Question about Lexmark X75 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

I have had this printer for some time & recently moved. I never had a problem before but now it blows all the circuit breakers in the apartment when I turn it on or off no matter where I plug it in. Would a new power cord help or do I need a new printer? Can't figure it out.

You may check on ebay for a power pack, otherwise you'll have to buy one from Lexmark or someone who sells Lexmark supplies.

SOURCE: Printer says 'No Paper' no

Try power cycling it first by unplugging it from the wall socket and then pressing the power button for at least 15 secs. Then plug it back in and turn on the Printer to refresh the settings. That usually solves mine. Hope that helps.

    Actually, the power cord plugs into the printer's power adapter. Please see image below:

    Smeg microwave shorting

    If it's the circuit breaker in your house or apartment that's blowing, then either you are overloading the circuit, or you have a bad breaker. Check to see what other devices might be plugged into that circuit, and move as many of them as possible to a different circuit.

    Outside main 100 amp breaker is tripping but none of the inside breakers, supposedly when dryer and tv on together but not all the time

    Am I to assume your dryer is electrical? If so, I'll guarentee it will draw MORE than 14 Amps if heating. Sorry, can't analyze your problem from here.

    My husband has recently moved & is using several electronics into our spare bedroom & he keeps flipping the breaker! We have a sylvania breakers What do I need to do to fix this problem

    Circuit breakers trip when then get hot.
    They get hot when the line draws too many amps.
    If breaker does not trip, then line overheats and causes a fire.

    So tripping breaker warns that too many watts are being used.

    Best solution is to run additional circuit into bedroom.
    Another solution is to run extension cord from another room and plug one big item onto that cord.
    I had same problem in a house we rented.
    I pulled back carpet in corner and drilled a hole into basement, and then brought extension cord up from below. When we moved, the carpet went back down.

    If you are qualified to work on circuit breakers inside the main box, you can move wire to another same-size circuit breaker to see if breaker is faulty. Do NOT put that wire on a larger amp breaker.

    Fridge keeps blowing the breaker

    Depending on what is causing the breaker to blow will be important to know. Refrigerators do draw a good bit of power on a 20 amp circuit especially when the refrigerator goes into defrost. Refrigerators are made to run on a 20 amp circuit without other machines or appliances using the same power circuit. Circuit breakers weaken over time too especially if they have more than they are. rated for plugged into the same circuit. And your circuit may be doing its job by detecting an excessive draw of power when the refrigerator is plugged in. You must have someone that knows electricity to inspect your refrigerator for shorting and the circuit it is plugged to for correct wiring for every ones safety. Thanks, Sea Breeze

    You're unit is a 31/2 ton according to the numbers.Normally, breakers will only be in a half way posistion when tripped. Yes, under most conditions, the fuse will blow before the breaker trips. I have seen this many times, the breaker may be weak, burned, loose wires and so tighten wires, check the condition of the breaker.It sounds like the breaker even though it is 60 amps, is the problem and you should replace it with out hesitating. This will solve you're problem. When you pull the breaker out, look at the metal clips that snap in on the buss bar to see if they have been overheating.And the buss bar its self. You will know. I am sure this will take care of you're problem. Good Luck,

    Ricoh ap 400n keeps blowing fuse

    This is more than likely a statement of the electrical supply to the printer.

    Laser printer's typically require a high in rush amperage to keep the fuser lamp and fuser warm. You can see the effect of this by looking at the lights in the room. If the lights dim about every four seconds its because the printer is pulling a higher amperage from your electrical system.

    Normally, laser printers are "Strongly Suggested" to be on a dedicated 20 amp line. If you are using them on a normal 15 amp line that is also supplying other receptacles and devices, when the fuser demand peaks it may be enough to trip the circuit.

    Now, there are a couple of ways to fix this. One is to upgrade the entire circuit to 20 amp. That include a 20 amp breaker, 12 AWG wire and a 20 amp receptacle.

    If you cannot do this, then switching either the fuse or the breaker or a "Slow Blow" may help you. This type of fuse or breaker will add a delay into the "trip" part of the circuit.

    Wiper fuse keeps blowing intermittently.

    It looks like the wire circuit for the wiper motor is touching the car body when shaken so the only thing you can do is shake the wires and terminals yourself while engine is running then maybe you can pinpoint where the earthing is.

    Breaker tripping

    Make sure it is plugged into a 20 amp circuit. If it is in a kitchen it should be a 20amp breaker if it trips a 20 amp breaker it needs to be replaced. If it is a new house and you plug it in in the kitchen and it trips a 15 amp breaker then the house does not meet code. ref Article 210.52(B)(1) NEC
