A couple of questions: Are you using an accout that has install rights? (ie. Administrator level account ) Are you seeing the UAC (user account control) prompts if you are are you clicking allow this software to run? Can you install other software? If these are true then

at this point try removing all printer software, then restart computer. Now turn on printer connect usb cable to printer then plug into a usb port on the computer, Do you get a "Found New Hardware" popup window? If so remove the cable from the computer and restart the computer. Now insert the cd that came with printer and follow the instructions for the software installation. If you don't see a "Found New Hardware"prompt then try a new usb cable, or try leaving the printer connected and turning the printer off for about a minute then back on. If this doesn't help try leaving it connected and re booting your machine also try different usb ports on your machine. If none of this helps you may have account permission issues or just bad hardware.
I would really need more info about your machine configuration if these tips don't help

I need to connect my phone line to my printer to enable me to send faxes, how do I do this.


Refer to the printer's User's Guide on how to connect your Lexmark X5470 to your telephone line for faxing. If the printer software is already installed on your computer, you can access the printer's User's Guide by going to the Start menu -> Programs -> Lexmark 5400 Series -> User's Guide (applicable to Windows OS). If not, you can download it from the Lexmark website for free using this link: Lexmark 5400 Series All-In-One User's Guide. Scroll to page 12 for the fax setup instructions. Also, check page 71for faxing instructions (sending, receiving, etc.). Hope this helps.
If you need additional assistance, please contact Lexmark technical support. Thanks.

Lexmark 5400 all in one


It is observed in branded printer not only lexmark also with HP printers yoou get this same problem.
It is always recomended to use genuine cartridges rather than refilled or any other brand ink cartridges.
As for HP cartridges they are all made under six sigma process where it is very rare you get a ink cartridge issue.
thats why HP Gives 18 months of replacement warranty on its cartridges
The same applies to Lexmark printers aswell
Make a habit of usig Genuine cartridges which will give value for your money.
