Okay, I just bought this same product. You need to pop the disk into the laptop or computer. If you did not get the disk, get the printer out and set up, then, plug it and afterwards, plug the usb cable to the laptop/computer and the other side in the printer, that way, the computer can recognize the printer. If it still wont do it, call costumer support, maybe the printer and your device are just not compatible.... Good Luck!

My computer doesn't recognize my printer


It's possible that the problem is with the USB port on the printer. If you have a router, you can try to connect your printer using an ethernet cable so you won't have to configure your printer using a USB cable.

Once you have connected the printer using an ethernet cable, proceed with the installation in your computer and choose ethernet as the connection type. It should automatically find the printer on your network.

My lexmark x6650 printer will not connect back online


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. If your printer is connected via USB cable to your computer, simply disconnect the printer from your computer, reboot your pc and unplug/re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When everything turns back on, reconnect the printer into the pc. Wait for the computer to fully recognize the USB connection. Try to print again.
If you're printer is wirelessly connected to your computer through your wireless network, please refer to this article for a more comprehensive instructions on how to identify and fix the communication problem - Wireless & Network Communication Issues with 2008 Lexmark Inkjet Products

You can enable printer sharing on the computer where the printer is connected, then share the printer so it can be accessed by others on the network. The steps vary depending on which version of Windows the computer is running, so use the help screen. The steps will be listed for you to follow.

On your wireless computer, add the Lexmark printer as a network printer. You will probably need to install the printer drivers, so have the CD handy or download them from Lexmark's website.

Make sure both computers are members of the same workgroup, or the wireless computer won't be able to find the printer on your network. Also, the computer the Lexmark printer is connected to must be on and running for printing over the network.

An easier way to share your printer is by using a USB print server. One example is here. The server connects to your printer by the USB cable, and by an Ethernet cable to one of the wired ports on your router. Then any computer on the network can use the printer at any time.

Lexmark Platinum Pro905 ????

Your Specification Sheet which under STANDARD BOX CONTENTS tells what was shipped with your printer. You should have received a USB cable which you can use to connect your printer to your PC.

If you want to connect to the printer through a wired network (usally via a router) then you will need to purchase a network cable, or rather a Cat. 5e cable of the appropriate length with RJ45 male connectors on both ends. This would be plugged in to the Ethernet port on the back of your computer. The reason for doing this is if you have several computers accessing your network printer they can do this directly without relying on the computer with the printer connection being turned on.

If you do not have a wired network or several computers accessing the printer you do not need to connect a network cable. Windows should detect your printer when you plug in the USB cable; it should not be necessary to work through the Add a printer function.

You don't have to choose 'wired'. You do have the option of setting up a wireless connection to your printer through a wireless network. Your printer has a built in wireless printer server and you can set up your printer to connect to your network without running a network cable.

Suggest you refer to page 101 of the User Guide for details on setting up the wireless network.

Trust this is helpful.

Wireless printer communication unavailable via USB


Hi. Hope you got it working fine now on your Windows 7. If not, go to Start Menu > Devices and Printers > right click on the Lexmark print object > Troubleshoot. Make sure the printer is on and is still connected to the computer via the usb cable.

I don't know how to make my Lexmark 4530 print wirelessly. My internet connection is wireless, but I don't know how to get my printer to print wirelessly.


download the installation software from lexmark. You will need to connect it to the computer via a USB cable to run the setup. Just follow the prompts and it will set up the printer on your wireless network. You will run this same software on each additional computer that you want to print to this printer.
