Re: lexmark X6170

IB4G2008 is right, you need to post more info so anyone can help. Operating system, drive space, memory, and driver you are using all play a part in whether it will install or not. Has it worked before or is this the first time you are using this printer. Please post back so we can all help xxx lilacgerry

Lexmark X6170 doesn't seem to work with Apple ibook G4

I've enjoyed using a Lexmark printer with my Macs (a G4/PowerBookand
iMac Indigo, both running OS X 10.2.3), so when I needed an all-in-one
for my hobby shop, I bought a Lexmark X6170. Looks like a great unit,
but unfortunately, I cannot find any Macintosh drivers or downloads
for it on Lexmark's site. I contacted Lexmark's Customer Support, and
received the following unhelpful replies from India:

"Please accept my heartfelt apologies for the problems you are
experiencing with your Lexmark product. But Lexmark X6150/6170 do not
support MAC."

"To the best of my knowledge, there are currently no plans to develop
Mac drivers to support this model. Thank you for notifying us of this
request. I will forward your comments on to our development
department, as it is only through input from you, our customers, that
we can make these important business decisions."

I'm hoping forum members can help me out with some kind of
work-around, as it seems (to my naive mind, anyway) that the elements
to make this unit work with my Macs are available; they just need to
be gathered together. Here's my reasoning -- please tell me where/if
I'm wrong:

First, I'm assuming that it's very likely there's a printer driver for
the printer section of the X6170; since most Lexmark printers are
supported on the Mac (like my Lexmark Z22), there must be a driver for
one of Lexmark's many Mac-supported printers that would work with the

Second, the scanner is a USB input device, so the interfaceis no
problem. I'm assuming that, like most modern scanners, the one in the
X6170 is TWAIN-compliant, so it should work directly in Photoshop, or
with a TWAIN-compliant third-party scanning app like SilverFast.

The copier and fax functions of the X6170 are, of
course,stand-alone,so there's no problem there.

I really don't want to give up on the Lexmark X6170 (especially since
the original packaging got thrown away!). Please help me explore some
"out of the box" solutions to mating my Macs with the X6170.

You will need to go on-line and find the Windows Vista download for the drivers and software for the item you are installing. After installing; re-start computer and see if printer prints.

Try running an alignment, also try turning unit off and unplugging it to reset it. If no go, try cleaning to roller and the coating the carriage runs on. Then as last resort, try uninstalling it from pc if it is attached and reinstall. Post back, i would love to see it fixed. lilacgerry xxx
