Question about Lexmark X1240 All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

My Lexmark x1240 won't print anything. I click on the print icon for whatever it is that I'm trying to print. Instead of getting the ''Printing Started'' confirmation, Windows (Vista) prompts me to save whatever it is that I'm printing, even though the documents I've been trying to print are already saved to my hard drive. It tries to get me to save it in .xps format(whatever that is. I have no clue). When I try to open the All-In-One Center, Windows says it's searching for the applications for first time use, even though I've used this printer several times without any problems. The software is installed,too. And, the printer acts like it's having trouble feeding the paper, and then the power button flashes like it would if it needed paper. Anyone know what to do?

Uninstall the printer and reinstall it if it says it is printing to your printer. under printers your printer should be set as default. test by selecting print from the menu. it should come up to a screen showing you which printer you are printing to.

SOURCE: lexmark X1240: tried to uninstall and reinstall

Please make sure that the printer is actually VISTA compatible (it should say it on the box) If it is compatible then there is a good chance that the drivers need to be updated. (even if you just bought it) Your first option would be to download the driver directly from Lexmark.com (forget the CD that came with it) Your other option is to download the drivers for LEXMARK X1250 (I have tried this many times with other printers and they worked just fine) I have also used these two web sites to download the drivers for other printers and it seems to work ok so far. Here are the links to the X1250 http://driverzone.com/device.php?id=81664 http://www.siliconguide.com/drivers/device/112/ ...Best of luck to you, I hope I was able to help.
