Question about Lexmark Z600 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Lexmark printer not communicating w/ computer.

When installing the printer software it asks me to go through a process in which it will align the printer i guess, so that it will print images on pages properly im assuming but a message pops up when i try to do so and says "unable to complete action because lexmark printer is not communicating"

We've had this printer for a while and i've got it to print once.
All other times i go through the printing process and the image never prints..it just pends forever.

Im not sure what type of lexmark printer it is...the software said lexmark z600 but the printer itself has "x2500" printed above the printer buttons.

If you can help me with this problem please do.
You can contact me via email (runswithunicorns@yahoo.com)
I appreciate it.

Printer issues


well the primary reason for a communication problem in case of printers is either that the physical connection of the printer is not proper place... or i would recommend you to first uninstall the entire lexmark software...
And then reinstall the software from the Cd's that you recieved with the printer & just make sure that when you start installing the software at that time the printer c able should be disconnected from the system & reconnect the cable only when the software will ask you to connect in the process of reinstalling the software....
