Printer will not turn on; Have contacted Lexmark tech support; No help

Four years ago we obtained a Lexmark Z25 printer as part of a computer purchase package. We never used the printer until two days ago. When my daughter tried to use it with her new Toshiba laptop, it runs Vista. the printer would not turn on. We have conatacvted Lexmark and they put there heads in the sand due to the printer age. They did not care that it had never been out of the box. I also checked their website for any technical data forthe printer but none was found. I could use any suggestions you have to get this printer up and running. With several children in college I do not have ample funds to just go buy a new one. Thanks for the help. Also is there a driver available to use with this printer and MS Vista just in case we get to function again?

All you need to do is update your printer drivers, as this printer was designed before vista came about, and possibly will not run on windows xp service pack 2 either. Go to lexmarks site and under drivers, look for your printer type. Download newest driver for it, and store a copy of it on a cd in case you lose it off computer or somthing happens to it to save having to download it again.

My Lexmark Z25 is not recognized by my computer. I have had this printer for years and have tried every thing but to no avail.

I am assuming you have Windows XP.
1. Be sure you have selected the Z25 as the output device when the printer window appears. You may have an old printer selected - or some other output device (like "Microsoft Office Document Image Writer").
2. Open "Printer & Faxes" in the Control Panel. Is the Z25 there?
If not, go to:
and download a fresh driver - and install it.
3. Your cable may be broke. Your printer power may be broke. Does your power light come on?

Want to install it on my new computer and do not

Go to the following URL:

There you will find the drivers for both Windows XP and 2000. As this printer was discontinued some time ago it would be a good idea to put a copy of the driver onto a CD or DVD and store it in a safe place. Eventually Lexmark will take the driver off of their site and you will then find it very difficult to find them again.

Driver for Lexmark Z25 printer

According to the Lexmark site they don't seem to have a compatible driver yet.
If you go to this link,,6959,239544855_1230010431_0_en,00.html you can contact them either by phone or email to ask about your specific printer and when they are likely to have a driver for you.

Thay may be able to suggest some other solution also.

Lexmark does not have Vista drivers for that printer.
