I have the “won’t print in color” problem with my X, has anyone got a solution to this yet? What is the transparent encoder strip? Just select which operating system you have, download, and install. Guess what after spending 3 hours trying to call lexmark and going thru help web sites this worked. Did you get any help with this?

Please let me know if you fixed your problem with the unlock scanner situation. I will not purchase Lexmark again I look forward hearing from you. Since then, I keep getting the ‘Problem communicating with the printer’ message. And now when I open the door where the cartridges are, they don’t move to the center.

Did you ever think that maybe they weren’t worth fixing or maybe they can’t even be fixed? Not only did the printer say Unlock Scanner, it started making this horrible burning smell. Please can someone help me. If this plastic “arrow” is broken, chances are the small button underneath is not x883 actuated when the door is shut and the printer thinks the door is open. My Lexmark x83 keeps locking up.


Lost my installation CD! We recently got a new computer with XP.

Make Your Selection

If I get the opportunity I am going to take this printer straight to you Lexmark and get group of people to protest not to buy anything from your company. The printer loaded up fine, but whenever I print, my documents look like the printer cartridges are low. I close the door and press power.

I wish you all the best of luck!
