Lexmark™ Error Codes
What are the common Lexmark error codes and how to fix them?
Lexmark Printers come equipped with a large number of features that are user-friendly too. These printers are easy to use and can be installed with minimal effort as they are compatible with most operating systems. Lexmark Printers not only give you a good printing speed but are also pocket friendly and meet your printing requirements with outstanding performance, reliability and high productivity. Although Lexmark is one of the most trusted brands, yet one might face certain issues while working with it. Once the printer gets going, you can take printouts of your photographs, worksheets etc. in color or black and white.
Some of the common Lexmark error codes that need to be fixed include:
- Error Code 10: Cover open
- Error Code 41: Requested font missing
- Error Code 31: Change envelope
- Difference between error code 20 and 21
- Error Code 24: The defined paper size is too short to print data as formatted
Error Code 10: Cover open
This error occurs when there is no EP cartridge or the printer is open. To fix this error, close the printer's cover.
Error Code 41: Requested font missing
When the requested font is not available, this error appears. To resolve this issue, install the requested font and try again (font card or software).
Error Code 31: Change envelope
The envelope size requested by the software is different than the envelope being used. Use the correct envelope size or change the settings to match the requested size. Always tuck the flap inside the envelope while printing. Also, the envelope slot should be used for printing single envelopes. For printing multiple envelopes, the In-tray should be used.
Difference between Error Code 20 and Error Code 21
Error Code 20 and Error Code 21 stand for paper jam. However, Error Code 20 appears when there is a paper jam in the input area, whereas Error Code 21 appears when there is a paper jam in the area under the toner cartridge. While resolving this issue, make sure that even the smallest bit of paper has been removed, otherwise this might cause serious damage to your Lexmark printer.
Error Code 24: The defined paper size is too short to print data as formatted
This error code appears when the defined paper size is too short to print the required data. To fix this error, use the correct paper size or modify your data accordingly.
