Printer now working

The Lexmark Z715 ink-jet printer that I used with my late e-machine computer doesn't seem to want to work with my Apple (Mac) computer.  Can I get help with downloading the printer onto my Mac so I won't have to replace my present printer?

Re: Printer now working

Should work, try to print and you should get the print window (press the apple key and P together works) the top line is also the printer select feature, click the blue box to the right with 2 little up and down arrows and you should get an add printer button, follow instructions , if it cant see the printer (make sure it is connected and on) look on the laxmark site for a driver (there is an option when installing the os to not install all the drivers that apple inlclude)

I have a lexmark z715 printer connected to windows xp. recently it stopped printing. the paper moves and the machine makes sounds similar to printing, but it doesn't print. i think the sound is s

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Trouble getting printer to print for first time after downloading the driver from the internet. Mac OS 10.4

Try to delete the Lexmark Z715 print object from the Print and Fax on your Mac 10.4. Then, add a new Lexmark print object. After successfully adding a print job, try to print a document again to verify that printing is working properly now.

I installed the Lexmark z715 printer driver on my Mac and it is connected fine, but when you attempt to print documents, it prints blank pages instead. The ink cartridges are brand new. Please help me...

Ok, you need to clean the print heads they are probally clogged, what operating system are you using on your computer? I can walk you thru on what to do, very simple, if you have windows xp, do this: Go to start then all programs then go to your printer, there should be an option to align paper, clean print heads, print test page, you need to pick clean print heads, then after that print a test page, then if you see something printed but not good qaulity, clean print heads again....if this doesn't work you can take a damp cloth and wet and wipe under the ink cartilige where the ink comes out but is dried and clogged up until you see a rainbow streak of red, blue and yellow, be carefully not to wet any other part of cartirige, you can use a moist q tip if you want.

I have ink left in cartriges and the printer makes all the noise of printing but prints nothing. Paper comes out blank i just got the ink filled and trying to print out didn't work

It sounds to me like you don't replace the cartridges, but have the ink refilled in the cartridges? This can only be done so many times until the cartridge jets become plugged and therefore can no longer print. You can try appling alcohol to a q-tip and cleaning the cartridge's jets where the ink comes out, but most likely, you will need to purchase new cartridges and start over.

Blank paper

That is the most likely cause.
Also under the cartridges, there are some ports and pads that may have dried out. In that case unplug the machine, and remove the cartridges, trickle some alcohol slowly to dissolve the sticky ink in that area. Place some paper towels under the print head area as you trickle in the alcoholl and allow it to drip into those towels. Then allow some time to dry.
The cartridges and those port areas can dry out or become very tacky.
