Ok, since you state that you have an older iMac, I'm going to presume that it is not an Intel-Mac and that your OS X version is Linux based. So with that information known, you will just have to search for the printer (Lexmark 3400) drivers for the version of OS X you are currently running. Since the older Mac's use CUPS instead of drivers that PC's use. Basically instead of searching in Google for a Lexmark 3400 print drivers for an iMac, you would need to instead search Google for CUPS Lexmark 3400 OS X. Then you would get a link like this:

http://fixunix.com/ubuntu/505065-lexmark-printer-ubuntu.html

And if you follow that link you would get to download the needed file(s). And usually the installation instruction is there on the same site. It is a bit confusing to figure it all out but if you get lost there come back and post it here and someone will help. And if i happen to come across you i will be glad to help with the confusing manual installation of the CUPS into your iMac.

I have a HP computer new with Windows 7 and wonder if this is compatible to add an older Lexmark Z25


It is not compatible with win 7
You may can find an updated driver at lexmark
It has been my experience when adding a device not compatible it creates problems elsewhere
Remembermif it does cause problems you can always restore back prior to installing

Hav x3470 an installed with 3400 series cd.prints great but will not scan an doesnt hav a all in one center,is the 3400 cd the right one?


Yes, the installation cd has the All-in-One Center software. But, if you have already used that to install the software, I suggest you download the updated driver from the Lexmark website. Here's the link: http://bit.ly/c9GW5Y. Choose the correct driver compatible with your computer's operating system. Download and install the software. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

I'm trying to set up my lexmark printer to my new imac, i have installed the cd and set up the printer wirelessly but when i go to print it says there is a error and the printer is off line even though the...


You have to convince the computer the printer is online. Is your computer capable of wireless connection to the printer?

I solved this problem on my system by removing and reinstalling the print driver. My system is a little different, I have my printers wired to my network as stand alone.

Make sure you have the proper drivers - you probably already have .... double check ... www.lexmark.com/support and make sure your printer is compatable with your operating system

I tried to give you some ideas ...

Dont have installation cd for lexmark x3400


If you are running Windows XP or Vista, you may use the generic driver for Lexmark 3400 series. All you have to do is to connect the printer to the computer and let the computer detect it. If the printer is not a Plug-n-Play device, the computer would allow you to manually select the generic driver.

Or, you may check any of the links below and download the driver for your Lexmark X3400 for free:

Have a great day!
