Question about Lexmark X2500 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Lexmark x5320 I accidentally deleted my printer off of my Dell Vista. I have tried everything under the sun to get it reinstalled. Even tried to do a restore point. I can try to print a document and when I pull up the status is says that the status is deleting. It wont allow me to delete the documetn or cancel or pause or restart it. I have the driver disk that came with the printer. I also can't even get a test page. However, if i shut my computer down and restart it will print any pages that I had requested. Dell says call Lexmark and Lexmark says call Dell. HELP

Its a dell problem with their software. Delete the printer from teh control panel & the program listing..then reinstall!
Also...good old MS making billions from defect software products..Vista is still not solid! You may want to go back to XP home.

Printer won't print


If you are unable to delete the print jobs from the queue then please unplug the usb cable from the printer or the computer abd restart the computer. Once the computer is restarted try connecting the usb cable and check whether the jobs has been deleted and shows 0 ready.

Next, you may have to change the communication format called the "Spool format."
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. Under "Print processor" it should be set to "Lexmark 5300 series print processor." Next, under "Default datatype," select "NT EMF 1.008."
5. Click "OK" and exit back out to your desktop.
6. Please try printing again.
If this does not help the situation, please describe any differences it does make.

Lexmark 5470 printer not working on Windows Vista


If you just connected the printer to your Vista PC, the drivers probably didn't load.
If you haven't yet, you need to install the Lexmark drivers first before you can use your printer. Unplug the printer before installing, then plug it in when prompted by the software.

From the Lexmark Site:
Attention Windows Vista Users: Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.

I found the drivers by going to My Computer > OS (C:) > Drivers > Printer > deleted the file folder.
I then unpluged the printer, reinstalled the driver from the Lexmark Site (http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi#), restarted and it worked.
Good luck.
