Try these:
  • Plug printer straight to power outlet in the wall. Bypass any surge devices or power strips as they can draw away power from the printer.
  • Properly secure the power cord.
  • Unplug the power adapter from the printer, replug after 30 seconds. The power adapter is the rectangular black box, behind the printer where the power cord is attached. Check if it's warm or cold. It can be a defective power adapter.
  • If you have access to a voltmeter, test power adapter(30V output).

If problem continues, contact Lexmark technical support.

If it didn't come with any OCR software you can find some free OCR software by Googling free OCR. After you have the software installed, it's usually a case of browsing to the scanned image via the software and telling the application to convert the image into a Word document. Some applications have the ability convert to PDF as well. If you prefer a PDF document but your OCR application doesn't support that option, then download some free "print to PDF" software. Typically with this type of software you will not be able to edit a PDF like you will a Word document. Hope I was able to FixYa, please remember to rate my solution. Thanks.

A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).

If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
  7. Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

do not re-install,

1. disconnect the printer from the computer
2. download and install (do not install any junk which you do not want - only ccleaner!) ccleaner, choose free version (of course nothing is preventing you from purchasing other versions):
3. open ccleaner
4. go to "tools" uninstall printer and all related programs from tools, while you are at it - uninstall all junk which you accomodated and never used...
5. run (in ccleaner) "registry", repeat till you have "no errors find"
6. run (in ccleaner) "cleaner"
7. reboot your computer

check and download updated drivers/programs for your printer here (check if you run 32 bit or 64bit!):

run installation and follow instructions, this should solve your problems, if it is printing in reverse - it will be in settings of the printer, you need to revert it to "normal", or follow this little instructions...

hope this will help you - do not forget to vote...

Error messages can mean a variety of different things. Check the Lexmark website for the meaning of the error message. That is probably the simplest solution.

Baring any damage to the load or eject trays, Check the back of the eject tray with a flash light by opening the top of your printer where you insert your cartridges. (make sure power is off first so that cartridges will not move over and be in the way.) . Next, check for any obstructions of paper, dirt, or foreign objects.

Next if there is nothing to be found, use a pencil eraser and a couple cue tips and rubbing alcohol to clean residue that builds up on the rollers where the paper feeds through. Screenshot

Close the top, make sure that the load tray is not damaged and is inserted properly. (You can remove the back 2 screws on the load tray and get access to the inside to check for any other obstructions and cleaning.)

It latches into place and is intended to stay in place, once pulled out. From a Google Search:

"If you place your fingers up behind the control panel in the middle you will find a release button allowing the panel to turn back in. It is right up against the bottom straight edge underneath right behind the display and just below the scan and fax button. Press in on the edge and with two fingers while pushing in with thumb."

Have you tried to put;
1. Good cartridges
2. Install the printer's driver on your pc/laptop?

The problem could be due to a communication failure between one of the printheads (cartridges) and the All-In One (AIO) or by a short in one if the printheads. Please follow the steps below to identify and fix cartridge issues:

  1. Make sure the printer is on.
  2. Open the printer cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-In-One is busy. Note: If the carrier does not automatically move to the center, turn off the printer or unplug the printer from the power source and then carefully slide the carrier to the center.
  3. Remove both cartridges from the carrier.
  4. Close the printer cover.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in to, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.
  7. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.
  8. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Normally if you say 'Print this email' it prints all the pages automatically. Try going on to the Advanced printer section and where it says print pages from... to... give page numbers
