Question about Lexmark Z816 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Cannot print using Lexmark Z816

Hi, I've used my printer Z816 with Windows Xp and worked fine. After I bought a new computer with Windows Vista, it didn't work anymore. I've emailed lexmark and they've provided a site where I've downloaded the driver ( for Windows Vista. But the printer doesn't print. I see it in the printers list but cannot print even a test page. I've tried restarting the PC, plugging unplugging printer cables, but didn't help. Thanks, Monica

    If you are trying to get an answer for your problems, do not expect it to come from this site. After waiting and waiting and waiting for a response, I contacted the manufacturer directly (Lexmark) and now I can use my printer.

I bought a new computer with Windows Vista. I have a Lexmark x73 printer that was used with my old computer with Windows XP. I bought a USB port and my printer still doesn't work. I need help with this.

Not finding a Vista driver to be available from Lexmark x73. They only show the XP driver. You can get this driver free here:

One, try installing printer without the XP driver. Lexmark may have provided a quailifying driver with Vista hardware setup wizard. If it does not work or wizard cannot locate a driver, try the XP driver.

Beyond this, you may have to talk to tech support at Lexmark or repost here for another expert.

Couldn't install lexmark 8300 printer software on my window vista driver computer

Follow this link to the official Lexmark website and download the driver.

If you can't follow that link, go to On the top menu, there is a link called "Drivers and Downloads". Click it and select your series, then your OS system, and there you go.

The drivers for Vista are finally updated.

I had the same problem for about a year... now it works fine.
