I have a Lexmark X8300. All was ok till recently. I can print out anything from the computer but can't use the copy feature. Also, all of the lights stay on - the copy light, fax light, scan light,...


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print again.


You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/eO4Y77. Select your operating system, download and execute the file.


If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

I tried to fax from my computer using the x7170, but it only prints. I can fax from the machine. Is there another software I need, or driver? Thanks, Ken


Hello. Make sure that the fax software is already installed in the computer. There should be a fax object in Printers and Faxes/Printer/Printers and Devices(for Windows) or in Print and Fax(for Macintosh). If there is, when you send a fax from the computer, make sure to use the correct print object which is for the fax. If driver is not installed, reinstall the software.

I have attached the HP 4255 officejet with my computer and want to send the file directly from my computer via fax. how i can send directly without geting print . mubashir@ellahifabrics.com


Well, you'll need a modem to send a fax. Either that, or an online faxing service. Your printer / scanner is only intended to either print files, or scan hard copies into files that can then be printed (or faxed). The printer itself does not fax.

Might I suggest the following online fax service, free of charge:

There are plenty of others.

Will not print


Try unplugging the USB cable from the back of the computer, not from the back off the printer. Also, try deleting the printer from/at the printer/fax page and restarting your computer so it will reinstall. In either case, when checking the printer/fax folder, make sure there is nothing pending printing. If there is, click on delete all pending printing jobs. If there is a print job pending and you can not cancell/delete this job, then you must delete the printer icon and restart your computer. Aloha!

Recieving fax no printout, all other printing processes ok


When you say all other printing processes are ok, I am assuming you can make copies and print from the computer. If so...then are the blank faxes coming from several different fax machines or are they coming from one particular fax machine. If one particular fax machine, then the problem is probably on their end. I need to go backwards a second....when you receive a fax does the machine spit out a blank page or no paper is fed at all..it just receives the fax? Is the machine programmed to just receive faxes to memory to be printed out later? It doesn't make sense for it to print or copy but not to print a fax. If problem persist try a different fax modem.
