Question about Lexmark Z617 InkJet Photo Printer

3 Answers

Lexmark Z617 printing blank pages.

Hi, I've just bought a second hand printer and installed drivers i downloaded direct from lexmark for Vista but the printer is printing blank pages.
The woman told me it's new ink cartridges as she had them spare so put them in to save me the hassle, the printer detects the ink levels as full though i specified that they are not new and used before.

Any ideas on if it's a hardware or software problem? Any help will be greatfully received!!

Thanks,
Eve

Run this patch as an administrator if you are using vista

ftp://ftp.lexmark.com/driver/inkjet_drivers/UserDevMode/

-one more thing.. are you using Vista 32 bit? or 64? if you are using 64 bit vista, then you must install the windows Vista X64 for your printer.

Clean heads, clean heads, clean heads, etc. Then do the test print to see if the heads are open. I had similar problem with an Epson, had to clean the heads often, finally got to where the heads wouldn't clean so threw it away and bought another one (HP this time, the heads are included in the ink carts, haven't had to clean the heads at all.)

Lexmark 1290 on Vista Printing Blank Pages


Fond this on the Lexmark Website. Hope it helps.

Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· 1) Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· 2) Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· 3) Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· 4) While leaving the USB unconnected, Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.

Hi,

Go to http://support.lexmark.com/perl/support/support.cgi enter your region and country.

Then enter lexmark z617 as the search term. It will take you to a page that will allow you to download the driver.

You can also do a search in google for "lexmark z617 drivers" This give many sources, but you are better off going to the Lexmark site.

Cannot install lexmark z617 printer have lost disc


Hey there spud1,

Click Here for the Lexmark Drivers and Downloads page.

Type the model in to the left search box (z617). A drop down menu will appear. Click on z617 (I didn't write it). Then Click on Select.

Select your Operating System and follow the prompts.

Be advised, some older Lexmark printers are not supported in newer operating systems (Don't shoot the messenger). Other than that, this will get you going.

Your driver / software can be downloaded here, directly from Lexmark.

http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?lxkprod=Lexmark+Z617

Choose your operating system 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.
