I have a Lexmark X8300. All was ok till recently. I can print out anything from the computer but can't use the copy feature. Also, all of the lights stay on - the copy light, fax light, scan light,...

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. 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. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


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

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc 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, then try to print again.


You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/eO4Y77. Select your operating system, download and execute the file.


If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Hi i have a Canon MP830 and have replaced all the ink cartridgers and they all light up but my printer wont print,fax,copy.It sounds like it is printing but the pagers come out blank.It won't even send...

Some laptops cannot run some printers or scanners. Make sure your laptop can handle running the printer from a usb port. It might help to have your laptop plugged into AC power. Also, make sure you have the most current printer drivers for your particular OS installed. If your laptop can't run your printer from its usb port, you can probably connect the printer to a desktop usb or a printer port, then print from your laptop through a home network.

My X8350 stopped working this week. I have power

HI,
Please follow the instructions given below to know exactly when the light is blinking:
1. Disconnect the USB cable and the printer power cable.
2. Please disconnect the power supply from the back of the printer.
3. Then remove the cartridges from the printer.
4. Please reconnect the power supply back and turn on the printer.
5. If lights are blinking then printer encoder strip is most likely the problem. Unplug the
power from the printer. Open the front cover and move the cartridge carrier to the center.
You should see a white ribbon cable, a thin plastic strip and a black belt with teeth.
6. The thin plastic strip is the encoder strip. It rides in a sensor on the back of the
cartridge carrier that you will not be able to see. Reach in with the first finger of
either hand and carefully strum the strip as if playing a guitar.
7. The strip will need to be lowered slightly and brought towards you slightly. Please be
careful not to break the strip or your printer will not function. Once you believe the
strip is set correctly, plug the power back and let us know if the lights are still
blinking.
8. If you cannot repair the strip, please let us know so that we can assist you further.
Please Note: Fixing the encoder strip is a delicate procedure. During the troubleshooting,
if the strip breaks, you will not be able to use the printer. We will replace the printer,
only if it is under warranty.
9. However, if lights are not blinking then try inserting one cartridge at a time and check
if you can see any lights blinking. If light blinks with one cartridge then that cartridge
is defective.
Next, lets try to print the self test.
Begin by disconnecting the power supply from the wall (not the back of the printer) for at
least "30 seconds." This is essential. Then plug the printer back in and follow these
steps:
1. Press the "Copy" button.
2. Press the "Menu" button.
3. Press the down arrow button once or until the screen displays "Maintenance."
4. Press the check mark button to select the "Maintenance" menu.
5. Press the down arrow button three times until the screen displays "Print Test Page."
6. Press the check mark button to select this. The Self-Test will start printing.
The self-test should at least print out a set of either black or color bars, if not both
(if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously.) Should this
test fail, try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take
paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware
issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any
cartridges installed, run the self-test again with the color cartridge installed. (If you
have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the
black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail,
please let me know.

I have a hp 1150 printer after initiallizing all 3 lights r on. What might b the problem.

I went to the HP web site. If the three lights are blinking in turn, the printer is still trying to initialize or clear a previous job. If all of the lights are on but not blinking, you should turn off the printer and then turn it back on. If that doesn't help, turn it off and unplug it for 5 minutes before plugging it back in and turning it on. If the printer still gives an error, contact HP. If the three lights are blinking simultaneously, you have a memory error. However, the DIMMs are not replaceable on the HP 1150, if I understand correctly.

I hope this helps. (Please note: on many USB printers, it is useful to unplug the USB cable from both the printer and the computer, as well as unplugging the power cable when attempting to clear an error.)

All the lights on my HP 1350 printer are blinking and it will not print. Normally where you could put the number of copies i " E" is in thaat spot.

In addition to providing information about current tasks, the lights on the front panel can also indicate error conditions, as described in the table below:
If the On light, Check Print Cartridge light, Check Paper light, and Start Copy, Black and Start Copy, Color lights are all flashing, do the following:
1 Verify that the front-panel overlay is attached to the HPPSC.
2 Turn your HPPSC off and on by disconnecting the power cord and reconnecting.

Alternatively,

All ights blinking: An error caused the HPPSC to stop functioning.
1 Turn the HPPSC off and then on.
2 Restart your computer.
3 If the problem is not corrected, unplug the HPPSC and plug it in
again.
If the problem persists, contact HP.
