    The macbook recognizes the driver box but when it goes to install it doesn't work. The mac even recognizes the 4200 series but I still can't print anything.

    The box said it supported Mac OS X but not the software nor the web site. Does someone know where to download a driver for X4270 for Tiger?

I think the problem is that lexmark never made this printer mac os compatible. I have one and the disk it came with was for windows only, while i have a 3300 series and that came with a disk for both windows and mac.

Sounds like corrupt drivers. Try completely uninstalling all entries and all driver references, even in registry. Try downloading correct driver for your own OS and printer and try reinstalling. Make sure all settings are correct too, such as preferences for printing offline.

My printer status says it is on pause and it won't print. How do I get it off of pause?


I'm assuming that you're using a Mac. Try to uninstall the Lexmark driver first then download an updated driver online: http://bit.ly/McHL54

If it doesn't work, try to reset the printing system:

  1. Open System Preferences and click "Print & Fax". Then click or right-click on the blank space around the list of printers on the left-hand side.

You should see a pop-up menu and the option to "Reset printing system...". Once you select the option, the OS will restore the CUPS printing system back to its original default settings. NOTE: This will, of course, erase all of your print queues.

Then add a print queue manually: http://bit.ly/SxD5Za

Hi there, i have purchased a new MacBook laptop and notice that it does not have a printer driver for for my Lexmark X4270. I have also gone to the Lexmark Web Site and there is also no driver for mac on...


Hello. Unfortunately, the printer is not compatible with Macintosh OS. There are no Lexmark X4270 printer drivers for Macintosh operating system. The printer only works with Microsoft Windows operating system. This may be unacceptable but if you're interested, Lexmark offer customers, who are in a situation like this, a 20% discount on new models in the market. You can contact Lexmark at 1-800-LEXMARK(1-800-539-6275). I'm sorry but I hope I can assist you more on this.

Cannot print from Apple MacBook to Canon MX310


First, check your USB printer connection to your Macbook from your Pixma MX310 printer.

If the USB cable is securely seated, make sure you have installed the updated drivers for your version of Mac OS X. Here is the Link:
Canon Pixma MX 310 Drivers for Mac OS X (v10.6/10.5 and earlier).

If you have already updated your printer drivers to the most current Canon Pixma update for your version of Mac OS X, then click on the Apple menu icon, located in the upper left corner of your screen and select System Preferences.

• From System Preferences, select Print & Fax.
• Within the Print tab, make sure you can see your Canon listed in that window.

If you can, proceed to perform a test print on any document you have on your desktop or folder of choice. If this does not help, from within the Print tab, select the Canon and press the "-" Minus button and remove that printer.
• Once it is removed, now click the "+" button
and re-add your printer.
• Once it has been added, attempt to test print again.

This should help get your printer back to printing again.

Regards,

Follow the instructions below.

Image 4 Select the printer, click Print Using and select your printer from the list. Then click Add to create the printer object. Image 5 Once the printer has been added, close System Preferences.

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


Hi,
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: http://downloads.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/gimp-print/gutenprint-5.2.4-rc1.dmg?use_mirror=superb-west

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!
