Please check the connection between your printer and computer, check cables if properly connected. Check if printer is showing on printer and faxes and make sure is set as the default printer. You may also download and install the correct print on your computer. For set up instructions please refer to the user manual which is available from support. lexmark.com website.
For further assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support.
Wireless printing happens in conjunction with your wireless router. You need the access information for that. Then go to Lexmark website and download and install the software for that printer, and follow the directions exactly. Each computer will need software installed in order to connect.
If you have installed something since yesterday you might want to use system restore. the program might be causing the flaw. If not dont worry. You will need to uninstall the printer from your printer page and reinstall it. depending if it is a networked printer or a usb connected. If networked all you have to do is follow the install wizard. but if it is a usb you will have to go to the company's website and download a printer driver. after that it should work. dont forget to restart your computer. sometimes that can help too.
The printer is probably not getting the same IP address every time. Set a static IP address outside of the range being used for DHCP addressing. If the entire range is set for DHCP, you will need to adjust that range so the printer's IP is no longer in it.
-Check the printer status lights, or the status
LCD screen. If there's a flashing light, or if the status screen shows
an error, then it's your first clue to a problem. Most printer manuals
have a diagnosis process for alerts.
-common problems are related to toner or toner
cartridges. If the problem is toner-related, check to see if the toner
cartridge is empty or low. The printer warning should indicate this.
Swap it for a new one and the unit should work.
-check to be sure that it is connected to your
computer. Personal printers connect via either a parallel or USB
(universal serial bus) connector to the back of the printer. Follow the
cable from the back of the printer to the back of the computer to make
sure the connection is good.
-When a printer acts up and there is no hardware
problem, the solution is often driver-related. A printer driver is a
piece of software that allows a computer to "talk" to a printer. It's a
kind of translator. Occasionally, if a printer has worked previously,
but suddenly doesn’t work with a newly installed program, there could
be driver problems. To remedy this, download a driver from the printer
maker's website, remove the old driver, and install the new driver.
Drivers are normally available under the "support" area of a website.
Print the Menu Setting out on printer and menu setting out on pc. Match sure emulation matcheds on both sides. If using serial make sure serial settings match on both sides. If parallel, check the bois on the PC, change parallel port type to EPP instead of ECP or SPP.
