Question about Lexmark Office Equipment & Supplies
This sounds like more of a communications problem than it does a "time out" problem. I am assuming that the printer is connected to the computer via a parallel cable. If that is the case, try unplugging the cable at both ends, the reattaching it. If that does not change anything, try replacing the cable.
If that does not solve the problem, try replacing the parallel cable with a USB cable and then follow the directions below.
If by some outside chance you have the printer connected to the computer via USB cable you can do one of two things. Replace the USB cable with a parallel cable or change the printer's port settings to use the USB cable. - If you do have the printer connected via USB cable you might be able to rerun the installation software that came with the printer and it may automatically pick up on the USB set up. If not, go to Contro Panel\Printers and Faxes\ - Right click on your printer and open properties. Under properties, click on the Ports tab. Since the error message stated "error writing to LPT1, check to insure that the LPT1 block is checked. If it is, and you are using a USB cable, scroll down until you see two blocks - "USB001 Virtual printer port for USB" and "DOT4_001". Check the box beside "DOT4_001" then click on Apply and close the window. The try printing again.
Hope that helps - Graye
