Question about Lexmark Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

I can no longer print to my Lexmark 6500.

We have wireless printing in the house but for the past month or so, no one has been able to print to our Lexmark 6500. I've had this happen before and usually when I unhook everything and reboot and it fixes the problem. This time it doesn't work. I've unplugged the printer, I've turned off my firwall and nothing works. On top of everything, I cannot locate the installation Cd. I thought that if I reistalled everything it might help. Any thoughts? The printer is only a year or so old. Please help.

    I hooked up the usb cable and the printer works fine. It seems that the wireless printer is not communicating/talking to my laptop. It used to a month or so ago. I'm not sure what to do now. Reinstall the software from online? Please help.



    Thanks,

Make sure the problem isnt with the PC, print a document but dont send it to the printer, print it to a document(it will be listed as shown here)d_schrute_3.png
If the document contains the text/pictures you wanted to print then the job is spooling properly. Make sure your printer drivers are up to date by downloading the latest from HP Customer Care. Also try copying what you want or screen shotting it and pasting it into word or another program like paint or notepad.

Might be a problem with the router, or router location. Check the signal strength from the printer.
If your signal only has 1 or 2 bars, it could lose its connection very easily.

You should be able to move your modem and router, anywhere in the house, and it will not erase settings. Just have to have a strong cable signal going to the modem.

If the signal strength is not the problem, your router could be getting hot and cutting out. Or getting old and going bad. Try also resetting the router and reconfiguring it.

1. You could try to reinstall the Z2420 driver on your computer. 2. Try to reset the wireless network adapter of your printer.

Open Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility to reconfigure your printer to connect to your wireless network.
Thanks.

Cannot print from laptop to printer using wireless print server


This is probably the Software Firewall on your laptop

you should probably tell your firewall software that you have an internal network (Laptop-desktop-printer) you should add the IP range of the wireless network as a trusted network.

This model does not come with network printing as far as I know... you would probably have to buy a printserver
