Re: lexmark t420 all leds are on
What this light sequence means: • The printer is processing a request to cancel the current print job. • The printer is resetting to the user default settings. Any active print jobs are canceled. A user default setting is one you select and save which is different from the factory default setting. A user default setting remains in effect until you make another selection and apply it or until you restore factory default settings. What you can do: Wait for the message to clear. It clears when the printer finishes processing the cancellation request or when it resets to the user default settings.

I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
