You must make sure that you install the software BEFORE you physically connect the printer. Once the drivers and/or software is installed, THEN connect it. Windows will recognize it, auto-load the driver and you're printing.

If you already hooked it up and the printer is in your printers folder, delete it, disconnect the printer's USB cable and follow the above steps :)

Hope this helps - remember to rate!

Try using the Lexmark Printer Home. To access that, on your computer, click on Start > All Programs > Lexmark > Lexmark Printer Home.

If you don't see that option in your computer, just insert the installation CD and install the Lexmark Printer Home software.

Ur equipment is too hard to connect iam not paying 4 tech support i have a brand new kodak printer that will not work even with computer savy people trying. I have a laptop and a wireless router and...


Please give more information so we can help you such as the make/model of the printer and laptop system, and if the printer came with a USB cable and a CD. Also, what you have already tried would be helpful so we don't tell you do redo things that don't work.

Sometimes you have to physically connect the two devices first and install the driver on the laptop before it will communicate wirelessly. And depending on your laptop, operating system, and the make/model of your Kodak printer, the process will be a little different getting into the properties and preferences to do all of this.

Why won't my printer let me scan my document to the computer?


Could be a number of things. I would suspect an incorrectly installed printer program. I'd uninstall the printer software and restart the computer and then reload.
If the printer is a HP, don't plug it in until the software tells you to. Otherwise it won't work properly.

You wouldnt not as long as you have a wireless router hooked up so the printer can communicate with your pc. If you dont have wireless router then yes you would need wire. Even though printer is wireless it has to communicate wirelessly with something..
