I have just bought a lexmark x4550 all in one. I have uploaded the cd software, followed all instructions and have been able to print test pages. But when i go to print a document, the application quits and it says that there may be a problem with a print quality plug-in?? I have a mac book pro laptop.

    hi, thanks for the reply but i have re-installed the software twice!


    Do you think it could be something to do with a driver. I'm not sure what a driver actually is! Do i have to download one?

I Found a Fix for Mine!!!
I had this same exact problem. I just bought a Macbook pro with OSX 10.7 Lion, and installed the lexmark x4550 software. It connected to the network and printed a test page, but then whenever I tried to print, it said the printer was offline.
Here is the solution:

  1. Make sure you download and install the latest Lexmark X4550 driver from apple.
  2. Make sure your printer is connected to the same wireless network as your mac. If it isn't, follow lexmark wireless setup assistant included on software disc. This link may also help http://www.iseff.com/post/165107292/how-to-wirelessly-set-up-a-lexmark-x4550-printer (ignore step 6)
  3. Open apple System Preferences > Print & Scan
  4. Under the list of printers, click the + icon
  5. Click the IP icon at the top
  6. Select HP Jet Direct from the Protocol drop down menu
  7. Type in your printer's IP address (found on the test page from the printer, or through the the printer's control screen settings > network setup > TP/IP > View IP address)
  8. Select Auto Select from the Print Using drop down
  9. Then click Add
Good Luck

    it is possible that you have a prob w the driver, the driver is a software that allows your computer to communicate with external devices like printer. if you have a wrong driver,or wrong OS platform like PC or MAC, wrong version, wrong model number installed you will have these problems.



    i suggest go to lexmark website and download the latest driver and software for your particular unit, be mindful that you have MAC.



    i hope you will resolve this asap



    cheers
