Question about Lexmark Color Z45 InkJet

1 Answer

Uh duh I have a lexmark z45 inkjet, but have no cord. I am not computer savvy and I do not recognize the port. It is not ethernet, USB, or phone cord. I also don't see a port in the back of my computer that resembles the one on the printer. What kind of cord does it require? I have a Dell 2000; is the port there and I just can't find it?

    I recently changed the printer cartridges. Now, the power light continues to flash, and the message is that it cannot communicate.

    I have checked power and cables, and all are connected o.k.

    Any help?

I'm pretty sure that it would be a standard USB cable. The end that goes into the printer would look like a square with the top two corners cut out. The other end is a standard USB connection that plugs into your computer. You should be able to find one of these at any office supply store or Wal-Mart, K-Mart, or Target.

The port to which the printer is connected is not supported. Check the port


I'm assuming you are using a USB connection, not a Ethernet connection.

Try a different USB port (preferably in the REAR of the computer, not the front). It's not unusual to have 1 or 2 poorly-performing (low power) ports on a PC; some printers don't like those.

If you have a really old computer, it may have ancient USB type "1" (slow) ports instead of the newer 2.0 or 3.0 USB type. Some printers don't like old USB 1 ports, but it is not supposed to matter.

If all else fails, try another USB cord, or a shorter one. Some printers don't work well with cords longer than 4 feet, and USB cords can go bad.

Or, try the printer on another computer. If the same USB cord works fine there, YOUR computer has the problem (probably a USB port or USB driver issue).

Are you having issues with other USB devices? If so, it may be a Windows driver issue.

Good luck. If no help, post your exact printer model # here, or try contacting Lexmark.com support

My computer doesn't recognize my printer


It's possible that the problem is with the USB port on the printer. If you have a router, you can try to connect your printer using an ethernet cable so you won't have to configure your printer using a USB cable.

Once you have connected the printer using an ethernet cable, proceed with the installation in your computer and choose ethernet as the connection type. It should automatically find the printer on your network.
