Hi there the TICK mark just means that it is your default printer. Do you know the IP address for your printer if so follow instructions below.

  • Press Start
  • Select Run
  • Type CMD then press enter
  • Screen will open type the following " ping xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" then press enter (xxx = IP numbers i.e 192.168.42.1)
  • If reply getting there is nothing wrong with network. If not right hand click on the printer icon and select properties.
  • Select Ports as check that the port is the same for the IP address.
  • If not add new port Standard TCP/IP follow on screen instructions.
  • Try changing the network cable.
Hope this helps
Thanks J

Printing blank pages


I am assuming that the printer is connected to a network. Please check the network cables to make sure they are secured, and then try printing the network setup page. The network setup page will show status connected. If the status is not connected, contact your system support person to make sure the network is functioning correctly


Before sending a job to print, make sure the printer is set to ready state. Ready or Power Saver appears on the display. Please check the status of the toner and check that you are using the correct printer driver.


Printer driver is available on the Lexmark website for download. If no fix, for other information please click the link http://bit.ly/k2p8B5


For additional assistance, please contact Lexmark technical support.

900 service rip software


The 900 error usually indicates a software or communications problem. If the 900 error occurs only when the printer is receiving information from a network or computer, you should contact your software/network support. If the error occurs when the printer is idle or not connected to the network or PC, there may be a printer hardware or connection problem. Sometimes a bad connection with an Internal Network Adapter/Network Card can cause the problem. The first thing to check is the base printer.


To check the base printer


Turn off the printer and disconnect every cable, except for the power cord.

Turn on the printer and see if the error returns.

If the error does not return, try to print a test page from the Test Menu.

If the test page prints correctly, the printer

900 service RIP software error - how do you fix it?


Please try to do the following steps. Remove parallel, USB, and/or network connections andrecycle the printer's power so that it is operating as a standalone machine. If it powers up to the Ready state, print the MenuSettings page(s) from the Utilities Menu. If the printer works without error while disconnectedeither from the network or a locally attached computer, there is a strong possibilitythat a corrupted file or network/parallel/USB connection is causing theerror. Look for patterns such as aparticular file or a particular workstation generating the error when data issent to the printer. Clear the print queue and connect all cables back andturn the printer back on. Resubmit the print job(s) and try printing again b> If the error will not clear, please take note of thesecondary code and contact Lexmark Technical Support.

Printer FREEZES and prints blank pages


I DON'T THINK ITS THE PRINTER. THIS IS A SOFTWARE OR NETWORK ISSUE.

1 IT SOUNDS LIKE CORRUPTED FILES BEING SENT TO PRINTER, OFTEN PDFS. CLEARED ALL PRINT JOBS? ALSO AS400 PRINT QUEUE?
2 ALSO SOUNDS LIKE A VIRUS POSSIBLY "Adot.BAT". go online to housecall.com and do online virus scan.
3 OR, SOME OTHER CHANGE OR NEW DEVICE ON THE NETWORK MIGHT BE INTERFERING.

FIRST, TRY ISOLATING THE PRINTER FROM YOUR NETWORK. UNPLUG THE PRINTER FROM ALL DATA INPUTS AND RESTORE DEFAULTS. (LEFT OR RIGHT BUTTON TO SERVICE MENU, PUSH CHECK BUTTON, LEFT OR RIGHT TO RESTORE DEFAULTS, PUSH CHECK BUTTON).
IT SHOULD RESTART, THEN CALIBRATE. NEXT PRINT A CONFIGURATION PAGE FROM ITS MENUS, IF NOT TWO PAGES NET CARD IS DEAD.
IF OK SO FAR, TRY CONNECTING IT JUST TO A LAPTOP. USB ONLY THIS WAY, OR USE A NETWORK HUB, SEPARATE FROM YOUR NETWORK. INSTALL ANY OLD LASERJET DRIVER OR PRINTER ON THE LAPTOP JUST TO TEST IT.

IF ALL THIS WORKS, THE PRINTER IS FINE. BEFORE RECONNECTING THE PRINTER TO YOUR OFFICE COMPUTERS, FIX YOUR NETWORK & INTERNET OR VPN PROBLEMS.
THEN, DELETE ALL HP LASERJET PRINTERS & UNINSTALL ALL HP DRIVERS ON ALL NETWORKED COMPUTERS AND SERVER. (EXCEPT ZIPPED DOWNLOADED DRIVERS). START NEW HP PRINTER INSTALLATION COMPLETELY FROM ZERO. REINSTALL ONLY THE DRIVER YOU NEED. PCL5 IS RECOMMENDED.
