Have new router. How do I get my printer's wifi back up and running?


Reset your printer's wireless network adapter first before re-connecting it to your new router's wifi network. Check this article from the Lexmark website on How to Reset the Network Settings Back to the Factory Defaults on the 'Impact' S300 and 'Interpret' S400 Series All-in-Ones.
After resetting the printer, check this article on How to Install Lexmark S and Pro Series via Wi-Fi on Mac OS 10.x.
We hope this helps.

You'll need to reconnect your printer to your new wireless network. Here's how:
  1. Click on Start > All Programs > Lexmark > Printer Home.
  2. Click on Settings > Wireless Setup Utility.
  3. Follow the steps.
Once you already have the printer connected to your network, you'll need to update the port settings on your computer. Here are the steps:
  1. Under control panel, go to Printers and Faxes.
  2. Right click on your Lexmark icon and go to properties.
  3. Click on the Ports tab.
  4. Highlight the Pro700 Series port.
  5. Click on Configure port (it will search for all available printers on your network)
  6. Highlight your Lexmark Pro700 Series printer.
  7. Click on Close then click on OK.
You should be able to print now. If not, please click on the link for more info: http://bit.ly/lJzrw5

My lexmark z1420 has been in the loft for some time, I have switched it n anf the wi-fi light keeps flashing orange no green?


Try to print the wireless settings page to determine if your printer is still on the same wireless network as your router and computer. To print the page, follow the steps in these article on How to Print the Network Settings Page on the Z1400 & Z1500 Series Inkjet Printer; a brief explanation of its values. On the page, check the Status, SSID and also the IP address and see if it's connected to your network. Otherwise, you may need to reset your Lexmark Z1420's wireless network adapter and reconfigure it. To reset, follow the steps in this article on How to Reset the Z1400 and Z1500 Series Network Settings. Launch the Lexmark wireless setup utility to reconfigure the printer to your wireless network.
Hope this helps.

It blinks orange


The information below (could not copy illustrations) is available from:

http://support.lexmark.com/index?locale=en&page=product&productCode=LEXMARK_X4650&segment=SUPPORT&userlocale=EN_UK&frompage=null#1

I did a searcfh for 'blinking orange light' in the Got a Question field.


The Wi-Fi indicator light gives information about the status of the printer.
NOTE: Most wireless communication issues are a result of the following:
  • RF interference or wireless signal quality.
  • System of software firewall applications blocking crucial Lexmark software and ports.
  • The router has been reset. A different or new SSID(network name) and passphrase on the router creates a mismatch to those originally configured on the printer. You will need these router settings to reconfigure the printer using the included Setup Utility or Setup Assistant.
  • The printer has been turned OFF for period.
Use the table below to help determine your printer's current status, and refer to the linked articles for additional assistance.

  • Interim negotiating status while performing setup procedure.
  • Out of range or interference between printer and access point.
  • Printer unplugged for an extended period of time may cause this to happen.

Click here for an article on Signal Strength. NOTE: This article pertains to the X3500-X4500 Series printers but it is valuable for ALL wireless products.
If you are really unsure what has happened:

  • Make sure the computer is communicating over the network.

  • Reset your wireless router (AP) by turning it OFF and ON or
    remove the power supply from the back of the printer and then plug it back in.

  • Follow this link to the Wireless Setup Utility or Wireless Configuraton Utilty to reconfigure the printer.

Wireless Connection


I have the same problem and I have exhausted all options that I can think of. Last night I reset the network settings for the printer and started over and at the end, after going through the whole wizard again, it spit out a new network page and looked like the problems were fixed. (was now on channel 11,used to be on 6, also said it was connected to the wireless network when before it said it was not). I got excited thinking it had finally connected, but when I went to print a test page I got the same communication problem error message. I just got off the phone with Lexmark Support and he told me it was most likely printing to the wrong port. When I go to my printers properties page, it is printing to USB001 (Lexmark virtual printer port), and he told me it needs to be on "Lexmark 1400 Series" port. I will try to create a new port tonight and hopefully I have "Lexmark 1400 Series" as an option to choose from.

Jeez this thing is exhausting. I consider myself to be fairly computer savvy and I have wasted 4 nights working on this thing to no avail. How do people who don't know their way around a computer handle wifi printing to the 1420??
