Question about Lexmark International Z615; 4800x1200;W/CABLE Printer

1 Answer

My computer recognises the printer is there, but nothing prints

I have a lexmark z601 and downloaded the driver for it to my laptop, and it was working fine. then i turned it on one time and the light just flashed on and off, whereas normally the light stays on all the time. if i send anything to print, it just does nothing instead. when i go on lexmark solution centre, it recognises the printer is there, but just says 'trouble communicating', and when i take the lead out of the USB, it switches to 'printer offline'. iv tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver, restarting my laptop, removing the wires from the back of the printer and putting it back, and also cheking the ink cartridges. i really dont know what else to do to sort it out...

With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

To fix a fouled install :
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the sofware asks for the printer connect it and continue

I have a pc with a Windows 7 home premium and i have too (formerly) a LexmarkZ 601. I need drivers for my Lexmark. Thanks for help.


Please check if your Windows 7 is running on 32-bit or 64-bit operating system. Go to Start menu -> right-click on Computer -> Properties. Take note of the System Type.
Now, there's Z601 driver specific for Windows 7, however, the vista drivers work. Download the compatible driver for your operating system using the links below:
- Lexmark Z601 Driver for Vista 32-bit / Win 7 32-bit - Lexmark Z601 Driver for Vista 64-bit / Win 7 64-bit
Hope this helps. Thanks.

I recommend you use the driver available for download in the Lexmark website. There is no Windows 7 64-bit OS driver, however, the Vista 64-bit OS driver is compatible with it. Lexmark Z600 series (Z601, Z602, Z603, Z604 and Z605) uses the same driver. Here's the link to download the software. http://bit.ly/b8juwC. Download and install the software. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

Need to download driver for lexmark z600 printer


Z600 is the series, the printer will be something like Z601, Z605 etc.

If you do not know the model, download Z601.

You need to follow instructions below, as direct link to printer page is not available.


If you do not have the disk you must download the software from Internet, follow instructions below,

Click here:Official Lexmark Drivers and Software

A web page will open, follow instructions, select model, select operative system etc., and click on download .
Chose to download the file in my documents when asked.
After downloading, find the file,double click on the file ,then if you get in troubles, follow the instructions below to reset and reinstall drivers:

  • Unplug printer USB.
  • Go to control panel >> installed printers in Windows and remove (delete ) any installed printer from printer list.
  • Download driver from website, or use the disk and run the install file.
  • Follow driver installation wizard.
  • Plug back printer when prompted from installation wizard.
Note:some printer does not work on Vista, if you do not find any driver download for Vista on your model page, that means your model is not Vista compatible.

I want to install my printer Lexmark Z600, but my driver software could no longer open or install; I need to download another one. Engrtomchil


Here's the link for the z601 Printer, you can try that, if your not sure on the model (or if indeed it is a z600, then the z601 may work with it, no harm in trying).
Just select your O/S from the list and it will bring up the driver download page.
Or you can use the Search Facility on their site to try the other zXXX Model Drivers if you have no luck with that one.

Network Printing Issues


have one too, this happened with an x73 when i upgraded from win98 to winXP, It happened with the X6150 when i upgraded to vista. to correct this problem, Get an HP printer and be done with it. I like lexmark because the ink costs less, but if they do not work, they are of no help, Lexmark needs to invest in engineers to write drivers, they will not do so unless we stop buying their good printes controlled by flawed software. Unfortunately, after having installed the latest driver, from their site, on a computer that had never had a printer installed before and was out of the box with all the windows update, it is a LEXMARK problem. Everything else works fine. LEXMARKS problems continue to be an issue. This is my last LEXMARK.
