wire to those hinges. if this unit has such a wire check it for damage.

back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.
2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers
3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
4. Reboot your pc.
5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.
6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB
connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a

verify that the problem is fixed.
