Timeout settings for Lexmark Z11 color jetprinter

Printer does not print, blank sheet comes out. Error message received: "There was an error writing to LPT1. A printer timeout error occurred. To increase timeout settings for your printer, open the printers folder. Click the icon for your printer. Click the file menu and then click properties. To continue printing, click retry Windows will automatically retry after 5 seconds."

I have no idea what the timeout setting is supposed to be. There is no information in the user's guide for that. Also, the retry window does not come on when I click properties.

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

  4. Depending on which cartridges you are using and which printer model you have, select Install Color Cartridge or Install Black Cartridge or Install Photo Cartridge.

Lexmark z11 Vista Compatible?


Looks like I've cracked it [Touches wooden desk]. Need a USB to IEEE 1284 36-pin Parallel Printer Cable, like the one I received today (ordered yesterday from www.cables2u.co.uk). First, connect it to Z11. Turn on Z11 and boot up Vista PC/laptop. (I run Vista Business on my laptop.) Connect cable to computer. Message appears "Installing device driver software". Click it for status. 'Found New Hardware' box appears. Click 'Locate and install driver software'. A message appears "Error loading LXADSUI.DLL. Specified module could not be found". Click 'OK'. Message appears saying driver software installed successfully. ["Yeah, right ..."] (Have faith, folks!) Now, click Start, then Control Panel and double-click Printers. Right click on Z11 and click on Set As Default Printer. Right click on Z11 again and click on Properties. Check on Ports tab that Port USB is ticked for Z11. On Cartridge Maintenance tab, check right cartridge is showing. If not, click 'Install/Change Cartridge' and follow instructions. Then 'Clean Print Nozzles' and 'Align Cartridges'. Check settings on the other tabs in Properties look OK and try printing a test page! It looks good to me!

Your printer thinks you are using a color cartridge. If have the lexmark printer manager software, go to "install new cartirdge" and tell it that you are using a black cartridge. Otherwise, install a printer driver, reinstall the printer, and set it up again.

I have a Lexmark Z11 that sat unopened in the box for several years until it was given to me as an emergency printer. The black ink cartridge had been pilfered by the original owner ( he got several of the se printers on clearance for $15 each). I bought a remanufactures high capacity cartridge. It workef fine for the three days of printing I did last week (about 25-30 pages of resumes and reference letters). When I went to use it a week later, it goes through the motions of printing but no ink is put on the page. I ran the clean cartridge several times but still no ink. I tried the new still-in-the-box color cartridge and did get color on the page in the alignment trial, but it was faded and full of white lines. I figured the cartridge was just old. It could be the ink leaked out of the remanufactured cartridge, but when I gently blew on the air hole I got a small splat of ink. (I used to be a sales rep for Canon printers a dozen years ago and we were told to do that to see if the cartridge still had ink.) I deleted and reinstalled the printer, unplugged and replugged cable and power cord twice. The printer receives the command and goes through the motion of printing, but as I said, no ink is put on the page. I have come to the conclusion the perhaps the remanufactured cartridge is at fault and I should take it back for an exchange, Can I get your take on it - is it the cartridge or the printer? Thanks! -Kathleen Brockway
