Question about Lexmark Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

The Printer USB Port appears to have failed. Have changed out the USB cable and tried every USB port on the computer. Still the Printer does not communicate with the computer. Have uninstalled and started from ground zero with latest drivers. Printer is a Lexmark X6150.

Does other usb devices work on computer..if yes then could be an issue with printer port.
try to disconnect the power and usb cable from the back of the printer and press and hold down the power button for 30 sec and then reconnect the cables and try again...open the backdoor and try to move the rollers in upward direction.Make sure the unit is connected directly to the walljack.
if still does not work..printer needs to be replaced.

Set-up won't recognize that the USB cable is connected to both printer and computer and therefore printer won't work. What's up with that??


1. Confirm the USB port on the computer you are connecting your printer to is being recognized by your computer. The easiest way to do this would be to plug a known good USB Memory stick into the USB port you want to use. If you can read the contents of the USB Memory stick then the port should work. Remove the Memory stick, start the printer installation program (Make sure you don't the printer connected), want until the setup program tells you to connect the printer before you attach the Printer's USB cable.
If the printer isn't recognized try a different USB port, when picking a new USB port to try select a higher priority port, for example in increasing priority from, an external USB hub, a powered external hub, a monitor based hub, USB ports on the front of the computer, up to the USB ports at the computer rear. For USB ports on the same circuit select an USB 2.0 before an USB 3.0 port

How connect a tcp ip printer.


Hi Kumar,
You can modify or change port in the printer driver to connect it through LAN cable. Please notice whether you use static or dynamic ip address. Please follow below step.

In the following step we will modify your existing USB connection. Check it out!

Step:
  • Open printer driver list.
  • Right click on the printer drive name (e.g Canon IR2270).
  • Select Properties.
  • Click Ports tab.
  • Click Add Port, then select Standard TCP/IP Port.
  • Click New Port.
  • Click Next on add port wizard menu.
  • Type IP Address (for static ip setting) or Printer Name (DHCP), then click Next (computer will search the printer).
  • When the printer has been found, finish the wizard.
  • Close Add Port menu.
  • Now you have new port represented by IP Address or Printer Name (with checked box active) in port list .
  • Click Apply.
Bingo! Now your printer ready to print via LAN. Sometimes printing right after setting this new port not always succeed. Don't be panic. Restart both of printer and the computer.
Next time you want to connect the printer via USB port so you change port back to USB. Just simply check on the check box next to USB Port in port list and click apply. You may need to restart both printer and computer too :)

Have a nice day!

Printer not talking to desk top.


Please check usb cable first, make sure that it is ok. Then check usb port,move the usb cable to other port. Then check if usb cable and port are ok, try to connect other printer or device by using that usb cable and port. If works well means the usb port on printer got a problem. But if still not work the problem could be on usb cable or usb port on computer.
If you are sure that both the printer and computer are ok, try to reinstall the printer driver. Good luck!.

NOTE: Some port replicators or docking stations for laptops or notebooks may cause a problem.

Watch the Device Manager indow while you do so. The appearance of the items in the screen should change as Device Manager tries to recognize the device.

Click here for instructions on accessing System Profiler, and look under Hardware > USB for the printer.12 Does Device Manager show a change in appearance?-If Yes, contact Lexmark Technical Support for additional assistance. -If No, there may be a problem with your computer and its USB support. The computer must recognize the USB cable in order for installation to work. 13 Reboot your PC and try these steps again.

How do i change the language bak to English? And how do i print from my macbook laptop onto the printer


TO CHANGE THE LANGUAGE:

From the printer control panel, press the 'Spanner' icon.

Press the right arrow button, and then press OK

Press OK again.

Press the arrow buttons until the language that you want appears on the display, and then press OK.
If you are sure, press the right arrow button, and then press OK to change the language.
To print from your macbook laptop you may have to install additional software onto your laptop from the installation CD. Insert the CD and wait for the 'Welcome' screen to appear. (Note if the 'Welcome' screen does not appear after a minute, then click the CD icon on the desktop). Double click 'Install' and follow the screen instructions.

Some additional notes that may apply to your machine(s):

If the printer is connected to a desktop computer through the rear USB port and you decide to connect a laptop computer to the printer through the Quick Connect laptop port, then the Quick Connect laptop port connection overrides the rear USB port connection. The active print jobs on the desktop computer may be cancelled. Pause or cancel active jobs on the desktop computer before switching between ports.

To summerise:

Pause or cancel active jobs on the desktop computer.

Connect a USB cable to the laptop computer and then to the Quick Connect laptop port on the front of the printer.

Warning-Potential Damage: Do not plug in or remove the USB cable from the Quick Connect laptop port while a memory device is being accessed by the printer.

If you have not yet installed the printer software on your laptop then install it now.

Hope this helps

Hi I have a new brother printer and it was working fine. I have gone to use it again and it keeps saying the printer is offline...yet I have registered again and everything is the same. Help


check that the printer cable is inserted fittingly, on the computer and on the printer, if alright,change the port from which the printer cable is connected,am assuming it is usb. if still not responding, turn off the printer, reboot the computer, and turn it on, if it fails, unplug the printer from the computer and uninstall the driver. reboot the computer and reinstall, while installing, it may prompt you to plug it in. if it does not, do not worry, just plug the printer cable after the installation is through, the computer should recognize a new device and go on to auto install, if it does not, then you have bad usb port port or controller drivers. to be certain, plug any other usb device onto the port(s), if positive, buy a new usb card and install on computer and connect printer

Chances are you reconnected the printer to a different USB port and your default is still set up for the other port...

Look at your printer settings and chances are it set up the printer again for the new port.

Either change your default printer or move the cable back to the original port.

Power surge on hub port error msg


The printer is the problem, obviously but, also try using a different USB cable to see if that doesn't help! When plugging up th cable, look for anything out of the ordinary! If changing the USB cable doesn't resolve the situation then it could be something shorted out in your printer and you need to take it to a service shop for repair! regards, babb
