Question about Lexmark P4350 All-In-One InkJet Printer

3 Answers

Windows does not start when I leave my printer plugged in

If I connect my Lexmark P4350 to a USB 1 I find that windows does not start unless I unplug the printer before booting. There is no problem if the printer is connected to a USB 2 port but I dont have any spare USB 2 ports so that is not a satisfactory solution. Any ideas?

    The book doesn't say whether it's a USB 1 or 2 device but it works fine on USB 1, it's just that the computer wont boot up if it is plugged into the USB port on startup. I get the logo of the motherboar manufacturer and it freezes there. This doesnt happen when the printer is left plugged into a USB 2 port but then it doesnt print properly - I just get the first few lines of a page printed and then the rest of the page is blank. Weird.

First if your USB cord is too long try to switch it out with a smaller cord. If that does not work please unplug printer boot up and enter the BIOS settings.

Then check to make sure your boot sequence is setup to Hard Disk first and not USB, you need to make sure the USB Boot Device does not have priority over HDD.

Finally make sure that USB Emulation is not turned on in the BIOS.

If all of the above does not fix the issue you may have a faulty USB port or a bad mother board.

Trying to add a lexmark p4350 to a laptop e.system windows vista


Hi,

You can first download a new driver from the link posted at the very bottom. If that still does not work please follow the instructions as shown below here.

This behavior can be caused by your security programs. It may blocked some components when you install the driver, or it may blocked the communication between the system and the printer driver.

I suggest that you remove the printer again, temporary disable the anti-virus and firewall and reinstall the driver.

The following steps can be referred when you remove the printer.

Remove printer

1. Click the "Start" button, type PRINTER in the search box and press Enter.
2. Find the icons which are related to Lexmark P4350, and delete them.
3. Right-click on the blank part of the window, and choose "Run as administrator"->"Server Properties".
4. On the Drivers tab, select the listed printer and click the Remove button. Please then select Remove driver and driver package.
5. Open Start menu, input APPWIZ.CPL in the Search box and press ENTER to launch "Programs and Features".
6. Try to remove all related printer software.

Additionally, please check if your driver is downloaded from the following website.

http://www.lexmark.com/lexmark/sequentialem/home/0,6959,204816596_1019285789_0_en,00.html

Important Note: Microsoft provides third-party contact information to help you find technical support. This contact information may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this third-party contact information.

Before reinstalling the driver, I suggest that you temporary disable the anti-virus and firewall. After reinstalling, check if the issue is resolved.

If the issue persists, I suggest that you change the USB port. If the printer is connected via a USB hub, please bypass the hub and directly connect the printer to the USB port on the motherboard.

Hope it helps.

P4350 dose all but wont scan


Try this. Unplug the printer usb connection from the computer. Re-run the installation cd in the computer. When the software asks for the printer to be plugged in via the usb cable, do so. If this does not help, maybe a firewall is blocking it. Make sure to allow all Lexmark and printer communications to go through the firewall. Leave a comment if you need more assistance. Thanks.

Computer won't communicate with printer


Make sure that the printer driver you are using is compatible with your version of windows. If so, open all printers in "control panel" and make sure that this printer is the preferred printer and not an old one you might still have installed.
