    I bought this computer last march and it has never worked. I can't print. It will go through the motions of printing but the paper is blank. It is a x4270. I can't print letters I type. I can't print from email. Please help? I plan to take a whole day if necessary to get this printer to work. I haven't been able to do anything on it since I've had it. It is supposed to print, fax and scan.

    had same problem. Error 1200.

    had to pry ink cartridge over to center (not by ribbon) The black ink cartridge had the lid come off of it and it was preventing it from sliding. Put new cartridge in, works fine.

Tried what blkghost suggested above but had to tweak his advice slightly.

Turn off power to the printer and unplug it from the back of the printer.

Insert the power cord back into the printer. You will hear some clicks and motors moving. Pull out the cord again when this happens.

Open the cartridge bay by pulling the face forward and lifting the bay door up. The cartridge carousel most likely will not come to the center.

trying physically pulling the carousel to the middle. (NOT BY THE RIBBON CABLE) If you can not pull it to the middle push it far right as possible. Listen for a click.

After pushing to the right and hearing a click you should then be able to pull the carousel towards the middle easily. Remove the ink cartridges and power up the printer again.

You will receive an error along the lines of black cartridge missing. Open the bay, insert the cartridges, close the bay.

YAY problem fixed.

I have installed the lexmark 4200 program and am trying to get to the fax set up page. I have went ot start, programs but dont see lexmark 4200 series

Computer has to do nothing with fax setup.

Inbound and outbound fax happen through the lexmark device without the help of computer. Computer use the device for the printing purpose only.

All fax related configuration has to be done on the lexmark through the help of its display screen and buttons

Lexmark x4270??

This is Lexmark's own site, the printer is listed here. If you were looking in another location, then search for the print drivers for the Lexmark 4200 series which is the same series as the x4270

X4270 all in one printer driver needed for a new Mac notebook

You CAN you your X4270 with your mac, its just a bit of work.
You may need to download the gutenprint/gimp drivers and install them. Which you can find at this link:

Once these are installed, do the following:
Before attempting this, ensure that your X4270 is plugged into your Mac and powered on.
1: Open "System Preferences" under the Apple menu in the upper left corner.
2: Click on "Print & Fax"
3: Click the "+" to add a printer
4: "Lexmark 4200 Series" should show up under the default tad of add printer, select it by single clicking.
5: If you wish you can change the name and give a location below
6: Where it says "Print using:", select: "Select a driver to use" This will bring up a list of printers
7: Search or scroll until you find "Lexmark Z43-CUPS+GutenPrint", select this by single clicking.
8: Press the "Add" button at the bottom and you should be done, if may ask you to step through a few more things, but it will be trivial.

Please note that this is not a perfect solution. I seem to have to print one page at a time, which is a pain, but at least I didn't have to buy a new printer. This could be a problem with my printer only, or it might just be a setting that I haven't found yet, so look around see if you can find it.

Also, you will not be able to use the scanner on your mac as far as I can tell, and I don't remember if the copy/fax works.

Good luck!

Cant print from new computer

Look in "control panel"(listed in "start") and double click on printers and faxes, if your printer isn't listed, you need to install the disc your printer came with, and may need to goto for driver updates.
