Lexmark Z11 won't work

Hello, I have a notebook with Vista and Lexmark Z11. I bought a suitable cord for connecting them together, installed the drivers, but the printer won't print the test page, the error appears in the window with tasks for printing. But the control panel shows the installed printer and says "Ready to work", and the printed doesn't giva any sound.

Please help me what to do.

    Thank you for a fast answer, I tried to do as you said, but failed again. I deleted the printer from the control panel, then installed the driver again, then restarted the PC, tried to print a test page and again an error :(
    At the same time I see that the printer react to the restarting of the system, he begins to roll and throw out the paper. But doesn't print.
    What else can I do?

    The matter is that the device manager doesn't display the printers at all. There are no printers in it's list of devices. How can it be if the installation of the printer went successfully?

    How can it be that the device manager doesn't display the printer in the list of devices and at the same time control panel shows that the printer is succesfully installed? Where exactly is the problem?

Remove the software for the printer through ad remove programs in control panel

Then keep unit unplugged from usb. Install the device drivers then plug unit in when software asks or after it requests a reboot.

    Try removing the printer software by using ad remove. If that doesn't work right click with mouse button on my computer.

    1. Right click on my computer
    2. select properties
    3.) Hardware
    4.)Then select device manager

    5.) Remove the printer and all printers from this location also remove all usb drivers reboot the pc with printer unplugged from device. By remove I mean Uninstall. You can do this by right clicking on the specific item in the list.

    Then do the software installation without printer attached. when asked plug in printer.

    This should work unless there is somthing physically wrong with the printer.

    Hopefully you can see this picture. once removed it will take quite a bit for your pc to boot as it reinstalls the usb items etc.

    Did you install the printer software before plugging in usb cable? Some printer require you install software then connect printer to machine.

We have windows vista and when we tried to install compac IJ300 it only goes up to windows 98 - can we install that using vista???


I found this solution on another website, I suggest you give it a try.

Everything works fine since I installed Vista except for my printer a Compaq IJ300 which is a Lexmark Z11 in disguise. I installed the driver for the regular Z11 through the "Add Printer " but had problems.

Went to Lexmark site - downloaded drivers for Z11 Series ColorFine- working perfectly. So far I have no other problems with vista.

I have a Windows Vista and wonder if my Lexmark Z11 will work on it. I no longer have the C-D Rom. Is it possible that I could get a diskette?


Z11 drivers are available here:
http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi

Vista drivers are not listed on the site. You can try the XP drivers to see if they work or contact live support at the link above and see if they have any.

Lexmark z11 Vista Compatible?


Looks like I've cracked it [Touches wooden desk]. Need a USB to IEEE 1284 36-pin Parallel Printer Cable, like the one I received today (ordered yesterday from www.cables2u.co.uk). First, connect it to Z11. Turn on Z11 and boot up Vista PC/laptop. (I run Vista Business on my laptop.) Connect cable to computer. Message appears "Installing device driver software". Click it for status. 'Found New Hardware' box appears. Click 'Locate and install driver software'. A message appears "Error loading LXADSUI.DLL. Specified module could not be found". Click 'OK'. Message appears saying driver software installed successfully. ["Yeah, right ..."] (Have faith, folks!) Now, click Start, then Control Panel and double-click Printers. Right click on Z11 and click on Set As Default Printer. Right click on Z11 again and click on Properties. Check on Ports tab that Port USB is ticked for Z11. On Cartridge Maintenance tab, check right cartridge is showing. If not, click 'Install/Change Cartridge' and follow instructions. Then 'Clean Print Nozzles' and 'Align Cartridges'. Check settings on the other tabs in Properties look OK and try printing a test page! It looks good to me!

Need cord to connect printer to comuter for Lexmark Z11 printer


You likely need a USB cable with an 'A' connection on one end and a 'B' connection on the other end. They can be found at stores like Best Buy, Office Max, Staples etc. If the computer you are trying to connect the printer to doesn't have any USB ports, then you will have to add a USB card in one of your computer's expansion slots to allow the printer to work.
