System error 000 carrier stall Presss power Key

I have a Lexmark X85 printer and every time i put it on it displays "system error" followed by "carrier stall" on the menu window - when i switch it off and put on it re-appears - and not allowing me to undertake any printing, scanning or copying. I have tried uninstalling and restalling - but no difference - no mention of this error in the lexmark manual. Don't know what else to do. I have a HP pavilion PC.

Would apprechiate your help greatly.

Does carriage bash against side when power up? if so encoder strip is dirty or incorrectly seated... plastic strip inside printer lines on it 1cm wide, must sit vertical in slot on carriage

 

Might be somethin stopping print head from moving along rail, check ink carts are installed correctly and fully, check for paper squashed up left and right inside ends of printer. make sure carriage moves left and right

 

Try power up without cartridges and just black and just colour cart to eleminate cart faults does error change?

I just pressed the power button while holding the carriers to the right, then cycled power again.
Seems to have solved at least the "banging" issue.

Used x4270 .no cd to download. list of printers does not inclued 4270. having problems with error 1200. took out old cartlidge and don't know how to put them back. have printer connected to computer...


Try to fix the 1200 error first. The error indicates that the cartridge carrier has stalled. Please refer to this article to fix the problem: 1200 Error Message on a Lexmark X4250/X4270/F4270 All-In-One. Once your cartridge carrier is functioning properl, re-insert your cartridges - How to Install Ink Cartridges In Lexmark X4200 Series AIO.

You can download the Lexmark X4270 driver by visiting the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/gKXn7F. Select your operating system, download and execute the file. Follow the instructions on your computer screen.

For your scanning concern, especially when scanning documents, you will need the Lexmark OCR scan software to do the job. The scan software is available only on the installation disc that came with your printer. If you lost the disc, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Carrier Stall is the error


Hi,
Please do the following..

To check the cartridge carrier:
  1. Unplug the printer.
  2. Move the cartridges to the left by hand and then take them out.
  3. Try to print without the cartridges in the carrier. Do you still receive a Carrier Stall error message?
  4. If not, put the cartridges back into the carrier and snap them in at the back. The message should no longer appear.
If the power light on the printer is not blinking, the error message may be caused by a communication error. Do the following:
  1. Remove any other devices attached to the USB/LPT port.
  2. Uninstall the Lexmark printer.
  3. Connect the printer directly to the PC and ensure that power is being supplied to the printer.
  4. Reinstall the printer.
Thank you....

I need to install a lexmark x85 printer scanner


If you need to download the software/driver, go here: http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:0:0:0
Search for your printer (X85), then select your operating system and language. After you download the file, double-click it to launch it and follow the instructions on your computer screen.

I think you just need to install the software, but if you also need to set up the hardware, refer to the instructions in the Setup Sheet, which you can find here: http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/x85/en/setup.pdf
Follow the instructions on the Setup Sheet through step 13. At step 14, rather than inserting the CD, download and install the software as I've instructed above.

Lexmark x83 carrier stall


Hello there.

I have checked lexmark's website on troubleshooting this problem for you.

As per the link here we need to try the following steps to resolve the problem.

Carrier stall" Error and the Carrier Slams in the Printer ID:ENUS12078 null.gif null.gif null.gif
If the printer carrier is slamming into the side of the printer, please try the following:
  1. Disconnect the power supply from the back of the printer.
  2. Open the front cover of the printer where the cartridges are located.
  3. Look for two black bands that span from left to right (they should have one serrated side and one smooth side). Just above the black bands there is a transparent strip; this strip is called the Encoder strip.
  4. Flick this strip lightly with your finger to make sure that it is running smoothly from left to right. You may need to do this two or three times. CAUTION: Do not pull the strip!
  5. Close the front cover of the printer and reconnect the power supply.
  6. If the problem persists, you may need to contact Lexmark Technical Support.
Let us know how this goes and we can assist you futher, if the printer is damaged and is under a year old, lexmark may be able to repair or replace it for you.

Hope this helps.
