When technical difficulties arise, it is time to troubleshoot. When you troubleshoot a Lexmark laser printer, you will run a few tests to diagnose the problem and then, hopefully, fix it. Lexmark has tech support, but first let's take a shot at fixing it yourself by troubleshooting.

Troubleshooting 101
1.Check to see if the printer is online. Might seem like a no-brainer, but it happens more often than you would think. Make sure the printer is plugged into the wall and powered on.

2.Check the printer's status. If there is a flashing light or an error message on the LCD screen, you have a problem. Refer to the manual to see what is wrong or if it is an obvious message like "Out of paper," then fix the problem.

3.Refill the paper. This one is easy, too. Pop open the paper tray and add some more sheets of paper. Be sure to fan the paper to get rid of static and be sure to insert the paper correctly. There should be some indicators on the printer to help.

4.Check the toner. The printer's screen will usually let you know, or a message will pop up on the computer. Other printers will actually eject a cartridge when it is spent, so check the reservoir.

5.Replace the toner drum. When printouts get fuzzy or faded, it is about time to replace the toner. You'll get an error message for this too.

6.Look to see if the cables are connected correctly. USB cables and parallel cables can easily get knocked loose, so make sure they are all pushed in firmly. Keep in mind that some printers are wireless.

7.Check the network. If everyone in the office is having printer problems, then it is probably a network issue and you should contact the network administrator.

8.Reinstall the drivers. If you have recently installed new software or the printer is printing strange characters, it is probably a driver issue. Visit the Lexmark website and download new drivers from the support section.

9.Check for paper jams. There are a couple doors you can open safely to check for paper jams. Clear them out carefully.

Troubleshooting anything is a process. Windows has a troubleshooting printer wizard, but it rarely seems to work. Troubleshooting printers is fairly easy work. Take one step at a time in troubleshooting, and then after each step, see if the problem is fixed. Brother printers are fairly easy to use, and you should be able to take the following steps to fix almost any problem.


1. Check the printer for any jams or blockages, and remove any that exist.

2. Delete any print jobs in the queue. Go to the printer's control box and double click on the printer you want, then select any print jobs and select "Delete".

3. Turn the printer completely off and unplug it. Wait about 30 seconds and turn the printer back on.

4. Restart the computer. Close all your programs, shut down the computer and wait a few seconds. You may want to turn the printer off again. Restart the printer and the computer.

5. Go back to the printer panel and select the printer, and then select "Delete." Select the "Add Printer Wizard" and add the printer again.

6. Download the latest drivers by going to Brother's website and finding the latest driver revisions. Right click on the printer, and click "Properties." Look in all the different tabs to find a button that says something similar to "New Driver" or "Update driver." After selecting, point the wizard to find the new drivers that were downloaded.
