My printer isnt printing whats being sent to it??

I just bought a lexmark printer for my labtop. I set it up an it was working just fine. But for some reason when i go to print things it wont print them out. So i went into the control panal an looked under my printer an the information was sent to the printer. The usb cord is in the correct spot ( made that mistake last time), I have basic computer knowledge but no with outout devices so i gave up on trying to figure it out. Its happend before an my friend had it fixed in 2 min so i know its something simple i just cant pin point it...???

Go back and look at the printers (Start, Printers and Faxes) and be sure that your printer is listed and that it is set as the default printer.
If it is not, then right click and select "Set as Default"

If the above is already correct then right click on your printer and select properties. Click on the Ports tab and be sure the USB port is selected.

When printing documents from my PC documents always sent to queue


Go to control panel, printers. Set your defaults there. You probably have spooling enabled. Uncheck it and your print job will go to the printer, rather than to spooling. Spooling is like rolling the print job up on a spool until the whole thing is processed, then unwinding it to the printer.

Iron on transfers lexmark x1290


In your printer driver, select the highest dpi setting and the correct paper setting for your type of printer:

Iron-ons are very waxy and the ink may not adhere if not put on thickly. Bellow are some suggested printer settings. For the best results check your printer manual or with your printer's manufacture. CANON: T-shirt transfers.
EPSON: High quality glossy paper or special coated paper, depending on the model.
HEWLETT-PACKARD: High quality glossy paper.
Lexmark: T-shirt transfers.
IMPORTANT: Then set the paper thickness lever on your printer for standard paper. You want the ink nozzles very close to the page.

My Lexmark X75 PrinTrio Won't Print Color


Go into the control panel. Select printers. Move the mouse over to the printer icon. Press the right mouse button. Select properties. Select printing preferences. This is where it changes my mfg but make sure that print in grey scale isn't checked off or any other settings in the finish section that would disable you from printing in color.

If that doesn't work, it could be the contact points going to the cartridge on your printer. It could be the ribbon cable. If these are the case you should take it into a shop to specifically pinpoint what the problem is.

Lexmark T642 Slow Slow Printing


I've had this problem with the Lexmarks's T640 printers connected via USB to Mac OS 10.5.5 machines.

Problem: The Mac OS' default resolution of 1200 DPI for this printer causes the printer to have to rasterize the print job again AFTER it arrives at the printer. The printer does a painfully slow job of this.

Solution: Change the default resolution of your print jobs to "600dpi".

Instructions:

1.)Call up the printer settings menu by starting a print job and clicking the up-arrow next to "Printer" box.

2.)Click on the drop-down list with the name of your application and choose "Printer Features".
Change your resolution to "600dpi". Oddly, I find that "1200dpi Image Quality" is almost as fast.

3.)It might be a good idea to "Save as" this new configuration in the "Presets" menu at the top of your list.

You should notice a tenfold increase in the time it takes the printer to actually produce print jobs now.

Additionally, in the "Color Matching" settings (you can get there by changing from the "Printer Features" settings), be sure that you are using "ColorSync" so your printer isn't having to do any additional processing in that area.
