I ave a lexmark 4200 series a three in one... it worked good on my other computer with windows xp cant get it to work with the new one with windows vista says it is not plugged in the computer even when ya...


I had the same problem and can give you the exact instructions I was given and used to fix mine. I am not a tech guru so do not have all the underlying reason about why.

A link will be provided. It is the place to download the updated version of the Lexmark Driver for Vista, whether it be 32 bit or 64 bit, or even Windows 7, etc.

The other thing I had to do was to update Vista; in other words short of a full reinstall of the Vista software is the only way I could get it to work. Do not plug the cable for the Lexmark hardware in until the Vista has completely finished doing the update. If you do update instead of full install with the Vista disc, you can still keep all of your docs, etc.

Link for Lexmark updated drivers:
http://www.lexmark.com/lexmark/sequentialem/home/0,6959,204816596_1019285789_0_en,00.html


1. So to recap: delete all of your printers in control panel.
2. To a complete update with your Vista installation disk.(Make sure the cable to the Lexmark printer is unplugged until Vista finishing installing itself.
3. Install the updated software from the Lexmark link.
4. You may still have to use the Lexmark original installation software to tweak some items for the different applications such as fax versus scanner versus copy, but the main problem for me was no printer or scanner working. I do not use it for fax since I have Efax, so that was not an issue for me.

Good luck.

3.) Click View then show hidden devices

4.) right click on the printer and click uninstall

5.) Unplug your printer usb from your computer

6.) RESTART

7.) INSTALL THE PRINTER WITH THE VISTA DRIVERS YOU DOWNLOADED..

 REMEMBER NOT TO PLUG IN YOUR PRINTER UNTIL THE SETUP SOFTWARE TELLS YOU TO DO SO.



Hope my info will solve your problem, Thanx for using fixya, Good luck.

I dont know the exact tip for this one. but you can try the following steps to solve this problem.

Download the Windows Vista printer driver for the SCX-4216F multifunction printer from www.samsung.com.
  1. Install the driver on your Windows Vista computer. During installation, you’ll be prompted to connect the printer to your computer. Choose the option to proceed with installation without connecting the printer.
  2. After installation completes, open the Printers applet from the Windows Vista Control Panel.
  3. Right-click on the new Samsung SCX-4100 Series printer and choose Properties.
  4. Go to the Ports tab.
  5. Click Add Port…, select Local Port, then click New Port…
  6. For the port name, enter exactly the network path and share name of your printer (e.g. \\RECEPTION\Samsung SCX-4×16 Series).
  7. Click OK, and double-check that this new port is selected with the checkbox next to it.
  8. Click OK to close the printer properties.

Couldn't install lexmark 8300 printer software on my window vista driver computer


Follow this link to the official Lexmark website and download the driver.
http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi

If you can't follow that link, go to www.lexmark.com. On the top menu, there is a link called "Drivers and Downloads". Click it and select your series, then your OS system, and there you go.

The drivers for Vista are finally updated.

I had the same problem for about a year... now it works fine.
