The frimware update cannot see the printer because the printer is in error state. You need to clear the error by disregarding the error. To do this, you to make the error invalid. Please follow the steps below:

1. Turn off the printer.
2. Press and hold the the "back" and the "left" arrow button, and then turn the printer on.
3. When the printer displays "Invalid Engine Code", update the firmware of the printer.

"900 firmware error" on our Lexmark X204n printer. how do we fix it?

SOURCE: 900 service error with lexmark printer

OK, a couple of things... Some earlier Lexmark units had code on both a RIP board (raster image
processor) and an engine board. In this case, the code would have to be reloaded into both
boards. Fortunately, this can be done even if the printer will not boot to a ready state. However, if
this has already been done sucessfuly, the problem may well not be the printer but rather something
in the data stream. To confirm this, remove any and all data cables and reboot the printer. If it comes ready and you can print all the internal pages including the network config pages, then it is likely the
problem is the data stream. One must be careful when the printer is controlled by a print server
because the end user may not have control over the print que. If a corrupt or printer incomprehensible
job is stuck in the que, the printer will go to a 900 condition as soon as the network interface
initializes. This will continue until the print que is cleared.

Hope this helps...

Sean.

SOURCE: Can't print from MacBook, through Time Capsule, to Lexmark x5470

turn on the printer sharing via the system preference panel on the computer that is on the system via usb.
Then on your wifi computer look for shared printers and you'll see your printer in the list under the host computer name... use that setting and it should fire up for you!
let me know how it goes...

SOURCE: updated firmware as directed by

Excellent of Lexmark to trap the public with their inflated prices for ink cartridges and the Chips inside each cartridge that do not allow refilling or the use of any other compatible cartridge.

If you updated your firmware, you are done for!! As you said the compatible ink cartridge was working ok and Lexmark knew it, hence you were probably instructed to update to a version that looks for a Lexmark specific key to id the cartridge and force you to buy the original ones.

My printer is only 4 months old and have printed no more than 3k lines in 10 letters and some webpages and already it has stopped printing untill I buy a new black cartridge!! Talk about blackmail!! I thought I bought the printer for printing not as an excuse to enter into a life time agreement to buy ink. So the printer is not going to be used anymore and something else DEFINATELY NOT A Lexmark will replace it very soon.

The other reason why you are done for is that during the installation of the drivers you inadvertantly installed a Spyware program that reports back to Lexmark your serial number, usage and ink cartridge levels everytime you use the printer or the PC connects to the internet. Check it out, the directory is called Lx-CATS-33 and the file is IxeaCATS.exe

The best solution I can suggest is to leave ALL Lexmark kit well alone back at the shop where it belongs, However tempting the "offer" and "competitive prices" leave it alone, until they play fair, with more reasonable ink prices and the option to refill if that is your choice. There are many marketting models they could employ to recover the supposed subsidy on the printer. Also all inkjet manufacturers should be forced to remove the unecessary waste of ink everytime one switches the pinter on and off.
Hope this helps you to understand why you already wasted your money buying Lexmark, dont waste anymore of your time and effort trying to find a fix.

Come back Canon all is forgiven!!!!

SOURCE: my lexmark interact s605 is

Cathy
I have the same problem with my S605!! Although it is 18 months old.
Reading various blogs on the internet, this seems to be a common problem. Other users reporting it to Lexmark seem to get replacement printheads, sometimes more than one. Others get their machine replaced!
After having read all these negative reports my advice to you is to return it to your vendor and ask for it to be replaced with another machine from a different manufacturer.
Lexmark machines seem to have a constant ongoing problem with their printheads (for years).
Sorry to be so negative but you and I have bought ourselves a load of trouble.
Good luck
Ron

I have a lexmark prospect pro 200 series printer and there is an error message that reads "There is a problem with the printhead. Please consult User's Guide."


Updating the firmware for your Lexmark Pro200 series will help fix this problem. You will need to get rid of the error first before you can successfully update your printer. Follow these steps: 1. Open the cover of the printer > Remove the printhead. If the printhead will not go to the center, turn off the printer and pull the printhead to the center. 2. Once you have the printhead removed, close the cover of the printer and turn on the printer. 3. It will ask you to "Open Cover to Install the Printhead". Press the Cancel (Red X) button. 4. It should take you back to the "Copy" menu. 5. Proceed with the firmware update. Just go to http://bit.ly/p205fw. There'll be more than one download for your model, try the top download first. 6. Once the firmware update is successful, reinsert the printhead by following the steps on your printer screen.
