hey guys, i'm new to this forum and looking for a little help. my printer keeps turning on by itself and then turning back off. it's a lexmark 5400 and i run xp on my p.c. i have 4 different anti-spyware and avg anti-virus and everything seems to be in order otherwise. any ideas on what this could be? thanks in advance.

might ask if you have sp 2 installed and what DO you have protection and av wise on there ;can you list them all?

and how often and how frequently DOES the printer have a mind of its own??::))

have you tried using a different power socket?

When printers play up it's nearly always solved by reinstalling the driver, but in your case it does sound as if it's a loose wire. As ambra4 also says, it's not a virus problem.

thanks for all your responses, i could'nt get back to you cause i guess i sent my question to the wrong forum. i ended up uninstalling and reinstalling the software and so far it has been behaving. thanks!
