When I switch the printer on the power light just flashes intermitently, it will not print.  I am thinking this may be a hrdawrae issue. Can someone please advise.

thanks in advance

    Is it still under warranty?

    If you have multiple flashing lights then it is likely to be a problem with either your ink cartridges or the cartridge transport mechanism.  If it's just the power light Lexmarks classically have a "12 flash" indication for an error.
