Question about Lexmark X4875 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Cannot print with Lexmark x4875, Windows Vista OS.

I bought a Lexmark x4875 multi-function printer a few months ago. It prints for awhile, then stop working; no error message. I have Windows Vista OS. It is connected via a USB cable to one of the USB ports on the front of my computer. After I install the printer, I can print for a few days. Then documents do not print - from any source. Once I uninstall and re-install from the CD, I can print again....for awhile. Then it stops working again. No error message. I'm wondering if it's because I used the scanning tool, i.e maybe the printer gets stuck after that. I checked the printer control panel and the printer status is listed as 'Ready'. All documents I attempted to print (that did not print) are listed in the print queue.

You need to cancel all print jobs for a printer, you must have permission to manage documents on the printer.

1. Open printers by clicking the "Start" button , clicking "Control Panel," clicking "Hardware and Sound," and then clicking "Printers."

2. To open the print queue, double-click the printer you are using.

3. Click the "Printer" menu, and then click "Cancel All Documents." Depending on the printer, the item currently printing might finish, but the remaining items will be cancelled.

Next, 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 4800 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.

Tip

I need Postscript drivers for Lexmark printer T630.


Hi.

This printer supports Postscript, PPDS, and PDF emulation only on systems up to Windows 2000, on Mac OS X up to 10.6, and on Solaris.
Windows 7and Vista are not fully compatible with this printer, and the printer will not have full functionalities on this systems.

If you have Win XP, Win dows Server 2003, Win 98, Win 2000 or Mac OS, then all you have got to do is installing full factory driver software.

If you have Windows 7 or Vista, then you should upgrade the printer to get full features. Lexmark has opted for not updating this printer software. Full software release for Windows Vista and Windows 7 does not exist.

The drivers and software for this printer can be downloaded from Lexmark website, using the links below:

Lexmark_AAG_WinXP_PS_Driver- Post script driver.

System PCL Driver for Microsoft Windows XP and Server 2003

System PCL Driver for Microsoft Windows 2000.

PCL6 driver for Microsoft Windows 95, 98 and Me.

Printing solution for Mac OS X v.10.6.

Print driver for Sun Solaris 10 x86 systems.

Network print support for Linux.

Here the full driver installation procedure : How to install a Lexmark printer without the driver and software disk.

The printer may still work on Vista and Windows 7 using the built in drivers, but it will have limited functionality. See: Windows 7 Information.

Regards.

Running Leopard Snow OS 10.6.7 and Lexmark X4875 wireless printer. I can print but cannot open Lexmark work center (for scan etc).


You can download the Lexmark 4800 Series driver from the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/hjWPTi. However, for the Lexmark OCR scan software, that can only be installed using the install disc that came with your printer. If you lost the disc, please contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.

I lost installation CD so how do I print from my laptop to lexmark x4875 using WiFi?


This is how you can install a printer to be a network printer. Depending on your version of windows determines how your network will work, but for the most part, as long as you have this printer connected to a Windows PC you should be able to set it up to print wirelessly this way.

Lexmark x73mfp scanner to windows vista


You can use the Lexmark z42 drivers that come with Vista to make it print but I doubt you could get it to scan. New MFP are a dime a dozen these days so it may be time to upgrade.
