With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

To fix a fouled install:
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the software asks for the printer connect it and continue

My windows pc is not detecting my lexmark z600 printer


How do you have it connected to you PC Ethernet, USB, Parallel cable? Check your connections. I am assuming it is USB since you have no internet connection at home. Go to your printer settings and see what port it is connected to. If it is a USB make sure it points to that connection in the panel.

Whilst still installing the Lexmark Z600 software, it give a report 'remoteinstallation not successsful because the printer is not communicating'.


Hi. Check if printer is on. Make sure it's plugged in to a known working power outlet. Check if the USB cable you're using is still ok - no physical defects. Or you can try using a different USB installation cable. Once you connect printer via usb cable to pc, it should recognize it even if you're not trying to run the software yet. Hope this helps.
