DO NOT use the Windows 7 Lexmark Driver for the 5400 series on the model X5470 all-in-one! I just assembled a new Win 7 computer and could not get the obvious Win7 64 bit driver to work. I called Lexmark tech support several times, and the third time they conceded that you can't use it. You have to use THIS ONE!
CJS5400en.exe (just for the X5400). Make sure you UNINSTALL COMPLETELY any previous Lexmark printer driver and check the hard drive for any vestiges of previous installations BEFORE installing the new driver...and do NOT use the 'cleaning utility' file that is on the Lexmark site for Win 7 - to clean all bits of former installations first...According to tech support, it doesn't work on Win 7!! I told the tech person that the driver site needs to be more specific on which models use which drivers...he agreed.

First I would try to copy any document without useing the computer, just use the copy function on your lexmark unit. If it does work try going into the control panel on your computer, got add remove programs and get rid of the lexmark program. Try to reinstall it from the disc. If it still does'nt work it is one of two things, either the usb cable is bad or your cd rom is not reading properly. you can have your computer manufacturer check the cd rom remotely from an online chat which is in the help and support tab when you click on the start tab at the bottom left of your computer.

I had to go thru everything and uninstalled anything that said "Lexmark"---then got my directions out that I used to hook the printer up when it was new and follwed them..not the users guide , this was a sheet of instructions to hook it up the first time...and after playing with this printer and trying all kinds of things for over a month it now works...I think i read somewhere that you could find the instructiion sheet at the web site
1 uninstall everything lexmark
2turn off anti virus
3 unplug usb cord & power cord
4 plug in power cord
5plug in phone line and set up fax info
6 turn on computer and put in cd
7 click Install / continue
8 let run / it will tell you when to hook up usb cord
9 let it install and print test page
10 if test page prints you are home free

In the laptop there will be two sockets where you can insert the usb wire.try inserting the usb wire in another socket and check out is it printing.also it can happen if the usb wire is faulty.replace the $2 usb wire and check out with new usb wire.also it happens if the usb driver in the laptop is malfunctioned.u will need to reload the usb drivers of the laptop it that case.

My MX922 printer worked well this morning. All cartridges have ink but ALL lights under the cartridges are on and print comes out blank. There are no error codes or anything abnormal displayed


This problem is mainly happens to all inkjet printers. If your printer print blank pages then please at least once go to official site of Canon and check whether there is any printer/scanner drivers update is available or not. If yes then download it. Also check your ink cartridges. Because if there is no print on paper that means your ink might be dry.Sometimes it clog the print head. If your ink cartridges get dry change it. Or you should clean your printer's print nozzle by using printer's control panel. I hope all these suggestions helps you. If doesn't then watch Canon MX922 Manual English

My Epson WF-3640 is printing with gaps in the text. How do I fix this issue?


Make sure you should remove shipping tape from the ink cartridge. These taps are used to protect printer during shipping but you have to remove it before starting printing. Beacuse these taps prevent the ink to entering in print head. If you will not found shipping tape in your printer then there is terr off strip, remove it. The tear off strip seals the the vent holes on the top of the cartridge to prevent it from drying out on the shelf or during shipping.
After ensuring that the shipping tape has been removed, run the printer's "Head Cleaning" utility to prime the cartridge, then print a test page.

Prinnter not printing but showing 'put custom in manual tray'


There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.


Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.

Samsung kicked out hp 3in 1 printer already installed


Don't have your HP designated as the default printer (if possible)when you hook up the Samsung. When the Samsung is hooked up it sees the HP is the default printer. Well it can't have that, they discard the HP drivers. What does Samsung care about HP drivers theres only one printer port setup and thats the USB port you have them sharing. So yes you need to get a second cable. Tim
