Going to try to connect to an XP machine and see if if it's a vista problem.

    Installed the software and printed test page no problem, but my computer would not shut down properly afterwards. Once I had my computer back up and running, the printer was showing only a blinking orange light. I cannot print a thing now. Rather frustrated!!!

    yes, same problem here. I have installed all the programs and updated the drivers several times. The wireless connection is unstable. Running via USB cable now. I can only print one document at a time then other documents are in que forever. Frustrating!

I just set up this printer two days ago - got the wireless indicator to finally go from orange to green (not sure how, it always said it was connected to my network and everything looked good when i had it print a wireless setup page)...
i've got it on a mac OSX and windows vista (the main reason i wanted wireless printing! two laptops in the household) - both are spotty on when the computer will connect and print - more often not than so.
it's driving me crazy, as i haven't had too much time to figure it out myself...

Have you talked with Lexmark Technical Support? I suspect you may have to escalate this beyond level one. Vista on Mac is likely to have issues that differ from other Vista environments.

Printer installed & ready but wont print


found solution: driver software had an error while installing & only installed half the proper software. i had to uninstall the lexmark 5200 serious software completely & download it again from the lexmark website.

Please help me :(


Hello, you should uninstall the old 'printer' and old drivers, turn off your popup blocker, and reinstall the printer with the new Vista drivers for seres X2310, X2330, X2350.>>> Driver Download <<<
Click the link for a page with several driver options for Vista.

Print this page to a PDF file and save to your desktop for reference until you can print paper documents.

If you do not have a PDF print program, http://www.bullzip.com/ has a FREE (TOTALLY) WARE program for VISTA. I have installed, tested and yes, it works.

You may need to access the Run Command to initiate printing.
How to Access the Run Command in Microsoft Windows Vista Background

The Run command, which was available in the Start menu of Windows 2000 and Windows XP, is not visible in Windows Vista.

Accessing the Run command in Windows Vista

Most keyboards have a Windows key, usually located between the Ctrl and Alt keys. If you hold down the Windows key and press 'R', a Run prompt will appear.

This may be useful if you need to start msconfig in order to limit start items, or msinfo32 to gather system information files (files with a .nfo extension).


Msconfig has added a Tools section. Several common tasks can be managed from here, including Regedit, Event Viewer, System Information, Command Prompt, and Task Manager. To open one of these tasks, highlight the task and click Launch.

Lemark x5150 vista


Just as you can draw out the image using CorelDRAW, you can also use the File> "From Camera or Scanner" function in Microsoft Paint. It bypasses the driver.
