If vista then click start, click control panel, click on printers, then click on add printer. Select local printer from option and select use existing port. From the drop down select virtual printer port from USB and select have disk and point it to your driver.

Try to update your printer driver. Please visit the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/qQJd8g. Select your operating system to download the file.
If that doesn't help, follow the steps below: 1. Disconnect the printer from your computer. 2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. Delete the Lexmark X2350 print object. 3. Reboot your pc. 4. Once the pc completely boots up, reconnect the printer into the pc. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. 5. To ensure the print object has been successfully created automatically. Go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. You should see a new Lexmark X2350 print object in the list. 6. Try to print again.

I'm having issues getting the lexmark z25 drivers for windows 7


There is no driver for windows 7, in fact, they don't even have a vista driver for this printer.

If you absolutely must use this printer under windows 7, you could use VirtualBox (virtualbox.org), to create a virtual computer, install XP in the virtual computer, then redirect the usb or lpt port to the virtual computer. Then you'd have to save the document to a shared folder, open the document in the virtual XP, and print. Even sharing the printer over the virtual network (or off a real xp machine and real network) won't work, since win7 doesn't know how to 'speak' Z25 'language'.

Frankly, it's a LOT easier, and really, when you consider your time, cheaper to buy a new printer that has a windows 7 driver.

Print with usb cable


hi-

when you install the driver, don't connect printer yet to pc. wait for a prompt for you plug in the USB cable so that it will create its own usb vitual printer port, so you mean when you go to printers and faxes, right click on your printer and go to properties then ports, which port has a check mark? it should be usb001 or something then usb virtual printer port.

It would be better for me, as far as an alert to your follow up questions are concerned if you would use the comment box below to reach me. Thanks.

In your list of ports to assign your printer to, there should be a virtual USB port.

Do you see that in your port list?

Normally, when connecting a USB printer, the software involved requires that the USB cable be unattached, and then when prompted you connect the cable. This allow the installation software creates the virtual port.

That me know about this. And please use the comment box below.

Wireless Connection


I have the same problem and I have exhausted all options that I can think of. Last night I reset the network settings for the printer and started over and at the end, after going through the whole wizard again, it spit out a new network page and looked like the problems were fixed. (was now on channel 11,used to be on 6, also said it was connected to the wireless network when before it said it was not). I got excited thinking it had finally connected, but when I went to print a test page I got the same communication problem error message. I just got off the phone with Lexmark Support and he told me it was most likely printing to the wrong port. When I go to my printers properties page, it is printing to USB001 (Lexmark virtual printer port), and he told me it needs to be on "Lexmark 1400 Series" port. I will try to create a new port tonight and hopefully I have "Lexmark 1400 Series" as an option to choose from.

Jeez this thing is exhausting. I consider myself to be fairly computer savvy and I have wasted 4 nights working on this thing to no avail. How do people who don't know their way around a computer handle wifi printing to the 1420??

Drivers downloaded but printer won't work


In printers and faxes please check:

1. Right click the icon and left click the properties and in the properties check the port whether it is usb or not. If not click on the usb virtual printer port and then click apply and ok. and then print.

In device manager check whether there is a usb printing support or not . If it is not there then connect the priniter directly to the wall outlet and unplug & replug the usb cable from the back of the computer. Found new h/w will come up to update the drivers.. follow the wizard. An thne once finished , print the teat page.
