Re: Lexmark 642 printer on network will not print to tray...

I have found that if the print job needs a certain paper size and the tray is reporting a different size loaded into it then the job will pull from the next tray with an acceptable size. Lexmark's paper stops in the trays are easily moved by the wieght of paper loaded in it. If the job requires "Letter" checnk the size tabs on the left side of the tray, they are on the outside of the tray. For "Letter" just the buttom 2 tabs should be sticking out, adjust the green back stop until just the bottom 2 tabs are sticking out and try your print job again.

Lexmark T644 Drawer 2 Missing error message but drawer 2 is in place. Drawer 2 always has problems pulling form form drawer when printing from drawer 2.

If job prints from the wrong tray or on the wrong paper or specialty media, this is an indication that the operator panel menu settings do not match the media loaded in the tray.

Make sure the Paper Size and Paper Type specified in the printer driver match the paper size and type in the tray.

Why isn't my lexmark x6570 printing in color even though there's still color ink in the cartridge?

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in 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 thanreplace the print head.

I have a Lexmark X364DN and would like to change the default paper tray for incoming faxes.

Hi there,
1- Go to Fax Settings menu
2- Under Fax settings menu, look for Fax Receive Settings
3- Under Fax Fax Receive Settings, look for Paper Source
4- Under Paper Source You should find three options: Auto (default), tray <x> (the tray number you want it to print from), or manual feed.
Change according to your preference.
Hope it helps!

Try to print the wireless network settings page on your Lexmark X4650 to determine if your printer is still registered in your wireless network. 1. Press Setup (pattlnk_632008_2048-x4650stup.jpg) on the printer operator panel. 2. Press the right or left arrow button until Network Setup is displayed, and then press(pattlnk_632008_2052-x4650ok.jpg). 3. Press pattlnk_632008_2052-x4650ok.jpg at Print Setup Page. 4. Press pattlnk_632008_2052-x4650ok.jpg when prompted to Load Paper. 5. Press pattlnk_632008_2052-x4650ok.jpg. The network settings page will now print.
Check the IP Address and the SSID (network name).
A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Frequently, issues are caused simply by a break in the signal sent from PC to printer or vice versa. Unplugging and re-plugging the printer allows the small amount of on-board memory on the printer to be cleared, with the result that the PC recognizes the machine properly. Programs continuing to run in the background of the operating system (OS) can cause the signal to be lost. Rebooting the PC ends all programs that may be running and makes a 'clean' start, allowing the signal to be detected.

Cannot change paper size in drawers

Few things check, first if the paper trays have manual adjustable levers that tell the printer what type of paper is in the tray. The other option is to go to your printer menu from your operating system and check paper assginment on settings.

Can't print from bottom drawer, will only print from tray,

There are at least three possible solutions. The first two are simple the third is fairly complicated unlr=ess you can read a hex dump of a print file. 1) Use the front panel "Paper Menu" to select the tray. 2) Check the driver settings to make sure the driver is set to "Auto" or the correct tray. 3) Set the driver to "Print to File". When prompted to name the print file, name it "tray_fail". If you do not know how to read this file, send it to me at and I'll be happy to take a look at it and see I I can correct the problem. Don

Won't print to right tray

I had this problem and solved it like this:

  1. Right click on printer driver in printers and faxes.
  2. Select printing preferences
  3. Choose paper quality tab
  4. Set paper size (A4 in my case)
  5. Set paper source to printer-auto-select. This is different from the default "Automatically select"

As long as tray 1 is empty, tray 2 should now kick in. Setting the paper source as tray 2 didn't work at all.

You seem to have to set this on each client computer though - even if you are sharing the printer over a network (4200n).

Lexmark T642 Slow Slow Printing

I've had this problem with the Lexmarks's T640 printers connected via USB to Mac OS 10.5.5 machines.

Problem: The Mac OS' default resolution of 1200 DPI for this printer causes the printer to have to rasterize the print job again AFTER it arrives at the printer. The printer does a painfully slow job of this.

Solution: Change the default resolution of your print jobs to "600dpi".


1.)Call up the printer settings menu by starting a print job and clicking the up-arrow next to "Printer" box.

2.)Click on the drop-down list with the name of your application and choose "Printer Features".
Change your resolution to "600dpi". Oddly, I find that "1200dpi Image Quality" is almost as fast.

3.)It might be a good idea to "Save as" this new configuration in the "Presets" menu at the top of your list.

You should notice a tenfold increase in the time it takes the printer to actually produce print jobs now.

Additionally, in the "Color Matching" settings (you can get there by changing from the "Printer Features" settings), be sure that you are using "ColorSync" so your printer isn't having to do any additional processing in that area.
