Go to your control Panel and double click on printers and open it. It should say "Lexmark 1200 series". Below this it should say "Ready". If it does'nt say Ready, rightclick the printer and click on Use online or offline. If you see "Lexmark 120 series copy 1, delete the copy and you should be ok. Also, make sure the lexmark is the dedicated printer.

I have a lexmark x1240 and just installed a new cartridge. I keep getting an error message that says " print cartridge missing" install print cartridge even though both cartridges are in the printer.

If you insert the old cartridge, does it recognize it? If it does, then it's a problem with the new cartridge. Try to check if you already have taken out the protective tapes out of the cartridge.

If it still doesn't recognize the old cartridge, then it's a problem with the printer.

Lexmark X1240: tried to uninstall and reinstall

Please make sure that the printer is actually VISTA compatible (it should say it on the box) If it is compatible then there is a good chance that the drivers need to be updated. (even if you just bought it) Your first option would be to download the driver directly from (forget the CD that came with it) Your other option is to download the drivers for LEXMARK X1250 (I have tried this many times with other printers and they worked just fine) I have also used these two web sites to download the drivers for other printers and it seems to work ok so far. Here are the links to the X1250 ...Best of luck to you, I hope I was able to help.
