Question about Lexmark Office Equipment & Supplies

2 Answers

Hi, I am a new Mac use and have been so impressed with every thing so far. When I've needed to update, connect, surf, download etc all have been done quickly and effeciently with NO fuss. How ever I decided to buy a new wireless printer a Lexmark X9575 Pro series. When I install the printer drivers from the either the cd supplied with the printer or from the Lexmark website it goes through and says software installed ok. But when you try and and find the printer to add to the list there is no printer listed. I have tried powering down printer and restarting Macbook and tried updating list, uninstalled software and reinstalled sveral times, tried picking the printer driver several different ways and again all installs ok but still no sign of my lovely new printer. Worst thing is to check the printer works I installed the MS s/w on and XP laptop and on Pc running that nasty Vista rubbish and they installed and found the printer no problems. Help is there any thing I'm not doing, missing a sequence, an application problem etc. It's probably due to my greeness as Mac user so any suggestions much appreciated. Thanks

In the top corner of the mac screen you will see the apple logo, click on this then go to system properties (i think i do not have a mac here i am going by memory) in there you will find the printers section just like on a windows based system.

hope this helps

You do have a wireless home network? Do you have encryption on that network, if so you have to give the printer the SSID, define your encrytion type (i.e. WEP 64/128, WAP, WAP2) and provide the key code, although I think Mac's call it a password.

How can error 98.01.01 be solved


When exactly did you get the error message 98.01.01? Was it while you was trying to do a firmware update? I found a forum support page regarding this error but so far it remains unresolved on many websites. I checked all of the LaserJet's error codes and, like in the forum link, it appears this is related to a bad firmware update or faulty connection during a firmware. I have heard of people just repeatedly trying the firmware update until it goes through. In fact, there is a firmware update for this printer.

To get to the firmware update, go towww.hp.com/supportand type in your product name under Software and Download and press enter. Next, you will have to select which printer you have (m551n, m551dn, or m551xh). Once you select that, it will take you to a Business Support Page and the firmware updates are located on the left hand side under Setup, Install, and Configure and then in the middle of the page you will see "Firmware Download and Install." I will need to know a bit more information before I can help you with any of those steps, however.
First of all, how is the printer connected to the computer? What is the Operating System and System Type of the computer (Windows 7 64 bit, Windows XP, Mac Version X.X, etc)? Are you able to print or do anything else with this printer? Answer those questions if you need any more help.16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I have a new MacBook Pro and cannot get my Brother printer to work with it. The computer recognizes the printer but does not print.


Hi,
Did you install the Mac driver for MFC? The MFC comes with driver for windows and Mac. Place the Mac Driver disk to DVD slot and run the installation for your MFC printer. Follow the instruction to complete the installation.
When you try to print something, make sure the MFC printer is selected.
If you've done all of this and still not able to print, please turn off your MFC, wait 15 seconds and turn on again to see problem solve or not.
Hope this will help. Thanks for reading.

How can I scan to the Mac


It will depend on a few things:

The type of printer/scanner you have (HP, Canon, Lexmark, etc) and the operating system installed on the Mac.

You can find the operating system number by clicking on the Apple Menu (top left corner of the screen) and pressing "About This Mac". In the center of this window it will say "version 10.5.8 or 10.6.2 or 10.something)".

If it's 10.5.8 - that means you are running Leopard, and you may have to download updated printer drivers from the maker of your printer.

If it's 10.6 - update to 10.6.2 (apple menu > software update).

If it's 10.6.2 - restart the computer and disconnect the scanner. Restart it and connect it. Snow Leopard should discover the correct drivers automatically.

After that, all scanning is done in the Image Capture.app (located within Applications > Utilities.

Happy scanning!

CX4800 ''communication error'' with MAC OS X


I had the same problem. I think it's about how much power the printer draws from the usb port. I would suggest the following:
Plug the printer directly into the back of your mac, not into the keyboard or front ports. These ports have the most power and so should give you a trouble free connection.
If this doesn't work (and this is what I ended up having to do). Get as short a usb cable as you can to link between the mac and the printer. I found longer leads constantly caused problems with this printer wherever I plugged it in. This fixed it for me. It means they have to live very closely together but at least I don't want to throw the printer out of the window anymore!
I'm not sure who the fault lies with, Apple for providing underpowered ports or Epson for demanding too much power from the usb (it's not like the the thing needs the mac to power it up!). Probably a bit of both.

Need printer disc/driver?


With great difficulty. The easiest thing to do would be to go to the brother website and download the entire package from there (broadband would be helpful). You need to go to www.brother.com and then select software download. It will then ask which region you are in (Australia, U.S etc). Then your model which is MFC-210 and finally your operating system (Windows Vista, Mac OS 10 etc) if you then go to all downloads you will see the full software package for download. These are between 50 and 200MB in size so you may have to wait a while depending on your internet connection speed. If you don't require all the software and just need the printer driver itself to allow you to print to the machine then you can just download driver only.

Good Luck.
Please rate my advice, good or bad.
