Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced technical support :
Make sure that both your computer and your Lexmark printer are connected to your network. Restart your printer. In some cases, a simple restart can fix the issue. Unplug the printer and check if there is any paper stuck in the machine, and if the toner is installed correctly.
Among the more common technical issues that may bring down a printer are disconnected cables, malfunctioning routers, and low ink levels. Moreover, software problems such as interrupted connections or incorrect settings in your system`s drivers can also cause your printer to show up as offline.
The Blank Pages setting is set to print any `blank page` commands used by the software/program on the computer. Use the Local Printer Setup Utility program on the computer and access the printer settings. Locate the Blank Pages setting. Make sure that the Blank Pages setting is set to Do Not Print.
This is usually a problem with drivers. The only way to solve the problem is to install new drivers or update the one you have been using. Usually, weird characters appearing on your printing papers means there is no communication between your printer and the computer it is connected to.
A Printer Failure. There is a problem with the printer or ink system. Turn printer off, then on. If problem persists, contact HP. error message displays on the printer control panel, and the printer does not print.
a misprint or misspelling in a text.
There are a few things that could be the cause of this problem, including: Empty ink or toner cartridges that need replacing. Ink or toner cartridges that have become dislodged from their proper place. The wrong paper size loaded in the input tray.
There are numerous possible causes for a printer that`s randomly producing blanks. The most common ones are empty ink cartridges, improper cartridge installation, and congested nozzles. Driver and software issues can sometimes cause this problem as well.
Reset. Resetting the printer stops printing and clears the current print job received from the active interface. You may want to reset the printer when there is a problem with the print job itself and the printer cannot print successfully.
Make sure that the printer is on the same network with the computer. Make sure that you are using a known working Ethernet cable. Make sure that the Ethernet cable is connected at the back of the printer to the network router, switch, or other network source to which the computer is also connected.

Lexmark paper feed problems
ANSWER : On my X204n Lexmark laser printer, it was doing the same thing you described – basically sounded like it was trying to pick up the paper from the tray and then failing after several seconds. When you’d open the paper tray, the paper looked like it had been partially taken up with some black scuff marks on the paper that lined up with the rollers that take up the paper. I inspected the rollers and although they looked a bit smooth and worn, didn’t seem like they should be a problem. However, this particular model has just a rubber tire almost like a car tire – the rubber can come off the hard plastic wheel on the inner portion. So I popped off the two rubber “tires”, turned them inside out and put them back on. When turned inside out, the rubber looked nice and … rubbery and had a lot more grippy feeling to them. The very first printing attempt after that and the paper sucked up perfectly with no problems. I think the problem is solved! So if you have similar “tires” that take up the paper, try flipping them and see if it works for you too.

lexmark C544 prints yellow streaks
ANSWER : Are the streaks repeating defects or does it run top-down on the right or left side of the paper ?If you have a vertical yellow shade on the paper, it’s probaly the yellow developer unit which causes the problem. You then can either replace the developer only or (depending on the total number of pages printed, check the statistics !) the complete imaging kit which consists of all four developers and the imaging basket with the Photoconductors.If you see a repeating defect, you should at first print out the print defects page (menue\reports\print defects). Compare the yellow streaks with the printed scales. Above the scales it tells you which component should be changed.
