Lexmark c510 re-installation problem



I have moved my office printer (Lexmark c510 / connected via internal network to my laptop) to my home office ( direct connection between the printer and the same laptop). Now once turing the  power on and connecting the laptop the printer shows in its display  "Invalid Engine Code" that stays on the display. Does not react to any buttons.. Drivers are reloaded into the laptop and the pc identifies the printer but the printer is constantly in the "invalid Engin..." mode. How to get the printer working again ??


Thank you,

Lexmark C510 printer doesn't print yellow color.

Try the old one again. If this works you have a defective new catridge. This sometimes happens.

Cant connect lexmark X3550 to laptop wirelessly..

If you are trying to connect to a network printer you need to install a network printer NOT a PC install. You would have to browse for the "Remote" printer, from the CLIENT. The printer that is on the "Master" PC will have to have the printer already installed and "shared" as well, FIRST. Then you go to the remote and install a NETWORKED printer....find it on the network, and connect, it will actually get the drivers from the "Master" PC, see. Plus BOTH PC's will have to have a name password & and be on the same "Workgroup" as well. If you want to enable documents to be exchanged to print between PC's you will have to enable "Sharing" on each, Drive, or Folders as well, if you wish.

The printer drivers must be installed on each computer. If computer A runs XP, you must install driver for XP on computert A; If machine B runs Vista, then you must install printer drivers for Vista on machine B.

Hope it helps.

If the printer itself is wireless, it does not need to recognize your wireless computer network. Call Lexmark to walk you through proper installation. Lexmark's manuals are not adequate regarding setup, in my opinion.

How to wirelessly access HP Laserjet 1320n via Apple iBook

You need to disconnect the USB cable and set it up wireless on both units:
Since it is plugged into the router, it should already have an IP address.
Un-install the printer from the computers.
Then re-install the printer from the cd or from HP's website. When you get to the point where it ask you is the printer is attached to the computer or is it over the network. Choose over the net work and the software will find the printer IP and finish setting it up wireless.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Cannot connect wireless

I'm not sure how you have it set up right now, but if you have the printer set to "shared", then you can connect to the computer that's connected to it from another wireless device and double-click on the printer. It will let you install the driver for it and add it to your Printers list as an available printer. Then when you print you just select that printer and Windows should take care of it. If you have already tried this please post back with some more information as to the process you have followed and where it errored out.

Lexmark C510 Laser Printer- Grinding Sound on startup and while printing

Thank you Krissy! I had the same problem with the horrible grinding noise.

I took out all of the toners and the photo developer and noticed that my Blue toner was leaking all over. After reading your post, I tried replacing the toner. It worked!!! No more noise - and no more mess!
