Hello, are you sure it installed correctly. It sounds like it definitely cannot communjcate with pc. First try making sure in the settings drop down menu of your printer window in pc, make sure work offline selection is not checked. This often disables printer printing from pc. Check all settings as well. If this does not help i suggest completely uninstalling it and reinstalling it as well. Also, check to see this printer has driver for your windows and pc specifics. Even brand new printers can need updated drivers as the time they are manufactured and the time they are sold, can be a big time gap and new windows service packs and OS can come into play and need new drivers.

Can I get the installation CD for my printer it is like new, bought used but no CD came with it, the Lexmark X3550 or can I download it? And could you tell me how disassemble the printer, my grandson put...


Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark X3550 Printer Driver on your computer. Select your operating system > download > execute the file. Follow the instructions on your computer screen.
For your other concern, if you're willing and physically able, you may also turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.

Cant connect lexmark X3550 to laptop wirelessly..


If you are trying to connect to a network printer you need to install a network printer NOT a PC install. You would have to browse for the "Remote" printer, from the CLIENT. The printer that is on the "Master" PC will have to have the printer already installed and "shared" as well, FIRST. Then you go to the remote and install a NETWORKED printer....find it on the network, and connect, it will actually get the drivers from the "Master" PC, see. Plus BOTH PC's will have to have a name password & and be on the same "Workgroup" as well. If you want to enable documents to be exchanged to print between PC's you will have to enable "Sharing" on each, Drive, or Folders as well, if you wish.

Cannot print from laptop to printer using wireless print server


This is probably the Software Firewall on your laptop

you should probably tell your firewall software that you have an internal network (Laptop-desktop-printer) you should add the IP range of the wireless network as a trusted network.

Lexmark x3550 colour all in one printer


  1. Go to the Lexmark Find Drivers/Product Selector page.
  2. Enter Lexmark X3550 under "Search by Model", and click the Search button.
  3. Select your OS from the dropdown (Win2k in your case).
  4. Click Download Now.
  5. If you're asked to Save or Run, choose to Run (it keeps you from having to go find the file and double-click it later).

XP refuses to restart after installing printer


It’s not uncommon for software to mess up during installation.
Or even have a bad CD. (Please make sure you're windows XP software is up to date, run windows update service).
Since you are able to get into windows, open control panel, open add/remove programs & uninstall the Lexmark printer software. After uninstall restart the PC. Power on the printer before windows loads. See if windows runs with the printer connected & powered on. Less Its driver software. Windows should see the printer & ask for the software. (If so, it may be corrupted software). Go to Lexmark for driver software & download it.

Try reinstalling using the online driver software for the X3550 printer. If it still stops you're windows, I would suggest replacing the USB cable. If replacing the cable does not help & windows does not load, there could be something wrong with the printer.
If this is a new printer you should contact Lexmark.
http://support.lexmark.com/static/229-1-0-582.html
Lexmark will suggest all of the above. You'll be three steps ahead of support. Lastly, I have come across an issue from time to time installing printers software into Windows XP systems.
(It matters not the printer model). Windows was missing basic printer files needed to operate any given printer. The fix for those systems was a complete fresh install of windows. Its suggested to never use a copied windows CD. It matters.

Good Luck electrics!
If I can help you further, feel free to post.
There is rarely 1 way to fix every thing.
