Question about Lexmark X4270 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Hi, I just purchased a Lexmark X4850 printer which has wireless capability and I am having trouble getting the computer to print. I have a AT&T wireless modem/router that can also have up to 4 computers plugged in directly to the modem/router. I set up the printer and plugged it into my desktop using a usb cord. It said it was fine & printed a test sheet ok. I then ran the installation disc to set the printer up for wireless operation so that my daughter could also use the printer using the wireless feature. But now I can't get the printer to print anything from my desktop? I called Lexmark tech support and was told I can't have it both ways. Either I use the printer only with my printer(using the usb cable), or remove the usb cable & get a wireless pci card for my desktop. I wanted to be able to use the printer for my desktop, as well as my daugter's laptop, which has wireless capability. Any suggestions?
I have a Lexmark X4850, every time I print a job it prints a blank page first then the document. I have tried to tell it to print 1-1 or 1-3 but it continues to print that blank page first. any suggestions.

I Have had issues many different ones similar to lots explained , lexmarks customer service on there website has been a life savor on many occasions, sometimes its as simple as resting the router,. other times documents pending get locked in and its a matter of clearing out the print jobs and re sending them. in some cases its a matter of my windows,. fire wall , or the 64 bit quad core possessor im using, or an issue with my cloud print service that lets me print via my android,. in any case a simple link from there website under support and help selecting the make of your printer,. and on the left side of the window is a spot for live chat help,. i work 3rd shift,. and there hasn't been a time in the day that i have been unable to get assistance, in one case too they sent me a whole new insulation disk, with all the latest updates on software including fax setup and excreta, and was able to send me the proper insulation via remote access, one time i even had an issue with a recently perched printer cartage, i had just bought at staples, rather then having me return it, they shipped me two free inks!!! that seemed to have lasted even longer then what i was buying in store

My X4850 prints fine but each time I print a document I get a pop up box on the computer screen asking if I want to participate in the connect program, even though I check the no box it continues to come back every time I print. Please tell how to get rid of this annoying box forever.

Had a similar problem with my router, which was a 2WIRE router
(furnished by AT&T - I have Uverse). Fixed it by going to the
router's GUI (mine is 192.168.1.254), click on "View the home network".
On the right side of the resulting screen, there is a section titled
"wireless settings". Under that, click on "edit settings". Enter the
login information (the default password is on a tag on the router). The
next screen is "Configure the Wireless Network". Scroll down to the
bottom and click on "Rescan". When I did this, my X4850 miraculously
connected and started working.

Ok, the best way and easiest is to plug your printer whit the usb cable. Seeing that u have a home network, at ur place share ur printer over the network, and your daughter can use wireless to connect to the network and print over your desktop pc.

Printing: since Lexmark say you can either connect wirelessly or wired and not both, you must either connect your daughter's machine to the hub by wire or yourself to the printer wirelessly.
Fax: this will need a phone line.

Tips for a great answer:
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. 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. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the
If that doesn't help, try the steps below:
1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.
2. Re-brick your printer.
Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the
back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.
2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers
3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
4. Reboot your pc.
5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.
6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB
connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a
new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print a document again to
verify that the problem is fixed.
You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/lY7NTO. Select your operating system, download and execute the file. After the install process, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
