    Hopefully this is a stupid question and it's easy to answer, but for some reason my printer won't print. It is a "Lexmark Z43". The power light on is constantly blinking and I don't know why, and that may be the problem. And even when I unplug and plug back in the printer, it goes back to blinking and I cannot turn it off.

    This may be part of the problem for it not printing. The printer is connected properly and everything, and I've tried every other port, and still, it doesn't do anything. Can anybody please give me a suggestion on what to do to solve this problem? Thanks!

    I've only ever had HPs, but if there are two buttons on your printer, press the one that isn't the power button.

    Perhaps you should consult the manual?

    Well, the other button is only the paper feeder, so that can't be it, and I took out all the paper, so it's not a paper jam.

    I checked the manual, and it said that my print cartridge carrier has stalled, and to check the screen for any messages (which there weren't any). It then proceeds to tell me to turn printer off, wait a few seconds and then turn it on again, but this didn't do anything to help.
