Files wont print

Hi

I run an iMac OS9.2.2. I have a Lexmark X5150 all in one printer which works fine when I send files to print from my Sony Vaio laptop, so there is nothing wrong with the printer itself.

When I send files to print from my Mac nothing happens at all. There is never a desktop printer icon on my desktop which I think may be the problem. I have tried uninstalling the software but it wont allow me to as I can't access a print queue to delete before uninstalling. How can I get around this problem? I have tried installing over existing files but still there is no desktop icon. I have downloaded the correct printer driver and that hasn't helped either. There is no reference to the Lexmark 5150 in the printer descriptions list in the extensions folder either.
The printer shows up in the chooser and when I select it an icon should appear on the desktop but doesn't.
Have you any ideas what I can try next. Thankyou. Dave

I have two computers on my network, an iMac and a PC running Windoew 7. I recently purchased the Lexmark Pro901 and installed it on the network. It(the Lexmark Pro901) seems to connect fine to the network...


It could be a software issue. Try to uninstall the existing Lexmark Pro901 driver from your desktop pc by going to Start menu -> Programs -> Lexmark -> Pro900 Series -> Uninstall Lexmark Pro900 Series. Reboot pc when prompted.
Now, check your Windows 7 if it's running on 32-bit or 64-bit by going to the Start menu -> right-click on Computer -> Properties. Take note of the System Type.
To reinstall, download the Lexmark Pro900 Series driver using the links below: - Lexmark Pro901 driver for Windows 7 32-bit - Lexmark Pro901 driver for Windows 7 64-bit
Download, execute the file and follow the instructions on the software.
I hope this information has been helpful. Thanks.

Hello here! i have tried to install my lexmark x5150 to my compacq laptop, and cant get it to print, i have installed the disc countless times wiyh out any progress can you help?


Try this:
first uninstall the disc's software
than restart the laptop
if correct it will automaticly detect your printer and ask for the disk.
cancel the installation.
Insert the disk and cancel the automatic running program for installation.
go to start, printers, add new printer and follow the steps from there untill it says "have disk" click on have disc and brose to your CD drive. It will automatically indicate which program it requires, search on the disc that program and click OK and continue the steps.

Reason: automatic installations from manufacturers sometimes do not install all files needed by windows, installing via windows itself it will automaticcaly pick the correct files from the disc.

JT, install the scanner unit via windows as a new scanner (start, printers and scanners, new device) and browse to the unzipped files when windows asks for installation files, this should make the scanner part work.

File for X5150


It is the setup installation file or an auto-extracting compressed set of files. You can choose to save the file and not run it so that it may be transferred to the other PC.

Lexmark AIO X5150 printer powers off just before printing


Hi, I would suggest you update your printer driver, try this, follow instructions exactly as written, do not use installation cd:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop(watch for the light yellow bar at the top of window viewing pane, click on this and choose – download file - . Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done.
