    Hi, same problem as frustrated student. I downloaded the drivers for vista, but when i tried to install the new drivers, i was advised to unstall the previous drivers before i could install the new one. Since then, the computer (Acer-Windows Vista Basic) cannot connect to the Lexmark 8300 series printer.



    Please help. This is driving me nuts!



    Thanks,

Hey guys,, Well you can try this and this will help(by all means it should)

METHOD 1
restore your system to a previous date (one before you installed the printer off the xp cd)
Install the driver's using the windows vista drivers..

METHOD 2(RECOMMENDED BUT MORE DIFFICULT)
THE FIRST THING IS TO REMOVE THE OLD DRIVERS

ensure your printer is connected to your computer and the power is on

step 1.) click start / right click computer and select properties
2.) click device manager

or START / Controll panel
Click Classic View the device manager

3.) Click View then show hidden devices

4.) right click on the printer and click uninstall

5.) Unplug your printer usb from your computer

6.) RESTART

7.) INSTALL THE PRINTER WITH THE VISTA DRIVERS YOU DOWNLOADED..

ps REMEMBER NOT TO PLUG IN YOUR PRINTER UNTIL THE SETUP SOFTWARE TELLS YOU TO DO SO

BTW IF YOU CONT HAVE THE VISTA DRIVERS YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THEM FROM THE MANUFACTURES WEB SITE

let me know if you got any problems ..

Once a doc is scanned on a 8300 series all in one, how do I get the scanned image from the printer to a word doc? Looked


You can actually scan directly to an application(ex. MS Word application). Also, make sure the Lexmark OCR scan software is installed on your computer (the software is available on the install disc that came with your printer).
1. Load an original document into the ADF or on the scanner glass. 2. Press Scan Mode. 3. Press ? or ? repeatedly until the MS Word application is highlighted. 4. Press check button. 5. Press Start Color or Start Black to start scanning.

Lexmark X8350 "communication not available"


I fixed this by completely uninstalling the Lexmark software, then unplugging the USB and restarting. I then installed the new Lexmark software that I downloaded from their site, make sure not to plug the USB back in until it told me to. It then detected the printer properly and started working.

I don't have the installation disk to install my Lexmark Z610 Ptr


You should be able to find it in the Lexmark Australia's site. Not exact model but close: Z611.
http://support.lexmark.com/perl/support/support.cgi?ccs=15:1:0:0:0:0

Select Consumer Inkjet Printer, Page 4 and you'll find the Z611, when looking at the drivers they provide, it seems to be for Z600 series.
Good Luck!

How to install lexmark 3500=4500 series printer without setup disk


To all Lexmark owners with the lost disk problem.

If you do not have the disk you must download the software from Internet, follow instructions below,

Click here:Official Lexmark Drivers and Software

A web page will open, follow instructions, select model, select operative system etc., and click on download .
Chose to download the file in my documents when asked.
After downloading, find the file,double click on the file ,then if you get in troubles, follow the instructions below to reset and reinstall drivers:

  • Unplug printer USB.
  • Go to control panel >> installed printers in Windows and remove (delete ) any installed printer from printer list.
  • Download driver from website, or use the disk and run the install file.
  • Follow driver installation wizard.
  • Plug back printer when prompted from installation wizard.
If you instead want to purchase a new disk, bear in mind that Lexmark does not distribute replacement install disk for all models.

Contact Lexmark here, to see if the disk for your printer is available.


Note:some printerdoes not work on Vista, if you do not find any driver download for Vista on your model page, that means your model is not Vista compatible.

Couldn't install lexmark 8300 printer software on my window vista driver computer


Follow this link to the official Lexmark website and download the driver.
http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi

If you can't follow that link, go to www.lexmark.com. On the top menu, there is a link called "Drivers and Downloads". Click it and select your series, then your OS system, and there you go.

The drivers for Vista are finally updated.

I had the same problem for about a year... now it works fine.
