Installing lexmark 4530

Can some one please help me! I installed my lexmark 4530 on my computer about six months ago. I recently went to configure it to wireless and have had nothing but problems. I uninstalled it all from my computer but my disk is broke in half:( I have multiple times tried to download the software and drivers off the website (uninstalling each time before I try it again.) but i have had no luck. I can not get it to work. Everytime it is a different problem. I'm not very good at this sort of thing... Plase can someone lend some advice?

    basically these printers are worthless. I knew better than to buy a Lexmark, but I bought one anyways - waste of time!!

    I have had a similar problem with my Lexmark 4530 printer. We installed it with no problem on our laptop with Windows XP operating system. We loved it, and it worked great for about 8 months, then we went through Hurricane Ike, and were without power for 2 weeks. Ever since then, we have not been able to get the printer to print wireless. It still prints with the power cord, but we bought it for the wireless feature. I have misplaced my disk, and have downloaded the driver from the Internet, after de-installing the old one. No matter what we do, we can not get the wireless side to print. Help!!

    Same problem here with reinstalling the Lexmark 4530. I am ready to toss it in the garbage.

    We bought this with a rebate (so it only cost $30 if I ever get the rebate) but it won't print wirelessly. I have a Mac laptop OS 10.5 (leopard) and the driver that came with the printer only worked up to the 10.4 operating system. Luckily there was an updated, downloadable driver on the Lexmark site. 

    It printed and scanned fine wirelessly at first, but then printing stopped working and today so did the scanning. It's connected to the wireless network (and the Wi-Fi signal is green) but it doesn't seem to recognize or be recognized anymore.... frustrating.

I have Vista on my system I have had the printer for about 2 years- but I did have problems at the beginning getting it to work with the wireless feature with my laptop- I had to reinstall Vista- it was a vista conflict actually not with the printer. Since then I haven't had problems with the wireless feature with my laptop it does work.

Choose the "install software on additional computer" option. Let it install as typical.

After it's all done, reboot.

Go to add a printer as an adminstraitor, choose add local printer, look for the Lexmark 3500~4500 virtual port and select.

It should tlak to the printer and ask you for the driver, and it should acept the Lexmark 3500~4500

You should be good to go. If not reboot and try another test page.

I had sucess on 2 vista machines doing this this way, also worked for the scanning as well.

The firmware update for the Lexmark Pro901 will help fix this problem. Visit the Lexmark website at download and install the update. Running the "Deep Clean Printhead" maintenance will also help.

I have installed the lexmark 4200 program and am trying to get to the fax set up page. I have went ot start, programs but dont see lexmark 4200 series

Computer has to do nothing with fax setup.

Inbound and outbound fax happen through the lexmark device without the help of computer. Computer use the device for the printing purpose only.

All fax related configuration has to be done on the lexmark through the help of its display screen and buttons

Lexmark x2500

I have had the same problem when I went to redo my Windows Vista Machine. The answer is simple. Install the software from the installation disc that came with your printer. Next go to and download the driver package for your printer and install that. Now a window should pop up asking you if you want to install over the original or make a copy, MAKE A COPY.. After installation is done open lexmark studio and pick to open the copy version and there you go, you can now use your lexmark studio, and for some reason after you open the program once like this the original one works!!!!!!!!
