The power cord for this printer has a small, round connector on the printer end. I believe it is on the back right side (facing the front of the printer). It should be next to the USB connection.

My lexmark s405 printer do not turn on

If you are encountering power problems with your printer, please go through the following checklist:

  • Make sure the power cord is plugged in securely and directly to the power outlet. Power surge protectors can draw power away from the printer.
  • Disconnect the power cord from the power outlet and the back of the printer and then reconnect it.
  • Check the power supply box (if there is one) to see if it is warm or cold, as there could be a defective power supply issue.
  • If there is access to a voltmeter, test the power supply to ensure that it registering the correct amount of voltage (most Lexmark printers have a 30Volt output).
  • Make sure the correct power supply is connected to the printer.

I have a Lexmark Z605 Printer, got it from someone, but,..hiw do I apply power to it? see no outlet???

Behind the Lexmark Z605 printer, the power supply (rectangular black box) goes into the power supply connector/slot. Refer to the image below.


The power cord then plugs into the power supply from your power outlet in the wall.
If you don't have the power supply, please contact Lexmark technical support for assistance.

Simply, it will not turn on.

Go through the following checklist:
  • Make sure printer is plugged in straight to the power outlet in the wall. Bypass any surge devices or power strips, they tend to draw away power from the printer.
  • Unplug then replug power cord.
  • Unplug the power adapter from behind the printer and check if it's warm or cold. It could be a defective power supply issue.
  • If you have access to a voltmeter, test power supply. Most Lexmark printers have 30Volt output.
  • Make sure the correct power supply is connected to the printer.

Thank you for choosing Lexmark.

My printer does not turn on?iam pushing the on button.

Unplug the power supply from the printer. The power supply is the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. With the other end of the power cord still plugged in to the power outlet, the power supply of your Lexmark X5650 should have a green light on around the silver contacts. If not, you might have a defective power supply. If that's the case, I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support for the power supply request. If there is, plug it back in the printer all the way through and in a correct position. Printer should power on automatically, otherwise, press the power button. If printer is still not powering on, it might be defective now. Contact Lexmark Technical Support for further troubleshooting.

Power failure

Unplug the power supply(the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached) from the printer. With the power cord plugged in to a known working power outlet in the wall and the other end securely plugged in to the power supply, check for voltage output. If still none, Lexmark may be able to send you a new power supply for free. You can contact Lexmark at 1-800-LEXMARK(1-800-539-6275).

No power unless power button is held is there a reset process

With the power cord still plugged in to the power source, unplug the power supply (the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached) from the printer. Give it 10-15 seconds before you plug it back in. If the printer won't power on automatically, press the Power button. If that won't do it, plug printer straight to a known working power outlet in the wall without using any power strips/extensions. Make sure power cord has no physical defects and properly secure it to the power supply. If still that won't do it, try to contact Lexmark. You might have a defective printer already. I hope that your printer is still within warranty. If not, I hope Lexmark will be kind enough to replace that for you.

Lexmark 6675. Power won't come on. Power cord

your power supply (black box) is working fine if it has green indicator light on. Make sure you're plugging the power supply all the way in the slot. The power supply can be plugged in an incorrect position so try to double-check that you are plugging it in correctly. Hope this helps.
