Printer keeps saying insert memory card

My printer keeps saying insert memory card and will not let me print anything. I have my computer connected through the USB cable, I pulled my printers up on the computer and it showed them offline. Tried connecting online and it now shows error. I'm completely illiterate in these matters.

Memory card error


view & print button is used for viewing the content in the memory card if it is inserted in your printer. If you are giving job from computer and it is not getting printed try the following steps.

1. check the cable between computer and printer.
2. check the printer queue ( see a printer icon on the right bottom of the screen near time). if it is there double click and check whether any document is pending in the queue. if so cancel all pending job and restart the computer and try printing again.

P350 lexmark saying that a memory card is not present yet it is.also blue tooth on phone cannot connect to printa allthough it is all turned on.


Make sure you are inserting a compatible memory card for your model. Below is the list of compatible digital media memory cards for the Lexmark P350 printer:
  • CompactFlash I & II
  • Sony Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO
  • Secure Digital (SD) Card
  • MultiMediaCard (MMC)
  • xD Card
  • Sony Memory Stick Duo (with adapter)
  • Mini Secure Digital (Mini SD) Card (with adapter)
  • Sony Memory Stick PRO Duo (with adapter)
  • SanDisk TransFlash Memory Module (with adapter)
  • RS-MMC (with adapter)
Guidelines to print via bluetooth:
  • You can print photos from a Bluetooth-enabled device such as a camera phone using a USB Bluetooth adapter.
  • Make sure that the Bluetooth Enable and Discovery Mode selections on your printer are set to On.
  • Insert a USB Bluetooth adapter into the PictBridge port on the front of the printer.
printmastert_72.jpg Note: Bluetooth adapter sold separately.
  • Once the printer detects the Bluetooth adapter, the following message appears on the printer display for five seconds: Bluetooth Dongle Connected.
  • To print photos from your Bluetooth-enabled device, see the documentation that came with the product.

Printer wont read SD cards does read sony memory


If it does not seat (fit) properly, why say the printer will not read SD cards? It certainly will read SD cards that are supported. You can still upload to computer and print from there as you suggested.

I am trying to print a regular Word document but I keep getting a message on my printer that says "insert card." It will not print any document.


If this printer reads memory cards then in the menue on the printer it might be set to read from card. Set it to print from the port you have plugged into it from the computer. It will be in settings on the printer.

How do you transfer photos from memory card inserted in HP C5280 printer to my computer?


You cannot read that memory card inserted in HP printer to your Computer because that HP Card Reader port is only for direct access printing from memory card.

All you have to do is use a Multi-memory card reader into the PC where connected to USB port.

I'm sure 100 works!
Good luck!

Memory stick too small for my printer


Sound like your printer is not designed to read memory sticks. You will need a card reader that reads memory sticks. An inexpensive multi card reader for about $10. should do the trick. They only work on a computer though. So you can see/read the files on the memory stick, download them to your computer, edit and/or print them. To me, this is the logical way to do it. The screen on the printer is too small to make good judgement calls on cropping and you can't edit them either.

Printer isn'treading card


According to Lexmark's website, the printer will not read a memory card larger than 256MB. They specifically mentioned xD cards, but not cover the other types of cards. I have a 512MB SD card, and had the same problem, so I would guess it can't read anything over 256.
