Apparently, the drivers for your printer is bundled in with the MAC OS CD. There are no MAC drivers on the Lexmark for your model. And the 4200 series should work.
Follow the instructions below.

MacBook Pro won't print to my Epson Stylus Photo 300 - it used to


Hi,
The flashing green light normally means that the computer is sending information to the printer.
If the printer is receiving information, but is not printing, the cartridges may need replacing, or the printer may be faulty.
Do you have a friend with a printer? Can you try printing to their printer just to check your computer is ok?

How do I get my laptop to to print on a Lexmark printer without the software?


Your printer will not print without the correct drivers installed in your computer. To locate and download your drivers, you can visit the Lexmark website.

Just enter the information requested and the website will direct you to the correct drivers.

Also, you'll need to know your printer's model number to obtain the drivers you need.

Cant get Z23 to work on Macbook


Are you referring to a Lexmark Z23 printer? If so, have you tried the driver here?:


http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=content&id=DR11146&actp=search&viewlocale=en_US&userlocale=EN_US+&segment=DOWNLOAD&productCode=Z23_COLOR_JETPRINTER&searchid=1272771163650

This is the official Lexmark driver from Lexmark. It only lists OS 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3, but you can try it to see if it works. If it doesn't, you can probably get a free open-source driver. Let me know if Lexmark's driver doesn't work, and I'll explain how to use the alternate driver.

If you've printed to the Z23 before, and has stopped working, have you replaced the ink cartridges? Your printer manual explains how to do it, but usually it involves opening the printer and carefully disconnecting the cartridges from the printer. *Don't force anything or you may damage the printer.* If you aren't sure how to get them out, I can help. Just post a comment here. (The link should be at the top, right side of this page.

Good luck! Let us know if this fixed your problem.

* If you find this information helpful, please rate my solutions and recommend me. Thanks! *
