Maybe you didn't configure the port.

To do this you must go to properties of the printer then try to locate the port output. LPT1, LPT2... the default value is LPT1.

    Click Start -> Control Panel -> Click Printers and Hardware then click printers. U will see the installed printer then right click, choose properties then you will see the information of your printer then check the preferences of that then check if it is settled to port LPT1 and that is the default value if you installed a printer. U can also use the other ports but there is many configuration to do. I hope that I solved your problems.

First make certain a USB cable is attached to your printer and to your USB. The windows install device will tell you it has located new equipment and ask if you want Windows to install it. If you didn't go through this before, allow Windows to install it. Use the disk that came with the printer if you have it. (Make sure the drivers on the disk will run on Vista. The disk should tell you. Lexmark 7100 series was introduced a ways back).

If you've gone through this, and you know it is installed correctly, with the proper drivers, go to "Control Panel". Choose Device manager, and click open "Ports (Com &LPT).

Choose Communications Port (Com 1). Opening that will give you the Properties page. Click Resources at the top of the page. About halfway down the page will be a small box that says "Use Automatic Settings". Make sure this is clicked. It gives Window permission to find and use the best generic drivers for your printer, among other things.

At the bottom should be another box entitled Conclicting Device List.
It should say in the box "No Conflicts." Click OK to exit that box if all is well. Next, go back to Control Panel again. Look for and choose "Printers". Among other selections, you should see an icon of a printer that says Lexmark 7100 series. That should have a big green checkmark by it in a circle. If it doesn't, click on the icon and a small box will open in the upper left hand corner.

It should say "Lexmark 7100 Series". If it does, click on Printer, then click add as default printer. Then when you close the box you shouls see the icon marked Lexmark 7100 series, with the green checkmark inside a circle.

If you don't see all these things wirite back and we will take the next step.

It could be a faulty cartridge. Have you already tried inserting a different known working cartridge? If error continues to pop-up even with a different new or a known working cartridge, then it could be a hardware problem.

Some older print cartridges are not compatible even if your model is listed on label. I'm talking a few years difference. The printer knows this and that is what the error is telling you. Make sure you have the right number in the right slot.

Right cartridge incorrect


This solution (RESET the BRICK - solution 1 above) worked for me!

I had a brand new out of the box Lexmark X4580 and after one or two prints I was suddenly getting a "Left Cartridge Incorrect" error showing on the Printer Control Panel and the printer would now all me to print anything.

After about an hour of trying this and that (cartridges in, out and shalen all about!) ; no avail, I tried this and hey presto, it worked.

When I removed the "Brick" power supply I left it until the Green LED had faded right out though, I dont know if that was significant or not. Fingers crossed all is sorted now!
