Question about Lexmark X75 All-In-One InkJet Printer

3 Answers

Mac OS X 1.4.8 does not seem to allow X75

The case on the PowerPC broke, and I bought a new MacBook Pro. It's nice. I connected the new and the old by a firewire cable and was automatically able to make a "brain transplant". So, I was back on the air in less than an hour without loss of filles or software. However, printing gave trouble and a message said to up-date the driver. Well, after multiple installs and after multiple e-mails with LexMark support -- and after a one-hour call from India talking with support staff (!) -- the answer seems to be that Apple no longer supports this model. Grrrrrrr. The printer set-up utility lists many LexMark models but not X74-75. The guy from India finally said, "Please contact Apple." (He also said the model is "very old".) I fear that the problem has no solution with the new OS and I will have to buy a new printer. Has anyone else found a cure? This has wasted far too much time.

Re: Mac OS X 1.4.8 does not seem to allow X75

The Lexmark site in the US seems to have removed the X74/75 driver for OS X.  However, you can find it on the Lexmark French site.  The driver is CJMX75L1.hqx  v.
All of the functions work on my Lexmark X74 using that driver with OS 10.5 (Leopard) on my iMac G5.  Note:  some users have reported problems expanding the driver file unless it is downloaded using Safari.

Re: Mac OS X 1.4.8 does not seem to allow X75

I had a similar problem with my X75 and Tiger (10.4.10), except that I could print and use the All in One Center, the part where you can copy and scan, I could also print, but the cartridges where not aligned so I tried running the Utility center and discovered that it would not respond in Tiger. I tried uninstalling and re-installing, everything, to no avail.

Yesterday, I upgraded to Leopard, thinking that it could only get better, in fact, it got a whole lot better, suddenly my Utility center worked like a charm. I could not believe it, but I aligned cartridges right away and now I can print away.

My printer wont turn on

Dear Sir,

If your computer won't turn on, try each of these steps:
  1. Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a working wall outlet, and that it's properly connected to the power adapter. (To check if the wall socket is working, plug in a lamp or other electrical device.)
  2. Make sure that the power adapter is properly connected to the power port on the back of the computer.
  3. Disconnect all accessories that are plugged into the computer, such as a printer, hub, or iPod.
  4. Reset the computer's PMU, SMC, or PRAM. Refer to the instructions for your model:
  5. Try plugging a different power cord into the computer (if you have a working one available). If the computer starts up, replace the old power cord.
  6. If the computer uses a power adapter, try connecting a different power adapter to the computer (if you have a working one available). If the computer starts up, replace the old power adapter. (Computers that use a power adapter include MacBook, MacBook Pro, iBooks, PowerBooks, Power Mac G4 Cube, and Mac mini.)
  7. If you tried all of the steps above and the computer still won't turn on, contact Apple technical support (1-800-APL-CARE in the U.S.) or take your computer to the nearest Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP) for diagnosis. If you plan to visit an Apple Retail store, make a reservation at the Genius Bar using

I have been given a lexmark x75, with no instructions how do i install this

It would be better if you install the software/driver first in your computer. The software also shows you the instructions on how to setup the printer itself. Here are the drivers available for download in the Lexmark website. Just click on the driver compatible with your computer's operating system.
- Lexmark X75 AIO Printer driver for Mac OS X, Mac OS X 10.1, Mac OS X 10.1.5, Mac OS X 10.2, Mac OS X 10.2.1, Mac OS X 10.2.8, Mac OS X 10.3.x, and Mac OS X 10.4.x.
- Custom Driver for Microsoft Windows 2000
- Driver for Microsoft Windows XP
These are the only available drivers. That means the printer is not compatible with Mac 10.5, Mac 10.6, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
For additional information, here's the Setup Sheet (Lexmark X74, X75) and the User's Guide (Lexmark X74, X75) . Hope this helps.

ANy solution to the lack of fuji drivers for new macs and OS?

4500N can't be recognize with an Intel Mac, because the Appletalk doesn't work. My solution to print: I've got a powerPC as an interface between Imac intel and fuji network adapter. The pictro driver is installed on both machines. On The Intel, The Appletalk is connected on Airport. On the PowerPc, The Appletalk is connected on Ethernet. Ethernet cable between powerPC and pictro network adapter. SCSI2 cable between PNA and the 4500. Of course, auto calibrating + eye-one color calibrating. WELL!! it works.

that's on your Mac end, not the printer. I'm assuming you have the correct drivers for the OS you're using? in case that's not the situation.
