I am trying to print from my Lexmark X73. I have reinstalled the software, but it's not installing the printer portion. It is only installing the scanner. Why is it doing that, and can I fix it?

Run this clean uninstall utility

http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:94:0:0&emeaframe=&fileID=1236&searchLang=en&os_group=WinXP

download the drivers from lexmark

http://www.downloaddelivery.com/downloads/cpd/CJXP73LE.exe

plug in your printer and install the drivers.

if this does not work then extract the driver file you downloaded "CJXP73LE.exe", go to start ->settings->printer and faxes....install a new printer (make sure local printer and auto-detect are checked)...follow it through and your printer should install. if at any time it asks for drivers or you want to manually point to the drivers then browse to the location where you extracted the "CJXP73LE.exe" file. you can download a program like "winrar" (type it in google) to extract it.

Properties Settings for my Lexmark X73 are missing


Hi Bobby,
Good idea! Uninstall the Lexmark software. (Restart windows).
Before you reinstall the driver software download this free cleaning software & run it.
http://www.pctuneuptips.com/recommends/clean/?gclid=CL2RiIrTmpICFSFMGgodODIPzg
(Restart windows again when it has finished cleaning).
Rather than using your CD's go to the link & download the driver software. I'm not sure if your CD is the same (Date wise) or if the web site's software is the latest. Re-install the driver software.
While at the Lexmark link above, scroll down to the drivers section.
You'll see that Lexmark does not support Vista. From forum post others with the same printer post it will not function with Vista.
Here is a forum site about Vista & the X73;
http://www.vistax64.com/vista-hardware-devices/172631-lexmark-x73-printer-wont-work-vista.html

Good luck Bobby!

I have installed the software for a lexmark x73 all in one printer, and it won't print a direct copy or align new ink cartridges. the comuter i installed it on is running windows xp.


Sometimes more than one copy of the printer can get installed, so try this:

  1. From Control Panel > Printers remove ALL copies of the Printer.
  2. Unplug the USB cable to the printer and re-boot the computer.
  3. Reinstall the software and then plug the USB cable back in and XP will find the printer.
That should FixYa...

Cannot print unless I turn off computer and then reboot.


I'm not a big fan of Lexmark in general in part due to their software and drivers. For me this type of behavior from their printers/software became common about a year ago, the fix being to use the more generic Windows supplied printer drivers. I would suggest that you uninstall all software the printer installed and remove all of the printers print queue(s)including any associated with the fax function. Unplug the printer USB cable from the computer, reboot your PC and reinstall the printer from scratch using your original installatin CD.
