Question about Lexmark Z640 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Light blinks continuously....

The light on my Lexmark Z640 series printer keeps blinking. When the computer is turned on the printer makes a weird, deep whirring noise for about 30 seconds then the light flashes. I thought maybe it needed the ink cartridges replacing but the cartridges lodge at the extreme right of the printer making it impossible to see if there's anything wrong. Can I move them manually? The machine is about 6 months old and doesn't get used excessively. Possibly twice a week on average.

We changed the toner cartridge and the toner light keeps blinking..


Press and release the Continue button (green button) to clear the light sequence and continue processing the print job. If the light is still blinking, the photoconductor is almost full and should be replaced

How do i get my printer to work and stop the wifi button from flashing red? my internet is connected but the printer is not


Blinking WiFi light indicates that the printer is either trying to connect to a wireless network or not at all. Unplug the printer from the power outlet. Replug after 10 seconds. This will give enough time for the printer to reset. If WiFi light continues to blink, you may need to reset the printer's wireless network adapter. Please refer to this article: How to Reset the Z1400 and Z1500 Series Network Settings. The WiFi light will then turn off momentarily, then lights up solid orange. Launch the Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility to reconnect printer to your wireless network.

Lexmark E260dn toner light is still on after changing the toner cartridge


Toner light is ON, I would assume that the light is solid and not blinking. You can press and release to clear the light sequence and continue processing the print job. With the printer turned off, remove the toner cartridge and shake it to extend its life. Check the replacement toner cartridge if it is the one suitable for your region.


If the blinking light is on Toner Low, press and release the Continue button (green button) to clear the light sequence and continue processing the print job. If the light is still blinking, the photoconductor is almost full and should be replaced.

    The movement of the print cartridge carrier has been obstructed. Remove any objects blocking the carrier path.

    2. Open the front cover.
    3. Turn the printer back on.

    5. Close the cover. If there are no flashing lights, the color cartridge is short-circuited.

    7. If there is no error indicated by flashing lights, the black cartridge is short-circuited.
    8. If you continue to receive an error indicated by flashing lights, both cartridges are short-circuited.

There 3 light on the printer that able to indicate to user when problem occur. Find your printer error accordingly as below and may solve your printer problem.

1st button light blink rapidly = the printer may be out of paper, so load more paper and press the 1st button itself to continue. Or may be paper jam is occur, so clear the paper jam and press the 1st button light itself to continue.

If 1st button light blink slowly = mean the cartridge carriers are stuck, so raise the scanner unit and remove any object blocking the path of the cartridge carrier, make sure the cartridge are closed and installed properly, then lift the scanner unit, gently push the scanner support towards the cartridge carriers, and carefully lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed. After that press the 1st button itself to continue.

If 2nd LED light blinking = the color cartridge need to be replaced soon.

If 2nd LED light is ON = the color cartridge need to be replaced immediately.

If 3rd LED light blinking = the black cartridge need to be replaced soon.

If 3rd LED light is ON = the black cartridge need to be replaced immediately.

Hope this help.

when you turn it on, the ink cartridge holder should be moving left to right (aligning itself). make sure the cartridges are insterted correctly and that the clasps are all the way in.

Lexmark X2350 printer problem


Usually the light blinks if you have started a print job and run out of paper...it's trying to get your attention to insert more paper before it can continue. Check and see whether there are any print jobs that weren't able to conclude and delete them. Go to 1) Start, 2) Control Panel, 3) Printers and Other Hardware, 4) View Installed Printers, 5) Lexmark 2300 Series. When you double click on the Lexmark Printer Symbol, it will open up a smaller window which will show you whether there are any print jobs that are waiting to print. If there are any, delete them. Hopefully this will solve your problem.
