MP460 uses a USB cable if you get one (they are cheap) there should be a port on the back of your computer for it and with your printer switched on power up your computer and your computer should detect the printer. However if you have no USB port then you need either a new computer or an old printer that uses an old style port!

Cx5000 only prints headers why?


hello M,Nelson

I gonna need a little bit more information , but i supose it's a personal printer and you dont share it over your Network.

the solution is simple, close your printer and take the power cable off, after close your computer.
plug back the power cord for your printer and re-open your computer.

it's supose to do the trick. let me know.

look for the ink level, a simple way to notice if it is the printer or the computer the problem, try to print a test page.

Go to www.canon.com check for driver downloads, your make and model, operational system, make sure printer is plugged in and on, so the software can detect the proper communication port.

I dont know where the Dell 725 Printer Power Cord goes into the tower Which outlet on the tower


The Dell 725 printer power cord does NOT plug in to the tower. The Video Cable, on the other hand, plugs in to the tower's video output. Look for a connector like the one from the printer (often USB these days) to plug it in to the computer. There was a diagram that came with the computer that showed how to do all the connections, and the Power Cord does NOT plug in to the tower. USB connections are in various locations on your computer's tower, in the back and sometimes in the front too.

Adding the printer to your computer


Plug it in to the UBS port, and see if the computer will show any signs of installing it. If not, go to the Lexmark web site and download the correct driver.
Or email them for correct help.
