Open your printers folder and make sure you do NOT have a bunch of duplicate installs. If you do, delete them all and then install just one. Be sure you have a good USB cable. Try using the same cable on some other USB device that usually works. If that device wont work with the printers USB cable, its most likely a bad cable. also try using a different USB port. I have seen a lot of computers that have a problem with USB ports suddenly dieing for no apparent reason.

Unable to print


With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

To fix a fouled install :
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the sofware asks for the printer connect it and continue

I found the drivers by going to My Computer > OS (C:) > Drivers > Printer > deleted the file folder.
I then unpluged the printer, reinstalled the driver from the Lexmark Site (http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi#), restarted and it worked.
Good luck.

I'm going to need more information here. What operating system are you using? If you're using Vista, the CD that came with your printer is probably useless. You first must download the Vista drivers from here: http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:439:0:0&emeaframe=&fileID=11493&searchLang=en&searchLang=en&os_group=Windows%20Vista Here's the installation instructions: Attention Windows Vista Users If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.
