Question about Lexmark Z53 Color InkJet Printer

1 Answer


I received my complete computer from a friend and when i received it the printer worked fine. A few weeks ago i got internet service and it would not print pages from the internet.


So i tried to fix myself and ending up making it worse, i think i changed the port and then i may have changed the usb i am not sure but now it will not work at all.


The printer did print from word but now it does not print from anything and i don't know what to do. can someone please help me.

O.K. first go to




do you see your printer there? is it highlighted? does it have a checkmark?

if it's not there then you have to install it in Printers and faxes add a printer.

If if not highlighted then right click on it and "set as default"

then place your mmose over it and see if it says "ready" or offline

if  it's offline then the connection is wrong, leave mouse over printer and change connection it should change to 'ready"

Check on your color (not mono) ink levels. If they are low, this could cause this.

Technical info: On this printer, envelope text is printed in "composite black" which means we mix the colored inks to make black. This is done for envelopes and not letters because of the ink properties which resist water and smear. If one of the colors is low, you'll get something other than black.

Cleaned up computer and can not find the disk to my lexmark Z53 to reinstall.

To download the driver directly from Lexmark's web site, go here:

Search for your printer model (Z53), select your operating system, select your language, then download the driver. After it downloads,double-click the file to launch it and follow the instructions on yourscreen.

Lexmark Z53 prints photos on 'normal' but enlongates image on 'best'

I'm getting around the problem by using Windows or Nero print options to get the photo as near to the size I need. It would be good if I could print photo's from Photo studio though much simpler and less time consuming.

No, the Z53 is an old printer and Lexmark has not created Vista drivers for it. You might look at the Lexmark Z1300 which you can get for about $30.
