How to solve 108.xx, 108.08 error on Lexmark printers

A 106.xx, 107.xx, 108.xx, or 109.xx error indicates a problem with one of the printhead colors.

Solution 1:
  • Power off the printer;
  • Wait 5 minutes
  • Power on.

Solution 2:
  • Connect the printer's power cord directly into a grounded wall outlet. A surge protector or uninterruptible power supply (UPS) can generate false error messages.

Solution 3:
  • Turn off the printer.
  • Take off the back cover. 
  • It turn out there is an IDE like cable that come out over the top edge of the motherboard. It is plugged into a receptacle that is also near the top of the edge of the motherboard. 
  • Pull out the cable and re-insert it into its receptacle. 
  • Also move the metal clip (already on the cable) over the receptacle. 
  • Fire back up the printer and after a longish calibrating and setup period it will print out several reports and test pages just fine.

Solution 4:
  • Contact Lexmark Technical Support
