Please check usb cable first, make sure that it is ok. Then check usb port,move the usb cable to other port. Then check if usb cable and port are ok, try to connect other printer or device by using that usb cable and port. If works well means the usb port on printer got a problem. But if still not work the problem could be on usb cable or usb port on computer. If you are sure that both the printer and computer are ok, try to reinstall the printer driver. Good luck!.
By "not printing" i'm assuming you mean from the computer. Look at the back of the printer where the network cable plugs into the formatter. You should see a green light. If you don't try a different cable. No light means that the printer isn't talking to the computer. You could have a bad network card or connection. If you are using a USB cable, make sure it is seated correctly.
First of all, check your cartridges, if you have recently installed one, then please try with the old cartridge or if you got a new cartridge, please use that one. If the problem still persists, please uninstall the printer's driver/software from the system, restart your computer (don't forget to disconnect the usb cable from your computer). Again reinstall the software, and reconnect the usb cable when you are asked to do so (don't connect it unless you are asked). Now once again restart your computer before you do anything with your printer and try a test print/scan/copy.
If again the above methods never help, please switch off the printer, unplug the usb cable and disconnect power chord, leave it for at least 4-5 minutes and again restart it.
You last suspect is the print head.
Thanks for using FixYa.
Then your USB cable is bad or the USB port is not installed properly or the port is bad (or very slightly possible the printer is bad). Narrow it down by trying a different cable, a different port, test the usb port with another device, try the printer on another computer.
With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.
To fix a fouled install: (1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs (2) Shutdown the computer (3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port (4) Restart the computer (5) Run the Driver Installation software (6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer (7) When the software asks for the printer connect it and continue

It's very simple to connect a printer, and ever simpler to read the part of the manual that tells you how.
Perhaps you should get a friend to help you. If I say "Power Cord" and
"USB Cable" will you know the difference? If not, I probably couldn't
explain it to you through type.
If you think you could tell them apart, then do this:
1. Make sure you have a USB cable. Most printers don't come with a
cable to connect to a computer. If yours did, you'll have two cables in
the box. The USB and the Power cables.
If you don't have a USB cable, you'll have to go buy one.
2. Put the CD into your CD ROM drive, follow the instructions. When the
computer tells you to, plug your USB cable into the back of the printer
and the computer. Plug the power into the printer. Turn the printer ON.
The computer should detect the printer. Follow the instructions on the computer screen.
