Question about Lexmark Office Equipment & Supplies

Lexmark 730 not printing

New (to me) OS: Windows 7, 64 bit Uninstalled all old printer drivers Unplugged printer from both wall & USB port Downloaded correct driver from Lexmark (with some help from tech support--so pretty sure it's the correct one) and connected up printer when so instructed Changed printer cartridge--and checked with damp towel trick to make sure it had plenty of ink, not dried out, and surfaces clean. Printer cartridge goes back and forth as if printing (for test page), but paper comes out blank. Printer did print off of old OS as recently as 10 days ago, although the cartridge was getting low on ink--hence the change of cartridge. Did try putting in old cartridge, but still blank paper.

Regarding the Lex1 cartridge's no printing/severe fade (or similar) during printing, my answers are provided below:

For the poor print quality problem (degraded image quality) you are observing, we suggest you first visit the "Print Quality" page of the "General Information" section of the Inkjet 411 website and follow the suggestions provided: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1432

A. 1. Cartridge & Printer maintenance should also be evaluated - ensure both ink cartridges and flexible driver contact cables (where the cartridge interfaces to the carriage inside the printer) are thoroughly clean: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

A.2. Perform a hot-water flush on the suspect ink cartridge, refer to video procedure here: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

A.3. Run a quick test print to evaluate cartridge performance (i.e. 4-color test print):

SOURCE: Changed ink cartrigde and printer no longer printing.

microsoft logo is in colour and so its printing while everything else on test page is black so its not printing. the problem is common.you need to do automatic deep cleaning for the ink flow to start once you install new cartridges.go to printer maintanance option and click the option deep cleaning .it will pull out the ink in printer head and it will start working.sometimes also requires cleaning twice. thanks and do not forget to accept the solution.

SOURCE: Lexmark 2470 only prints 1 page out of 10 pages!!!!

You may have to change the communication format called the "Spool format."

Please follow the steps given below to change the spool data format:
1. Click on "Start," "Control Panel," "Hardware and Sound" and "Printers."
2. Then, right click on the Lexmark printer icon and left click "Properties."
3. Either on the "Advanced" tab or the "General" tab for some models, there is a "Print Processor" button, left click it.
4. This is the spool format setting. Under "Print processor" it should be set to "Lexmark 2400 series print processor." Next, under "Default datatype," select "NT EMF 1.008."
5. Click "OK" and exit back out to your desktop.
6. Please try printing again.
If this does not help the situation, please describe any differences it does make.

SOURCE: BJC-85 Not printing. New BC-10 and BCI-10. Paper loads normally

The problem you are having is with the print head and not the printer. Unfortunately, with these canon print heads, they are not dated, so it is possible to install a print head that was bought new and sealed, but is still dried out because it is old.

Try running the print head through one deep cleaning cycle, this sometimes will start to get an old print head flowing.

Deep cleaning cycle can be found by going to PRINTERS , right clicking on the BJC icon, selecting PROPERTIES from the drop down menu, and then selecting the MAINTAINENCE tab.

Check to make sure that the ink tank in the print head isn't dry. Even a new print head can have a dry tank if it's old.

My Lexmark e332n shows error code 43 ,what does it mean?


G'Day Mate,
Are you running the Lexmark driver for Windows 7 64 bit.
Try down loading the driver and installing it on your p.c.
Suspect USB driver for printer is missing - Windows can't detect it as it doesn't recognise it. By installing the Lexmark driver it updates windows to recognise the lexmark printer usb interface.
you will find driver here

Just got a new HP with Windows 7 Home Premium and a new Lexmark x4650. Printer only works intermittently. Have installed and uninstalled the drivers more times than I care to remember...at least 5 times....


This could be a driver issue. Try to uninstall the driver this way, refer to this article: How to Uninstall Lexmark Printers. Reboot pc when prompted. When your computer turns on, check if your Windows 7 is running on 32-bit or 64-bit System Type. Go to Start menu -> right-click on Computer -> Properties. Take note of the System Type.
Download and re-install the driver using the links below: - Lexmark X4650 driver for Windows 7 32-bit - Lexmark X4650 driver for Windows 7 64-bit
Execute the file and follow the instructions on your computer screen.

Is there any way to get Lexmark z600 working on win7? OS recognizes the printer but when one actually tries to print the printer goes offline. Are there any suitable drivers for my OS or I'll just have to...


There is no Lexmark Z600 driver specific for Windows 7, however, the Vista driver works. Check if your Windows 7 is running on 32-bit or 64-bit operating system by going to the Start menu > right click on Computer > Properties. Download the driver using this link: http://bit.ly/cd4MzI(for 32-bit) or this link: http://bit.ly/c4xCtN(for 64-bit). Execute the file to install the driver. If you need further assistance, you can also contact Lexmark technical support. Thank you for choosing Lexmark.

Dell 924 printer won't work on vista OS


First, here is a link to the vista 32 bit drivers. Install these drivers if you have not installed them before.

Second, if you are using Vista 64 bit, Dell does not make a driver for the 64 bit O/S. You can re-install your Vista to 32 bit or buy a printer that is compatible with 64 bit O/S

Incorrect Port Detected


According to Features and Specs on Lexmarks website, this is a All in One? i.e Fax, Printer, Scan & Copy? also it's a Network type?

If so have you chosen the correct settings via the Printers Dispay and Control Panel? ...... I assume you have and everythinh in Device manager looks good, i.e no Yellow and or Red Icons over anything listed there, especially USB....correct?

If your Vista is the 32 Bit then the driver file should be: cjb5000enOSS.exe (87.7MB)
If Windows Vista x63 then it will be: cjq5000enOSS.exe (132.76MB)

Hope the above helped,

cheers,

Bastian

My printer is not printing Lexmark 5400 series


DO NOT use the Windows 7 Lexmark Driver for the 5400 series on the model X5470 all-in-one! I just assembled a new Win 7 computer and could not get the obvious Win7 64 bit driver to work. I called Lexmark tech support several times, and the third time they conceded that you can't use it. You have to use THIS ONE!
CJS5400en.exe (just for the X5400). Make sure you UNINSTALL COMPLETELY any previous Lexmark printer driver and check the hard drive for any vestiges of previous installations BEFORE installing the new driver...and do NOT use the 'cleaning utility' file that is on the Lexmark site for Win 7 - to clean all bits of former installations first...According to tech support, it doesn't work on Win 7!! I told the tech person that the driver site needs to be more specific on which models use which drivers...he agreed.
