I'm assuming you're using Windows XP. If not, these directions may differ a little.

  1. Click Start > Printers and Faxes.
  2. Right-click on Lexmark X75, and then click on Properties.
  3. Click on the Ports tab.
  4. Find Lexmark X75 under the Printers column (or look for which item under the Port column is checked).
  5. Chances are it somehow got changed to COM or LPT. Find any available USB port and check it. Click Apply.
  6. Try to print. If it doesn't work now, you'll probably get a different error, something like "Cannot Communicate". If that happens, go back to theProperties window and try checking any other USB ports you see there. If there aren't any more to try, you may have to uninstall and reinstall the drivers to get it working.
Good luck!

Hello!

Yes the problem is with your printer port setting, to view or to correct the printer port setting,
- go to CONTROL PANEL
- click or open Printer or Faxes
- right click your Lexmark printer and click properties
- a menu will appear, choose or click PORT tab
- at the Port tab listing, choose USB port and click ok after choosing the right port.

then you should be able to print properly after the right configuration.

Hope I was able to help.

This printer and this software (on your laptop) want to hold hands directly ... not through a proxy. You have solved your own issue ... plug the Lex into the new computer.

I am getting an error message saying Incorrect port detected. The printer is designed to work with USB cables only. The current software setting is not set to USB port. In my printer properties dialog


Do you hear the connect/disconnect sounds when you plug the USB cable into your computer? If you do not, then the system is not recognizing the printer USB port.

Here is what I would do:
1. In the Devices and Printers section of the control panel, right-click on the printer icon, and select printer properties, then select the Ports Tab. Delete any ports connections for the printer. There could be several for the same printer.
2. Uninstall all Lexmark drivers.
3. Make sure that the printer does not show up in the Devices and printers under control panel. If the printer still shows up, remove the device by right-clicking on the icon, and select Remove device.
4. Reboot the computer.
5. Re-install the printer software. The software should detect the printer on the USB port.

Good luck.

How do i change the language bak to English? And how do i print from my macbook laptop onto the printer


TO CHANGE THE LANGUAGE:

From the printer control panel, press the 'Spanner' icon.

Press the right arrow button, and then press OK

Press OK again.

Press the arrow buttons until the language that you want appears on the display, and then press OK.
If you are sure, press the right arrow button, and then press OK to change the language.
To print from your macbook laptop you may have to install additional software onto your laptop from the installation CD. Insert the CD and wait for the 'Welcome' screen to appear. (Note if the 'Welcome' screen does not appear after a minute, then click the CD icon on the desktop). Double click 'Install' and follow the screen instructions.

Some additional notes that may apply to your machine(s):

If the printer is connected to a desktop computer through the rear USB port and you decide to connect a laptop computer to the printer through the Quick Connect laptop port, then the Quick Connect laptop port connection overrides the rear USB port connection. The active print jobs on the desktop computer may be cancelled. Pause or cancel active jobs on the desktop computer before switching between ports.

To summerise:

Pause or cancel active jobs on the desktop computer.

Connect a USB cable to the laptop computer and then to the Quick Connect laptop port on the front of the printer.

Warning-Potential Damage: Do not plug in or remove the USB cable from the Quick Connect laptop port while a memory device is being accessed by the printer.

If you have not yet installed the printer software on your laptop then install it now.

Hope this helps

Print jobs no longer arrive on printer


try this: make sure you do not have any pending printjobs (cancel all documents if there's one) then delete all printer icons. Reboot the computer then launch the printer server software to locate it. add that network printer & make it your default.

probability is that some of your applications are sending printjobs to the wrong queue (like the one for the USB connection).
