Look under control panel ,printers and faxs, right mouse click on your printer displayed in the list , then from the list, select properties . Next from the tabs on top , select ports, from the ports list select the usb connection on the list or if wireless you should have a lexmark connection port showing as well. Its just you havent got the correct port selected.Dave

When trying to print message comes up 'incorrect port detection' what does this mean?


It could be that the port for the printer in the Control Panel is not configured correctly. You may refer to this article on No Communications Error When Trying to Print or Scan. If that doesn't help, I would suggest you uninstall the Lexmark software.
Download the updated Lexmark X2350 driver (Windows only) from the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/i4Axqw. NOTE: Use Vista driver in Windows 7.

My lexmark 4300 series says incorrect port detected


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.

My Lexmark 4550 will not sacn wirelessly, how do I


Hello. Try to run the installation cd in your computer again. If you haven't tried to uninstall the software from your computer, the cd should give you three options: Install a Printer, Repair/Update and Install Additional Softwares. Choose Repair/Update and just let it run and finish the installation. Also, make sure to allow all Lexmark and printer communications in your firewall. Try to scan wirelessly again. If problem needs further troubleshooting, I advise you to call Lexmark.

Incorrect Port Detected


According to Features and Specs on Lexmarks website, this is a All in One? i.e Fax, Printer, Scan & Copy? also it's a Network type?

If so have you chosen the correct settings via the Printers Dispay and Control Panel? ...... I assume you have and everythinh in Device manager looks good, i.e no Yellow and or Red Icons over anything listed there, especially USB....correct?

If your Vista is the 32 Bit then the driver file should be: cjb5000enOSS.exe (87.7MB)
If Windows Vista x63 then it will be: cjq5000enOSS.exe (132.76MB)

Hope the above helped,

cheers,

Bastian

Hello I can't seem to get my x5650 lexmark printer to print think my computer has it set up via waveless instead of usb.


When you loaded the drivers there may have been an option to select parallel port or USB if so you may have selected the wrong one. If so reload drivers and watch out for this option. Hope this helps
