    I have the same problem. Have run paper through from both ends to be certain the pathway is clear, but still get the paper jam message. Any remedy?



1 Answer

I have the same problem. I think my printer is being sabotaged because I keep ignoring the request to register the printer. I'm going out to buy another printer, but it damn sure will not be a Lexmark.

Fuser error on lexmark c543, what is it and how do I fix it? Thanks

Fuser error indicates that the printer/MFP has detected a problem with the fuser unit.However, certain rare occurrences, such as a power fluctuation or a static discharge in the vicinity of the printer/MFP, can cause a false error messages to appear.
1) Make sure printer is plugged to wall
2) make sure printer has been in turned on in ambient temperature for 30 min. 3)Power off the printer/MFP, wait 30 seconds, and then power it on again. Did the error message return? 4)If possible, connect the printer/MFP's power cord directly into a grounded wall outlet. In rare instances, a surge protector, extension cord or uninterruptible power supply (UPS), can generate false error messages. Verify also if the printer works on a 110 or 220 volts source. Make sure that the power outlet matches its working voltage rating.
If you still get the error message, I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support.

Lexmark E450dn will not power on, power cord is working

This issue may be due to one of the following:

  • An incorrectly set power switch.
  • An improperly functioning power outlet, surge protector, or power supply backup.
  • A poorly connected power or data cable.
  • A defect with a third-party (i.e. non-Lexmark) option such as a memory card.
  • An incorrectly connected or malfunctioning optional paper tray.
  • A malfunctioning printer component.
Please try the following steps:

Step Action 1 Make sure the power switch is in the "on" position. If it is, power off the printer. 2 If your printer's power cord is plugged into a surge protector or uninterruptible power supply (UPS), unplug it and connect it directly to a grounded wall outlet. Some of these devices can interfere with consistent electrical flow and cause the printer to fail to power up properly. 3 Disconnect the power cord from the back of the machine and then reconnect it. Make sure the power cord is plugged in all the way. 4 Disconnect any data cables (parallel, USB, Ethernet) from the rear of the printer. Any defect in a data cable may cause an electrical short circuit that could cause a loss of power to the printer. 5 Turn the printer on, this time with only the power cord connected and plugged directly into a grounded wall outlet. 6 If the printer still fails to power up, power off the printer once more. Verify that the outlet is working properly by connecting another device to it to see if it receives power. You can also try plugging the printer into a different grounded outlet. 7 If possible, try another printer power cord. 8
Verify that the printer is the correct voltage type for the environment in which it is being used. A 110V (low-voltage) printer will not work properly in a 220V (high-voltage) environment, and vice versa.

  • NOTE: Look at the rear of the printer and locate the electrical specifications sticker. Verify that the voltage rating on the sticker is the correct voltage for your printing environment (i.e. 110V or 220V).
Remove any third-party (i.e. non-Lexmark) options, such as memory cards, as they may interfere with proper printer functioning. Also remove any paper-handling options such as an optional second paper tray. 10
Attempt to power on the printer once more with all options removed, having verified that other devices work from that power outlet.
If there is still no power, the printer may require service to fix the issue. Please contact Lexmark Technical Support or a local service provider.

Can't get carrier jam unjammed

Try to remove the cartridges from your printer. While the cover is open, check for any obstructions in the cartridge carrier path. Check the encoder strip (transparent strip) and make sure it's still in its place and not dislodged or loose. Close the cover. Unplug and replug your printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges. Try to print again. If problem continues, please contact Lexmark technical support for assistance. Thanks.

Lexmark x3470 message "printer cartridge missing"

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
