Question about Lexmark X73 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Cannot print unless I turn off computer and then reboot.

I have a Lexmark X73 all in one colour printer. The only way to get it to print is to set up the print job and then turn off the computer. When I turn the computer back on, all jobs in the print queue then print. However I cannot get this printer to print without turning off computer and rebooting.

    Thanks for reply. Unable to do this however as this is a printer that was given to me and I do not have an installation CD. All drivers and operating manual have had to be downloaded from Lexmark website.

I'm not a big fan of Lexmark in general in part due to their software and drivers. For me this type of behavior from their printers/software became common about a year ago, the fix being to use the more generic Windows supplied printer drivers. I would suggest that you uninstall all software the printer installed and remove all of the printers print queue(s)including any associated with the fax function. Unplug the printer USB cable from the computer, reboot your PC and reinstall the printer from scratch using your original installatin CD.

    The drivers from the web site will do just as well. Here is the link to the appropriate driver download page. You just need to select you operating system and download the approximately 20MB file.

Your printer's rollers sound like they are worn along the paper path. I suggest you taking your printer in to have a maintenance cleaning or have the rollers replaced. This will resolve your issues.

Lexmark X73 Printing Problem


When you say that your all-in-one system will copy, but will not print from the computer, this tells me that there could be a connection problem between the printer and the computer. This is more then likely a driver problem. you will need to go to lexmark and download the latest drivers for your operating system.
But this could also be a broken or loose cable.

is there's nothing from lexmark, who makes the drivers, then there's nothing to it. you could set up a print server, and maybe that will do it.
