My printer won't print. my computer is hooked up to it, and it doesn't give any error messages. it just doesn't do anything.


Go to Control Panel/Printers. Right click on your printer's name, and hit Print Test Page. If printer prints a page out, then the problem is likely with the software you're using to print - make sure you have selected the right printer in the dropdown. If the printer's name doesn't show in the Printers folder of Control Panel, the driver for it has not been installed. Do so and try again.

My Lexmark printer is showing 122.03 service fusher error what can i do


This error normally requires a service call. However, certain rare occurrences, such as a a power fluctuation or a stray static discharge in the vicinity of the printer, can cause a false 122.03 error message to appear. In these cases, the error is only temporary and can be easily resolved without service. Follow the steps in the table to test this.
Step Action 1
Power the printer off, wait ten seconds, and then power the printer back on.
Did the error message return?
Yes: Continue to step 2.
No: Print a test page. If the page prints, the printer is functioning correctly. 2
If possible, connect the printer's power cord directly into a grounded wall outlet. In rare instances, a surge protector or uninterruptible power supply (UPS) can generate false error messages.
Did the error message return?
Yes: Continue to Contacting Lexmark below.
No: Print a test page. If the page prints, the printer is functioning correctly.

It could be a cartridge, hardware or a software problem. Try to print a hardware test page on the printer. Please follow the steps in this article from the Lexmark website How to Perform the Hardware Test on the Lexmark Z705 Photo Jetprinter. This is a good way to start the troubleshooting. Keep me updated. Thanks.

Have you talked with Lexmark Technical Support? I suspect you may have to escalate this beyond level one. Vista on Mac is likely to have issues that differ from other Vista environments.

Hi gig14789,
Never do a re-install unless you run the un-install software or remove the program from within add/remove programs in control panel. You're software is all messed up now. Lets try this.
Turn off you're printer (press the on/off button). Click the start button & slide up to & click on control panel. Once opened. Double left click add/remove icon & it will open. Find Lexmark & un-install the software by clicking on remove. Un-install/remove anything having t do with the Lexmark printer. When finished close all opened windows. Restart you're system. When windows has finished loading I need you to creat a folder on you're desktop. Name it (Lexmark Z705). Click on the link below.

http://search.lexmark.com/printer/US/en/15L0000
Save this link above to you're favorites. (You may need to come here again).

Scroll down the page till you see, Lexmark Z705 - Drivers and Downloads. Click on you're operating system.
Click download now. Choose to save the file. Save the file into the folder you created (Lexmark Z705). Once down loaded open the (Lexmark Z705) folder. Double left click the .exe file.
Follow the instruction & on screen prompts. The software will tell you when to power on you're printer.
If this fails to install correctly please post back in this windows & list any error messages you might receive. List you're operating system too.

Good Luck!

Mike
