Lexmark 6500 Wireless, stopped printing

Lexmark 6500 wireless, purchased Jan-Feb, installed on desktop w Vista. Worked beautifully. Last night it stopped obeying print command. Either did nothing at print command or said 'Printing Started, Printing Finished', but no printing occurred. Uninstalled X 3, no improvement. Went to my laptop with Lexmark 6500 wireless installed w Vista, picked a document, print command, printed beautifully.

    I have same problem - printer randomely goes awal and wont work, tried re-installing, turning on and off etc etc, but still nothing. Occasionally it will decide to work again, but is so intermittant it truly affects my flow of work. Can someone help with this?

    I also can't print to my Lexmark 6500. It also says printing started, then finished, but it never even sends it into the print que. I think this may have started with the last Vista update.

SOURCE: Cannot print with wirelessly networked printer

hi,

if printing from 2 other computer works fine, will i think its not an issue of IP address which changes somehow. but anyways, try to check if you still have other printer drivers under "PRINTERS" (see control panel). it should say HP Photosmart c6100 series. If you also have there a printer icon that says HP Photosmart c6100 series Copy1, try using it (right click on that icon and choose Set as Default Printer). If you only have HP Photosmart c6100 series under PRINTERS, try to right click, then choose properties. When Properties box is open, click on PORTS tab. then click on configure ports below. Try to type in the IP address of the printer under "Printer Name or Host name or IP address". make sure that you already printed network configuration page to get the exact ip address of the printer, Dont know how to print? do this.

PRINTING NETWORK CONFIGURATION PAGE
1. press setup, then scroll down and look for Network.
2. press okay on network, it will give you the first option "VIew network settings".
3. press okay on it, and it will give you the first option "Print network configuration page."
4. choose that and press okay. it will print the network config page. from this document, you will be able to see the IP address of the printer.

Please let me know if the issue is still not resolve so that i can go ahead and give you another possible solution.

Thank you so much.

SOURCE: Cannot print from laptop to printer using wireless print server

This is probably the Software Firewall on your laptop

you should probably tell your firewall software that you have an internal network (Laptop-desktop-printer) you should add the IP range of the wireless network as a trusted network.

I have HP Officejet 6500 connected via USB to office desktop. I also need print from vista laptops on the same wireless network as the desktop. How do you do it ?


Hi, I just completed this same query this week.

to set up my remote network i followed promts from windows and then had to run my windows xp startup disc on my vista laptop.

After that was complete i had to install the hp printer setup cd onto my vista laptop and connect the hp printer to my router using the ethernet cable. I followed the prompts on the vista as the cd continued to install. then at the end of it all it showed i had correctly installed the printer via wireless and asked me to do a practice print which i did and all seems fine.

I can now print from my vista laptop and my windows xp desktop. I hope this helps

Wireless print server


If your WEP encryption key is turned on, it will not work. To correct this, go into Internet Explorer and type in the IP address of the printer. Type in the WEP key in the correct place and save the information to the print server, then restart the search program.

There is a detailed thread I posted on this last July on Fixa. You should be able to find it by searching under the Linksys print server by the model number.

Lexmark 6500 wireless printer does not print even though it is detected in the wireless network


-check your firewall, it might be blocking your printer or your network
-check also if the correct port is detected, just go to your printer and faxes and right click on your lexmark printer and click on properties, then under ports tab check your lexmark network port.

Lexmark X1150 only prints first page


I have an x4550, running windows vista basic on an hp dv6000t notebook. i had the same problem. i contacted online lexmark tech and here's the solution that worked for me, thanks to help from lexmark (transcript of chat):

Please follow the steps given below to change the spool data format:
1. Click on "Start," "Control Panel," "Hardware and Sound" and "Printers."
2. Then, right click on the Lexmark printer icon and left click "Properties."
3. Either on the "Advanced" tab or the "General" tab for some models, there is a "Print Processor" button, left click it.
4. This is the spool format setting. It should be set to the default to "LEMF." Change it to "Lexmark." Under "Default datatype," select "NT EMF 1.008."
5. Click "OK" and exit back out to your desktop.
6. Please try printing again.
