I too ran into this problem. Printer is about 2-1/2 yrs old.
Using it as a network device. I updated firmware from
a Mac OS X computer on the network.

a. Uploaded the firmware by going to lexmark site.
Do this first in preparation of upgrading firmware.
Follow instructions to get firmware update.
b. power cycle the printer (turn off & unplug power from unit)
c. power printer and turn switch back ON.
happily printer stays alive long enough to upload the new
firmware update.
d. Log on to your printer via a computer on your network
Open a browser, address will be your printer's IP address
or dns name. ex: http://192.168.1.3 (note: if you password
protected the account, you will need that info)
e. Follow menu to Configure -> Update Code where you will
"browse" to the file on your local computer (ex:
LSSTN234.FLX) and then hit the FLASH button

I may be a bit late with this but it worked for me. Uninstall your antivirus, remove any parental controls and disable your firewall. Then, reinstall the printer and download a 2008 version of your anti virus and re-enable your firewall. I haven't reactivated the parental controls just in case it all goes pear shaped.

SOURCE: Lexmark T642 Slow Slow Printing

I've had this problem with the Lexmarks's T640 printers connected via USB to Mac OS 10.5.5 machines.

Problem: The Mac OS' default resolution of 1200 DPI for this printer causes the printer to have to rasterize the print job again AFTER it arrives at the printer. The printer does a painfully slow job of this.

Solution: Change the default resolution of your print jobs to "600dpi".

Instructions:

1.)Call up the printer settings menu by starting a print job and clicking the up-arrow next to "Printer" box.

2.)Click on the drop-down list with the name of your application and choose "Printer Features".
Change your resolution to "600dpi". Oddly, I find that "1200dpi Image Quality" is almost as fast.

3.)It might be a good idea to "Save as" this new configuration in the "Presets" menu at the top of your list.

You should notice a tenfold increase in the time it takes the printer to actually produce print jobs now.

Additionally, in the "Color Matching" settings (you can get there by changing from the "Printer Features" settings), be sure that you are using "ColorSync" so your printer isn't having to do any additional processing in that area.

T642 getting a watchdog error with no other error codes


Hi, the way to fix this problem is by updating the firmware on your printer. Go to support.lexmark.com/printerfirmware and use the following keycode: lsstp240 that will download the firmware that you need to flash to your printer. To flashed you can do the following. If your printer is connected to the network then go to a browser and where you will type the Url (ex www.fixya.com) type the IP address of the printer. Then go to configuration, then go to Update firmware and browse for the firmware that you just downloaded and hit send. The printer will start beeping and saying updating firmware do not turn off. Once the firmware update is complete then the printer will restart and you should not see the watchdog error again.

Black ink


Please try the following to resolved the issue:

Run a series of head cleaning
1. Make sure the printer is turned on but not printing. Make sure there are no error lights or messages appearing in the LCD.
NOTE: You cannot clean the print head if the any of the cartridges are expended. Replace the appropriate ink cartridge before proceeding.
2. Load letter size paper.
3. Click on START, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTER & FAXES then right click on CX3200 printer Icon then select printing preferences
4. Click on the UTILITY or MAINTENANCE tab, then click on HEAD CLEANING.
5. Follow the instructions on the screen to clean the printhead. Cleaning takes about 30 seconds, during which time the printer makes some noise and the power light flashes. Never turn off the printer while the power light is flashing, unless the printer has not moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.
6. When the power light stops flashing click PRINT NOZZLE CHECK PATTERN and then click NEXT.
7. If the nozzle check pattern has no gaps in its lines, click FINISH. If the pattern has any gaps, click CLEAN to clean the printhead again.
8. If the situation continues after three cleaning cycles and nozzle checks, replace one of the affected ink cartridge(s).
9. Once the cartridge(s) has been replaced, please follow steps one through seven up to three times.
If the nozzle check still has gaps after you have run at least 3 consecutive cleaning cycles and replaced the affected ink cartridge(s) with genuine Epson inks, your printer will require service.

Sharing the printer over network


Can you print from the print server? If so that eliminates the drives. Are you sure permissions are correct?
