Lexmark z33 won't print

I have downloaded a new driver.
I think the port is correct.
I've gone through the troubleshooting guide and still can't print.

Can anyone help?

    I discovered that my husband just plugged the printer in without installing the disc.

    I'm so sorry to have taken up your time.
    It has been installed but I'm still having trouble. I can print a test page etc but not a text page that I want to print.
    Dealing with the drivers is time consuming and I want to toss it out the window and sit on my Mac which accepts pretty much everything and ignore his PC.
    I need to print this document so I will persevere.

    "pingin download" means nothing to me.
    Please be more specific.

    I reinstalled the printer using the original installation disc, but it still will not print.

    What operating system are you using?

    Did you install the correct Drivers?

    Are the lights on or blinking? (is it plugged in to the power)

    Have you tried to print a test page?

    Does your PC give an error when you try to print?

    This machine connects USB, that should be a USB Virtual Port, if your looking at your ports list in the printer driver properties!

    Open the Safely remove hardware window (little green arrow that should be by the clock)

    See if the printer is listed there

    Disconnect the USB cable, look at the USB connected device window again, see if it is listed or not.

    Reconnect the USB cable and look at the USB Connected devices again to see if it is there.

    Change the USB port which the cable is plugged into, or Plug it into another USB port?

    If your using windows you can look at the device manager see if it is listed there.

If you can print a test page, your computer is and printer is working, and communicating.
Go to the control panel of the PC open "Printers and Faxes"
set the printer as the Default..
or when you try to print from a program and the window pops up. make sure you are selecting the correct printer..
Good luck

Z33 does not print,comes upscript error line 1829

I assume you are running Windows 9 and you have not downloaded the Win 7 drivers from the Lexmark site. This is a driver compatibility issue with Vista drivers on Windows 7. Go to

and read the instructions for downloading and updating the drivers for your Z23.

Lexmark Z33 printer hooked up to older 2000 Milinium Microsoft. Can't get any other printer to download into old system. Lexmark, great printer has been installed for years. My accounting is stuck in this...

If you go to this link (above) these drivers are for Windows 2000 which is actually a different operating system than Windows Millennium. And too I can not locate drivers for Windows ME. If you need them perhaps you can locate the original installation cd that came with the printer. I am hoping your computer is the 2000 because that has the NTFS (new technology file system) as the other know as FAT32... Windows2000-2003server-WinXP are all NTFS.

Remove the old print driver through Add and Remove Programs, in the control panel. Disconnect your printer from your computer until your are instructed to connect. Install the new software you download and run the program setting it up as per instructions. Connect printer,
You also may want to open the tools in the printer and run the printer alignment.
Hope this does it for you, Please leave rating
thank you kindly

Are you connecting this by sharing it from a computer connected to the printer thru a local connection? If so, be sure it has the driver loaded for the operating system you are using on the other computer.

You can download the driver here, directly from Lexmark:

Select Windows XP from the list, and download.

Be sure to UNPLUG the printer from the PC before installing. ONLY plug it in once the on-screen instructions tell you to do so.

Using window XP OS with Lexmark Z 33

Is the file data getting through to the printer. Check settings/printer/ right click OPEN. You should see file ready to be printed. Does the paper feed work? Have you downloaded the correct drivers?
Check connections to the printer and PC. Does on off switch on top of printer work correctly.
