Lexmark Ed260 does not print

OK, if it's timing out that means the printer is not visible to the network. When you used the setup disc, you said it found the same address? What address does it detect? It will mostly likely start with 192.168.x.x. During the setup process does it offer to use DHCP vs a static IP address?

Do you know the IP addresses of the 8 machines on your network? You'll want to make sure the printer doesn't use the same address as that would cause an IP conflict and prevent it from working properly on the network. Preferably you'll want to use an address outside the scope. For example, if your DHCP server is set to give out addresses from then you should make the printer Hope this makes sense.

If that still doesn't get you anywhere, connect the printer directly to a PC via USB and make sure you can print. It's possible it's an issue with the printer, but my guess it's just a network config issue.

Izaakzakei cant get my printer connected to my laptop i have downloaded the driver but its still not working


You need to install the softeware first with the printer unplugged from the computer!

Insert your softeware disk and restart your computer, if computer doesn't detect new software when it is rebooting....than go into your control on install new software.

Once that is installed, you'll need to restart again with the printer hooked up this time.

Again, if computer doesn't detect new hardware, go into control panel, click on install new printer, you will have to select the make and model, or if you have the disk, select have disk, then computer should install the hardware for you printer.

After installed, restart see if if new software and hardware is detected and is being installed.

Go to your printers, from your control panel, and see if your printer is there, if not select, add new printer, it will take you through the process from there. Make sure you select this to be your default printer!

Happy printing!

Lan setting went off after formating my pc

Try restarting your computer several times if the new OS you installed is XP. However, if your new OS is Windows 7, there is still no problem. If you have not yet installed a windows 7 drivers cd,you will need to get the driver cd for windows 7, and I'm sure there are other things you've not noticed. Otherwise, if your drivers have been correctly installed, just restart your system; the lan driver will automatically install on system start up.If it doesn't install, you should get the lan drivers, depending on your product. Finally, I have both HP and DELL drivers, but I don't have a site yet. Hope the above information helped.

How can i install the canon pixma ip 1800 without disk?

Go to this web page:

IP1800 Support

If the "Drivers & Downloads" tab is not selected, select it.

Enter your operating system in the drop-down menu.

Drivers and additional software links will be displayed. Click on the file name to download them.

Save the file to your computer. (Desktop is easiest if you are not familiar with placing the files in a folder.)

You can then install the driver/software from your computer.

Thanks for using Fixya.

My cannon printer pixma ip1800 cannot detect ink pls help me...

If after you install the cartridge you get a yellow light and error message:
“The following may have run out of color. The function for
detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled since the
ink level cannot be correctly detected. If you want to
continue printing with out this function, press the printer’s
start button. Canon recommends using new genuine Canon
cartridges in order to obtain optimum quality.”

Do not click “cancel printing”. Press printer start button
to start printing. This action will bypass the ink level
detection from the recycled cartridge. It will not damage the
printer! With a recycled cartridge this action needs to be
done one time.
A full recycled cartridge ink level may not display correctly.
It may show empty.
If you want to check the ink level, you can do a “Nozzle
check” by follow the directions below:
Go to menu File select print click on “Property” click
on “Maintenance”
Click on “Nozzle check” to print out the color check.
Click on “Cartridge Alignment” to align the cartridge.

See pictures for above process at Inktelligent ip 1800 topic

Also the refills refered to above are at the IP 1800 inkfilling page
