Do you have more than one instance of the printer installed. If that happens the computer gets confused and don't know which one to print to. Also only one can be active if you have two instances of the same printer and you could be printing to the inactive one. Click Start/Control Panel and check your printers to insure that there is not more than one instance of the same printer installed.
Also check down at the bottom right near the time and if you see the printer icon open it and clear out the queue. If you've printed to an inactive printer the queue will block you so just delete or cancel the items in the queue.
Also check your printer properties to make sure it is printing to a TCPIP wireless connection and not a usb connection.
Try to re-insert the color cartridge into the printer and make sure it is properly seated in the cartridge carrier.
If that doesn't help, try to clean the print nozzles. Please follow the steps below:
1. Press Copy.
2. Press Options until Maintenance appears on the display.
3. Press the right arrow until Clean Cartridges appears on the display.
4. Press Select. A nozzle page prints, forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the clogged nozzles.
5. Print your document again to verify that your print quality has improved.
All you need to do is to remove the printer currently added on your daughter's laptop(most likely it is the printer installed on your laptop)and then add the lexmark printer manually on your daughters laptop. Make sure when you do this your laptop is turned off. If this won't work, that means that the laptop of your daughter does not detect the wireless printer.
hope this helps...
In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels. Activate head cleaning before a test is taken . Sometimes it is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the PC command or can be an issue with ink drying orpoor ink cartridge contacts. Sometimes the power supply unit must be checked as a poor SMPS unit can deliver low voltage and cause issues to the printer function. Check all the leads and connections of themother board , the tags to the ink cartridge. Also check the mechanical settings of the ink cartridge , if jammed or tight remove motor and manually free the drive before it is set back.
Most likely this is a print head issue. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. To attempt to resolve it, do the following:
(1) Open the printer
(2) Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.
(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water to thoroughly clean the print head and each ink cartridge.
(4) Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.
(5) Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges
(6) Try to print something now
If that does not work then you have one of two possibilities:
(1) One of the ink cartridges is defective and causing the error
(2) If it's definitely not that, then the print head will need to be replaced.
If there is something wrong with the printer, you should get a error message describing the error.
Does the printer have a blinking orange light after you give the print command? Then there is an error in the printer. If you have documents in the print queue, delete them. Remove the printer cable. Shut the printer down, shut the computer down. Reconnect the cable and turn everything on again. If there is still a problem there might be something wrong with your printer.
If you don't have a blinking light after the print command on the printer, then try changing the printer cable. If not working, try another USB port. If still not working, reinstall the printer.
