Sounds like switch inside operations panel has broken, there is no reset that will fix it, will need new operations panel.

the reset code on this machine is menu # 2 8 6 4 then maintence shows enter 99, the first bit must be done super quick.

    Will not switch to copy mode

    Make sure the Fax Mode button is not stuck in the printer. If not, unplug the power supply of the printer. The power supply is the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. Then, hold down Start and Cancel buttons at the same time while plugging back the power supply in the printer. Hold down the two buttons firmly while the printer is powering on until Language Selection appears on the LCD screen. Then, release the two buttons. Choose your preferred language. Set your printer like how you set it the first time. If this doesn't help, I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support for further assistance.

    I finally got a solution to my problem, which is the same as this one. When trying to scan via USB, you have to make sure the unit is set to USB. On the top panel just above the LCD display, is 3 buttons, Copy, Fax, Scan. Hit the SCAN button, till the display says USB SCANNING. Then try to scan again. Good luck!

    Black page printwhen I try to copy or fax from my hp 6110 printer

    The printer isn't shot, but the scan assembly is, it sounds like either the scan lamp is dead or the sensors in the scan assy. You should also be getting a scanner error. I would try the reset, powering up with either the #3 or #6 buttons pushed, and see if a reset helps.

    Phantom jams & button undetection

    Sounds like a button may be stuck or something. Reset machine by powering off, press and hold start button at same time while powering machine back up. Hold the start button down for a few seconds and release. This should help. Let me know if it does not and I may be able to walk you through another bit harder reset.
