Re: Won't Go

Your computer being fixed may have new operating system files running that are not compatable with your lexmark now. You need updated drivers for your printer. Go to lexmark on the internet (google it) and choose location or drivers list/link. Also, get them to send you a new disk. You will need some proof that you already have the printer but no disk, look on the back of your printer for the serial number. You will need this when requesting help. Once you have your new dik and drivers, you wil be right again.

Connect another laptop to my wireless kodak printer but it won't recognise the printer

check the website of your printer such as if its a Lexmark go to and see if the model number is compatable with the Vista programming. A lot of printers do not operate with Vista. I have three printers that only operate with XP and Windows 7

Epson workforce 520 won't recognise ink cartidges

When replacing ink on the Epson Workforce 520, Ensure the cartridges have the correct/same number of gold contacts. Ive seen them with 7 and 9 gold square contacts and they were otherwise identical, and the ones with 9 contacts threw an "cartridge not recognized" error on the printer's dispay.

Why won't my printer scan a document to my laptop?

Make sure the Lexmark OCR scan software is installed on your laptop. The software is available only on the installation disc that came with your printer. If you still haven't installed the software on your computer and you don't have the installation disc, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center to request for one.
If you were able to scan documents before using your Lexmark printer, it could be just a slight communication issue. A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).

Installed new 28 and 29 cartridges in lexmark x2550 and it won't recognise the cartridge and won't print at all, very frustrating please help urgently

It could be that your cartridges need some cleaning. On your computer, launch the Lexmark Solution Center. Click Start menu > Programs or All Programs >Lexmark 2500 Series > Lexmark Solution Center. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Try to print again.

When I try to print I get an error and it won't print. The error message never shows up so I don't know what the error is. I have removed and reinstalled this printer 6 times now. I have rebooted...

Sounds to me like a bad USB cable,
Also when you're re-installing the printer are you using new/different drivers?

I would try a new cable and the latest drivers direct from

Have you tried reinstalling the firmware for the printer. If it is already loaded on your computer then you should be able to reinstall the firmware in order to get it booted.

hope this helps (ie if you haven't gotten it fixed already)
