    Hello all, it's not often I have a problem...but it's just one of those days...

    My laser printer (Lexmark 4039 10R) stopped working a few weeks ago, and always gives me this error:

    I found this article


    however, I can't do numbers 1 and 2 because i can't access the menus because of the error.

    So I'm at number 3...what does a printhead look like? Where should I look?

    Look at the cartridge cradle and there should possibly be a small circuit chip that the cartridge makes contact with.
    If you can take the whole assembly out with your type of printer , having removed the ink cartridge, do so.
    If its possible, you can try to clean this and the underneath path manually with isopropol alcohol used for cleaning cds etc.
    A similar sort of thing used to happen with old Cannon printers .

    there are no ink cartridges in laser printers...it's toner.

    and i've looked high and low, EVERYWHERE for gold contacts...they are not in plain sight, even with the toner removed.
